Here are pictures from the last shoot we did at Homewood.  We had Shyla and Eric back again as well as Jill.  It was a fun indoor shoot where we got to play around with lighting a little bit.  It was a good way for us to finish off the week.  Of course the next day Amber Holritz shared her philosophy and approach to lifestyle photography, which was amazing and inspiring.  Thank you so much to the crew at Corey McNabb Photography and Amber Holritz (along with the rest of the Holritz clan for letting us have their wife and mom for the week.  It was a great week filled with wonderful tips, ideas, reality checks, fun, food, and fellowship!  homewood-31.jpg homewood-8.jpg homewood-9.jpg homewood-12.jpg homewood-14.jpg homewood-15.jpg homewood-19.jpg homewood-20.jpg homewood-22.jpg Eric set this picture up, but I had to jump in on the action ’cause it was just too cool.homewood-26.jpg 

Still out of order

I’m blogging things SO out of order.  I’M SORRY!  I was reminded by my neighbor Jessi yesterday that I had been slow and that she’s had to stalk other people’s blogs.  I have some images ready to post from Rockstar and I’m still trying to get all of my faves edited from Love Affair.  I also have some pictures from a project that the oh so talented Malinda Sharp designed.  I have those edited, but not ready to blog.  So in the meantime, here are some more pictures from Rockstar.  These are from the day that we shot at The Biltmore.  I have wanted to shoot at Biltmore for forever.  I was a little bummed when we woke up and there was snow, and it was freezing because it was going to make for a nasty shooting day.  And I do mean it was F R E E Z I N G!!!!!!  No lie, my car registered 24 degrees.  I had to remind myself that I trust that God will put in the right place and the right time to catch the image that I’m meant to have.  I just have to be aware of what that image is going to be.  It turned out to be the COOLEST day though.  We had sunny skies and HUGE puffy clouds that were spitting snow.  So even though it was full sun, there was still snow falling.  However, I say cool, but that was for the photographers.  The poor models had long johns under their dresses and suits.  All except Bree who had a slit that shot all the way up her leg.  She looked hot though.  This is my friend Lindsey Bamber getting her makeup done.  You may recognize them from an earlier blog post of mine.  They are my photographer friends, and travel buddies, from Dayton, TN.   rsb-2.jpg This is Jill Schwarzkopf.  She’s a photographer friend of Corey’s from Ashevillersb-7.jpg  John and Lindsey again.  I didn’t get any of just John, which I’m bummed about.rsb-8.jpg This is Bree.  Doesn’t she have AMAZING legs!  This dress was perfect for her.rsb-10.jpg rsb-11.jpg Lindseyrsb-12.jpg The Purple Iris provided us with some AMAZING bouquets.rsb-13.jpg Of Course Shyla and Eric.rsb-16.jpg rsb-21.jpg rsb-22.jpg rsb-23.jpg  rsb-27.jpg A big, no, H U G E thanks to the lovely people at Biltmore for allowing us to shoot on the amazing grounds and come inside to warm up.  Also to our models for sticking with us through the arctic weather….it was TOTALLY worth it!

We’re about to finish our 2nd day at the Corey McNabb Rockstar Photography Workshop and head out for a super cool night shoot.  He’s posted some pictures on his blog of our group.  I want to say a BIG THANKS to Andrew and Rachel from LaCour and Shoot Q.  Also Adam Linke from The Decisive Moment and Pictage.  Oh, and Larry Crandall from Crandall Photography and White Glove.  If I can get my act together, I’ll try to get some images from tonight posted soon.

Look at me!

Hey Everyone! I had a chance and I wanted to say hey and tell you that I’m having a great time at the Love Affair workshop.  They’ve posted the pictures from our first critique this morning HERE.  Here are 3 of my favorites from our shoot yesterday.  Our internet access is patchy, so I’ll update as much as I can. la-1.jpg la-2.jpg la-3.jpg
