Arkansas Photographer Maggie Hendrix : The Workshop

This past Saturday, I held my third photography workshop!  I had 16 AMAZING women in attendance and we had so much fun together!  I am so blessed to be able to do what I love for a living and it is just icing on the cake to be able to share some of my knowledge with others who are interested in taking their personal photography to another level.  An added bonus to this workshop was that my great friend and fellow photographer, Cheryl Weaver,  joined us for the day!  She did an excellent job of summing up what my workshop is about, on her blog.  Please visit and give her some blog love!  Here are some fun shots of my models in action.  Elizabeth and Evelyn WORKED IT for the ladies!  It sure helps when you are learning, to have subjects that make it easy!

This stunning shot of Elizabeth was taken by Celeste, one of my students at the workshop!  She was kind enough

to give me her memory card to share with the ladies at the workshop for critique.  It was so gorgeous, that I just

had to use it to show the ladies my editing process in Photoshop!  Beautiful job Celeste!

Arkansas Baby Photographer Maggie Hendrix

I got to do little “P”s  6 month pictures yesterday and it never ceases to amaze me how quickly these little boogers grow and change!  My journey with P and his momma began in October of 2008 when his momma called me up to do a Just Because session for her.   Her focus for her shoot was to have pictures before she got pregnant so that she could capture that time in her life before children and give her husband some gorgeous pictures for Christmas gifts.  Here is the link to her session.  Fast forward 10 months and little Mr. P arrives on the scene!  If you recall, I did his newborn pictures back in October as well.  I love when I get to develop a relationship with my clients that becomes a friendship.  I look forward to watching P grow up and capturing those important milestones in his life!  Keep a watch out because P will be back here on the blog in just a few more months!
