Prepping + (Slightly) Panicking ~ Chicago Wedding Photography Workshop

I’ve been in prep mode for our workshop for quite a while now, but inevitably as the date nears I start to panic a bit! I keep telling myself it’ll be wonderful, and everybody will learn so much and it’ll all be okay – but right now it feels like I have so many balls in the air with prepping for it that I’m paranoid I’m going to drop them all!

We’re getting the styled shoot in order (which I’m SO excited about), booking a venue, organizing meals, packaging gifts, prepping the Power Point, and gathering all the notes I’ve been writing (from things that randomly pop in my head that I don’t want to forget to include in what I share with the attendees)!!

Needless to say – I feel like my brain is

I’m really hoping to start tackling more of a concrete to-do list this weekend, and stop feeling so much like I’m a chicken with my head cut off! haha

In the meantime, here’s the current state of my desk…. haha




I need this next week to creep by at a snail’s pace so I have time to tackle everything I need to… please! (And yet, at the same time, I’m SO excited for it just to get here that I can’t wait for next weekend to arrive!)

Have a fabulous weekend you guys! I plan to be up to my eyeballs in workshop prep! xoxo
