The 2020 Treat Yo Self workshop was in January 2020, which is crazy because we had NO idea what was going to happen in those next couple of months, so I'm super grateful we scheduled it when we did. This was the second Treat Yo Self workshop, which I hosted with my bestie, Dani Brewer. We had 7-8 girls come from 4 different states, from Georgia to Arkansas to Louisiana to right here in Tennessee! One girl even flew out to be a part of the workshop. It was truly an honor that these women were willing to travel so far to come and learn from us!

It was 2 nights long/3 days long, so we started on Friday night and hosted a big dinner (Mexican of course) for everyone and we just introduced ourselves and got to know one another. We jumped right into teaching a few lessons that night and we talked about basics of photography. We met the next morning for breakfast and I was so grateful for Young Life in Memphis for letting us use their space the whole weekend to host.

We taught all day until about midday when we went to Orion Hill for the styled shoot, which was so fun! We had two shoots- an "engagement" and a "bride and groom" When we pulled up I was so excited because we got the cutest VW bus (@tincanphotos) and my friend Polly did florals with her previous company borrow+bloom -and it was just so cool to see my vision for that come to life.

We started off with Rebecca and Lue, and they are the cutest couple ever. My friend Shelby styled Rebecca from her shop Shelby Jewel, and Kimberly Yasmine did the makeup- and she was absolutely stunning! They were the sweetest couple & SO easy to work with.

After the engagement shoot, we moved to the bride and groom setup and the cutest married couple Ashley and Trey modeled. Dani shot their wedding so it was so fun having them there! They were so fun to work with!

On Sunday, we had breakfast and taught some more. Then we did a family session, which Dani taught since her main focus is on family photography and she killed it! Our friend Jenna modeled with her family and it was beautiful! We finished it all up by going to Central BBQ and then we all went our separate ways!

I absolutely love teaching, and I can't wait to dream up some things like this in Charleston. This workshop was so fun & I absolutely loved being able to teach alongside my bestie! SO thankful for Treat Yo' Self Workshop!! :)
