CreativeLive | What We Learned

More than 30,000 people from all over the world tuned in LIVE to “The Creative Newborn Photography Studio” with Julia Kelleher (you can purchase the course here). From Seattle to Bend to Israel, New Zealand, India, Paris and Australia, photographers devoted three days to watch and learn Julia’s award-winning photography style with babies and families. That is incredible, unbelievable, mind-blowing and humbling beyond definition.

It’s nearly impossible to tell you about everything we learned about you, about ourselves and about CreativeLive (the coolest organization on the planet!), so we’re going to sum it up here as best we can through the iPhone pictures our team took along the way. We’ll be thinking about this experience for the rest of our lives!

We will post final images from all of the sessions Julia photographed during CreativeLive as soon as they’re edited, stay tuned!

A very special thank you to the CreativeLive team! You run a rocking, professional, kick-butt operation with hearts full of passion and power.  We particularly want to thank Kathy and Lacee, Julia’s content and line producers, as these ladies worked round the clock to make sure all went smoothly. They supported us, cheer-leaded us and are just all around fabulous women! We can’t wait to come back!

So scroll through these pics, enjoy some behind-the-scenes, and then share in the comments with us–WHAT WAS YOUR GREATEST TAKEAWAY FROM THE COURSE?

Favorite #JuliaLive quotes from around the web:

“Being creative is a journey, not a result.”

“Good artists copy. Great artists steal. By Pablo Picasso”

“The box has way more possibilities than a train toy.”

Magical moment. Tears and silence in the studio throughout much of the concept shoot.
