The location is in the middle of nowhere on my half Italian in-laws Farm! Copemish MI 30 minutes outside Traverse City MI.
If you need to stay the night I have a hotel discount at Great Wolf Lodge or you can camp on the farm. the exact address will be giving after photographer is accepted.

Due to the intimate nature, only 5 Photographers will be accepted
fee $500 for all day styled editorial shoot with Laura Kirkpatrick 12 looks total and lunch

1:00 hour Spaghetti and Italian wine lunch will be provided! by my Italian father-in-law and the meat will be from Laura Kirkpatrick’s farm “Ky Darling meats” (free ranged antibiotic, hormone free meat). Please let me know if your vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free.

I will be sitting up at multiple “sets” around the farm
1. Old fashion gated garden
2. Old Italian winemaking set
3. Picnic area
4. Dinner table and classic blue and white china
5. Hen house egg collection
6. Golden field
7. bonus location: Mystic pine forest

How it works..

There will is 6 locations on the farm with 1 bonus location. each location set will have 2 wardrobe changes. 1 wardrobe change all 5 photographers will shoot together and I have never had a problem with this. Then each photographer will pick/be assigned one location set that only they shoot the second wardrobe change. That way each photographer has a whole shoot that is just for them. So that’s 5 photographers and 6/7 locations. each location will be 1 group shoot and then everyone will have their own individual looks to shoot over the chose of the day. The 7th location will be sunset and everyone will shoot together and will be blocked off as the longest shot because of the golden hour is so amazing everyone should get a chance.

If ALL photographer wants to group shoot\all the looks together and everyone agrees together then everyone will shoot all 12 looks. if not everyone will have 8 looks to shoot.

I will be pulling 12 amazing wardrobe changes very stylized, romantic, bold looks. I’m super excited and look forward to put this together for 5 lucky photographers. I always enjoy meeting new photographers and telling them all about my experience on “Americas Next Top Model”, talk social media, fashion and more with you! This particular workshop is very dear to me for it also includes my family. If you follow me on Instagram you see me with my daughter and Fiancé are some of my highest likes and engagement on my social media. So there will be 2 looks: one with my Fiancé and one with my daughter. see inspiration. This may be the only time I allow my family to be shot at a workshop making this workshop super special and why photographer will be reviewed even more intensely before accepting.
