Happy Mentor Monday! Today's recap is from my first session of 2016 💙
I visited Orlando in January at a really hard time for me personally (I talked a little about that here), so this was quite possibly one of the most difficult mentor sessions that I've ever had to do... I am SO thankful for this wonderful group that I worked with. Like I'm not sure how I can even express how thankful I am for them. Everyone was SO warm, so welcoming, so easy to work with, and we all had a blast learning and creating together!
While in Orlando, I worked with makeup artist Sarai who did a beautiful job on our model, (Pelu)'s, makeup! When I tell you everyone was awesome? Everyone was awesome! I think you can get a feel for how great this day was by taking a look at the pictures :)
What did the attendees think of the session? Hear from one directly on her DFinney Mentoring experience:
'I don’t think I can put into words how amazing my experience was. I am a newbie to photography and I was very nervous about how I would be received, but Danielle made me feel such at ease! The experience was a breath of fresh air and very eye-opening. Her teaching style is like nothing I’ve seen online, or would have been able to learn on my own. Under her guidance I was able to capture my BEST work!
Danielle your mentoring session has ignited the little flame I had in me and I am falling in love with the process all over again. I admire your talent and humility so much and I am grateful that we were able to cross paths during my journey. I cant wait to see everything else the Lord has in store for you Danni. I will forever have dfinneyphoto engraved in my heart."
Francesca! Thank you soo much. Working with you and Stacy was an absolute blessing. You both reminded me why I do this, and how thankful I am for such awesome mentees like you. Seeing your progress since the class has been amazing! And I can't wait to see how you grow even further on your photography journey ❤️
