Fotografía de maternidad y bebé * The creativeLive experience

Usually my blogposts are written in spanish and then sometimes I share an english translation, but today I feel like writing in english, that is how all this amazing experience is forever engraved in my memory. 

About a month ago I saw that creativeLive was offering a new course with famous photographers Sue Bryce and Kelly Brown. I've been following creativeLive for some years now and trying to apply all what I've learned there to my craft or my business, but the first time I felt one course was perfect for my business and needs was this one so I decided to apply to be in the audience in Seattle.

I can't begin to tell you the excitement I felt when I read this message telling me I was indeed selected. I don't know if I fully believed I've been living this experience the whole time. It's been like a dream. A happy happy dream.

Maybe you all can begin to understand if I tell you that I greatly admire the work Sue Bryce does not only as a photographer but as a teacher and almost as an activist for women's self respect and love, and Kelly Brown's work speaks directly to my heart, since she specializes in what I've been trying to specialize for so long. All my life I've felt as if I can deeply understand and care for all the babies I have  close. Being able to learn from both of them, in person, in the cL studio has been really a dream come true.

And I wasn't disappointed, I have to start by sharing that I found Seattle a beautiful city that behaved fabulously and gifted us with a rain free, sunny sky weekend. I had the most amazing time in the market and walking around the city downtown and my cute raincoat stayed in the hotel room the whole time. Yay!!!!!   If you've watched any of the creativeLive shows before, probably you've noticed how family-like vibe they showcase, and let me tell you, that is the feeling you really get when in the studio, all this smiley people behave like a big family in there. And you can see how everyone is working hard to get the show up and running which I may say is a lot harder and complicated than we get to realize on the other side of the screen while sitting in front of our computer. Thank you Lacee, Kenna, Susan and all of the staff for this amazing experience, hope I knew everyone's name to address each for the wonderful work you did.

I definitely learned A LOT, I got lots of information, ideas and aha moments that I'm sure will benefit me and my business in the days to come but if I have to pinpoint what was the best part of all, I have to say it was getting to know and share this experience with 8 other amazing women and photographers. Each one in different stages of their journey in this beautiful job we've chosen, but all thriving, and open and wanting to learn, share and follow their dream. We now share a common path, following all the ideas and information we received and I'm sure each and every one of us will reach whatever goal we dare to set. I'm so happy I met these amazing colleagues and now friends.

Throughout the journey I made some videos and photos, not many I may say, probably was more into living the moment than registering it. Most are done with my phone (sorry), but I want to share with you the little video I made with this, and maybe you'll get how fun, and intense these past weekend was.  Thanks to all of you that have followed my path becoming a photographer and to all of the new friends now follow me in various social media pages, I'm happy to share the passion I feel for my work with you all.

But first don't forget to visit my new friends pages and leave them some love:
