Earlier I posted about Chris putting on some photography workshops for several photographers, and here are Lindsay and Matt's pictures from the night. Lindsay and Matt were awesome!! They're both incredibly good looking and tons of fun, which makes my job that much easier!! :) (and no they're not engaged...they were just modeling for us)

Thanks Lindsay and Matt for being so awesome!

Thanks Chris for putting on the great workshop!

Future of Sarah Jeanne Photography

I'm way excited for the future of Sarah Jeanne Photography! Some big changes will be coming soon! :) I've currently booked 4 weddings for this summer on my own, plus a few that I will help Chris with.

Chris has been putting on some workshops for a group of us that are wanting to improve on our photography skills. My sister, Essie, was in town over Spring Break and we used her for a senior portraits model. Check out my new online gallery where all of my photos will now be posted.

Photography Workshop #1

Chris from La Brisa Photography hosted a workshop for 6 other photographers last week. His goal was to help new and upcoming photographers work on different aspects of photography. Lindsay and Matt volunteered to model for us, and they were so helpful in our learning. They did anything we asked, which made it that much better! Here are a few pictures of the photographers in action. Pictures of Lindsay and Matt coming soon!!

Best Prank Ever!!

Well if you know me at all, you know that I absolutely love watching people being pranked (if that's even a word). I just find great joy in it, probably because I am my father's daughter. :) If you find great pleasure in pranks, check out these two videos I stole from a couple people. Thanks Chris and Chris!

Meeting Erica May!

This past weekend my friend Nichole took me for a home town visit to Kansas City; Lenexa to be more specific. What a weekend it was! Nichole has become one of my best friends through the past year or so, and it was so nice to meet her family and friends and see where she grew up. Between the road trip there, the amazing food her dad cooked, some extreme bowling and of course the great KC shopping, we definitely had an amazing weekend! Even though I'm still trying to catch up on some sleep. :)

But for the highlight of my weekend, I finally got to meet Erica May Short from Erica May Photography! I've known and heard all about Erica ever since I started assisting Chris at La Brisa Photography. Erica emailed me shortly after I started helping Chris, introducing herself and giving me some great tips and words of encouragement. Since then we have exchanged several emails but never had the chance to actually meet. So after I found out I would be in KC, I asked her if we could get together and meet so I could ask her a million photography questions. And of course, she said yes because she is just that nice!

We met for some lunch and then headed to her house for some more conversation. All I can say is that not only is she an amazing photographer, but she's an even more amazing person! Erica shared so much about her photography, goals and life. It's amazing how much I learned from her in a few short hours. She was so encouraging to me. I've never been so confident that I can actually do this. So thank you Erica! You were awesome and I can't wait for some more meeting times and possibly a few weddings together! :)

Click here to see what she did in just 5 minutes with me. :)

Thanks again Erica! And thank you Nichole for showing me around your hometown! We will have to plan a trip to Sharon Springs America soon!! :)
