Ahhh, it feels so surreal and wonderful and amazing to finally share this good news! I have been interested in hosting a workshop for a long time, but haven’t taken the leap. Then my good friend Ashley (from Ashley Jackson Studios) and I were talking about how we were craving authentic, empowering and practical boudoir education. And we decided we wanted to create it ourselves!
We want to hold space within the industry to explore the warm & gentle side of boudoir. To teach posing & lighting & editing. To help share our experiences with other boudoir photographers so the industry continues to grow, and alllll of our clients benefit.
Being a boudoir photographer is such an honor…being able to impact our client’s lives outside of the studio?? That is so cool. This workshop is all about expanding that experience to better serve the people who are in front of our cameras.
So what are we all about?
Here’s what Ashley wrote to describe it:
WE CELEBRATE THE DELICATE POSE, LIGHT FALLING OVER THEIR SKIN, EMOTION AND CONFIDENCE IN THE EXPRESSION, AND ALLLL THE BODY LANGUAGE. BUT THE BEST PART FOR OUR CLIENTS? THE REAL IMPACT IS EVEN DEEPER THAN THESE BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS.
HOW ARE WE CREATING A SPACE TO CAPTURE TENDER, NATURAL AND EXPRESSIVE IMAGES?
HOW ARE WE CONNECTING WITH CLIENTS AND WHY ARE THEY REFERRING THEIR LOVED ONES, BEFORE EVEN SEEING THEIR FINAL IMAGES?!
HOW ARE WE EDITING THESE IMAGES?
HOW DOES MARY USE THAT DANG STROBE AND SNOOT TO CREATE ARTIFICIAL WINDOW LIGHT?!
The first FEYRE workshop is going to be May 4-5th, 2023 in downtown Minneapolis. We have rented the most gorgeous studio, and we can’t wait to host everyone!! (Seriously SO excited).
We launched last week, and are allllmost sold out. Which is crazy and amazing.
Here is all the info if you are interested in hearing more of the logistical details (we are details girlies!)
As a Minneapolis Boudoir Photographer, I seriously can’t wait to have everyone fly in to this amazing city and learn together. We are working hard on our materials, gathering the attendee’s images for some live editing demonstrations, and putting the final touches on our 3 styled shoots. I am getting so so excited. May 4th can’t get here fast enough!!!
