THE NARRATIVE PHILOSOPHY
"A good story can take you on a fantastic jouney."
- Walt Disney
A workshop tailored to surpass 'picture-taking' and start story shooting, because I want to create a culture of photographers who worry less about their legitimacy and focus more on legacy.
Legitimacy is what things mean to you, but
Legacy is what it means to everybody else.
As artists, we must understand the simple fact that we create for ourselves. It is our vision and competency when it comes to our strength in visual language, to influence what we feel when we look at the final image. The viewer will journey through their own emotions as their eyes 'read' the photo composed. But there is a greater journey to be discovered, and that is the skill of storytelling. It is by far the greater adventure, the greater reward, and steps into the realm of legacy.
This workshop is divided into three set subjects, with the connecting theme being the word 'story.' These three shoots are designed for me, but I am sharing them with a very small and intimate group, to share the beauty, the joy, and the reward of showing a narrative. When you connect the head and the heart, amazing things happen, and this is a gift we have as a visual artists to deliver to those who commission us and more importantly... the viewer.
LIMITED TO ONLY FIVE SPACES
Day One: LIFESTYLE
The first day's location is in the Cotswold, the quintessential English country life, with two of our favourite models in a variety of settings for the day at one of my favourite venues. We will spend the day with three different set-ups, to create a variety of fun lifestyle images, all while focusing on giving you a story.
Day Two: LUXURY
We have booked an exclusive venue, in the heart of the Cotswolds, labelled "the most beautiful village in England."
I chose this venue because I fell in love with this venue 8 years ago at a wedding, which will set the stage for this luxury-styled wedding shoot. We will use the same couple across three days, helping you build a relationship with them while creating a story of the day for you to focus on the narrative.
Day Three: ROMANCE
For our final day, we will take our couple out of the countryside into a romantic city, where we will focus on curating romantic images as we explore the sights around us. Think coffee shops, intimacy, picnics on the grass, and candles in a beautiful room for dinner.

My passion in life is people. It goes beyond beauty, but starts there. I actively listen to your personal stories and expectations and turn them into a realistic reality. My hope for each client I help is that they love themselves on the inside and it shows on the outside through fashion, makeup, and hair. I focus on bringing out the best version of themselves, creating a beautiful glam story that is unique to each individual.
I'm passionate about people and helping them bring out their best selves through makeup, hair, and fashion. I draw inspiration from my travels around the world and love connecting with people from different cultures. Vintage designer stores, cobblestone streets, artisan couture, and even a simple stroll through a French park on a fall day inspire my take on beauty.
