Kalaloch 2015

It was a dream come true. I cannot even believe how lucky I was to get to spend a weekend immersing myself in the beauty of the coast and photography bliss with nine other amazing women. We holed up in the quiet town of Kalaloch, nestled along a coastal stretch of the Olympic National Park. We shared friendship, knowledge, inspiration, encouragement and so much more. It’s hard to put into words. I am still in awe how this wonderful mix of women from different parts of the country and Canada came together so seamlessly.

This was the drama that met us when we arrived. We couldn’t have convened in a more gorgeous location.

We all came prepared to teach each other, share ideas and generally open ourselves up to trying new things, including fine art boudoir photography and freelensing. (By the way, if anyone has a lead, I am on the hunt for a cheap Nikon 50mmD to further my new-found love of freelensing.)

Abstract
It was an incredibly soul-filling weekend, so much more-so than I ever imagined. The laughter, kindness and connections we shared will forever be with me. Kate, a huge thank you to you and your family for opening up your home and hearts to all of us. Felicia, thank you for being the magic spark behind this amazing experience. Alice, Carrie, Catherine, Dana, Laura, Jana and Nicole, thank you for sharing so much of yourselves throughout the weekend. I’m so thankful to be able to call each of you my treasured friend.

Please head on over to Photography 2204 to hear and see more of our Kalaloch weekend from my lovely new Canadian friend Jana O’Flaherty.
