Fearless Photoshoot Workshops
The incredibly talented duo of Hayam and Ashley Elizabth Photography co-teach photoshoot workshops together. Hayam does professional styling to help dancers work on poses that accentuate their natural beauty while Ashley Elizabeth works her magic behind the lens. My dear friend Aralia Pearl and I love to host their Fearless Photoshoot workshops once a year in western MA to bring this fun service to our local area. Take a look at some of the incredible photos from the last workshop in summer 2016!
