KINDRED OKC

Marked by a beautiful venue and a fun afternoon of learning, Kindred OKC was a huge success. Mamas from all over the state came together to learn manual mode, get lots of hands-on practice with their cameras, and to connect with old and new friends. 

Kindred was hosted by Holloway House OKC which provided the perfect atmosphere and natural light for learning manual mode. They say location is everything, and really, it was so exciting to have such a peaceful, light-filled learning environment!

Meet Cortney! In order to pull everything together and give attendees a really great experience, we rely on an expert to help.  Kindred OKC was simply and lovingly styled by Cortney of Linen & Rust with florals provided by The Wild Mother and items by West Elm Tulsa.

Because we know the value of time and investment, we love to spoil our attendees. We gathered lots of yummy loot for our attendees who took some time for themselves by registering for Kindred to experience something fresh and learn new skills. 

Kindred OKC attendees were provided with Kindred Workshop manuals, hand-written name plates by Leyco Lettering, and swag by Cottage Hill Magazine and Milo & Lily Boutique. And then there were giveaways! The giveaways for this workshop were amazing! A HUGE thanks to Bisby Candles and Coffee and Crumbs Blog for giveaway merchandise!

One of the most important aspects of Kindred Photography Workshop is the hands-on practice and one-on-one time each attendee spends with a professional photographer. During last segment of the workshop attendees were grouped with our featured photographers and practiced their new knowledge.  Attendees were able to move around and snap pictures within vignettes of some of the cutest little subjects around.  This kind of practice is highly valuable because it gives each attendee a chance to practice making adjustments, play with the composition of their photographs- all within the reach of someone who can help.

I am still on a high from the OKC workshop. I don’t think there’s anything you could do that would’ve made it better. I want to do it again!

The most rewarding aspect of the workshop for us is the education and experience we give our attendees.  Nothing is more affirming than hearing the things attendees had to say as they headed home. Things like, "This was so helpful and so worth it" and "I can't believe the pictures I'm taking now". Wow. Day made!

We truly want to help women be able to use their cameras to document the big and small moments in their families' lives, preserving moments forever.

We are thrilled to announce our next stops: Tulsa, OK and Dallas, TX. Get on the list here and register for the workshop here beginning October 1st.
