In October I went down to Tampa,Florida to do a Dave Cross Workshop with Shannon Michelle. Shannon is a fashion photographer out of Boston who does boudoir as well. Shannon was terrific and I liked her right from the moment we met. We instantly bonded over our love of Starbucks. It was fascinating to hear all about her experience with the fashion industry, business and life. Over the course of the two days I learned so much and on the last day we got a chance to photograph Tiffany, a stunning model from the area. That experience was really amazing; it was the first time I had ever shot within a group of photographers. It taught me a great deal about myself that day. :)
Earlier this year Shannon contacted me and asked me if she could use some of the images from that workshop to show on her blog. I was more than happy to oblige! It is so exciting to see my work on another photographer’s blog whom I respect and follow. So cool! I am so grateful to Shannon for sharing her knowledge, my images and love of Starbucks. Thank you Shannon, you’re the best xoxo- laurie marie
P.S. I did not bribe her to use my images in exchange for Starbucks… just wanted to be clear on that :) lol.
