June 2016 Shootout | The Happy Togs | Barrington, Illinois

Just last week, I had the amazing opportunity to meet a small group of photographers, photograph two children models and a family model alongside them, and enjoy our time getting to know one another in the photography industry! Talk about #communityovercompetition! This was so fun, and I can't wait to do it again!

I learned about The Happy Togs several months ago and even had the opportunity to meet the founders, Jess and Tracy, at this year's The Reset Conference in Champaign, IL. I already felt like I "knew" them (not in a creepy way!) through the genuine online presence they both have to offer, but after meeting them, it's true that these ladies truly have the photography (and creative) community in their hearts. 

It is amazing to see their vision to bring people together and to share our "happy" in action, too! Jess and Tracy are just some of the most sweet and passionate people that I have met in the industry!

Enjoy photos from the shootout, and even a handful of behind the scenes shots, too!
