Taking Details to the Next Level | AKP Jazzy Retreat | Northern Virginia Photographer

Back in March, I had the privilege to attend my fourth AKP Retreat. One of these days I’ll get the first three blogged, but for now I want to share a bit about my time in New Orleans with you. 

Each retreat that I have attended has been such an incredible experience, and all four have been so different from each other, that it’s impossible to pick a favorite. But this one, dubbed “AKP Jazzy”, spoke to me on so many levels. Maybe it was the content – we spent quite a bit of time learning how to elevate our detail shots, which is something I love to do. Maybe it was the size of the group – as the smallest retreat yet, we were all able to truly connect with each other on such a deep level, I left truly feeling like I had gained new sisters. Or perhaps it was because it was Ashton’s last retreat, and we all felt the need to really soak up every minute of each other, of the learning, of the experience as a whole, knowing that we probably would not get a chance to do this ever again.
