It feels like a lifetime ago that we gathered together, and although we miss our big annual conference, we are looking forward to seeing you in Idaho soon. 

We have put together a roster of amazing educators/photographers for this event and some really sweet content creation shoots. The goal with these shoots is to stretch your creativity, update & grow your portfolio, and have some fun!

Oh Golly, Miss Dolly [formal]

Join Jodi as she takes you along on a beautiful family storytelling session with a family of five in the mountains of Pocatello, Idaho. She will share how she styled the family from start to finish to add texture and visual interest and styled particularly for light. Watch as she naturally guides and prompts the family to bring out playful interaction and true connection with a variety of ages from young children to older children. She will also share her location scouting process, how she is looking at the backdrop, composition and considering changes in light, even into blue hour. You will be able to capture this gorgeous family too and get dreamy captures for your portfolio.

Think of a leisurely summer day… Warm tones of gold, mustard and rust paired with soft peach and rose to create a light filled, colorful and "nostalgic nod to summer" design. The newly constructed "The Hive" will be our airy backdrop to tell our seasonal story. Accompanied by a modern tablescape, lush floral ceremony setting and ethereal fashion… With Britt Warnick Designs & Lizy Bowden Floral, it will be fresh wedding content you will not want to miss.

Same shoot happening at 11am above. 

Interactive teaching shoot.

Devins entire focus is not only to give you beautiful imagery, but for you to walk away with the tools to maximize all your sessions going forward.

His focus will be on three things: 1. Teaching you to see faces as a puzzle piece & increasing intimacy, 2: Utilizing light and shadow to shape the images, bringing real emotion to life, and 3: Taking your images to the next level with the location and composition. Taking time to notice the subtle things that make your clients keep coming back. 


During this indoor couples session, we will focus on creating images that feel interrupted, true to life and emotive. The goal of this shoot is to better understand how to manufacture true emotion and preserve some truth about the nature of love. We will work on shooting for perspectives to inject realistic elements into your photographs. This will be an interactive shoot and I will be there as your resource to help along the way.

The session you keep pinning and dreaming of!

With a stunning pallet of creams and white, this minimally themed shoot aims to highlight the bright vibrant fabrics you'll be playing with.

Set in open fields with stunning natural backdrops and soft summer lighting, you'll learn Rodneys techniques for unique portrait imagery. 


If you follow Jamie you know she's known for her editorial work, especially when it comes to fabric and movement. Join her as she leads you through a stunning couples formal session that mixes elegance with nontraditional while teaching you the tricks to playing with fabric, using the light, and creating magazine worthy imagry.  

During this outdoor couples shoot, we will focus on creating beautiful photographs that feel like emotional movie stills while still honoring what is true to the couple in front of us. We will work on the technical aspects of stacking and finding triangles in photographs to hone your eye. This will be an interactive shoot and I will be there as your resource to help along the way.

Inspired by the soft and delicate movements of ballet, this  ballet themed couples shoot is sure to bring a new element of wow to your portfolio. Picture glorious fabrics, beautiful motion and authentic emotion. A play on light, haze, movement and connection.

Think Vogue, make it a couples edition... and boom you have magic! A sun soaked field of radiant light for a madly in love couple to frolic in.

Simplicity at its finest. Earthy natural fabrics mixed with the clean lines of the sand dunes. Focused on intimate simple connective moments between a family. 


An editorial inspired by the collision of light and shadow... Through minimalist fashion that moves, we will explore shape, perspective, and line in our editorial designed to discover the illusions that lie before, above, and all around us. Come ready to experiment compositionally, explore light with a fresh vision, and further motion and emotion in your work.  


This shoot will be a more lifestyle type shoot. Using movement and a “downtown” setting to facilitate your creativity. Take advantage of a more intimate crew to have more time to shoot. The hope is that you can create a more vintage silhouette to add to your portfolio.

The style of this shoot will be simple portraiture with a challenge to make an image that for yourself will stand the test of time. Let's Get Moody!

Throughout this prairie- inspired bridal shoot, we will work on the technical aspects of stacking and finding triangles in photographs to hone your eye while also maintaining the emotional undertones that make a photograph complex and moving. This will be an interactive shoot and I will be there as your resource to help along the way.



Ethnically Diverse couples session. Bold colors, vibrant accents, and tropical vibes on the white sand. 

This shoot will hit the editorial side of things while incorporating awesome color mapping and compositions. The idea is to let your creativity fly with a multi model shoot. The lighting will be the last couple hours before sunset to give dynamic light to capture the colors well with the sand giving an equal feel.

Sometimes its fun trying to do something out of the box. Sometimes its fun to not do what’s normal for your portfolio and expand your horizons to see your artistry expand. The style of this shoot is going use fun suiting that is all color mapped to help create a cool contrasted look with the dunes.
