Getting Ready for Camp Shutter Sisters!

I'm so excited to be heading down to Monterey this weekend to take part in Camp Shutter Sisters! I can't believe that it is finally here!
My journey to camp, started in March of this year when I fortunately stumbled upon a post about this amazing opportunity. I marked my calendar for registration day and signed up as soon as the site was open. I was so surprised to learn that registration sold out in a matter of minutes and that I was one of the lucky ones who got in.
As the reality of camp began to sink in, I realized that I would be spending 3 glorious nights and four fun filled days with women who love photography as much as I do! Imagine spending your days focusing on what you love! It truly feels like a gift.
The past few months have been filled with opportunities for connecting with fellow campers. From Facebook group pages, to meeting fellow campers at Blogher, sisterly bonds have been forming. I can't wait to continue to nurture these budding friendships and to meet more of these amazing women in person. I feel like a little kid anticipating Christmas.
So next week, I'll be busy clicking (and clacking around the camp fire) and I'll be sure to share the highlights with you when I return!
For those of you who are not familiar with Shutter Sisters, I encourage you to visit their site. It is a place to be inspired, embraced and united with women who share your photography passion.
