Newborn Photographer l Dream Workshop in 10 Days!!!
This is Carrie Sandoval, genius behind “Baby As Art“. She is my mentor. Seeing her images inspires me. I have always loved photography. It was always the landscapes that got to me. I know crazy, right. But landscapes touched me deep down in a spiritual place. They moved me. And while I have always loved all types of art (growing up in Europe can do that to a person), portraits were portraits. And then I became exposed to Carries portraits. I don’t even remember how. All I know is that they brought me to tears. I don’t mean to get all religious, but like landscapes, they made me feel overwhelmed with gratitude for a Heavenly Father who gives us such beautiful and miraculous gifts. Anne Geddes is great, but I never really “felt” her work. She was all about using the babies as props. Disguising her babies as something else. Carrie is the opposite. Every photograph she takes is a celebration of that babies existence. I love her. I would have flown across the world to have her photograph my babies if only I had know about her then.
Photographers are constantly on a quest for education and inspiration. When I was choosing which workshop I would attend this year to better myself it was a no brainer. I have wanted to meet Carrie and learn from her since I picked up my camera with an eye focused on newborns. If I wanted to be the best then I needed to be trained by the best. And she is undeniably the BEST! I am so excited. 10 days from now I will be basking in the warmth of Southern California and learning at the hands of a master and my personal mentor!
I am so excited to come home from her workshop filled with new skills and inspiration. I know it sounds so cliche. But it is going to be a dream come true!
