Never Comfortable

Finding Balance

9:30-10:00am

Coffee Break

Corbin has spent the better part of two decades traveling the world photographing weddings and for the past two years has done so with a toddler in tow. The struggle is real. And so are the feelings of insecurity and guilt. What does it mean when suddenly something else brings you great joy and it isn’t just weddings or work? We will have a real life heart to heart about what it means to want both… A beautifully prolific career and a meaningful home life outside of the wedding world. That means different things to all of us—time spent with a partner, exploring other career passions outside of photography, or simply looking for more of a balance to bring a sense of calm to your overall experience. We will talk about managing expectations, facing rejection when your path shifts, and building your work back up after big life changes such as parenthood, a move to a new market, or simply getting creatively “burnt out”. Total transparency!

Fear in Business, it’s What Holding you Back

2:30-3:15pm

How many of you know this feeling? You’re on the verge of launching a new product, a new workshop, a new business idea, and before you even begin your mind fills with thoughts of: Where do I start? Why would anyone listen to me? Is it going to be worth it? Am I going to be successful? And instead of listening to what’s on your heart, instead of doing what you know you’re meant to, you’ve allowed self doubt and fear to talk you out of even trying. For many of us it’s fear of rejection. Fear of judgement. Fear of the unknown. But, what if we could realize that our greatest accomplishments are on the other side of fear. What if we understood that by honouring our truth, and listening to what’s on our heart, we can create the life that we truly desire. None of us are immune to the ego based emotions and thoughts that fear instills in us however, we are in control of how we respond to those limiting beliefs. Through understanding and acknowledging them, we can create a stronger, more confident belief in ourselves allowing us to not only chase those big dreams, but to accomplish them and so much more. Join me as I give you permission to succeed and teach you how to work through your fears, honour your story and create the life, and business, you truly deserve

I want color and real life. Don’t think of this as an engagement session. Think of this as a Life Session. I want you to make mistakes and get things out of focus. I want you to shoot wide for at least 5 min of your allotted time. This means you may have to get in close. I want you to experiment. I want MOVEMENT. WE ARE GOING TO GET IN THE WATER WITH THE COUPLE. This is up to you if you want to do it. So bring clothes you’re okay getting wet. I will have two Fuji X100F underwater cameras with me so that you can shoot freely without fear of getting it wet. Bring your own SD cards. Or if you have a film underwater housing bring that.
