What an absolutely wonderful weekend for Wendy Hardin Photography and Sara E Rose Photography! Two friends just sitting around months ago dreaming of the day we would hold our very own workshop for Moms. Moms who have no intentions of becoming professional photographers, but Moms who truly just want to learn their fancy cameras. Mommas who just want to take GREAT photos of their kiddos. Mommas who want to move those knobs off of AUTO and onto Manual. Ladies who want to come sit with a small group of 10 and learn from two MOMS who love photography, love children and love teaching. We wanted to create a workshop to Pay It Forward. And, we did! WE DID, y’all! Everyone keeps asking “so, how was your first workshop?”. Guys, it was better than we could have ever expected. Sure, we have some areas we need to work on, but who doesn’t? We spent an hour and 45 minutes in the classroom. We then traveled over to the Farmer’s Market for more shooting. Wendy’s precious niece joined us. And, the last half hour we sat in the sunshine in a circle and just talked. We couldn’t be more proud of our first CLICK. And, the feedback we have received since it hit social media on Saturday is insane. We have over two dozen ladies interested in the next one. We still can’t get over that when we put up the registration for this first one it booked in less than 5 minutes. All 10 spots were booked and we just looked at each other in awe. Grateful & Humbled we are.
So, when are we announcing the next date? THIS WEEK. Wen and I need to sit down and look at our calendars. Since we both have already starting booking Summer our dates are limited but we will find one that works.
We are so lucky to have had such a beautiful day and a group like we did for our very first Moms Click Workshop. We are so very proud of these ladies. And, look forward to watching them grow and capture life the way they’ve always wanted to. (taken with an iPhone by our precious 6 year old model, bella….not pictured are Jess & Annie)
To add to our happiness we received this feedback this morning from one of our attendees who traveled in from Chattanooga to attend the workshop ::
“I’m so thankful that Sara and Wendy took the time to share their knowledge and encourage me. The camera that up until Saturday has been used exclusively on auto can now proudly show off:) The most valuable thing I took away from the workshop was the exposure triangle and having a person sit alongside me and step by step teach me so I could figure it out. The knobs and numbers were so overwhelming to me before the workshop. I’m no expert, I know I have tons to learn, but you both provided me with a great grasp of where and how to get started comfortably.
My husband was so impressed with how much I took away from the class. This is exactly what I wanted to take the moment he bought me that camera almost 3 years ago and I’m so grateful you held this workshop. I love your hearts and your honesty with how you presented the factual/technical part and the hands on part was/is invaluable. I cannot say enough how much I appreciated being a part of this and I hope you all found as much joy in it as I did.” – Dannis
