These are the reviews and incredible images from my amazing Beach Baby Workshop students! I am so honored and grateful to have had the pleasure of mentoring each and every one of these inspirational ladies! <3 Since we returned from the Beach Babies Workshop in January, the work of these incredible ladies has been featured on: Beyond the Wanderlust, Rock the Shot, Mozi Magazine, Child Photo Competition, Evoking you, The Imaginarium, Young Fashion kids Magazine!! I could not be more proud of my fabulous students!!
I recommend this workshop a thousand times over. I wish that I had taken it so sooo long ago. If you are a newbie and are not quite comfortable shooting in manual. TAKE THIS WORKSHOP!! If you have trouble nailing your skin tones, take this workshop! If you have trouble nailing your focus, take this workshop! If you are lost in the business end of things, take this workshop! If you just need a moment to live your passion and spend it with peeps that share the shame passions, take this workshop! If you just need a little encouragement or inspiration, take this workshop! If you have trouble with PS, both beginners and advanced, take this workshop! It is a guaranteed life changer. Katie’s passion, her knowledge, her talent, her tenacity, her kindness, her spunk, her constant support, and her willingness and excitement to share it all is a complete blessing to the world of portrait photography. Katie is one of the greats in this industry, she is a master of her art, and she is a true mentor. I am blessed to have her, Christine, and the other students in my world. Our new little family, if you will.
I had no idea upon signing up for Katie’s Beach Babies workshop how much I would learn and what an impact it would have on me in just one day. The experience was priceless! Such an unbelievably warm and beautiful person, Katie made us all feel so comfortable. She is also an amazing teacher and shared anything and everything with us…from all things photography to showing us her whole editing process. Even after the workshop, she actively answered our many questions and requests for an opinion. Katie’s wife, Christine, is also an amazing woman and such a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the business side. It was so eye opening and such valuable information. Together, they are such a powerful team. Working with our little models was also such a treat…really spoiled me! I also feel so blessed to have met and formed relationships with the other amazing photographers who came out. I look forward to keeping in touch and continuing to support one another. I feel so empowered and I’m so excited to use these skills and continue to grow. Thank you so much for everything Katie and Christine!!

I am not sure how I came across Katie’s FB page, but I remember gasping when I saw her work. Her images were so naturally beautiful and styled to perfection. After months of watching (okay stalking) her work, I saw she was having a workshop and I immediately jumped on the opportunity to learn from her. What I thought far exceeded what I got out of her workshop. Her goal for us was to get that “Ah ha” moment and you definitely get that. Along with her knowledge of all things photography, she has such a great personality and a warmth about her. She truly makes you feel like she wants you to walk away better than you came. Her wife Christine’s knowledge of the business blew my mind. I needed to hear everything she told us and I am pumped to work on my business structure. From the little models we photographed, to the other women that attended alongside of me, I can say this workshop was phenomenal. Thank you Katie and Christine. You ladies ROCK!
I first discovered Katie Andelman’s photography page from my brother, who had a college course with Katie. He recommended her page to me and I have been in lover with her photos ever since. I had the privilege of attending the Beach Babies Workshop hosted by Katie Andelman Garner in West Palm Beach, Florida. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Katie is such a bubbly and warm person and was genuinely interested in giving each of the aspiring photographers as much guidance and information as possible. She explained things in ways that have never made sense to me before in regards to business aspects and technique. I gained so much more than knowledge and confidence from this workshop. I feel that I am truly part of a wonderful community of supportive and creative people. Even though the workshop is over, Katie has still kept in touch with each of us and given us so many pointers and tips regarding our images and any other questions we pile on her! The webinar she held after the workshop was insanely helpful. I had no idea how the heck to use certain tools in photoshop, let alone what they even were! I feel like a million light bulbs turned on after the workshop and webinar. So incredibly helpful and fun. Katie does such a great job of making sure each of us feel confident and understand anything we’re confused about. The workshop was seriously such a life changing experience. Huge thank you to Katie, as well as her wife, Christine! Such beautiful and inspiring women and I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to meet and learn from them.

Ever since I saw Katie’s work for the first time, I fell in love with her photos. They had that “secret ingredient” that made you feel connected with the image, as if u were part of it. I’ve always been mesmerized by her amazing photography. When I found out about the Beach Babies workshop in Florida, I was over the moon excited. I knew this was what I wanted, my opportunity to learn from one of my favorite photographers out there, and be able to bring my photography to a higher level. I wanted to be the best me I could be. All I can say after having attended the workshop is WOW. What an amazing experience! This was my first workshop I’ve taken and I can’t even deal with how inspired and motivated I am! Katie is as sweet as she is talented, and her wife Christine is very smart. They make an amazing team! I loved how attentive Katie was, always making sure each and every one of us got the idea and checking we were doing it right. Even now, that the workshop is over, she’s still in touch with us helping, inspiring and answering all of our questions. She made me feel very confident about myself and my work, she’s amazing! I had the best weekend in years! Thank you so much for making it happen Katie Andelman!
