I have always been fueled by my passion of creating and this year marked my dedication to really push myself and invest in my education. I attended Kati Hoy’s Self Love workshop in Manzanita, Oregon where I had the opportunity to connect with so many talented, crazy-passionate, like-minded individuals.
It’s amazing the types of friendships that can arise just from spending a weekend together with strangers. Everyone instantly connected as though we were long-time friends and we all learned from one another and even today, we continue to celebrate each other’s success stories.
Brooke and Jonathan were our models for the weekend and they are GOALS in every way possible. They are a husband and wife photography team, unexplainably gorgeous, and insanely kind and free-spirited.
We experienced freezing cold weather—it was snowing just minutes from the coast—and pouring rain. It was quite the challenge to wipe my gear clean after ever couple of photos.
All in all, I pushed myself passed my comfort zone and created memories that will last a lifetime. I was so honored to document these two amazing humans and so thankful to Kati for everything she did to help make this workshop a success.
