Julie Paisley Photography Workshop
This past weekend I packed up and headed south for the Julie Paisley Photography workshop. Julie has always been an inspiration to me, but I hesitated with the investment and time involved in attending a workshop. I’m beyond grateful that I went outside my comfort zone and decided to participate in the workshop because it opened my eyes to so many aspects about my photography style and interests that I couldn’t visualize before.
One of the biggest suggestions that was stressed at the workshop was the need to specialize- whether it be weddings/engagements or newborns/children/maternity. I have worked so hard at portfolio building and photographing all types of sessions over the last few months that I never thought about specializing in one area. The night the workshop ended, I tossed and turned till 3:30am debating which avenue I would choose. If you know me, you know that I love weddings. If my darling husband would let me, I would marry him a million times again. I love the emotion, the simplicity, the symbolism, the beauty, and the happiness that weddings bring. On the flip side, there is nothing that warms my heart quite like a newborn baby or a big huge smile reflecting the innocence of a child.
So what I decided… I haven’t decided! I *LOVE* photographing happiness and emotion- whether it be at an intimate wedding or through a child’s eyes- and until I’m swayed one way or another, I’ll continue to capture all of life’s precious moments.
At the workshop, I had the opportunity to photograph a beaming bride & groom and the most adorable Nashville musician!
