A few weeks ago, I attended the Savvy Sisterhood – Workshop on the Waterfront in Alys Beach, FL and can now officially call myself a Savvy Sister. Mother Nature tried her best to make things difficult by dumping a ton a rain on us for pretty much the entire weekend, but we adapted and overcame and didn’t let the rain keep us from laughing, learning and enjoying every minute.
Our accommodations in Alys Beach were top notch, the houses were absolutely spectacular and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who wanted to move in permanently. Our pinkalicious monogrammed swag bags were filled with all sorts of goodies and greeted us cheerfully as we were escorted to our rooms by our awesome workshop host, Marsha, who you might know better as the Savvy Photographer.
Unfortunately, the weather did prevent us from getting to do any beach shooting, but like I said, we made the best of the conditions and were blessed with some very patient and cooperative (not to mention gorgeous) models who were more than willing to dodge a little rain for us.
Our speakers’ presentations were full of TONS of amazing information and so inspiring. Alice, Beth, Kara, and Laura, I cannot thank you all enough for sharing yourselves with us and am so honored to have met each of you. And to my fellow Savvy attendees, it was a pleasure meeting each of you, too! I look forward to following all of you on your photography journeys and have no doubt that there are big things in store for you ladies!
Of course, one of the very best things about attending this workshop is that I was able to be there with my dear friend, Lisa. We had so much fun together, as we always do, and I hated it when it was time for us to part company…which we did in Atlanta of all places, there’s nothing quite like a cancelled flight to make getting home an interesting adventure. Lisa and I (and all of the attendees) had head shots done while we were there and the fabulous Kara May captured these for us.
There is already talk of a Savvy reunion and I can’t wait until it’s time to pack back up and go see my “Savvy Sistas” again. Party bus, anyone? 😉
