I Get So Emotional…

I Heart Faces Photography Workshop

You know that old song by Whitney Houston? “I get so emotional baby, every time I think of you… u… u!” We’ll that’s how I’m feeling about a little blog my friend and I started a few years ago. I Heart Faces. It’s turned into an amazing community with thousands of talented women who love photography. It’s not only a blog, but a place where women create lasting friendships, get support and best of all inspire each other to achieve their dreams.

I don’t know… maybe I’m emotional because I’m surviving on just a few hours sleep. Yes, I’d say that has a little something to do with it! ha! I’ve been crazily working on all of our events, collaborating with vendors, models, designing a new website, planning our summer tour, along with art directing and styling FOUR photo shoots for our workshop this weekend in San Antonio. Eek!

After being with a fun group of women and teaching them what we know, it’s all worth it in the end. I’m happy to loose some sleep to be helping other women gain the confidence they need to reach their goals for success.

I’d love to show you what I’m working on for our photo shoots this weekend in San Antonio, but I want it to be a surprise!

Just for fun, here is what I did for our last event. This is the inspiration board I made by piecing items and colors I liked together in Photoshop:

I’ll be doing a lot of this over the weekend…. (that’s me in red).

I never have many pretty images of models to show, because I’m busy art directing (bossing people around! ha) and taking video and photos of other people taking photos. It’s crazy while it’s all happening, but such a rush and super fun!

Thanks so much for reading along on my emotional journey today!

I am very passionate about what I do and hope it rubs off on some of you who might be thinking of trying something new. When I started I Heart Faces, I was pretty clueless about blogging and especially camera settings!! Now that seems like ages ago and an entire new chapter begins with teaching and helping women at our events across the U.S.

Come check out the new site we just launched and see where we’re headed next. Maybe you can join us!!

Photo credits: All other people besides me! Yes, I’m lacking sleep and memory for that matter. See the water mark on the photos for credit. They are all awesome photographers! Oh, Bridget made those amazing cookies. I sketched them and she went to town. My friend Christel made the adorable outfits.

**Thanks to my husband and mom for helping take care of my kids and making sure they are fed and bathed. I get to hang out with my friends and amazing photographers this week… that’s priceless!
