i love books and history. fascinated by both. especially when they mix together. the great gatsby is in my top ten of genius novels. the roaring 20′s: one of my favorites to study. i think i would have made a great flapper…it actually didn’t surprise me when katrina came over to discuss final workshop plans that she left with a bag-full of my clothes to use on the models; i am so magnetized to 20′s styles and fashion!! when we shot my niece at this location for her alter ego shoot we were inspired to come back and shoot a gatsby-esque couple and group of friends! it was the perfect set of shoots for the last kamee june workshop.
i love the energy that comes with a workshop or side kick day. it’s more than excitement. it’s giddiness to learn and to create something you never knew was possible. i could bathe myself in it, i love it so much!! it’s such a good feeling to be surrounded by creatives who are passionate about the preservation of time! i am so appreciative of everyone who worked to make it happen and also everyone who was a participant. i enjoyed our day, wholeheartedly!!
i feel filled when it’s over. grateful for everything that happened; excited to see what we created; inspired by the new community we developed!
as always there is a list of thank you’s that must be sent:
