I can't say that we've had a chat like this in quite some time. So, who are some of your favorite photographers? Who do you look to for inspiration? Who would you most love to have your dream mentoring session with??

A few of my favorites are:

Lisa Holloway: https://www.facebook.com/ljhollowayphotography - My all time favorite. I would just die to have a session with her!
Meg Bitton: https://www.facebook.com/MegBittonPhotography - Not MY style at all, but her work is just so incredibly beautiful!
Andrea Joki: https://www.facebook.com/AjatonJoki -
Zoe Berkovic: https://www.facebook.com/zoe.berkovic - So fun/funky/original!
Gary Christenot: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Gary-Christenot-Photography/270576839670275 - Even though he's not in business I LOVE his work with backlighting.

Lisa Halloway - probably my biggest inspiration and closest to my own style.
Laura Brett - If only I were a newborn photographer. Atlanta Newborn Photographer | Atlanta Baby Photographer | Atlanta Maternity Photographer
Amber Scruggs of Little Moon - Home ? Little Moon Blog
Nichole Van - If I were a more "artsy" photographer - Flickr: NicholeVan's Photostream
Narelle who used to post here some time ago - if I were a lifetime photographer. - Flickr: NARRELLE | NJOY THE MOMENT's Photostream
Aimee Reynolds - Who also used to post here. She and I started at just about the same time and she quickly blew past me in skill and business prowess. She's awesome...a genius I think! Aimee Reynolds Photography | Wedding & Portrait Photographer
Jessica Janae - She shot some photos of my cousins and she's just amazing. She's like 25 yrs old and such a visionary. Her style is nothing like mine, but I find her super inspiring. https://www.facebook.com/jessicajanaephotography

So glad that you posted this- I am about to go like all of those pages. There's nothing I enjoy more than beautiful photos blowing up my feed.

My favorite is Jessica Drossin: https://www.facebook.com/JessicaDrossinTextures?fref=ts

Locally, I like Emily Tesnow. I hope to have a session with her next year. I like her style- it's really different. https://www.facebook.com/emilytesnowphotography?fref=ts

I have had my past 2 family photos taken with Jennifer Marie. She specializes in color pop and she's generally very bright and airy: https://www.facebook.com/jennifermariephotography?fref=ts

and the ever-popular Rachel Vanoven. Honestly, I like her personality just as much as her photos. She cracks me up. https://www.facebook.com/rachelvanovenphotography?fref=ts
