I wanted to steal this dog!!

Hey ya'll!

So I recently traveled to my hometown of Richmond, Virginia and I finally got to be apart of THE Workshop Experience with Katelyn James!

Let me first start of by telling you that I have wanted to take the workshop experience with Katelyn James since high school! So this christmas my parents surprised me and made it all possible! Literally one of the best christmas gifts, and I am beyond thankful. 

I spent two days with Katelyn, her husband Michael, and 11 other photographers. We got to shoot along side of Katelyn, and learn everything she knows about the world of photography and the business side of it. They opened their beautiful home to us, and might I add that their house looks like it's something straight off of Pinterest! Katelyn is so talented! One of my favorite parts was that we got to share meals together and just talk about life and photography. They also provided some yummy meals to say the least. Another favorite part was just being around their adorable dog! Their dog is beyond cute, and I couldn't stop staring at their bichpoo named Bokeh. If anyone knows of Katelyn James they know that Bokeh is practically famous and his hashtag on Instagram (#bokehthebichpoo) has almost 1,000 pictures. Anywho, my two days with Katelyn James was everything I hoped and more and I cannot wait to put to use everything Katelyn taught me, and build and grow my photography business the best I can. 

Here are some pictures from the workshop and the styled shoot we did! Enjoy!

The above pictures are two I took during the styled shoot! 

Thanks for reading! Oh and don't worry Katelyn, I won't steal Bokeh :)
