I was so excited when Amber reached out to me for a one on one photography workshop! We scheduled her workshop after I was coming out of my maternity leave so it was perfect timing for me to jump back in! She is expecting a little one herself and wanted to learn from me how I manage to maintain my business as well as invest in growing my family. I have to admit it is not easy at times and can be a balancing act, however, it is incredibly rewarding to be able to do both things that I love most in life! I have no doubt that Amber will feel the same as she pursues a similar balance. We spent the day shooting, editing, talking business and just about everything else you could possibly think of! Brittany and her horse, Double, were our models for the day. Isn't Brittany just captivating in her Kenneth Winston gown?! I am still swooning looking at these images even after days of staring at them! Moffitt Oaks provided the most perfect setting for this natural beauty and her handsome companion! Allison of AHSpecialties rocked her impeccable hair and makeup skills and Striking Stems brought the ultimate wow factor with the most vibrant florals. Come on Spring! So ready for all this vivid color and everything to be in bloom again! Here are some of the faves!
Elizabeth and I had an awesome day photographing Jessica at the always gorgeous Tomball venue, Moffitt Oaks! Elizabeth was a fellow photography student with me at Sam Houston State and wanted to come visit me to learn how to push her photography business to the next level. It was so great to reconnect with her again and spend the day talking about everything you can imagine from posing to camera functions, lighting, post processing, workflow and all the behind the scenes business matters as well. Allison with AHSpecialties perfected Jessica's look with soft, loose curls and airbrush makeup that was so natural and glowing! Ashley with Striking Stems helped pull it all together with the most beautiful Fall inspired bouquet and bridal crown. This laid back, Fall vibe perfectly matched the venue! We even had a little bit of rain showers but that did not stop us! The cloudy skies made for such soft light and a few shots with a cute clear umbrella was meant to be!

One of my favorite things to do is teach about what I am passionate about. Stephanie joined me for a jam packed full day of everything photography related and we made sure to kick off the day with hands on learning by photographing our lovely models, Dana & Norman. These two were so sweet and genuinely in love! It was a perfect day for a Spring inspired shoot at Moffitt Oaks. Allison with AH Specialties did an incredible job enhancing Dana's natural beauty with airbrush makeup and styled her hair perfectly! And a huge thanks to Moffitt Oaks for providing the gorgeous backdrop. If you have not checked out this all inclusive rustic-chic wedding venue, hop on over to their site! One of the major perks of teaching workshops, is I am guaranteed a new friend by the end of the day! Stephanie, I had such a great time getting to know you and look forward to watching you grow as a photographer. For more information about Square One Workshops, click here.
