I believe karma, I believe in giving back, I believe in teaching how to pose such precious models (newborns) safely... I believe in always pushing your knowledge and expertise... and as enquiries began to flood my inbox I decided to run my first workshop.
For much of the year I was leading up to this first of what will likely become a bi-annual set of workshops. The Maternity and Newborn Styling Workshop which was held at Grange Cleveland Winery in Lancefield took place on a gorgeous Spring day, perfect weather, gorgeous models and a stunning location... I could not have been happier with how it ran, and the photographers I met.
The ground work in putting this even together was all consuming, the workbooks for attendee's, the running sheet, arranging models and planning the workflow for the day. There was a lot of back and forth with my featured prop supplier, Addy and Gus, with attendee's, enquiries and with the venue itself. There were sleepless nights as I put the event together, and made certain that things ran smoothly.
I was exhausted after the long day of setting up, running the workshop and then packing up the gear, but drove the long drive home with a contented smile on my face... there will indeed be more workshops, including interstate and even overseas ventures in the coming year.
Stay tuned to Facebook and the blog for announcements of dates for future workshops in the new year.
Here's some highlights from the day.
