Hello Photographer

I AM THRILLED YOU STOPPED BY

here you will learn about our love affair with all things romantic and ethereal

I always knew I wanted to be a teacher, born into a family of college professors and teachers it seemed a natural path to follow. I have always had a passion for public speaking and teaching others, and I use love getting to share my passion for photography with other photographers. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would take a dream job as a photographer and then further pursue my dream by teaching something I love so much to a photographers community.

 

My workshops revolve around helping photographers become stronger shooters, better editors, more financially successful and helping them achieve goals they didn't think possible.

why attend a workshopWhimsie Studios workshops are the perfect opportunity to grow your business, learn from
our experienced team, meet new vendors and photographers and network together. You will
grow not only your portfolio but your knowledge of running a business, booking more shoots,
editing tips and techniques, beginning to shoot film, curating your galleries, marketing to your
ideal clients, organically growing your business from the ground up and so much more. We will
teach you everything we know from the beginning stages of bidding a job and meeting a client,
to the final product delivery. Our workshops are limited to 10 attendees to keep them small and
intimate and allow you the freedom to work closely with me one on one throughout the day
without fighting for time and space on the shoots.
Just had my first mentoring session with Sadi and I must say I was very impressed with her.
Very sweet, caring and a very professional woman that really takes an interest in others.
She actually took the time to talk with me and help me with any questions I had,
I didn't feel that I was just another customer,
I felt like she actually cared to help me to learn and grow as a
new photographer,that was a very nice feeling.
Sadi's work is so gorgeous and I hope that one day I will become
a little piece of the Rockstar that she is.

I was fortunate to have worked with Sadi recently at the Whimsie Workshop
she put together at the Pine Rose Cabins in Lake Arrowhead.
I was blown away! I've got to say, Sadi more than exceeded my expectations.
She has an amazing eye for detail, and she has a definite talent for sharing her passion
in a way that is both very professional but at the same time very personable and real.
In every aspect, she is a class act and the caliber of her work speaks for itself.
I look forward to working with her again in the future!!

I've had the amazing pleasure of working with Sadi Alford of Whimsie Photographie
several times. I've learned so much from her and owe a lot of my success to how
wonderful of a teacher she is. She's totally an open book, and has a true passion for
helping and teaching others! I most recently attended a flow posing workshop of hers.
It has helped my business tremendously! Along with Sadi's amazing lighting she
has a way with posing! Her clients always looked relaxed and in a flattering pose.
I'm so glad I took her posing workshop and I can't wait for the next one!
I've used what I've learned at a few weddings since and I feel like my posing has
improved so much! I'm so happy with the way my clients look and I'm sure it will help
me book future weddings and sessions!
Thank you so much Sadi!!
