When I started Boxwood Avenue, I never dreamt it would become what it is today. I had just graduated college and had been selling pillow covers on Etsy for a few years.

When sewing pillows became too much, I decided to start a blog where I could teach people how to sew pillows. I knew that blogging had potential to generate an income, yet I had no idea just how much potential blogging offers! Over the past 5 years, I have turned my creative dream into a full time business, and now, I want to teach you just how I did it! If I can do it, so can YOU!

I started these creative retreats to provide a hands-on learning experience to help you learn manual mode photography, editing techniques, business strategy, and so much more! In addition to learning, these retreats are set in one of the most beautiful places in the world with lots of time for relaxation between learning sessions!

When I stop to think about the catalyst of growth, it boils down to photography. Without my camera, I would essentially be without a job! It’s amazing to me what I have been able to build simply with a camera and a laptop!

At our retreat, you will learn how to operate your camera in manual mode, how to edit the photos you capture, and how to turn those photos into content to generate income for your business!

PHOTOGRAPHY & STYLING

Photography is so much more than picking up a camera and pressing a button, you will learn how to master manual mode and compose the photos you dream of. Learn how to style, capture, and edit beautiful photos that tell your brand’s story.

BLOGGING

Does blogging seem like something you can’t seem to wrap your head around? We will break blogging down into actionable steps so that you can begin building authority in your niche. You will learn everything from SEO to monetization, and much (much) more!

CREATIVE BUSINESS

Turning your day dream into your day job isn’t easy… There is so much to learn in order to successfully monetize your business and earn a steady income from it! We will cover branding, growing your business, making money, and how to develop systems to streamline your workflow.
