If I sat down & thought about it, I really couldn’t remember how I had discovered CeFloFePhos (Central Florida Female Photographers), but I can tell you how lucky I feel that I have! This amazing group of girls have taught me so much about myself & photography. They are the apitomy of what our photography industry should stand for – friendship, loyalty, teaching & fun! The group gets together twice a year for retreats thanks to our leader Sarah Bray & we travel to destination where we talk, share, have fun and photograph. I love every second of it, and these girls have become the people I look up to, my sisters, the people I ask for advice, the girls I can talk to about anything with. These girls are what is rare in life and I am so thankful to get to be apart of something so great.
This past weekend we ventured out to Westgate River Ranch in South Florida for a Fashion Shoot. River Ranch is the largest Dude Ranch in the United States, and the people here are where the term southern hospitality orginated & cowboys were born and bred. From the country accents and the polite tip of the hat, I felt transported to another world.
Everything about this place was beautifully untouched and I was sad to only be able to stay for the day but happy to be able to photograph in such an amazing location!
- Models: Sarita & our impromptu Male Model Zach
- Westgate River Ranch & all the nice people there.
- And ofcourse the CeFlo Girls for making every moment memorable!
This post is a little…OK! ALOT past due, but I’m slowly catching up with the world.
I feel so blessed an honored to have been able to attend this workshop. The week before Kristen Weaver with Images for a Cure did a Twitter and Facebook giveaway for some seats to the workshop. I got on my knees, prayed, then hit send about a million times overloading her twitter. Thankfully it paid off & the next week I was sitting in a chair surrounding by an amazing group of photographers and getting the opportunity to listen to some amazing speakers who I adore and thoroughly envy for their talent!
The next day we got the once in a lifetime opportunity to break up into groups with one of our favorite photographers and do a mini workshop with them. I was so lucky to get my first choice Kristen Weaver. Kristen is a international Wedding & Fashion photographer and let me tell you her work is to die for!
A special thanks you to Kristen Weaver for putting this whole thing together and giving this amazing opportunity!

I had the amazing opportunity a few weekends ago to attend a photographer’s workshop given by an amazing Orlando Photographer Tabitha McCausland. I love going to any photography/business workshop as it keep me growing not only as a photographer but as a person and business owner.
When I heard that there was going to be a photoshoot following the workshop, and it was to included Brides & Horses, I was salivating like a dog at the dinner table. I was so excited for the day to come, that when it finally did I forgot about the fact that I am deadly allergic to horses. Oh yes people, we are talking my whole body broke in hives, eye swollen almost shut and uncontrollable itching to the point that I left bruises on my skin.
But to say it was all worth it would be a understatment!
Here are some pictures that I took from the workshop.
