I don’t even know where to begin. My short, but intense time in Austin, TX was nothing short of fab-u-lous…once I finally got there! Suffice it to say:
1. I will never travel the day before I need to be somewhere again if I can help it; and
2. I’m not fond of airports that have armrests on every couch…makes it hard to sleep when you’re crashing for the night…
But that was then and once I arrived, it was quickly forgotten because I hit the ground running. The workshop with Michele Anderson of Pinkle Toes Photography was amazing for so many reasons. For me, I think it was the overall experience. We had an amazing, diverse (yet oddly similar) SMALL group of women with like minded goals and amazing abilities that clicked instantly…I can honestly say I hope to keep in touch with all of them! In addition, Michele ran a tight ship, but I never felt rushed or “done”. In fact I didn’t want it to end!! Topics were diverse, experience was a mix of hands on and discussions and the level of collaboration was inspiring. I came home refreshed (okay, bagged, but a good kind of bagged), excited (hopped up on caffeine) and ready to rock and roll (but I promise I won’t sing!!).
Here’s a few behind the scenes shots from day one where we got to watch Michele work her newborn voodoo (seriously, we had to wake this baby up…I says pardon???):
The last one on the right is titled: “Stick ‘em Up…Photographers Style!”
And then we also got to take a few. He was such a sweet baby, Mom looked amazing and Dad was a trooper as he was having major seasonal allergies! You’d never guess it from these shots though, would you?!
Until next time,
