In March, we attended the Dream Bigger Retreat Creative Mastermind event, a retreat for wedding and portrait photographers. It was hosted in Lincoln City by our members Alison Murray and Samantha Shannon, and featured hands-on learning, goal setting workshops, and styled shoots. It was an amazing experience for our group to connect and spend time really investing in strengthening the photographic community here in Newberg!
Most of the photographers who attended live in Newberg, and specialties ranged from family and newborn photography to commercial and branding photography, all the way to wedding photography! With such a wide range of specialties, each person had knowledge to share. We heard from Rachael at Wishflower Photography on flat lay and product photography on Saturday.
On Sunday, Samantha at Samantha Shannon Photography led a workshop on goal setting using the Desire Map.
In between, we had two beautiful families travel out to the coast for styled family photo sessions. It was so fun to see how each photographer worked differently, and such a blast to shoot with our friends!
If you'd like to see an in depth recap of our retreat, Samantha has a full blog post on the experience on her blog here. If you're interested in learning more about our group or would like to join in on the next retreat, get in touch with us via our contact form! We love meeting other professional women photographers in our area!
