So, funny story. Kindred was born months ago via Instagram direct messaging when we were both discussing the desire we had to reach the group of moms out there who have DSLR cameras and wanted to know how to use them. "What if we did a workshop or offered classes", we asked. "What if we did this together?"
Well, why not? We literally set a phone date that night and never looked back. Throughout the process of planning and executing our first workshop we have confirmed our passion for combining photography and education into something that helps others.
It's our goal to provide hands-on workshops and direct instruction to our attendees, creating an encouraging environment to learn and a community of like-minded women.
I'm a native Tulsan, but after finding a hunky husband, we are putting down roots in the little town of Enid, OK. I spend most of my days playing with our toddler daughter, snuggling our two (huge) pups, and rockin' yoga pants and anything blush colored. When I started Hazel and Haze Photography four years ago, I had no idea how much joy I would experience through this business. I love creating beautiful images and capturing once in a lifetime memories, but even more so, I genuinely love each person that my business brings into my life. While I love capturing weddings and lifestyle portraits for others, I love teaching other moms and beginning photographers, which allows me to have an even greater impact on the photography industry and in our community. Kacey and I are so glad you found our Kindred Photography Workshop website and we hope you have enjoyed getting to know us both a little bit better and we hope you'll join us at the next Kindred Workshop!
I'm a small town Oklahoma girl living in the (biggish) city of Tulsa. I taught sixth grade English until I became a mom, which is when I rediscovered my passion for photography. Three kids and six years later, I find myself with a really fun, messy family and a thriving photography business. I couldn't be more thankful. I'm thirty-one years old and have more dreams at this point in my life than I've ever had before and I think that's pretty cool. I do a lot of everything and have always functioned best wearing lots of hats. I'm currently enjoying the wedding, interior, and commercial facets of my photography business, but you give me any subject and I'll shoot it until the sun goes down. I don't (and can't) do anything on my own- I've got an amazing husband and village surrounding me that makes work, life, family, and dreams possible. I believe in doing things together, which brings me to Kindred. My friend and fellow creative, Angela, shares my passion for education and photography and we've found an opportunity to do both by teaching moms and beginners how to use their DSLR cameras so they, too, can use photos as a means of documenting their family's everyday lives and preserving their legacy for generations to come. I love meeting people and building community. Please consider joining ours by attending a workshop.
