My heart is full looking back through these photos. Branches and Light 2013 was incredible, and I'm so blessed to have had this opportunity. Caroline and I began talking about this dream 4 years ago, and it's incredible to see how it has unfolded. With dozens of videochats, brainstorming, writing, researching, reading, learning, and simply walking through owning our own businesses, we confidently put together what I believe is one of the best photography workshops out there.
Caroline talking about conquering fear is one of the most inspiring, challenging messages given during the day. One of my favorite quotes from her talk:
"Set your course by the stars, not by the light of every passing ship."
I love the balance of sharing our hearts and actual shooting. Our styled shoot was incredible, and it was so sweet to see the beautiful creative minds at work all around us.
Miss Stefanie Miles did an amazing job sharing about what is most important in business : the people we are surrounded with. What a genuine and gifted business woman! We were so grateful to have her as our guest speaker. My favorite quote she shared:
"People will forget what you said
People will forget what you did
But people will never forget
how you made them feel."
To every beautiful photographer who attended, thank you. My heart overflows with gratitude every time I think of you. I'll never forget closing the day with thoughts from my heart, seeing several of you with tears in your eyes, as I fought tears of my own. What I will never, ever forget this day or that moment. I cannot wait to see your beautiful lives and business continue to grow!
