Girl’s Photo Retreat | June 10-13 | Shades State Park + Turkey Run State Park

I’m hosting my first ever girl’s photo retreat! This will be a 4-day getaway filled with stylized photoshoots, lots of hiking + outdoor exploring, and networking with other Indiana photographers. Due to limited space for lodging, only 8 girls will be accepted for the full retreat (if this goes well, I promise we’ll do a larger one!!). We are also only allowing photographers over the age of 18 to participate in overnight retreat, but anyone can sign up to tag along for the photoshoot spots (more information below).


The full retreat is $235 a person and includes all lodging, park fees, photoshoot fees, food, and weekend activities. You are responsible for travel costs (we will be carpooling between locations during the weekend).. The final schedule has not been decided so there might be an extra meal or two you will have to pay for the weekend of if we decide to eat out. To save your spot, you will need to pay a $100 nonrefundable deposit and I will invoice you for the rest of the payment a month before the retreat.

What is Included

The full retreat (June 10-13) includes the following:

  • 3-night stay at Sweet Creek Retreat Log Cabin

  • Welcome dinner

  • Entrance fees to parks

  • Meals and snacks at cabin

  • 4 stylized photoshoots

    • 1 elopement/wedding at Turkey Run (only for full retreat members)

    • 1 couple’s photoshoot at Shades State Park

    • Hiking photoshoot with multiple models

    • Sunrise photoshoot

  • Time for personal photoshoots

  • Hiking trips through Turkey Run and Shades State Park

  • Kayak trip through Turkey Run

Just Interested in the Photoshoots?

Because we had so much positive feedback about this retreat, there will be 10 extra photographer spots available for just the couple’s photoshoot and the hiking photoshoot. These spots will be $30 for one or $55 for both. Once a finalized schedule has been decided, spots will go on sale. You will be responsible for your own transportation and park entrance fees are not included.

Models, MUA, Hair Stylists, & Vendors

Due to the high number of photographer’s interested in this retreat, we will only be accepting photographers to stay for the full overnight retreat. We are in need of multiple female models, 2 couples (married or dating), and a few female make-up artists/hair stylists/florists/boutique owners to collab with us for the photoshoots. We would love to include as many lady bosses as possible to come to life and you will have between 10-20 photographers taking photos + sharing your work through Instagram! If you’d be interested in collabing, please fill out the contact form below and we will be in touch soon!
