My goodness I LOVE hosting workshops. I always end up with about 1000 amazing images every time, no matter the destination. This particular time I joined Rachel Nielsen for a fabulous Lightfinders Retreat in Pensacola, Florida. We had the fabulous opportunity to work with Rainey’s Closet, who supplied us with an enormous array of dresses and head pieces, not only for the little girls but for the gorgeous women who modeled for our couples portraits. Not only that, but we also received two AMAZING couture dresses from Bentley & Lace, and we used them at Ft. Pickens, which is a ridiculously awesome place to shoot, even if I have to rely only on my memory of that shoot because I came home sans the camera card with all those pictures *cry*. Still, with two perfect couples, an adorable family (outfits selected with help from Honeytree Style & Select), and a slew of stunning children, I had plenty of images to play with when I got home! And now I’m sharing them with you!
Rachel and I want to have more of these retreats, which are always full of learning, growing, and lots and lots and lots of picture taking. We help attendees find the LIGHT, no matter the conditions, at any time of day. Past retreats in Oregon and Utah were unreal they were so awesome. Would you like to join us sometime? Where should we go next????
These are the only images I have from Ft. Pickens but be sure to take a peek at some of the attendees’ images on Instagram!
The family on the second day! We also saw enormous spiders and about 10000000000 fire ants.
The third day we had an optional shoot at a horse ranch at sunrise. OH my goodness, all the little girls were so cute and the couple was drop-dead gorgeous and so in love (just like the first night – how lucky are we????).
Oh, and one last thing. I road-tripped it with Beth of Three Willows Photography and we brought our girls. We stopped the day before in New Orleans and couldn’t resist a couple of shoots….
