Thank you so very much for teaching/developing this workshop...

 

I have taken quite a few over the years just to get a bit of motivation when I'm feeling "photography blah" but YOU have changed the playing field with this one! I cannot even express how much I have enjoyed watching your videos and seeing how fabulously "real" you are - all while living what you're teaching. Thank you for that. It's rare. Very rare. And so dang refreshing.

 

Wishing you the best of the best in your photography world, mama! You rocked my world these last weeks... thank you again.

 

xoxo!

I will miss you and the others that have participated. ~ Alicia

Hi Raye & Mindy,

I've been meaning to write you a "thank you" email since attending your "speak-n-shoot" in North Carolina last month. Life has been crazy busy for me and I FINALLY had a chance yesterday to sit down, go through the workbook & notes and absorb all that I learned. I was so incredibly inspired after watching you two shoot in NC!!! I can't wait for this Seattle weather to dry out and be able to get outside for family sessions! I learned SO SO SO much and I want to personally thank you!! I am 100% completely HAPPY that I went to your workshop and I wanted you girls to know that!!! Please know that you've inspired me SO much and after watching both your work for the past 2-3 years...it was amazing to meet you!

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you for being an open book & sharing your family session techniques...I am truly grateful!!!! :) ~ Jess

 

 

Such fabulous women!!! Thanks for seeing this up, Lina and Julie! I learned a ton, Mindy & Raye. Thank you for an amazing weekend!!!

 

 

I just wanted to thank you again for the amazing workshop. I also wanted to share part of an email from an E session that I did the week after I got back.

 

"Fabiana,

 

Thank you so much for being absolutely wonderful to work with! I LOVE our photos, you are amazing. We are still picking between two pictures right now, so I will get back to you with the invite photo very shortly. Again, thank you so much. I couldn't be more thrilled right now. Kimberlee"

 

And THAT, my dear, it thanks to you and Mindy. You gave me permission to be fun, and to break the "rules". I just got the list of the photos that they have chosen and 3/4 of them are interaction shots where they are laughing and having fun. So MWAH. ~ Fabiana
