Workshop updates, babbles and bits


Hey friends,

So I have received a lot of messages about upcoming workshops and mentoring. I apologize I haven’t had time to reply to each and everyone but wanted to let you know YES!!! I plan to host another workshop early 2014 and will have dates and timelines ready for you all before christmas. (just think… santa can get you a seat for christmas) My minds whirling with options and Id love to hear YOUR thoughts on what you hope to gain from the mentoring. I have loved the format I have done in the past but, the idea of renting a cabin and being tucked away in the hills is calling to me. Natural light, emotion based images, post production and a escape from the day to day all in one workshop. I like!

 hello retreat?




Chrissy - 2013/12/02 - 10:09 pm

Oh my word I want to go. Will you be giving away a seat like last time? {it was last time you did that, wasn’t it?}

Can’t wait to hear the details. Sounds so amazing!

Xan Craven - 2013/12/02 - 10:22 pm

I am friends with Jillian, she introduced me to your photography and I am a huge, huge fan! I am flying out to Utah January 15-27th and I would love the opportunity to have a mentor session or attend a workshop!!

Jen Johnson - 2013/12/02 - 10:23 pm

How do I reserve a spot??? This sounds amazing

amanda - 2013/12/02 - 11:27 pm

i would be interested! i would LOVE the chance to shadow/see your process of how you interact with clients. i have lots of little questions i always wonder but they are things that would be answered by shadowing someone of your amazingness for a day:) oh, and a cabin sounds amazing!

Brittany LeSueur - 2013/12/02 - 11:37 pm

Oh my heart is pounding with excitement, and you better believe I am saving my pennies! ( unfortunately Santa Just bought me something pretty fancy) a retreat would be so fun!!! Yes!!! Would looove to see ways you draw so much raw emotion from your clients, how you find inspiration, and how you get such amazing and dratic color and light in your photos!! Ok I could go on! Crossing my fingers it’s a date I can attend!!!! I think I might be more excited about this than Christmas! ;)

This is my favourite family session ever! Seriously, if this was my family there wouldn’t be enough room on the walls for all the massive canvases I would have of these images!
