One week ago today I was welcoming a cream of the crop group of women from all over the country (& Canada!) into my home for the third #carolineloganworkshop and I think I’m still going through withdrawal without such beautiful, smiling faces filling my home. </3
Ever since January when the workshop sold out within three hours (!) of registration opening, I’ve been counting down the days until May 8th was here. I had very high expectations for this workshop and group of attendees… and to say my expectations were blown out of the water by the fourteen women that opened their hearts and participated in this day is A DRASTIC UNDERSTATEMENT.
By the end of the day and after thirteen straight hours of teaching, we truly felt like family. A very happy and delirious one.
A relative asked me recently “So like… you share it all? You don’t keep a few special top-secret things to yourself? Not even your editing?!” And to be honest, I can’t imagine holding back in the things I share. I truly am a very open, very vulnerable book… sharing the ups and downs… the lessons learned… my shooting & editing secrets… and of course I unintentionally threw some sappy tears in there too, but we’ll just call that a bonus.
Empowering and equipping other photographers to chase after purpose, set strong foundations, and build a business based in service is something I’ll never stop being passionate about. My prayer is that those fourteen attendees would look back at the workshop day as a turning point and game changer for their business and THAT is why I pour my whole entire heart into it. I never take it lightly.
Today I’m sharing a recap of this beautiful day I never want to forget! My friend Preston was there to take behind the scenes all day and capture all my flattering faces when trying to make very important points. You’re welcome in advance.
Zack & Mary were out models AKA the kindest (most beautiful) humans who everyone was obsessed with.
And Kristen <3 My outrageously talented Hair & Makeup Artist go-to (HIRE HER) and dear friend/mentor/encourager. She’s donated her time and talents for all three workshops and I just feel so blessed for all that she is and does. I’m not kidding when I say the first sentence out of my mouth was “welcome to heaven.” Accurate. I always have way too much fun sharing my entire shooting and posing process with the attendees… it’s where the magic happens! Thanks Demi for the photo on the right! FRAMER <3 After the styled shoot, we headed back to my house for a hearty Olive Garden dinner with bountiful breadsticks, a walk through my culling & editing process, as well as more teaching and late night learning before we said sad goodbyes at 10 PM that night…I miss this day and scrolling through the #carolineloganworkshop hashtag just gets me every time…
BUT SILVER LINING. There’s one more 2017 workshop coming October 23rd!!! AH! If you’re interested in joining, email me for more details at firstname.lastname@example.org… I want to make sure your seat is saved!
Thank you to the dream team of vendors who donated their time and talents in order to spoil the attendees with a styled shoot that took my breath away! : Forte Florals | Hingework | Treasured Events | Unfading Beauty | Sweet Caroline Styles | The Black Tux | The Baker’s Table | Persnickety Invitation Studio | Party Crush Studio
