and here’s what a few former breaking the mold participants had to say when the workshop was done:

I am blessed to have found Breaking the Mold and the follow-up course, Continuing the Journey. I am so sad that they have ended, but am so grateful as I am forever changed. I have never been so excited or enthused about the journey that I am headed on, and for the first time I am questioning all of the external “noise” and slowing starting to trust myself and my art. I have been encouraged to “keep going” and to follow my instincts, which I have been afraid to do in the past. I got more out of this than I ever imagined and if I had to sum up my time in these courses, I would use words such as soulful, eye-opening, inspiring, thought-provoking and last but not least…definitely worth it. Thank you, Deb, from the bottom of my heart.

Deb’s workshops gave me the tools to look at my photography on a deeper level, getting right to the roots of who i am and who i want to be as a photographer. Deb answers questions and shares with a refreshing openness and honesty. The workshops are without a doubt substance over style, they are intelligent and authentic — qualities that i have not always found anywhere else. I was left feeling not only inspired but truly empowered!

I am sad that our time has come to an end in your new workshop ‘Breaking the Mold’. I have enjoyed it immensely.

We so often second-guess our instincts and I have learned lately that mine are very loud and rarely go away. It is funny too, I don’t often shy away from it, unless there is fear involved – fear of rejection, fear of not being validated, fear of moving forward, fear of dwelling too much on the past, fear of trying something new, fear of the competition. Your workshop has not only validated me, my strengths, my weaknesses, but it also brought my journey to a whole other level. I hope that I will continue to adapt and transform and ask myself all the questions you asked of us in your workshop. It was fast moving, made me reflect and helped me see things way more clearly. That is a gift.

There are very few people in my life who have truly given me inspiration, made me want to move forward and try something new. But you sure have! You have allowed me to let loose and share in a comfortable and giving environment. You were warm, generous and giving!!! I so appreciated all your candor. In our short two weeks, you have definitely given me confidence, helped me make sense of the issues and doubts I have been feeling for awhile and made me want to be a better me, for my clients and for my family and friends. Everyone needs that someone to get you “unstuck”. Your words, your exercises for us, and your explanation of your own photography has heightened my love and passion for photography so much more than I ever thought possible.

i’m so sad that our workshop is over, but i just wanted to take a minute to send you a quick note. this was the very first workshop i have ever taken, i had no real expectations. i can tell you that the last three weeks were unlike anything i thought i would experience in a photography workshop… it was almost like therapy for me, really! i am self taught, and have struggled with the mentality that i’m not up to par because i don’t have the piece of paper to prove that i deserve to be here. i finally think i’m starting to see that i don’t need to be technically perfect to be great at what i do. really, i could ramble on forever but i really just wanted to say thank you! thank you for helping me believe in myself, for bringing so much passion and inspiration to me in a short time and thank you for taking the time to teach us all and for being you!! i have never really surrounded myself with a group of my peers, it’s been an amazing ride.
– LILA

I can’t thank you enough for your amazing workshop. It went above and beyond anything I had ever expected. I came into the workshop hoping to learn more about photography, I never dreamed of the personal journey it would take me on or the growth I would have. I have come away appreciating my vision as an artist and not worrying about others. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so open and honest. I have grown leaps and bounds and look forward to continuing to grow even more.
STEPHANIE

over the years

January 3, 2014

yep, i know.  i haven’t blogged in forever, with the exception of my recent 30-day photo project.  i have lots of excuses, most of which i will spare you from; however, i will say that it’s partly because i didn’t know where to start (still don’t) — so i then am paralyzed and don’t write anything.  yes, that’s logical thinking for you.  but i decided today that i just needed to write for the simple reason that i’m inspired to share.  eventually i will figure out a way to catch up and share news from this past year, but for now it’s this…

after seeing today’s post on my modern met and thinking gol, i wish i had done something like that with my own family — i decided to go on a hunt for my family’s photos over the past years.

2005-2013.
three states.
so many memories.
treasured photographs.

makes my heart happy gathering all the photographs and i dream of one day compiling them into a book to share with my kids.  one thing is for certain…you can never have enough family photographs.  and with steve leaving for japan soon and kiele heading to college later this year, i have a deep aching for LOTS and LOTS of family photographs…
our complete family.
all of us
TOGETHER.

thank you to all who have photographed a special part of my family.  i could never thank you enough.  and if that wasn’t enough to encourage you to have your own family photographed regularly, you should read THIS.

and with that said and shared, i wish you a very happy new year — filled with love, laughter, adventure and everything wonderful.  signing off now before i change my mind.  xxo
