I love how the universe works sometime. It was just kind of a fluke that I stumble upon this shoot-out with Liz Franco Photography. I had a few things that could have been a time constraint for going to it, so at first I was hesitant to sign up for it. Once I found out I had the time, I jumped on the opportunity, like the day before.
Liz is an amazing photographer out of Chicago and she loves teaching, and sharing her wealth of knowledge with other photographers. I had seen some of her work, and I knew this shoot was going to be SO fun, but I was also kind of bummed that I missed her workshop up in Leavenworth just the weekend before. Facebook likes to do crazy things to me and not show me awesome opportunities until they have already past. I hate it for that. So while I didn’t get to spend a few days up in Leavenworth with Liz and some other amazing photographers in our area, I was able to meet some new friends the night of our shoot out! Some that I have followed for year, but have been too afraid of the backlash to say anything to them. And some that I hadn’t heard of before, which is always fun!
We had such a fun time with our two differently styled shoots. Basically, if you tell me I’m going to get to photograph a gorgeous girl WITH a horse, I’m there….EVERYTIME! We had fun getting to know each other, shooting in a gorgeous location, with some amazing light, and it was really just fun to be able to step outside of the box and do something that I wouldn’t get to do every day. 😀
Thanks Liz and Mari for getting this put together! I can’t wait to do it again soon!!
