Three Days at Tamara Lackey's Studio

Last week I had the incredible opportunity to attend a 3-day workshop in the North Carolina studio of one of the leading kid and family photographers in the world, Tamara Lackey. I've been a huge fan of her work for a few years and met her after attending her presentation last year at Photoshop World in Las Vegas.

For three days I and twelve other people got to watch her shoot, shoot alongside her and get pointers directly from Tamara. To say it was amazing experience doesn't even touch it. There's absolutely no doubt that it'll change the way I shoot forever. I learned new techniques and got to practice others that I thought I had covered. I learned so much.

We got to shoot in a variety of conditions and with several kids and adults. These weren't models - they were real kids just like yours (and mine) who don't want to do what you want them to do or sit still and get bored. And as if that wasn't challenging enough, we even added a puppy to the mix!

If you ever have the chance to learn directly from someone who is a master at their craft - do it!

These are a few of my favorite shots that I shot at the workshop. I'm looking forward to taking the knowledge I learned over these three amazing days and bringing it home to Texas to capture some beautiful, fun moments in the lives of families here!
