Great News!!

While I was in Zimbabwe, I got some awesome news! Here's the story...

Back in September, a fellow wedding photographer, Davina Fear, was offering a scholarship to a new photographer just starting out on their own for $500 towards a seminar or workshop of their choice. As soon as I heard about it, I got excited! First of all, I could use a workshop, and even had one in mind. Second, I could use that $500!! Plus, the scholarship would include 2 mentoring sessions with Davina - and that's pretty awesome!

I mentioned the scholarship to Matt & Enna Grazier, and they totally encouraged me to apply. In fact, before I'd even begun my application, they each sent recommendations to Davina on my behalf. They were the sweetest, most supportive letters, and I practically started crying when I read them. So, at that point, I had to apply! So, just under the wire I sent in my application, and prayed that God would do whatever He wanted with it...

As it turns out, I WON! Can you believe it?? I'm so excited! I can't wait to connect with Davina, and I can't wait to go to the workshop! I decided to attend Liana Lehman's Photo Business Boot Camp next month here in Boston. I think it's going to be awesome for me and for my business, and I am so grateful to have this scholarship to help me do it!

Thank you Davina for your willingness to help other photographers pursue their dreams! I feel so honored and blessed by this opportunity!

  1. Good for you! I can't wait to hear about Liana's boot camp. It was great seeing her at WPPI. It's even better to get some money towards her Boot Camp :)
