was all i needed to recoup from the awesomeness that was this weekend.
how can i describe the GoPro?
i have been trying to think of ways to sum it up.
when i got to talk out loud to craig about it last night i almost cried....because my heart is full.
for me....it was the absolute perfect environment to learn.
i never have done well in a classroom setting.
i have a very short attention span when put in a setting that is restricting.
so learning like this about something i love was dreamy.
it seemed out of body.
i didn't think that this kind of learning was an option for me.....and that is what made me teary.
having freedom to walk around, talk, interact and say "wait go back...i missed that."
this is a photo that i like to call "PAY BACK".
crystal b walked in friday morning and i was shocked!
it was such a SUPER surprise for my email friend to walk in the door!
the entire oceanside of the beach house was floor to ceiling windows.
some people get to live like that everyday??
everything was high end...very fancy....ooh la la.
check out the creepy 7 foot portly chef statue in the background.....
i did double takes ALL the time thinking someone was standing there.
he was a source of entertainment for everyone.
this is the view sitting at the kitchen table.
"did you see that sky today? TALK about blue." (name that movie)
we had a family shoot to watch and learn.
and then take our own shots.
these are a couple of mine but i didn't edit much like we were taught because i need lots more practice.
the kids were troopers!
then we practiced on each other.
(i am missing two people in the group....sorry girls)
cam was the token dude.
he was good at tolerating the ladies...very fun to be around. HI CAM!!
and tyler is hillarious.
i laughed more this weekend than i have in quite awhile (except for when i was in da club in my cardi)
"being tall is pretty much the most amazing thing you can be"
we had a time learning how to shoot in studio light.
then we had a bridal shoot on THE bridge.
if you know wendy and tyler's work then you know the bridge. :)
kansas doesn't have views like this in too many places....or anywhere.
today is wendy's birthday!
happy birthday to the coolest red head i know.
i have so many things to remember and review.
i left with a really happy heart and completely encouraged to continue to find MY purpose in photography.
to make my business be what i want it to be.
to be awesome like wendy and tyler.
but that is not possible.
they are out my league in that department.
do you realize they are leaving for the next 9 months to travel & photograph and teach all over the world?!
as a family.
in every way.
thanks for THE BEST weekend wendy and tyler.
i had really high expectations and you far exceeded them.
i am full and overflowing with joy.
