Hello to everyone!
This is one exciting post….for so many reasons!
First. Let me introduce Shannon Sewell. Instead of attempting to convey to you her incredible visionary talent and photographic abilities – I would suggest you visit her website here….shannon sewell. I think her work will tell you very quickly who Shannon is and what she is giving to the world of photography.
I had a last minute opportunity to meet Shannon and take one of her courses when a very kind photographer, Ms Nicole Mayhorn, said she would share her mentorship day with me. And the workshop…in New York city of course! How could one not take this opportunity to work with Shannon in one of the coolest cities in America? This also gave me a special chance to spend five days with my mom and sister in New York. Shannon, Nicole and myself spent the day together discussing all things photography and a few things about our own lives. It was FFFFFrreeeezzzing in New York that weekend but there was something about shooting two beautiful twins in Times Square that made the temperatures bearable. Here are some of my shots from the shoot that Shannon stylized and arranged for us! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Nicole, for being so generous and to Shannon for sharing your time, talent and gentle soul with us.
And the best part…a workshop in ONTARIO yes ONTARIO is in the works!! Shannon will be doing two – one day workshops this fall…did I mention here in ONTARIO?!:) I am honoured to be hosting Shannon here for this exciting workshop. The sign up list is now open! You can message me at firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on the e-mail list for this incredible opportunity. The workshop will be held an hour from Toronto (heading towards cottage country) this fall.
I have to mention that my Mom, sister and I sat front row on the View show taping while in NYC. One arms length from Barbara Walters, Whoopi, Joy, Sheri and Elisabeth!! And the special guest that day…BRAD from the Bachelor. It was my lucky day:)
