IGNITE 2018 // NJ Spark Workshop


I am SO EXCITED to share with you all a recap video of the Ignite 2018 Workshop that took place in March!  Amy, Cassi, Mekina, Jess and Debbie were the incredible speakers this year talking about website design, off-camera flash, second shooting, the art behind authentic and emotional posing, pricing and trusting God with big life changes in your business! Their words of wisdom and encouragement just blew me away - simply amazing!

If you are not familiar with Ignite, it is a free workshop for photographers held by the NJ Spark girls.  And NJ Spark is a group of Christian women photographers in NJ, NY and PA that meet weekly to discuss faith and photography. This is their way to serve and love on the photography community. The workshop is an amazing way to connect with others in the industry all while learning valuable information and resources to help grow your business. 

When the NJ Spark girls asked me to be apart of the workshop again this year, of course I said YES!  I attended last year and put together a recap video which you can watch here. I was so excited to not only to capture the amazing talks this year, but also seeing all the attendees learning, watching and growing right before my eyes.  This year, it was a one day workshop with 50+ attendees!  The best part about capturing the behind the scenes of the workshop was seeing the impact these girls were making on photography community and all the people around them! It was incredible!
