workshop recap- Waco, Tx (attendee images)

Waco was my first Magically Mundane workshop since 2019 because the two I had scheduled for 2020 didn’t happen… and that sure made it all the sweeter!  It was so wonderful to come together with six other amazing photographers from around the country, to be inspired and encouraged by one another. We all left with full hearts and new friends.

Thank you to our wonderful portfolio shoot models and their families, Gala Hemphill and Carolynn Siebert.

“The Magically Mundane workshop was such an absolute breath of fresh air! Alex’s demeanor is so calming and gentle–yet confident and stoic. For someone like me who comes into family sessions feeling like I need to be exuding an overly excited energy, Alex really taught me to slow down and open my eyes to what really is unfolding before me. And that’s when the MAGIC really happens. When we slow down, see, connect, and feel what is right in front of us, that’s when we can make any mundane moment truly magical.”

Over these last few years, the goodness and beauty Alex has shared online and with others has paralleled with my own journey into rest, simplicity, and a deeper sense of beauty in life. How Alex views the world is through the lens of love and wonder, especially for the most overlooked parts of motherhood. She gives voice and image to the moments that are so easily passed by. Alex’s Magically Mundane worksop is an extension and beautiful authentic representation of who Alex is and what she brings to life around her and out of others. Every discussion, every topic,  every shoot, every detail of the worksop was created and cultivated with intention. 

There are not many people in this world that make you feel at home within your own art and skill set, but Alex does in so many ways. This workshop gave me the permission and freedom to capture and offer the type of photography that moves my heart and brings life back to my work. I am forever grateful.

The workshop came at a time when I was wrestling with how to balance jumping back into my business while also continuing to serve my family well. Alex does both of these so incredibly well and makes it look effortless in the process. After learning her heart behind capturing families and motherhood, I was encouraged to photograph what I find beautiful rather than what I hoped would look beautiful in an Instagram grid. So Alex, thank you for helping me find my passion again for creating beautiful images!

Just got back from your #magicallymundaneworkshop with a grateful heart! It was not only a photography workshop, but a safe space where we were allowed to let go of our doubts and fears! Alex’s concepts of motherhood photography is so unique, and her calm and easy going approach of life and motherhood is evident in her work. That same serene and peaceful approach is felt throughout the entire workshop! This workshop was a game changer for my life business! It gave me the permission to be me, to run my business the way I want to run it, to let go of perfectionism, to just sit back, observe, be story teller, and to capture my future clients as they are.

Coming from a market where photography is go go go, this workshop opened my eyes to another side of photography I didn’t know existed. It gave me all the reassurance I needed! This workshop taught me that it’s okay to slow down, and that quality is better than quantity. Alex’s photographs have a special and effortless feel to them, and she made sure she shared all of her techniques and secrets to achieving emotion filled photographs. Alex made sure we were heard, felt, and seen! She was transparent, an open book, leaving no detail unnoticed! From the bottom of my heart, I just want to say thank you, and express my deepest gratitude to you! I will forever hold you and your workshop in my heart! Being a photographer for over a decade, you lit the fire back into my soul, and I can’t wait to apply everything I learned into my business, and LIFE!
