This week-end, a few of us photography peeps spent two gloriously relaxing days together. Ahhhh… it was amazing.
My friend Amy and I were the first to arrive. We were like kids in a candy store, running from room to room and checking out the place. We lit a fire in the potbelly stove, set out chocolates and snacks and waited for the others to arrive.
The next morning, we actually slept in! It was so amazing waking up at 10 a.m. It felt like 2:00 p.m. Our friend Hope planned a day of activities for all of us. She gave us a list of words to capture through photography. Here are a few I took on our scavenger hunt.
“Shimmer” (although the next morning once the sun came out there was much more shimmer around us)
“Fantastic” (yes you are my friend)
I have to tell you, taking these pictures was one of the most relaxing experiences I have ever had in my life. It’s a memory I will always treasure, and that’s why I chose this picture for “Treasure”.
and a few more…
I think this one should be called “Cat on a Stick”
We returned back to the chalet from our scavenger hunt to homemade chicken stew (thanks Hope) and then a celebratory cocktail.
The next day, Hope had another little fun tidbit planned. On a piece of paper, we were to write a descriptive word about each person there. We shot each person holding their paper, but the only person that was allowed to see the word was the person taking the picture.
This will be the first time each beautiful girl is seeing the word I used to describe them (I can’t wait to see every one’s words). Thanks so much for a wonderful week-end. Love you girls!

That was officially the longest blog post ever! Thanks girls for a fantastic get away. I had an incredible and unforgettable week-end with you all (although we sure missed those girls who could not make it out). I can’t wait for the next one. 🙂
