Last week was incredibly busy because my sweet baby boy Charlie turned 3! Every year I take the boys out around their birthday for a photo shoot…and every year it is generally painful. They want nothing to do with the camera, want to climb all over me or dance around like monkeys. But not this year.
About 9 months ago I signed up for one of Meg Bitton‘s workshops called Souls.Imagined.YOU. When I contacted Meg last June to ask about her workshops of course almost everything was sold out for 2013. I knew that I needed someone to come in and help me grow to the next level in my photography work. I was pretty sure Meg was the person that could do that (every single workshop of hers gets rave reviews!) and so I signed up for this before it was even listed on her calendar. Now, a week into it I can honestly say that she IS the person and it was WELL worth the wait. <3
The very first day Meg was able to pinpoint what I was doing well and what areas needed focus. She was spot on in her observations. Light bulbs started going off! It has been EXACTLY what I needed to breathe life back into my photography. We still have another week to go but I am so grateful to have gotten the direction she has given so far…seeing things from a new perspective is just incredibly helpful and refreshing.
Last weekend my assignment was to do my annual birthday photo shoot with Charlie, using everything I learned about myself and my work. It was the first time EVER we left a photo shoot smiling. Charlie even said to me when we got in the car, “Mommy, I had a real good time.” Heart.melted. Here are some of my favorite new photos of my baby boy for his 3rd birthday. I can not WAIT to thank Meg in person when she and Mary come to Lake Wylie for their workshop this June <3 Enjoy!
