I have been dying to share this experience with everyone! And finally have a moment to catch up on blogs, or attempt to:)...
At the beginning of March, I treated myself to a photography "shootout". Yes, It sounds exactly like what you are picturing. Lots of people who love photography getting together and having a photo frenzy, well sort of :)
Katie Myrick with Katie Myrick Photography and Kelly Parnell with Photos by Kelly had the brilliant idea to combine their talents and passion and host the first ever "Make It Click - Photography Shootout"
Oh Boy, was I in for a treat!
This was a day of not only new experiences, chances to learn, and LOTS of photography fun, but it was a chance to meet new friends. Katie and Kelly went above and beyond to welcome us, treat us to lots of delicious food and good times and help us take our photography to the next level.
Hands on learning is what it is all about, and it was a blast!
Throughout the day, myself and 9 other ladies divided up into groups and approached different types of shoots, wide-eyed and ready for anything!
Starting off the day, we photographed a passion filled family lifestyle session with the Long Family. Next up was Mr. Hudson, Katie's own absolutely adorable and total camera ham of a son enjoying an unforgettable bubbles and bath shoot. Then we moved on to a glamour child session, styled with astonishing attention to detail by Kelly with flowers provided by Exquisite Occasions. The model, Nadia, couldn't have nailed the session more perfectly! Last on the list of the day was a stylized (and drop dead gorgeous) senior, Somer Love. Katie's Rockin' Senior vision came to life in OH so many wonderful ways with hair and makeup done by Sarah Daugherty.
It was a perfect day, meeting other people who share my passion, learning new approaches and having a blast.
I can't wait to meet up with these ladies again!
Enjoy a glimpse of the day!!
