12 inspiring hours

That's Kari in the above photo, waving at me shooting the 'momarazzi' in her backyard :)

I spent all day yesterday at a photography workshop - yep that is right, 12 straight hours that flew by all too fast. It was an incredible and inspiring day to be surrounded by 10 other photographers, doing what we all love and have it being led by one of the twin cities most sought after, talented, and humble photographers - Kari Layland http://www.kariphotography.com/ . If you haven't seen her work before you need to check her out - she's amazing!

Kari invited the crew into her home and spent an entire day sharing with us the knowledge she has acquired after spending the last decade perfecting this wonderful art of photography. It was truly inspiring and I am so thankful for her generous nature in sharing her talent and passion with us. Ever since I came across Kari's website last summer she has been a virtual coach/mentor for me over the the past 9 months or so as I have worked to start my business. I admire her for helping others get started and for always taking the time to answer my silly questions and feel so thankful and blessed to have met her. It is people like Kari who have helped me to make this idea and dream of photography a reality for me so thank you Kari! :)

AND, as great as it was to spend a day with Kari it was equally as wonderful to meet and collaborate with other photographers who love this as much as me and are also juggling kids and life along with this wonderful art. It was such a blast to meet all these women (plus Bob, our token male!) and I truly hope to keep in touch with them so we can help each other out along the way. Thanks everyone - for such an awesome day! :)

Oh, and over the course of the next couple of days I will be posting a few shots from some of the various models we had the pleasure of photographing throughout the day, ranging from newborn to high school senior! So stay tuned....

Teresa, that was so well written! I think we've uncovered another talent of yours!

You are such a sweet heart, thank you so much for the kind words!

I'm really glad you all enjoyed it. I'm super excited about how well it went, and I couldn't sleep more than 4 hours last night, my mind wouldn't shut off. So excited to see what you got from our beautiful models!

Thank you again!
