I'm a lucky girl. I know it, and I'm very appreciative of it. A couple years ago, I attended a Pinkletoes Workshop in Austin. At the time, I was only practicing photography. I didn't have the guts to start a business of my own. I left that workshop totally in awe of the talent that the other attendees (and, of course, the host) possessed,and feeling like I had gotten the push I needed to make the leap. In the time following the workshop, Michele has created a community of photographers that are supportive and fun. We can ask questions and brainstorm ideas. It's an amazing group of woman all trying to help others do the best they possibly can. This is awesome (obviously), but even better is the fact that we get to meet up once a year for reunions!
This year's trip was to Charleston, South Carolina. It's a beautiful city (I mean, the moss in the trees alone takes the beauty up several notches). The air was heavy with the scent of the jasmine that seems to grow on any item that was stationary long enough. I was nervous to meet this group of women. I didn't know a soul, other than Michele. Those nerves quickly disappeared as we all got together and bonded over all the things we had in common...family, loss, struggles, love of photography, business and t-rex jokes. We woke at sunrise to capture a sunrise at Folly Beach. We went on a food tour, carriage tour, ate at delicious restaurants, toured the plantation where The Notebook was filmed and wandered Rainbow Row. Somehow, we even found time to have a maternity session for a family we randomly met not the beach!
Attending Michele's workshop in Austin, was one of the best things that I ever did for my business. Attending this reunion is pretty high up there as well, not only did I have an opportunity to brainstorm and discuss things with this group of incredibly talented ladies, but I left with wonderful new friends.
