Meeting The Love Of Your Life

When I was a kid I would line up stuffed animals and pretend they were my class.  The 6-year old me would teach them about math and kittens.

A couple years ago I hung a goal up on the wall of my office: “To Teach, Inspire, and Give.”  Teaching was something that I was hesitant to label as a goal because I was afraid it would come true.  How nerve racking it must be to be a teacher!

My first photography workshop was on Sunday.

It feels weird.  Like meeting the love of your life.  You have all these ideas in your head and aren’t sure what it’s is going to be like, but when it arrives, you’re like “Oh, theeeere you are.”  It’s a combination of excitement, disbelief, and confident sureness. It felt natural and easy.

The day consisted of doing an engagement shoot, and a lecture series on how to build a successful photography business that you love.

Thanks to Lydia, Nicole, Cindy, Michelle, Emily, Taylor, Alex, Sunny, Jessica, Carla, & Nathanael for coming!  It was a pleasure to lose my workshop virginity to all of you.  😛

Stay tuned for information on future workshops!

    Wow CC! The workshop was so fun and informative! You’re totally inspiring, giving and taught me so much. It was great to see that we could have a beautiful shoot in an alleyway! Who knew?! The light was perfect in the courtyard. Great seeing everyone in your shots above. I’m really happy I got to be there! Thanks Christine for your generosity.
