Relish, Refresh, and Recreate

San Luis Obispo, California

3-day one-on-one retreat to rejuvenate yourself and photograph your personal brand.
Booked between March 1 thru April 31, 2021

Your retreat begins with the reveal of your brand essence over a glass of wine at an Edna Valley winery. This time will be a decompression and brainstorming session while you sip, taste, and relish the view of the surrounding vineyards. Assessing your goals and the portraits you need for your brand story. We’ll finalize the meeting by creating a solid plan of action in advance for the day of your photoshoot. For the remainder of the day, you are free to explore the area.



Decompress from your everyday work week to expand your business outreach. Focus on yourself and three days of brand development and professional photography. This three-day excursion is the perfect balance of distraction-free focused work and play. You’ll fly into the San Luis Obispo airport atop beautiful rolling hills and vineyards and land minutes from a winery. The entire adventure is a mix of exploring the area, refining your brand image, planning/shopping for wardrobe, and a professional lifestyle and editorial photography experience. 

Extend your stay over the weekend and enjoy the area more with scenic hikes, beach activities, and of course, more wine tasting. Arrive back to work the following week refreshed and clear about the direction your brand and business are going.



On your second day, we explore your sense of style. From professional to casual looks, the purpose is to give you a flattering form and a high perceived value. Our Style Consultant will look through the wardrobe you packed and help coordinate the perfect outfits for the day of your photography session. Are you missing any wardrobe must-haves? Our Style expert will then escort you to downtown San Luis Obispo for a shopping day at the best shops and boutiques.



The big day! Excitement is in the air, and after a good night’s rest, your day begins with you getting pampered by one of our professional makeup artists and hairstylist. Then, off to multiple locations and photography throughout the day.  Expect about 2 hours of makeup, hair, wardrobe, and up to 3 hours of photography. Once the session is complete you can enjoy the evening out all dolled up. Sip another favorite local wine at one of San Luis Obispo delectable bistro’s.
