PFP Philly Workshop

I was lucky enough to attend the Pixel Fairy Princess Philly Workshop last weekend. I was very excited and very nervous to attend. We have a great camera that Dan knows how to use but I do not. I didn't even know the lingo....FStop, aperture, etc.....????? So, that morning as Debbie aka PFP talked I started to have palpitations. How was I going to keep up? Well with the help of the amazing Pixel Fairy Princess I did keep up and I learned something along the way. I had an amazing time with some old friends and I made some new friends too.

Kate was the one who introduced me to the Pixel fairy Princess blog. I am inspired by Kate's photography skills and wanted to learn more myself. So I decided to join her for the workshop. Lisa and Ivy brought some amazing "models" for us to shoot. I was so happy to finally met Heather. What a fun gal! It was also great to met Bobbie and Cheryl. We had a wonderful time together. I can't believe I didn't get any pictures of the photographers or the Pixel Fairy Princess. I was too overwhelmed trying to learn.

I am going to post the link to some of my favorites from the workshop on

I am trying to practice my skills so I took Katie out last week for a photo shoot. Here are my favorites from that session.

I took Bailey out today to get some pictures for Karen for Mother's Day. Of course it was cloudy and raining. Here are my favorites. I am trying to decide which ones to enlarge for Karen as a gift. Which one is your favorite?

I am have been slacking lately in the land of blog. I was spending WAY too much time on the computer and I needed to stop for alittle while. The last few months have been so busy around here. I am hoping to catch up on my blog soon. I have so much to blog but so little time!

Hi Jen,

The workshop was a blast....don't you wish we could do that once a month??

Your pictures are incredible....I am glad that you did not go back to sewing by the sea, because you have a great eye and obviously pick things up very quickly......I have really enjoyed seeing all your pictures pop up in Flickr and am so happy that you are having fun with your camera......Dan might have to go buy another camera if he ever wants to get behind the lens again:)

Happy Shooting!!


Ivy said...

Hi Jen,
Wow, you are doing so well with your processing! And might I add, composition, f stops, aperatures and presets! Isn't it fun to talk photog and now know what you are doing LOL. I had no idea what a preset was, let alone ever think that I could create one!

I just love all your photos! The new ones of Katie are beautiful and Bailey in the park just rock!

Well, can't wait to see more.



Felicia said...

Oh how wonderful. You are a pro. I'm taking one of her workshops next month...can't wait.

Ivy said...

Stopping by to say HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Have a great weekend:))
