information & details

This is going to be intimate, fun, and your game changer. Are you ready? Are you ready for us to help you make your work radiate with powerful emotion and editing?

That is exactly what is going to happen while we hangout and shoot together in the amazingly beautiful Yosemite! Just us, you, and a few other girls diving into our creative hearts and revitalizing it.

If you’ve been feeling like there’s something missing from your work and you just need a little help reaching it, we’ve got you. 

If you’ve been aching for beautiful tones and colors in your images, we’ve got you. 

If you’ve been aching to capture moments with better composition or light, we’ve got you.  

If you’ve been aching to fall in love with your work, we’ve got you!

Come hang with us, shoot with us, edit with us, and laugh with us. We’re going to have styled shoots, you’ll get our presets and we’re going to edit with you one-on-one, answer any questions you’ve been wanting answered, and give you support even after it's all over. We can’t wait to build a friendship with you and watch you thrive!

So how will this work and what all does that include?

It includes your stay with us in beautiful Yosemite the nights of Nov 17th through 19th and all your meals/snacks and beverages. 

We will start this rad workshop off with a Welcome Dinner the night of the 17th. And then this is where we are doing things a little different, you will actually sign up to participate in the shoots on either the 18th or 19th. So five of you can sign up for the 18th, and five of you for the 19th. Meaning that on whichever day you chose, that will be the day you get to shoot with us (a sunrise and sunset shoot) and have your 1:1 time and help with editing.
The reason we are breaking it up like this is because its VERY important to us that you get the most out of these epic shoots, so we want to keep them small. Shooting with 4 others around gives you a lot more opportunity than shooting with 9 others around you and also allows you to see more of our actual workflow. So it’s very important to us to keep these shoots small! During the shoots on your non-participation day you can sleep in, relax, go photograph each other, explore, whatever you’d like!

We will have different discussions each day:
*Growing your business 
*Social Media and much more!

Okay babe! Want to know how to get in on this?

On Wednesday, May 22nd at 11am CST you will send an email to Kayla at Please include your name, business name, and the date you want to participate in shoots and 1:1’s (either Nov 18th or Nov 19th) in your email!

If you can only do one of those dates and not the other, include that as well. Because if you don’t specify we may need to change your participation date if the 5 spots for that day had already filled up

"And we slowly walked into a wilderness like no other, where we discovered the calling of our soul"

"Maple Photography felt like an extension of our family ... it was like hanging out with friends!"

"Their unique approach left me in tears ... they captured our true, messy, love-filled life!"

We can say that living colors and light-seeking inspired this workshop. We both embrace color and beauty in a different yet similar way. Stepping outside the normal is our goal. Capturing unique, raw, and magical storytelling is what moves us during every session. It is our ultimate desire that you too join the movement of being a storyteller that is NOT afraid to step outside of that silly comfort zone to finally embrace life and beauty through a unique and radiant perspective.
