Celebrating These Photographers in Puglia
One of the greatest joys that happened to me in 2018 was a week I spent with these beautiful souls at the stunning Masseria Potenti in Puglia.
This workshop was like no other photography workshop that we have created, as I wrapped two passions into one, coaching and photography.
Wow, even I was surprised!! Boy, did it unleash new-found confidence and joy in this talented collective of women and incredible insights into embracing a bigger creative dream.
Maria Grazia, Chiara, and the staff at Masseria Potenti nurtured and inspired us with an authentic Puglian experience in food, wine, design, and hospitality and when it came time to go home, none of us wanted to!!! Who would want to leave their hand-embroidered linen sheets behind…
Athalee Brown took care of every detail and photographer Loc Boyle shared his vast knowledge, kindness, and patience when it comes to all things photography.

So this post is to celebrate these women (and the ones that photography is missing here) to show you what happens when you dare to push open a door to creativity, yourself and do something you love.
How within each of us lies creativity and talent and even if it has been dormant for a lifetime, it’s waiting there for a breath of oxygen to ignite it, and when you ignite it and blow on it a little bit, sometimes it can become a raging fire of passion, as joyous and wonderful as falling in love.
Go check out their Instagram feeds and stunning work.
A huge thanks to these gals for one of the most beautiful weeks of my life, for allowing me to share their work and to the new friendships that will stay with us for a lifetime.
Love and hugs,
