The Kindred Path
GATHER: TKP Community Workshop 2022
We can't even express how thankful we are for this wonderful community of family photographers, and how much it meant to be able to host an in-person workshop this year. Our founders, Adrianne and Marie, poured so much passion into making the day community-focused and relationship-forming.
We are so thankful to our speakers, Morgan Williams and Kara Powers, for sharing their knowledge and skill to thoughtfully walk our attendees through their appron-home sessions from start to finish.
And at the end of the day, this group of 19 women walked away with friends and supporters for what we hope is years to come. We could hardly wait to share the beautiful images and personal experiences from this day. Here's what our attendees had to say!
"The GATHER workshop was just what I needed - it included community, education, and hands-on photography experience. Meeting the community was definitely a highlight of the whole experience, and it's something I've been craving since starting my photography business in 2020 and learning through lots and lots of online courses and workshops, but never an in-person workshop. I was able to meet a group of incredibly talented and kind photographers who all taught me something that I can bring back home to continue growing as a business owner and an artist."

“For years I wanted to attend a workshop geared towards motherhood photography. When I heard about The GATHER Community workshop, I jumped on the chance to attend! I soaked up every aspect of the day, from what the speakers had to say to the styled shoots to being inspired by other talented women in the industry. It was reassuring to learn what things I was doing right in my business and gain new ideas to improve my business and offerings. Thank you for for your vision for this community of business women, and for inspiring me through the workshop day! It was a dream come true!”

"Attending the Gather Workshop this year truly reignited my passion for family photography in a new and beautiful form. It was a joy to connect and form friendships with so many lovely women whose talent truly inspires me! Adrianne and Marie were the best hosts and put together a workshop that met my expectations and then exceeded them with valuable education and perfectly curated styled sessions! Beyond that they are fantastic women who are hard workers, talented photographers, and so warm, welcoming, and friendly! I can't wait for next year!"

"What an incredible experience it was to be apart of The Kindred Path’s first Gather Workshop! There is something about being in a room full of others who share the same passion that fills my cup up more than I knew I needed. Adrianne and Marie are two women who truly believe in creating a space for community and growing within that. Having both Morgan and Kara as guest speakers share their stories and businesses with us was amazing and I learned so much from each of them! From the community of other photographers sharing their hearts and talents to photographing two beautiful families, it was a weekend I will never forget.”

“I've only been in the photography business officially for a year. I started looking for a learning experience that would help me with my business, but also provide connection with other photographers. The workshop exceeded any expectation I had going into it! Everyone was SO welcoming and willing to share. From learning from each of the speakers, to participating in sessions led by amazing photographers, and making connections with everyone, I left feeling excited and inspired! I had such an amazing experience and can't wait for the next workshop!”

“After taking a chance on myself to pursue photography full time this year, the GATHER workshop was my first opportunity to invest in myself. However, I got so much more than just a learning opportunity. This was a shared experience in learning, mentorship, sharing and collaborating ideas and resources all while doing what we do best, capturing two beautiful families with our cameras.
The topics of learning were very carefully selected and challenged me to think about my business in a new way. With a room full of creative photographers with varying experience I felt included and inspired. Looking forward to continuing the relationships with new friends and the next opportunity from The Kindred Path!”
