2014 Sweet + Lacey Workshop

HH!!! Back in November -- I hosted the first annual Sweet + Lacey workshop and we seriously had an amazing time!!! We talked about everything from posing to lens choice to pricing!!! We had spaghetti and salad for lunch -- because y'all know I have to eat...  
and we had sweet tea!!!! 
Some of the attendees might be surprised to find out -- but I was apparently SUPER sick that day.... I ended up having a fever of about 103 the entire workshop and felt like my head was going to explode... but I put on my game face and pushed through because I was SO SO excited to teach and share things... I think only a couple people knew that I felt like I was on my death bed... AHH!!!!

Teaching is something I am SO very passionate about... it's not something I do just to bring in money!!! I put a LOT of love and passion into my workshops and into teaching...  
I recently had a mentoring session with one of my favorite sweet photographers - and she showed up and said... 'Don't I owe you money...' -- y'all.. I was literally so excited about hanging out with her and chatting about photography that I completely forgot that she hadn't paid me... thankfully, she was honest. HA!!!! I also recently turned down a mentoring session because taking it just didn't seem right, and I referred her to someone who was a better fit for what she was wanting!!!! I just don't think that saying... 'I really love this' does enough justice for how I truly feel.  
I guess you can compare it to wanting your children to grow up to be better than you... that's how I feel about others... I want the photogs that I mentor, to end up better than me... I want to learn something from them.. I want them to have bigger dreams than I have. 
I am blessed to have this business and I have been blessed with the gift of photography and a passion for teaching... I am so thankful for it... I take it seriously.... and if I can just help one person... that's reward enough for me! 
"This Workshop was nothing less than AMAZING!!! If you are a photographer or thinking about getting serious about your photography I highly recommend taking a workshop offered by Sharon Elizabeth Photography, she is so talented and her workshops are a blast!!! "
