{Frame This} Photography Weekend

Well, hello there!! 
It sure has been awhile since I've done a blog post! I decided to take the summer off and I'm so glad I did. I actually don't know if I would have had time to blog anyway. Our summer was wonderful ... loaded with lots of family visits, a trip to our beloved Wrightsville Beach, a trip to Hampton Bays, NY, a few day trips, swimming, sports camps and just a lot of fun. Why does summer have to go so fast? Hopefully sometime in the future I will be able to share some of our summer adventures. 

But, I couldn't wait to start sharing some of the photos I took at a recent workshop I attended, the {Frame This} Photography Workshop hosted by Lisa of longroadtochina. About 1-1/2 weeks ago, I made the trip to Bethlehem, PA. This was not a far drive for me, but quite a trip for most of the other ladies that attended. They traveled from as far as Utah, North Carolina, Chicago, Arizona, Kansas, Michigan, etc. The weekend was just fabulous. Lisa thought of everything, right down to the cutest little detail. We had workshop time where she spoke about the business side of photography, a review of some photography techniques and her editing process. We spent all of Saturday out shooting. Lisa had a total of 9 models lined up for us to photograph throughout the day including some tween girls, a teenage couple, a teenage girl with a pink Schwinn bike, a gorgeous middle-aged model and sweet little triplets. The models did amazing with all 17 of us holding our cameras in their faces!! We wrapped up Friday and Saturday with dinner at two fabulous local restaurants and capped off each of the nights in Lisa's suite. Oh the stories and laughs we shared!!! 

I wish I could take time to tell you about each and every one of the ladies in our group. I am just so happy to have had this experience. I had gotten to know some of them through blogging and it was awesome to finally meet them in person. I loved all of them. We had so much fun together, we bonded quickly and I have come home with so many memories, fun stories and new friendships. 

I learned so much from Lisa over the course of the weekend! I couldn't wait to get home to upload my photos and start editing!! Here is just a small sampling of the photos I took. I took sooo many, I will probably blog them in three separate posts, ending with the triplet's shoot in the apple orchard.
