I Dream of Photography - Part 1: The Love Your Camera Session.

I have tons of dreams and goals for myself and for my life. They include things as simple as go to the beach more than two times this summer, all the way to travel the US in an RV and write a couple more novels at some point in my life. I have never had a shortage of hobbies and it seems that my list of goals or dreams is quite lengthy too.

One dream has been surfacing a bit this past year and I kept saying "Someday..." and pushing it back down. Telling it to be quiet. You see, I'm an introvert and I despise public speaking. I get sweaty arm pits and I stammer like an idiot. If you've seen me try to speak in public in any way or form, you know exactly what I mean because you've seen me blubber and sweat.

I've written about this dream a couple times this past year, here and here

That dream is to hold a photography workshop. To help teach those who want to learn more about their camera. To help people learn to take better photos of their family or loved ones. To help people get the most out of their cameras and use them to their fullest potential.

As many of you have heard or read, I made the anxious and nervous decision a week or two ago to make that dream a reality. I decided to have the first ever Love Your Camera workshop and I put it out on the internet. Scary, unnerving, exciting, and ahhhh - all rolled into one. I am excited to share my knowledge with the wonderful people who are attending. It is going to be hands on and very personal. Hopefully that will keep my blubbering and sweating under control - not TOO big of a crowd. :)

I am so excited to turn one of my dreams into a 'done that!'

I want people to be able to take better photos of their daily life. To think about the photo they want to compose and create before they press the shutter button. I want to make people excited about their photos! Because life deserves to be documented.

I have a sneaking suspicion that it might take a little longer than 3 hours to cover everything I want to cover. Once I made my outline, I thought 'Oops... this might take longer.' So we might go until 5pm.

If you would like to come to this workshop, I'd love to have you. You can email me for information on what to do next. 

I want to thank everyone who has encouraged me over this past year, who has nudged me toward taking the leap and deciding to hold this workshop. I think it will be a great experience, both for the attendees and for myself.
