Hello to everyone!

I still cannot believe that Shannon has been here and gone again. In January I boarded a train with my mom and sister bound for New York to meet Shannon and take her workshop. That trip will always be one of my favourite memories in life. Photographing in Times Square (in temperatures that were obscene) and hanging out with Shannon at the W hotel talking shop. It was only a matter of days upon arriving home that I asked Shannon to come to Ontario. She happily answered yes!

So here I sit a week after our workshop writing you about our time with Shannon. We could not have asked for better weather, workshop attendees and location for a workshop. The workshop was held at the beautiful Westover Inn in St. Mary’s, ON (a charming and picturesque town). The owners and staff of the Inn were beyond amazing to us. Thank you for making our experience so fabulous!

We had a great day listening to Shannon talk about her photography journey and creative vision. Shannon collaborated with Lisa’s Mini Mad Hattery and ZoZoBugBaby to come up with the most incredible outfits for our models!

We would like to thank the following vendors for donating their amazing products to our workshop and a big thank you to Ang for helping out behind the scenes with so many of the details of the day!

To the wonderful photographers that attended the workshop – thank you for bringing your most genuine self. You were a fantastic group of honest, kind and fun photographers.

STAY TUNED…Shannon is coming back next August!!! We are looking to do a workshop or two in either the Toronto or Niagara area. I won’t say I can’t wait (because that will make me almost 39) but I will say that we are ecstatic that Shannon might just bring her whole family next time. Looking forward to it!!

And to Shannon. I am so happy our paths in life have crossed. I loved our truly “girl” time with you and Ang. It has been way too long since I sat with great friends and chatted until after midnight. Something I must make more room for. Thank you for your kindness and unique perspective on life. I simply adore you and I look forward to seeing you again….xo


Thank you to Ang for taking these beautiful photos of the Inn.
