WHO ARE GOLDEN GIRLS?

 

MEET SUMMER:

HI GUYS! I AM A NOT-SO NATURAL REDHEAD, AND A MOMMA TO TWO BEAUTIFUL GIRLS. I PICKED UP A CAMERA WHEN MY YOUNGEST DAUGHTER WAS BORN AND I WAS HOOKED. I HAVE BEEN A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER SINCE 2008, SPECIALIZING IN CHILDREN AND FAMILIES. IN 2011, I BEGAN SHOOTING WEDDINGS AND I ABSOLUTELY ADORE IT. WHEN I STARTED OUT, I WOULD SPEND HOURS ONLINE EVERY DAY, READING AND LEARNING AS MUCH AS I COULD. BUT, IT NEVER "CLICKED" UNTIL I ATTENDED MY FIRST WORKSHOP! THE ENERGY OF BEING IN THE SAME ROOM AS LIKE MINDED PE0PLE WAS UNLIKE ANYTHING I HAD EVER FELT BEFORE. BEING A VISUAL LEARNER, I HAD SO MANY "AHA" MOMENTS THAT DAY. I  AM A SELF-PROCLAIMED WORKSHOP JUNKIE NOW. I HAVE TAKEN WORKSHOPS WITH SOME OF THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHERS IN THE WORLD. WHEN I HOSTED MY FIRST WORKSHOP, AND IT WAS A SUCCESS, I COULDN'T WAIT TO DO MORE.

MEET VALERIE:

HELLO! I AM A MARRIED, TATTOOED, PUNK ROCK LOVING MOM TO TWO CRAZY LITTLE LADIES. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A STORYTELLER, BUT IT WASN'T UNTIL AFTER I QUIT MY JOB IN JOURNALISM AND BECAME A MOMMY, THAT I REALIZED I COULD TELL AWESOME STORIES WITH MY CAMERA. I PURCHASED MY FIRST FANCY-PANTS CAMERA ABOUT THREE YEARS AGO, AND I HAVEN'T PUT IT DOWN SINCE. I LOVE TAKING PICTURES OF FAMILIES AND CHILDREN, BUT MY HEART REALLY SKIPS A BEAT WHEN I CAPTURE THOSE PRECIOUS CANDID MOMENTS THAT TELL THE STORY SO WELL. I DIDN'T REALIZE HOW MUCH FUN IT WAS TO CONNECT WITH OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS, UNTIL I MET SUMMER A FEW YEARS AGO. SHE INTRODUCED ME TO THE EXCITING WORLD OF WORKSHOPS AND I HAVE BEEN HOOKED EVER SINCE. MY SKILLS HAVE GROWN LIKE MAD, AND I HAVE MADE SO MANY AWESOME NEW FRIENDS... PEOPLE THAT GO CRAZY OVER THAT GOLDEN LIGHT, JUST LIKE ME!

It is more important to click with people, than to click the shutter.
