inspire boston: the shoots!

In addition to planning and attending inspire Boston 2011 in Concord MA this year, I had the pleasure of teaching two shooting workshops on wedding day posing. Shooting workshops are something that I am very passionate about teaching! Normally I limit my class size to only 5 per class to give as much one on one attention as needed. For the sake of teaching more I had bigger classes, and everyone was great!

My first couple were such troopers! Eric and Amber of RAW Photo Design were more than willing to freeze in the rain for some C10 snuggle time, and I was much obliged! Major props and thanks to my favorite dress shop: The White Dress by the Shore in Clinton CT! The stunning florals were by my homie Tony Palmieri of Datura A Modern Garden!

Here I illustrate my favorite pose: the C1o Modified Prom baby!! Try it sitting down, it’s awesome!

I was one of the documentarians of the conference so I popped in to see how RAW was doing at their workshop… it was COLD out but she is such a trooper!!!

My Wednesday class featured my favorite stylist of Dana Bartone and Company in Cheshire CT and not just because she is my own personal one! Yes, she is responsible for my pink ‘do!! Miss Catie Bane and her beau, Brandon agreed to come to Concord and be my models for the afternoon, and I was PUMPED! Now, these high school sweethearts have never seen each other dressed up in wedding day attire, so I decided to throw in a first look for the class and show them how I set one up!! How adorable are they!!!
