Close Up Workshop – Knoxville Children’s Photography Workshop

It was a great pleasure to share my approach to children’s photography at the Close Up Workshop this past weekend at Chez Lily Events in Knoxville!  We had a great group of ladies, beautifully designed sets,  and lovely models.  I hope everyone that attended felt challenged, improved, and inspired!  I cannot say enough about the ladies that planned this event.  Leah Teague of Flourish Floral Designs and Shanna Jestice of Ruffles and Rouge  are amazing artists and designers.  I wish every shoot that I ever photographed could be put together by them!  All of you brides out there should check out their portfolio!  You’ll not be disappointed.  And I felt totally humbled to be working alongside Leah Bullard of Leah Bullard Photography.  She inspired me through her passionate and artistic photography style.

All in all, I felt so honored to be grouped with these three ladies.  Just wow.

Other notable contributions to this workshop-

Polkadaisies  Becky custom made the most gorgeous, frilly, girly outfits for our models.  She really outdid herself (as usual)!  Amazing, amazing clothing.


Thanks to Halo Creations and Bevin Bold  for giving me a special deal on goodies for the workshop attendees!
Thanks to my incredible canvas company Pixel 2 Canvas for three awesome give-a-ways!  I’m a customer for life!
When I saw the sets designed for my children shoots, I was, of course, in Heaven!  Lucky me!  The adorable models paired with Polkadaisies clothing was just something magazine-worthy. All the girls had fun, too!
We were shooting right in the middle of the day so the sun was quite harsh.  We made it work, though.  I just love the end results.  So girly and fun!  I can’t wait to see the images from the workshop attendees!
I am thinking of offering {mini sessions} this summer using these fab props!  Stay tuned.  These ladies have me hooked.  I will be looking forward to collaborating with them again!
