I recently took a day trip to Kansas City to see the amazing Helene Dujardin.



This was the calm above the storm.  It was drizzly and dreary under those clouds.

She was offering a photography class and I happened to be in need of one.  She recently put out a book called Plate to Pixel.  Its beautiful.  And full of awesome information!


She offered up amazing tips and insights and I was so, so happy I went.


Helene asked us to bring some food to set up for mini photoshoots.  This little setup was done by the gorgeous Bree from bakedbree.com.

I didnt bring any food on the plane with me.  So I just walked around and took pictures of other peoples stuff.  Ya know, the people that actually followed directions.

Then I would eat some too. 😉

It was a great day!  I had so much fun.

It was wonderful to see a professional in action… I just hope she rubbed off on me a little!

Thanks Helene!

And thank you to all the beautiful and funny and charming ladies who also attended!

Share with your friends!
