This industry can be a tough one, and often an overly competitive one. I am extremely lucky to be apart of a community that encourages collaboration and such inspiring support. I firmly believe that working together and highlighting each other’s unique strengths helps everyone grow and succeed.

For me, photographer pow wows, with wonderfully talented and inspirational artists, breathe life into me. There is such a unique magic in watching talented minds come together to capture a situation, and then compare how differently each artist sees the scene. The world is always a little different through each person’s eyes, and there is always something to learn from a new perspective.

Last week, I was fortunate enough to participate in one of these uplifting get togethers, and let me tell you, I had a such a blast with Cristy and Michelle. Cristy is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met, and such an incredibly talented and well-rounded photographer, serving the New Mexico and West Texas regions. While Michelle is a wonderfully fun and kind soul, as well as an amazingly skilled photographer who’s made it her mission to capture the beauty and love in all of her clients. They are such talented and fun women, and I’m so glad I was given the opportunity to work with them. So please enjoy some of the images from our fun shoot!
