What a weekend!

These are some of the images that I shot at the Michigan workshop over the weekend.

We were fortunate to meet and take pictures of Debbie's children, Li Li and Ian.

They were so well behaved and such plain NICE children. Also extremely patient with 11 women with cameras in these 2 kids' faces. ;)

These last 3 were taken on a night shoot in Ann Arbor. The above one is a fellow blogger who is a very talented photographer and about to travel to China to adopt again. She's a sweetie too!

2 more from the night photo shoot.

Well the workshop was incredible. I met some fellow bloggers that I 'knew' through their blogs but had never met in real life. Let me say that their blogs are truly a reflection of these people....funny, caring, compassionate and dedicated women who all have their own individual gifts. They are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. I also met some new friends and I know that we'll keep in contact. We did have some funny adventures getting a little bit lost, believe me there was never a dull moment! LOL

Finally, if you have the opportunity to attend one of Debbie's workshop's, I highly recommend it. She is a gifted photographer and a natural teacher. Debbie is very soft spoken, patient and teaches to each person's skill level. I walked away with a lot to think about, loads of new information and some new friendships. I'm already signed up for her Chicago workshop in August...I can't wait!
You can see more of my images from the workshop on my flickr photostream here.
I'll be adding more as I edit them this week.
