As a Photographer, when hosting a "mini-session event", you never know what to expect! Especially when it's the first time for said event. Are the spots going to sell? Is anyone going to be interested? Am I totally insane for thinking this will work out? Those tend to be thoughts that roll around the brain at completely random times of the night when you should be sleeping. But, because I had this awesome vision, I knew I had to give it a shot. Frankly, I was expecting *maybe* 2 people to sign up (I was trying to think realistically, while my husband says it was more pessimistically). So, believe me when I tell you that I was OVER THE MOON to find out that I had 4, yes FOUR, Lovely Ladies take this leap with me! And....not just that, I had SEVERAL more tell me that they want to do it, but can't make the date---so I'd better have ANOTHER one!!! OH MY! Talk about seriously stunned and flattered!
And....based on how AWESOME the day was, I will TOTALLY be doing this again! I had so much fun! I wasn't kidding when I said that it would be a blast. I had an awesome Hair and Makeup Artist on set who made the girls look even more gorgeous than they already were...I had an incredible friend there to help me with my ninja-skills (and, she proved to be invaluable in helping me notice things I may have missed, and she was able to give insights to the ladies as she's had a Boudoir session with me before)...I had rented the most *amazing* studio (seriously, this place makes me drool, it's so beautiful!)...I had music and chocolate....and I even made sure I had the makings for Mimosa's (even if that included me forgetting the OJ at home, sending my husband out to Wawa for coffee and the OJ, him forgetting the OJ, and then running back---he was the best that day!)..
But, really, the best part of my day?? Was seeing these 4 BEAUTIFUL women have fun! They laughed, talked, got nervous, then threw caution to the wind and rocked out their sessions like pros! They were perfect, and I had SO much fun with all of them. Best bunch of women EVER!
So, now I have the amazing privilege of rocking out their edits (with minimal effort I might add, because they rocked it) and daydream about the NEXT time I host a Blitz---because, despite a couple hiccups, I would totally do this again!
