An OBX Dream with New Friends, Enchanting Smiles & Donuts!

Eeeeee!! Let me just go ahead and let the squeal out from the get go… I am SO thrilled to be able to share this experience with you all! 

A few weeks ago I attended a Make It Click – Workshop & Retreat weekend in the Outer Banks and let me just say… the whole experience was pure perfection!!

Katie & Kelly really now how to pull together magic! Pure and simple majestic bliss!

From the speakers that we had the first night… The absolutely delightful, amazingly talented, and cutest pregnant photog ever Amanda Hedgepath  who filled my mind with so many ideas and gave me a fresh look on business. Then after an awesome dinner we internet video chatted.. you know that thingy sophisticated people do 😉 – with the awesome Anna Bartell from The Snap Society  and her sweet husband about all things life and business. Such great insight!

The next day was filled with all things photography, a family session in the morning, with an amazing local photographer’s family, to Kelly’s stylized shoot with the sweetest gal, to Katie’s drop dead gorgeous themed senior session… just wait until you see it! I could literally tell y’all about that all day, but i’ll just sum it up. IT ROCKED. 

And I have pictures to prove it. Lots of them.. sorry I just couldn’t narrow this thing down any further!

The last day we were treated to the sweetest couple’s session. Seriously.. they couldn’t be cuter! (Oh and they are kick butt photographers as well)

Oh and did I mention that we were kept full and happy thanks to Kelly’s mom and grandmother. Thank you Ladies! 

Oh and two more words.. DUCK DONUTS! 

Ok enough chatting… Reading?… Enjoy!
