Sophie, Olive, Addie, Emma, Kaylee and Taegan! Thank you girls! You were amazing!
This past weekend I was in South Beach Miami at what I can only explain as a life changing experience. Why was it life changing? Because not only did Brooke Logue Photography and her team (Tonya, Steve and Pete) teach us about the obvious, how to take great images but they also taught us how to capture the soul of a child, how to connect with them, how to create a reoccurring feeling for parents (apperception) when they see an image you captured of their child and how to reconnect with your imagination. Never did I think I would go to a photography workshop and learn about Philosophy or Psychology but we did and not only did I leave a better photographer but I left awakened and renewed. I’ve been to about 18 workshops in the past 2 or 3 years and this by far HANDS DOWN was THE BEST workshop I have been to. I am so exited to see where my creativity will go from here and to see how my images will evolve. ” ~ Suzanne
“It’s not just a workshop, its a life changer.” ~Anonymous
Good morning, I am not good with word to express myself but I am going to give it a try.
Word can’t express how amazing it was to be part of the Sense of Wonder Workshop. I look at photography totally in a different way. You all have taught me to see through my soul, not my camera.I love to listen to you talk. Your positive energy, passion and that sparkle in your eyes when you talk is so powerful, it touches my soul and makes me feel like nothing is off limits and anything is possible.Thank you again from bottom of my heart, this was a life changing experience. ” ~Imtaz
“Instead of focusing on what to do, we focus on how to think. Of course we have loads of technical training, but the most important area that we talk about is about how to think, feel and be real… and how that will affect your photography and hopefully your life. We try to build a sense of community and creativity and I think I am safe to say that everyone including the instructors have been blown away by the times we have shared and the images created.” ~Pete Collins
“You have NO idea how much I have taken away from your workshop – on so many levels. Philosophically, psychologically, spiritually, emotionally and then of course editing and composition. I really scrutinized each of my images and kept the 4 of your voices in the back of my head when choosing which images to edit and deciding how to crop them. It was amazing looking at my images with new, fresh eyes. Lastly, I am so glad I chose to stay the first day for the tech class with Steve and Pete. I really believe it made all the difference in my images. I really didn’t need to do much editing when I got home hence the reason I’ve knocked so many images from the workshop out so fast in the few hours I’ve been able to work around the family.
A million thank yous are not enough to you and the team of amazing artists you have assembled. I am over the moon I made the investment in your workshop and have no qualms about paying to attend a future one. ~Anonymous“Hey Brooke! I just want to thank you again for inviting Sophie to Miami for the workshop last weekend. To say it was an amazing opportunity does not even closely describe how we felt after leaving and now as we see all the amazing images from so many talented photographers coming in. I don’t think I could ever thank you enough for including her, she had so much fun and really connected with you and Tonya. To see some of these images that show the true essence of her and the special kid that she is makes me so incredibly happy, you have no idea! I love that all your workshop students are more to you than just your students, and that shines through so beautifully in the images. They adore you, the girls adored you and after meeting you we totally understand why so thank you, thank you so much for allowing Sophie to be a part of this. It’s something she will never forget!~ Jennifer “
“I do this to not only help my students grow in their photography and art, but to change lives, to encourage them to see the world in a different way. And not only are we changing their lives, their changing ours too. To see the expression on their faces, to see us all come together as a community. It makes my soul sing. This is life changing. For all of us. ” Brooke

“This is becoming a tradition at the workshops. The kids love it and we get some amazing shots. Steve Gustafson and I are a tag team… he is the spinner and I am the shooter. The kids give some of the best smiles and the slight dizziness and aching back are worth it.”~ Pete Collins
You have no idea how perfectly you captured the soulful spirit of Sophie that very, very few photographers get from her. When I describe her THIS EXACT photo is the image I have in my head. You are amazing and this photo is one of the many reasons I am so thankful we were able to be in Miami this past weekend. Thank you so much again for such a beautiful and truly personal image of my sweet girl.
