Rising Tide - NH

For the month of June, each Rising Tide Society chapter was tasked with collaborating on a styled shoot together. Our little Hanover group poured into the idea with a very classic New England themed shoot - complete with delicious lobster, a beautiful historic inn, strawberry shortcake, gorgeous red and white blooms and more! Not only was the shoot beautiful but it was inspirational. Each creative there was able to showcase their talents and work together to build a beautiful scene which was motivational and a great learning experience. Our group may be small but it is full of great talent, kindness and true New England grit.

Ashley Largesse Workshop

Edson Hill, Stowe - Vermont | theWorkshop with Ashley Largesse

All I can say is wow. This day, this workshop, it was a game-changer. I nervously walked around talking to and meeting the insanely talented photographers who were also attending this event and the nervousness disappeared. The room was full of warmth and you could tell everyone was just as uneasy as I felt. Ashley created an atmosphere that radiated with love and confidence in everyone there and it was truly contagious. We spent the day learning great business tips and photography tips before participating in the most beautiful styled shoot. I couldn't be more grateful to Ashley for putting on such a beautiful workshop and for taking the time to invest in each one of us!
