Australia’s InspireMe Photography Workshop

inspireme2010

It’s official!

I have been so graciously asked to be one of three speakers/teachers at the InspireMe 2010 photography workshop in heavenly Australia!!! I will be down under for about 2 weeks for the 4 three-day classes about working with families – which is what this fall has been all about!  My goal for a family session has always been to capture not only slightly posed portraits, but also fun-loving candids showing the child’s playful nature and the love between each family member. My days for the workshop will get into how to guide a family session, processing, tips/tricks, and more.

What made my decision to go so easy (besides the obvious) was the other two brilliant photographers that will be teaching: the inspiring Ashley Skjaveland for newborns and  the rock star herself, Brianna Graham for kids.

ALL 4 workshops SOLD OUT in less than 12 hours, but I hear there is a waiting list.

Check out the great location for all the learning – And, thanks again Ainslie for inviting me to be apart of such a amazing thing. And I can’t wait to hug two of my best Aussie-girlfriends soon (K & A).

when climbing, jumping, running, throwing, laughing, hugging, playing is the only thing on your daily agenda. Life is sweet and you have love all around you. Ah, to be four. Big enough to do most things but still mama’s baby. Ah, to be four.

This sweet little man has been in front of my camera numerous times. It broke my heart that my car was full of gear when he asked to ride with me to all of our locations. Next time B, I promise.

Despite a bit of mushy ground from all the rain this October has given me, one of the fall fields has had many visitors. I get so much enjoyment watching kids out in it. They tend to want to stay there for the majority of the session. These kiddos confessed to mom & dad that they were having lots of fun. Ah, to me what photographing children is all about.

This little bean belongs to the eye behind the camera at Julie Jones Photography. I think it is safe to say that Julie  gave me a head’s up about a newborn session before she even became pregnant. I was immensely excited to her hear news almost a year later and even more so to travel down to her home this week in Ward, AR to photograph him. He better get used to having a camera on him at all times…

He is beautiful Julie -

He is beautiful.

These are beautiful images Raye.. great work.

did you miss the fun? Susan G Komen benefit

The 4th annual Raye Law Photography fall MINI Event was held this past weekend. Much of the proceeds will be going to Susan G Komen to help fight the war against breast cancer.  Even though the sessions were only 20 minutes, I think you can see fun was easily had by all.

Put this on your reminder for next year – typically the 3rd weekend in October.

Want a head’s up for any new events? Sign up as a fan on FACEBOOK! All of these images are loaded into album for you to tag yourself too!

And a special thanks to my mom for helping get the families to the all the locations. Love you!
