Exposed : A Photography Retreat for Women

Carli + Beau Uncategorized

Are you a photographer that is trying to navigate this crazy industry? Are you stuck at the fork in the road not sure which direction to take? With so many methods, ideas, and techniques out there it can be overwhelming and confusing as to what decisions you should make as a business owner. Guess what, I’ve been there. I have been in your exact same position, I have felt the struggles and pains of spreading myself so thin I could barely breath. Late nights, early mornings, working as hard as I could to get even an inch further to my goals. But over the course of these past 6 years I have learned so many things to help me better myself and my business.

Which is why I am so excited to announce the 2015  Exposed: A Photography Retreat for Women. I have teamed up with Michelle Peterson, (an incredible photographer and person) to bring you a workshop and retreat that will leave you feeling empowered to conquer the world. 

Come join us!

Michelle and I are inviting you to come to the retreat November 12-14, 2015. It will be two and a half days full of information, guest speakers, making new friends in the industry, and empowering yourself.

Michelle and I had been messaging each other for awhile about different things going on in both of our businesses and lives before the retreat came up. We realized how hard this business can be on us and somedays we need to be encouraged and told that not just our work, but that we were enough. 

At this retreat we are looking to inspire you to feel that way about your business and yourself while giving you tools to grow your business! We want you to come with questions and walk away confident with yourself and your abilities. This retreat is also to build up our community and to gain a friendship with one another! Like I said, this business can be emotionally draining and SO difficult at times. When you leave the retreat you will feel like you have a network of other photographers to look for when you need help, inspiration, and your own little set of cheerleaders!! 

If you are looking to gain new friends in the industry, step up your photography business, and gain a new and refreshed confidence in yourself, this is for you!

Remember all of that stuff I talked about earlier, those crossroads, and struggles we go through. Well I am going to let you in on a little secret, I still find myself there. Yupp thats right. This business and industry can be a huge roller coaster of triumphs and failures, sometimes even us who have been around for a few years now make mistakes, but we learn from those things and they make us stronger and better! Which is why I am so excited to not only be sharing with you the knowledge that I have gained over the last 6 years, but I am going to be learning and growing right along side you. I still have many days where my confidence is shaken, where I feel that I am just not good enough and never will be. Every day we have to wake up and jump over those emotional hurdles that keep us from being the people we know we can be. At The Exposed Retreat you are going to leave with a new found confidence that you never even knew was possible. 


Carli first picked up a camera in 2008 and instantly fell in love. She has been shooting professionally since 2009, and decided to turn to specializing in weddings in 2012. She has shot over 125 weddings since beginning her photography business. Her biggest strength is the connections she has with her clients. She loves to have a good time, and make people laugh. Carli loves to share her passion of photography with everyone around her. 

Michelle came into photography because it seemed like so much fun! It definitely has not been an easy road, but after finding her “direction” in photographing love and couples, it all seemed to come together perfectly. Michelle creates an experience with each of her clients that creates lasting friendships and a great connection. That connection is exactly why she continues to love what she does. Shel loves to make new friends and wants to create a connection with more photographers looking for their “right” direction. 

The Mountain Air Retreat is the perfect place to host this getaway! I recently taught a workshop and used the same facility! Check out the gorgeous images we were able to get, and the beautiful locations that are literally right in our backyard!
