The Jasmine Star Workshop

I was nervous. So very nervous. I was about to meet a group of photographers at dinner the night before the Workshop. And these girls are amazing photographers. And Jasmine was going to be there too. There I was, just finished grad school in accounting, and I was entering a room filled with so much experience in photography. But when I walked in and met the girls, all those nerves were gone. That's how amazing this group was. I felt welcome right away and part of this group of photographers.

The next day was The Workshop. The. Jasmine. Star. Workshop. Ever since I first saw Jasmine's work I was inspired. Her creativity, passion and determination showed through each photo she took and each word she wrote. And I was getting the opportunity to learn from her. I never imagined just how much I would learn from Jasmine. It was truly an amazing day!!

Jasmine is so fabulous that she wrote each one of us a handwritten note!

Our models for the day were the beautiful Jihan and her handsome husband Joe.

Jihan's gorgeous makeup was by the lovely Vivian of All Made Up

JL Designs created this beautiful bouquet for the Workshop.

This blog post wouldn't be complete without a picture (or two) of Jasmine!

J*, JD, and all the girls: thank you, thank you, thank you! for an incredible day. I learned so much from all of you and am so blessed to have gotten to know you!!
