Workshop with Elena Shumilova Photography

If you aren't familiar with the name Elena Shumilova Photography, you have likely seen her beautiful work, it's been featured internationally and even had a segment on the Today Show.  Her work is stunning, true fine art portraiture of a simplistic childhood that we would all love our children to have.   I was privileged and honored to attend a workshop that she held in Northern Virginia in the early fall.  It was a truly amazing experience, I learned so much and Elena was so kind and sweet and generous with her knowledge.   I arrived each day armed with a basket of between 3-4 lab puppies, generously loaned by a good client of my husband's veterinary practice, YBR farm, my daughter, camera, a variety of lenses and my walking shoes (actually flip flops, and it was pointed out to me that I repeatedly stood, sat or laid in horse poo each day and I was ok with that :D ).
