It’s easy for me to say that whichever tour appears next on the calendar is the one I’m “most looking forward to.” After all, it’s the here and now. (Not to mention a good way to get students excited about an upcoming workshop.)
But truly and honestly, from the bottom of my heart, I’m anticipating this summer’s Creative Edge Kids Tour more than any previous one. And the reason is simple, my family.
In the past while I was away, my family was only able to join me two a time, never all together at once… Until now! My entire family—two daughters, two sons, and husband—will be joining me on the road for what is sure to be complete chaos and endless laughter.”
As many of you know, I love coming up with a theme for each tour. For the Power of Passion, it was prank wars between my bus and Jerry’s. For the DSLR Video Workshop, it was the whole wild, wild west “If It Moves, Shoot It” cowboy theme.
Because I’ll be joined by my family during Creative Edge Kids—hopping from city to city caravan-style—we’ve decided to go with the Gypsy theme. This idea may very well cause all of us to lose our sanity, but it is sure to be an experience of a lifetime.
A big part of our gypsy-family vacation will be sight-seeing at many of the incredible stops we have scheduled for the tour. In the past we’ve been blessed with the opportunity to travel all around the world, but it’ll be so much fun seeing all the amazing places there are right here in our own backyard.
So far we’ve made it out of the beautiful state of Colorado and into New Mexico as we make our way to Phoenix for tomorrow night’s seminar.
Of course, I’m excited for more than just vacationing with my family. I CANNOT wait to get back to teaching my favorite photography subjects: babies, toddlers and young children! Though I’ve had a blast stepping outside my comfort zone this year, dabbling in weddings, boudoir and video, it’s going to an absolute joy returning to what I know best.
The crew and I have been working very hard the past few months in order to provide attendees a truly rewarding and useful seminar experience, and we can’t wait to share it with you!
