Back in April I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Bali and photograph an event for the Beautiful You Coaching Academy, as well as a number of branding shoots for their coaches and trainees. It was an unbelievable experience; both exciting and challenging working in a new (overseas!) location that I was not familiar with. A photographer’s dream come true.
In November I was given another opportunity to photograph a Beautiful You event overseas, this time in San Francisco. Again I photographed branding sessions for a number of the coaches and trainees that attended, mostly from Australia but many other countries around the world also. And again, I had many ‘pinch-me’ moments! I was there for 7 days and worked for six of them, but I couldn’t have asked for a more fun week away – when you love what you do, it doesn’t feel like work.
The San Fransisco event had a fantastic line up of speakers including Travis Barton, Christine Rose Elle, Rachel Gadiel, Amy Mackenzie, Madison Hedlund, plus of course the CEO and founder of Beautiful You Julie Parker. Though I’m not a coach, I always feel immensely lucky that I get to listen in on their talks while I’m capturing the day from behind the lens. There’s a very good reason why they’re called Inspiration Days.
BYCA days are always jam-packed with love, joy, and lots of fun, and San Francisco was no different. The images below will give you a bit of a visual insight into how they roll – which is with lots of smiles, hugs and laughter, great conversations, pretty details, and plenty of selfies! 🙂
