Our Savvy Weekend

Savvy Accomodations 2
Savvy Accomodations 1
I am just getting my feet back underneath my from our fun and fabulous weekend in Alys Beach at the Savvy Workshop!
It was a jam packed trip filled with lots of valuable information and I left feeling completely inspired and rejuvenated.
The accommodations were top notch.... I felt like we were living in the lap of luxury for a few days.
Marsha spoiled all of us and left no detail unturned.
She escorted us to our rooms upon arrival and our swag bags were on our beds waiting for us.
Lots of great goodies in there :)

The speakers all knocked it out of the park with their presentations.
It was wonderful to hear how they approach the marketplace and they all shared what led them to be the successful photographers they are today. Each one of them shared the do's and don'ts they learned along the way.

We had two photoshoots scheduled with some super gorgeous models that live in the area.
Unfortunately the weather was not as cooperative as we would have liked and we never made it to the beach for photos.
All of our shoots were done in our houses or on the patios......
and a few times we dodged the raindrops and made it out to the courtyards to snap a couple.

In addition to all of that, our talented speakers, took head shots of all of us so we could use them for our websites.
I will share those when we get them. I was so excited, not only did I get head shots taken, everyone there knew the special bond and friendship that Marla and I share, so they took beautiful photos of the two of us together as well. I am so glad that Marla came along with me.... the trip would not have been the same without her.

Our time together seemed to fly by and before we knew it, we were all saying goodbye.
I hated to leave Marla and my new friends, but hope that one day we will all get to meet again.
There is already rumor of a Savvy Retreat for all attendees..... hope that is more than a rumor:)

When I arrived home, I had to jump right back into work mode which left me little time to edit or play with the photos.
Last night I edited just a few of these little cutie pies.
There are many more to come...

Thank you Marsha and the rest of the Savvy team for a wonderful weekend full of photography talk and friendship.
I am so thankful I was part of it. I also want to give a special shout out to my sister in law, Mary Pat who came to town and stayed with my husband and the kids to help him hold down the fort while I was gone. It definitely gave me peace of mind to know that there was an extra set of hands at home to help out. Everyone was sad to see you leave yesterday.... we hope you will come back to visit again soon.

Have a great weekend everyone!

the long road

Yes, all of the portraits were taken with natural light. We set our models up in doorways or near windows.

Wonderful write up on the trip Lisa! I was starting to write up the trip on my blog but how do I communicate and explain the amazing friendships that we all made in such a short period of time?

Love your work and I look forward to following your blog!

This is my first time linking up, so thank you for hosting! A weekend away to focus on photography sounds amazing. Living in Thailand, there aren't a whole lot of options for classes held in English sadly. Beautiful shots by the way! :)
