I was a little starstruck when Joy & her husband Donnie first introduced themselves. The workshop started right off the bat with a themed family photo shoot which was a great way to break the ice and to just get us going. I loved the simple authentic ways she styled everyone so the theme carries through while not being overdone or getting too costume-y.
I loved watching Joy interact with the family and learning how she keeps it moving while getting very natural, expressive, and emotional images. It was really fascinating. Here are some of my favorites.
Here are some from the photo shoot she set up on day 2.
It wasn’t just amazing shoot after amazon shoot. There was also a lot of talking and sharing. I was blown away by how open Joy was about EVERYTHING. From business and starting up to getting inspiration, dealing with difficult clients, photo shoot nightmares, her editing process, insecurities, personal goals and much more. She was incredible. I was actually blesses to meet several incredible and very very talented women this week. It already feels like a dream.
