From Michelle Boyd...As a film photographer, I have had the opportunity to learn from countless others at workshops and one-on-one mentorships throughout my career. Teaching has always been a huge love of mine, and every time I've hosted a workshop it's been a highlight of my year. The Living Room Workshop was created out of my love for hospitality - I wanted to create an intimate setting for our four attendees to learn in a relaxed environment... In my own home! With all we discussed concerning running a film photography business, it only makes sense that we would practice the techniques we discussed. It's for that reason that we put together the most beautiful shoot I've ever had the pleasure of photographing! I've learned the most by watching others, and being able to demonstrate for our attendees, talking through my process and approach, and then see them take my direction and soar for their own artistry was thrilling! I was so blessed to have Melanie, of Mayhar Design, envision, create, and execute this amazing shoot for us, and can't thank our vendors enough for coming along to make this vision come to life!

From Melanie of Mayhar Design...When Michelle called to see if I would be interested in designing a photo shoot for her workshop attendees, I immediately jumped on board! Knowing her love for all things elegant, I was thrilled at the opportunity to design and create something that was classic and timeless, with hopefully, a few unexpected elements. We decided on a romantic garden style that would play upon all shades of mints and greens. Barr Mansion, with its rich landscape, was a perfect fit, and the rest took off from there. From Whim Hospitality's classically stunning furnishings to Sprout's overflowing garden blooms and Guten Co.'s clean and crisp invitation design, we hoped to create a seamless blend of abundant beauty against an aesthetic of understated, graceful simplicity. I cannot speak enough to the talent and generosity of each vendor that shared their time and creativity on this project. This team was amazing and it was such a joy to work hand in hand with each and every person to see it come together!
