When the AKP Squad puts on a styled shoot, they PUT ON A STYLED SHOOT. We had models, we had beautiful dresses. Cakes, flowers, gorgeous glassware, invitations...we had it all. Every detail was thought of.
What I loved about this retreat was that Ashton let each one of us have time to shoot everything. She set us up in groups and we rotated around until everything was photographed. Most other retreats or workshops have everyone shoot at the same time...I mean hello? Not everyone can get a good angle with 10 people standing in front of them. But Ashton is different. She cares about her people. She wants to make sure that the girls attending her retreat get the most out of the education. I appreciated that so much.
Ashton, I know you can be hard on yourself, but you are such an inspiration to me. You allow so many girls to believe in themselves. Don't ever stop doing what you are meant to be doing!
