Earlier this month I had the incredible honor of attending my sweet friend’s group mentorship! I first met Cassie last year when I second shot with her and we became fast friends. She is a constant source of support, kindness, and an incredible wealth of knowledge. When she had announced the details of her group mentorship, I knew it was something that I wanted to attend.
We started our time in a classroom setting going over some fun business topics, discussions about how to interact with other industry vendors, and each of us had to be brave as Cassie brought up our portfolio images for everyone to see. Even though I know that I love my work, I get so nervous when others look at it!…..just me? Ok….
After we took a short break for lunch, it was time for the styled shoot portion of the day. Cassie had an incredible team that designed and worked hard to create pure magic!!
I absolutely loved meeting all of the attendees and walking away with more business knowledge, an overflowing creative cup, and new friends!! Enjoy a few of my favorites from Cassie’s group mentorship!
