Bring your game face...the competition is on!!
A friendly competition that is!
Attendees will have a chance to bring their own designs to life!!
During our Styled Shoot Challenge, the teams will be given an opportunity to win their choices from our decor store, fashion mall, and secret cupboard of items.
This is the most hands on fun we have ever offered!
Watch for details of colour palette for the team challenge!
Sounds like lots of fun right...join us for this and so much more awesome at
thank you friends
What I came to learn, was the relationships with those vendors would bring so much more to me and my business then the images from a pretty day!
I'm still working along side most of these vendors today...on many projects, from real weddings & events, to styled shoots, and personal celebrations together!
I'll admit, that was a mistake.
Don't get me wrong...each and every shoot brought a lot of experience my way!
I started planning & designing my own shoots.
This allowed me to build relationships with vendors. To meet them in person and learn what they want to get from a styled shoot too.
I learned even more from this process!
From sharing on social media; proper tagging of all the vendors & the etiquette of building your team...there was so much that vendors weren't doing to boost their own community & businesses.
My husband jokingly suggested I host a workshop where I could help other vendors to use styled shoots to help grow their community and businesses too.
Hours later...the first baby workshop in this series was born!
(I have to mention that my son, Hunter, named the Workshop...no really...he did...and he wants me to mention it! haha)
Past Workshops Tab...
11 workshops ago!!!!
Can you believe that!
We have produced eleven workshops in the series!!
With multiple people asking when the next one
was...we made a plan...on the spot!
We learned a lot the first time around.
We learn a lot from each session we host...there is always room for growth!
We have grown into portfolio builders; we have brought flat lays to the people; we have turned an over night stay into a full blown retreat week; we have dined under the trees & had a holiday dinner together as a team; we have carried cast iron tubs into an old church & stepped into a shower with our models; we have canoed a small lake in Canmore; and taken attendees to the top of a glacier via helicopter for an exciting first look (for real!) and we even had a real elopement...and we are adding more to the series of sessions as we grow again!
These workshops mean so much to me. If you have ever seen me at the end of the day trying to thank everyone, then you have seen the tears of
gratitude and appreciation.
The support of you, our attendees & the vendors who put their trust in me...this is what inspires me.
So, I bring you my experience.
My time. My research. My education of styled shoots.
Real life. Real time.
I believe in building a community where we can support one another, help each other grow our businesses, and styled shoots can be a catalyst for that.
So, I invite you to join us at one of our sessions.
thank you friends
