That's how I knew that her Hometown Workshop would be absolutely incredible
and I was absolutely right!
From delicious breakfasts, catered lunches and dinners
to the nightly Treat Fairy.
Karen didn't miss a single detail.
because Karen attracts women with deep souls and huge hearts to her online photography classes.
These women came from all over the world...including Tammy from Canada
and Helena all the way from Rome, Italy.
Some of us had the same name...well just Lisa and I did!
My friend Beth is a beautiful pregnant Mamma...we helped her come up with some great baby names.
And one of us had gorgeous long red hair just like my girl, of course I was instantly drawn to Nicole and her charm and engaging personality.
Then there was this beautiful woman who lost her precious son just a few months ago. Janette and I had so much to talk about. It makes perfect sense to me that somehow we slid easily into a friendship. Members of our club are like that.
and played games the entire time...
Personally I challenged myself to push my photography to the next level. I was becoming too predictable and stagnant. Which meant that I took plenty of bad photographs the first few days, but it all eventually seemed to come together.
writing on her blog display devotion to family and passion for living a definitive life. Generously, Karen shared her children with us.
And they were sweet enough to play along while we learned candid shooting.
Annie so adorable, I think we all wanted to slip her in our pocket and take her home.
And this photo taken by Michelle...captured just as Courtney looked toward heaven, waved, and said "Hi Jocie!" Yes...she did!
All too quickly our workshop came to an end,
Not one of us took the exquisite four days in Hannah house for granted. We soaked up every luxurious detail Karen had outlined.
I truly believe each of us left changed...and changed for the better. Our photography, our friendships, our love, our passion, all of it amped to the next level. Thank you Karen from each of us for the sleepover of a lifetime!
