I’m always looking to improve my photography and to learn from the best in my field. Learning from books is great, but nothing beats learning from a pro in person. So you can imagine how thrilled I was to hear that my favorite newborn photographer, Rachel Vanoven would be hosting a workshop just a few hours away in Jacksonville! And it was a blast! Rachel is so fun and silly – she really made the whole experience wonderful. I’m so glad I got a chance to meet her! It was like meeting a celebrity – so amazing to meet someone you’ve admired and followed online! Finally posting a few shots from the workshop!
The first part of the workshop, our models were the beautiful family of Jazmin Johnson, a Jacksonville photographer from Lilipop Photography. She had just given birth a few days before and she brought her gorgeous little girls. Doesn’t big sister Lily have the sweetest smile? **MELT**
You can tell the proud papa was already smitten by his new little love! He has both his daughters’ names tattooed on his forearms – beautiful!
