Photography 101 Recap!

We recently hosted our most popular workshop, Photography 101, and it was a blast! We had a great group of attendees and we were totally blown away by how quickly they all soaked up the information!

This workshop was designed to get people to take their cameras off of AUTO mode and get them shooting (confidently!) in full MANUAL mode. A good portion of our workshops is instructional information but we never want our students to feel lost or fall behind, so we always keep everything hands-on and we make sure to supply lots of pretty things for everyone to practice photographing! This time around, we had a beautiful model and a ton of fun little vignettes set up around our studio!

Thanks to everyone who attended this workshop! You guys did such an awesome job! Here are a few of our attendees' favorite images:

Also, huge thanks to our sponsors: Shutter Bag, Clickin' Moms and Artifact Uprising and our model Shannon Swanson.

If you're interested in attending a future workshop, please check out our upcoming events page! We have some really, really, REALLY cool stuff coming up very soon! If you have questions about becoming one of our event sponsors, please send an email to!

Hello, lovelies! If you haven't had the opportunity to attend one of our Golden Girls workshops yet and you're wondering what they're all about, then get ready! We have some exciting stuff to share with you!

Our talented friend Jay (of Jay Williams Photography) is an awesome photographer and videographer and he put together some super cool videos of our recent Photography 101 Workshop! (Check out the recap here!)

The first video will give you a pretty good idea of what you can expect from a typical Golden Girls Workshop: giveaways, food, fun! (Oh, and, of course, a ton of pretty things to photograph!)

And we also have this cool compilation of reviews from our awesome attendees! We can tell you how rad our workshops are all the time... but that doesn't really count, does it? ;) Instead, take our attendees' word for it!

Huge thanks to Jay and all of our fabulous attendees! We hope to see you at one of our next events! <3
