Years ago when I was looking for my first camera bag, I stumbled upon a very small company called the House of Flynn. They had a super limited selection of bags, but they were absolutely gorgeous (and so far out of my price range that I just dreamt about them for literally years). As the company grew, I continued to stalk the bags online and finally joined a Facebook group for them (and purchased my first [new to me] bag). I was instantly HOOKED. I’m not saying this because I own 5 of their bags (#hofaddiction is real) but guys…if you’re looking for a sturdy, cute, spacious camera bag, or diaper bag, or purse…go check them out.
Last December I saw that HOF was going to host a photography workshop in Ireland. FREAKING IRELAND, Y’ALL. It has been the #1 country on my travel list since I was 7 years old. I took a screenshot of the post and sent it to JB saying, “OH MY GOSH THIS IS MY DREAM HOW COOL WOULD THIS BE!!!???” or something along those lines. The applications filled within an hour and I was so bummed that I’d missed out, but when I saw that they were still accepting backup applications, I sent one in thinking there was absolutely NO way that I’d ever get picked.
3 days later I got an email saying I’d been accepted into the workshop and I started to cry on our couch (one of those moments where JB just kind of looked at me not knowing what to do 😂). 6 short months later, I was on a plane bound for a week with 18 women I’d never met. I’ll never be able to describe that week & how spectacular it was. Truly, there are no words for the laughter, tears, stories and pub crawls – and I’d never even try to find them!! The women that I met have become such a big part of my life (I just returned from 5 days in Portland with half of them!!) – we talk almost every day and I could never have imagined that a CAMERA BAG company would have brought us together this way.
I got SO many portraits and candids of the ladies from the trip, so I figured it would be easiest to just put them all in one big ole post. They’re located all over the country + Canada & if you ever need a photographer in their locations – call them.
