Scarlett Lillian Workshop: Day 1

Wow.

Again, simply, wow. I miss my workshop girls. This past weekend was such a beautiful time getting to know the heart of 20 amazing women.

It's funny how when I made the announcement and launched my workshop, I got some hate emails. Naturally. Vicious horrible "mean girl" type of things from other photographers in this industry. All those fears ran through my mind "Maybe they are right, who am I to think I can host a workshop?"

But instead I chose to delete those emails and not respond because I remembered, I thought that those same things first starting out. "Who am I to think I can be a photographer?" And here I am three years later blessed with an amazing photography business!

I talked a lot about this in the workshop... overcoming adversity when the critics try to tear you down... not letting other people stop you from trying to live your dream... As I watched tears stream down the girls' faces in the room as I spoke, I knew, I wasn't alone. Though we all encounter obstacles in chasing our dreams, I wanted to create a workshop where women could come together to be each other's biggest cheerleaders. To tell each other, you were BORN for this. To celebrate how fabulous God made each and every one of us. To maximize each of our potential and stop getting in the way of ourselves. Because often I've found, it's ourselves who are our own worst critics.

So to kick off the first night, I held a Little Black Dress party full of great heels and cupcakes and feather boas. Women don't have enough excuses to dress up. I was so proud too of the women who shared that they never wear fancy dresses or heels, but just for this party, they decided to live it up and go buy something new for themselves.

As part of the party, I had a photobooth where all got together to be silly and embrace our fabulousness! I was excited to see how quickly the girls become new friends with each other. They are all BEAUTIFUL women from the inside out. Remember their faces, because they are about to rock the photography world and make some waves!



Here's some of my favorite pics!


And a cutesy slideshow!





More pictures of the photoshoots to come!! :-) Stay tuned! Also, after how much fun I had with this workshop, I definitely want to host another one in the future. If you want to be the first to be informed when I release dates for registration, scroll down to the bottom of my blog and sign up on my newsletter. Newsletter peeps will get the chance to sign up for the workshop first before it's released on the blog! :-)

did you teach your workshop "girls" to use copywritten music for their slideshows, too?

You make a great point. I don't ever use copywritten music in my clients slideshows, but didn't think it would be a big deal for this one. But I would rather be safe than sorry, so I've changed the song to one of my royalty free songs I previously downloaded from TripleScoopMusic.com. Thanks for looking out for me Copyright Police! :-)

You teaching is a huge step backwards for the teaching field in general. I can't believe people paid you money for this. And no, I'm not jealous. I'm appalled.

Jerralyn, what's so wrong with helping other people?

The negative comments make me laugh and feel sorry for the person writing them as they are apparently so miserable they have to spend the time to try and drag you down when the post has nothing to do with them. Kuddos to you Scarlett for not letting the man bring you down! And if you're so appalled commenter, why are you following her blog? :)

You are such a darling spirit! So uplifting and delightful. I admire your photos, but even more so I admire your faith. I hope to someday attend a Scarlett Lillian workshop. Don't mind the haters.

I'm pretty surprised at the level of animosity others have for you. I'm not a photographer, but I read your blog because I find you to be entertaining, and I do love your pictures. You know, my boss always tells me that people have a natural desire to help others, but I have found that once you reach a certain level in your professional life, some people have a natural desire to bring you down. You seem very strong in the way that you respond (or in some cases, don't respond) to the negativity, but I just felt compelled to give you a little positive feedback because I know how sometimes the negative tends to stick with us longer than the positive. Keep up the good work, and continue to help others in their quest for success - the karma that you will earn will come back to you 10-fold!

If these pictures are examples of what the instructor shot I have no idea what she was teaching people. These are terrible!
