The Retreats

In 2011, travel changed my life.  I was two years into my business, burnt out, exhausted and ready to quit until a trip to Paris gave me new inspiration to keep on going.  Now it's 13 years later and over and over again travel saved me.  I want you to experience this too.

My retreats are NOT like your typical wedding or photographer workshop.  There is no classroom time, special speakers, or a full wedding styled shoot. In fact, you don't even need to be a photographer to attend my retreats. I've created these retreats around the 5 types of rest that we need in order to run a successful business.

Physical Rest - I've scheduled purposeful "down-time"
Mental Rest - I encourage you to disconnect from social media
Creative Rest - A unique editorial photo shoot based on our location (NOT wedding inspired) and photowalks around our location and yes, anyone can join these, even with your iphone!
Sensory Rest - New places, new food, new experiences
Emotional Rest - Travel with like-minded creatives who "get" it

My Friend,  You are in the right place. These retreats are just for you.

Longing for connections, pretty places, inspiration, building your international portfolio and rest?

These retreats are something you do for YOU so that you can be the best for your family and your clients. You can't pour from an empty cup friend and on these retreats I will teach you how I have turned my love of travel into a print shop, licensing my work, selling as stock photos and even creating products from my work to create multiple streams of passive income.
I offer these beautiful retreats in a small group setting (only 4-6 attendees) to keep things small and intimate.

So how will this work?
I've booked a 5 bedroom apartment in Paris for the month of April and a 5 bedroom cottage in the Cotswolds the entire month of June.  I will have 3 different planned out weekly retreats and you can have the choice to add on days before or after the retreat so you can come in early or stay later for the weekend markets!  This will allow me to lower the daily rate to make it more affordable and everyone will have their own room!  Who's excited???!!!

We are in the middle of our 2024 retreats but now it's time to INTRODUCE OUR EVENTS FOR 2025 and I'm offering something completely NEW!

Instead of traveling around to different places in 2025, I want to introduce you to my two FAVORITE Pretty Places and make it more affordable and flexible because times are hard this year y'all.

My super power is bringing people together, hospitality and gifting. Let me introduce you to my favorite pretty places in Europe and the US, while you rediscover your passion for your business again. We all need a reset and this is exactly what I have created these retreats for.
This is something you do for yourself so that you can be a better wife, partner, mother, and business owner while learning how to add in travel images for passive income.

In case you are wondering...

You don't have to be a professional photographer to attend. This retreat is open to all women creative entrepreneurs but if you know me, I cannot do a retreat without planning a beautiful lifestyle editorial shoot that is both inspirational and magazine worthy. Also taking a day to create and shoot for ourselves is the best thing ever for creativity!
Usually our non-photographers enjoy reading, exploring or resting during this time or pick up a disposable film camera and just have fun!

Each retreat will have an editorial, creative shoot, inspired by art, books and locations with a nod to era's past.  The shoot is professionally styled with a model and a story-telling theme.

My shoots are not "wedding" related. They are editorial in nature and are inspired by bygone eras and our locations. They always involve fashion and movement in my feminine & dreamy signature style. Our shoots tell a story and gives you a chance to step out of your normal shooting comfort zone and I will show you how I use these types of shoots to sell to magazines and stock photo sites for passive income.
I truly believe that we need diversity and we need to step outside of our norm for creativity. This is how I reset, and trust me, you need this in your business as well. Each retreat will be styled differently so you can attend more than one if you want to! No repeats here!

How about a Paris Penthouse Apartment with a balcony view of the city?  Or how about a Fairytale  Cottage or Historic Estate home? 

 I spend the majority of our budget on our accommodations.  We want to embrace the culture of each location with beautiful authentic surroundings

Historic accommodations

You only have to get yourself to our main location.  We will have the rest all planned out for you!  This is a retreat and we take care of all the details!  I have been traveling to these locations for years and I know all the best places to eat and explore! We are even happy to help you plan your trip over! You will be placed in a group to connect with the other attendees and many plan to meet up and explore other areas before and after the retreat! We strongly recommend coming in a few days early to adjust if possible!

Breakfast every day, tours and transportation during the workshop.

I highly encourage you to try out film during the retreat! So  to help with that, I'm giving you access to my Into to film online course before the retreat!

Also, as an alumni, you will forever get discounts on any other educational offerings and future retreats.

I will also be giving you my guide to using travel images to create passive income through a printshop, licensing, selling stock photos and products.

So let's do a little review...

My journey started in 2008.  I've traveled the world shooting weddings & teaching workshops. I've been an educator in the photography industry. I've had celebrity clients and have been published worldwide in publications and blogs.  My life was full but I found myself in a constant state of burnout and stress. Then 2020 happened.  I've now realized in the last four years that it's time for change. I also learned  that I'm so much more than my accomplishments and I'm still valuable even if I step down from weddings.

My new love finds me still traveling the world, but taking you with me.  My images are licensed and featured in major stores, magazines and books. I own a print and product shop and I also wrote my first book.  My mission is helping you create beauty, see the world, be inspired and build a business based on your own Success and to show you how to use travel images to build passive income.

“Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.”
– Ibn Battuta

Is travel included in the price?

Yes and No.  Travel during the workshop is included but you are required to get yourself to and from our main location.  But don't fear.  We will help you out with this and you will be placed in a instagram group with other attendees so you can maybe even travel together!
