The day after we moved to Denver, I left on a flight to Chicago to finally meet my biggest photography inspiration (and IDOL) … AUDREY WOULARD! Not only was I getting to meet Audrey, but one of my best friends in the whole world, Jamie (also an amazing photographer) came with me for an unforgettable weekend. We stayed in a swanky hotel, waaaaaay cooler than both of us combined, ate some awesome food, nearly got killed in a taxi, met some other great photographers from all around the world, and of course, got to meet and be mentored by one of our biggest inspirations! I’ve been to several workshops to learn the business of photography, etc. but this time, Jamie and I splurged to learn from a photographer’s who technical skill is second to none. It was such an honor to watch her shoot and chat one on one with her as well. Needless to say, we both left on cloud nine when Audrey told us both in person she was a fan of our work … just the confidence boost we both needed to get out there, trust our guts and continue to create using what we both feel is a precious gift we’ve been given.
While I loved hearing in person that Audrey thought my work was excellent, last night I got news from Jamie that she linked both of us to her BLOG? WHAT?? Let’s just say the news made my night (read: LIFE)! It’s always is great to hear from clients that I am doing my job well, even better to get compliments from other photographers, but to have someone that you admire so much in your industry share your work with the world (literally) is an honor difficult to describe.
I just wanted to share my good news with all of you who continually support me and motivate me to do what I do!
Now, here’s some hilarious pics of Jamie and I being serious POSERS in Audrey’s loft. (sorry Jame!) LOL. We both CANONOT and SHOULD NOT try a serious face. Just doesn’t work. Case in point: Mike just walked up behind me and asked who those girls were … NO LIE. LOL! In all fairness, we were testing out my new camera, trying to get it to focus properly.
Our signature pose, nonetheless …
I really can’t stop laughing at these pictures of us. hehehe.
