One of the things I really love about being a photographer is all the other wonderful photographers I get to meet. Last year, my good friend and fellow photographer Scarlett Lillian had a great idea and announced a contest to celebrate the launch of a workshop she was offering to other photographers. There were so many fun entries but there was something extra special about the winning entry that Lyndsay of Pink Coffee Photo Art sent in. I just couldn't get over her style. I mean, she wore a pink crinoline and animal print boots for her entry. Does it get any better than that?! So over the past few months we have shot together at PUG, had a blast at WPPI in Vegas and chatted on Twitter and Facebook about all sorts of things. I was also a part of the night shoot in Vegas that Lyndsay and her husband Anderson modeled for. It was all smiles and excitement when Lyndsay sent me an email that she was putting together a photographer/girls day out this past weekend. I woke up pretty sick but I wasn't going to let it ruin my day. I put on a sunny yellow top, hoping it would somehow help me feel better, and headed off to Jacksonville. After walking around downtown completely lost for what felt like two hours, I found Lyndsay, Adrienne, Jess, Tara and Stephanie. It was a perfect day for shooting.
Tara of NFC Photography has such a fun style. I wanted to shoot her all day! She was amazing in front of the camera. Oh and hello, amazing tattoos on this girl! So of course I couldn't resist a shot of at least one of them.
Adrienne of Lovebyrds Photography has a magnetic personality. She is so sweet and warm. I could chat with her for hours! Like Tara, she was gorgeous in front of the camera too.
Stephanie of Stephanie Lynn Photography is fun and up for just about anything. She always makes time to talk to everyone so you never feel left out when she is around. She rocked her shots and looked fabulous. She is a pretty great girl and totally fun to chat with.
Jess of Jess Cumbie Photography also entered the contest and her entry was pretty amazing too! Jess is so easy to talk to and had no problem sharing her business knowledge. Yep, she pretty much rocked.
The only shot of Jess I managed to capture
It is pretty amazing that we are all photographers but we each have a unique style behind the camera. See for yourself what Lyndsay, Tara, Stephanie, Jess and Adrienne posted on their own sites. These girls are all so talented and I had a blast shooting with them!
I loved each and every shot in black and white too and had a real hard time deciding to post color or black and white shots here. You can check out all the shots tomorrow on Facebook. For now, I am beyond ready to get some sleep!
