What’s more fun than hanging out with a gaggle of friends?

Hanging out with a gaggle of friends while getting fabulous photographs of course.

I’ve teamed with Amy Ashurst of The RYE Studio to make getting fresh and fabulous photos easy + breezy. Clients have used their photos for projects like; that book you’re dying to write, website, work or Linked-IN, business, social media and dating sites, or just to have a freaking fabulous photo to give you a boost in confidence.

It really is the most fun you’ll ever have updating your photos.

Real Estate Agents, Doctor’s Offices, Yoga Teachers, Wellness Practitioners, Fashion Designers, we’ve photographed folks in all types of business’s.

We’d love to take your photos too.

Host a private Photo Retreat for a group of friends or co-workers to update photos for your website, LinkedIN, or marketing materials.

What’s included:

  • Rock-star photo shoot with RYE
  • 3 photos of your choice in both black and white and color (that’s like getting 6 photos!)
  • A group shot to remember your day together
  • A fancy lunch to eat on site or take on the go
  • Socializing + networking/teambuilding + giggles
  • Lots of support and cheers from your retreat buddies (Huzzah!)

You’ll own the rights to your photos so you can use them + print them as you wish. AND you can purchase any additional photos for just $25 each. (psst- that’s half off the regular rate.)

Always included with your retreat are these bonus items to support you before and after the retreat.

  • Retreat Guide filled handy tips on what to what-the-heck to wear, what to expect, and how to prepare for the retreat so you will rock-the-socks off your photo shoot.
  • A copy of my e-book How To Get The MOST Out Of Your Photos. A guide on posting, printing, and marketing with your new photos.


Cost: $300


How to book your retreat:

Contact Trish via the form at the bottom of this page to schedule a date for your retreat. Please put “book a private retreat” in the subject line.


  • You’ll need a minimum of 6 friends booked + paid to save the date.
  • Maximum number of participants is 8 (or 10 depending on the type of photos needed).
  • If your group is larger than 10 we will book your event over several days. (We’ve done these many times.)
  • For busy corporate offices- who just need a few headshots per person- ask about same day delivery. (Same day delivery is only available in certain situations and must be agreed to ahead of time- so we can allow time for editing. If you need a lot of photos this option will NOT be available for your group.)

Hostess Responsibilities:

Your main job is getting your retreaters booked and paid as quickly as possible so we can LOCK IN your retreat date. After that it’s pretty smooth sailing on your end. Just show up prepared to have fun and we’ll take care of the rest.


Hostess Bonus:

As a gift for hosting your group we will include 2 extra photos in your package- for a total of 5 photos for you as hostess. Yay!

Cancellations: If you must cancel and you do so at least 2 weeks prior to your retreat- you will receive a full credit to attend on another date. Cancellations with less than two weeks’ notice due to emergency may receive a partial credit to attend on another date- decided on a case by case basis.

“I had been putting off updating all of my social media and website materials for an upcoming campaign because I didn’t have any head shots that I really loved.  I came across Trish’s photo retreat – and was so intrigued!  The idea of a less formal group setting, with the timing to really make sure I had several great shots in a variety of outfits and backgrounds seemed like a perfect fit…and I was not disappointed! 

Trish’s communication throughout the process was great, and Rye’s shots were fantastic! 

Exactly what I was hoping I’d get, and more.  I would highly recommend the photo retreats to anyone who is looking for something beyond the stale traditional head shot photos, or who has always been anxious about the formal photography setting.  Thanks Trish!”

“I had such a wonderful time! Trish’s energy is spectacular and Rye captured my smile, my energy, and found my quirky side too. They truly represent my authenticity, transparency and happiness that is so much a part of my brand.

I felt so safe. Like the ladies in the room were there to lift each other up and cheer each other on in a way that wouldn’t necessarily happen in a one-on-one session.  Yet, the time I got with Rye one-on-one was just perfect!  She made me feel so special and important and that was the cherry on top!

The food was delicious.  So fresh and LOCAL!!!  The personal touch- honey from your kid’s bee hives- made it all the more tasty! 

I don’t know what else to say, just a great big THANK YOU!”

Krystal Ronanbaum


“I had a very bad picture experience at our son’s wedding and cried for 18 hours (not joking). I was determined to move forward after that experience by having my photo taken in a fun and beautiful setting.

I was hoping for one photo that I really liked and could feel good about uploading to social media.  I got 11!

The pictures reflect who I am in my business life but also in my life in general. One of my friends saw my photos and said  ‘Wow, she really captured YOU!’  and yes, I think she did.  

Somehow, viewing my photos from the retreat has allowed me to actually see how much I do love myself- by allowing my real essence to be captured.  I feel like Rye really saw me and it show’s in the pictures.

What I wanted most from my photo shoot was a photo of myself where I looked as beautiful and sexy as I feel. I got exactly that!

Thank you Trish!  Thank you RYE!”

“The Photo Retreat was really special. It was wonderful to have a group of women working together to support each other. I loved the studio and the creative use of the props.  And Rye was awesome! I never like to see myself in pictures but I was really pleased with the photos and everyone loved them.

I would totally do it again.”

AnaLeyah North

“The Photo Retreat was a totally delightful and fun adventure. Trish is a great hostess, very supportive and encouraging, and the food was the best- so healthy and fresh!

I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to pose for the photos despite being very nervous. Rye and Chase were so welcoming + the studio was funky and amazing.

Now I know why people have a light in their eyes after one of your retreats and I have the pictures to prove it.”

Claudia Cardin-Kleffner

“I have never been a big fan of getting my photo taken. But in no time at all, and with no stress, it was done, and I’ve had so many wonderfully great comments on my new photos.

The photography studio is amazing.  I felt really comfortable during my session and the whole process so very easy and fun I hardly realized I was being photographed!

What a treat to have lunch included as part of the event, the food was excellent! And I have to add, Trish is a great hostess and cheerleader.

The whole experience was very positive and very, very supportive.”

Peggy Newham

“It was worth every penny. My photos turned out fabulous. In fact, my twenty-something nephew blurted out “You look so young!”.

I loved that the photographer took the time to listen to each person and what they wanted from their photos. The food was beautifully presented and I loved the sweet treats!

I felt really supported and enjoyed the whole process. Plus I made some new friends. Highly recommended!”

Lisa Holiman

“I’m very pleased with my photos.  They are so much better than photos I’ve had done in the past and the photo shoot was way more fun.  I really enjoyed watching the other gals get their photos taken too.

I appreciated the tips on preparing for the shoot, and doing the photo viewing together as a group was really helpful when it came time to choose a photo.  Oh, and the food was awesome.”

Martha Childers

“This was such a memorable day for me. I had such a nice time enjoying good food and good people. The photo shoot seemed so effortless on my end, so easy and really a lot of fun.  Rye (and hubby) did a great job making me feel comfortable in my own skin.

My photos turned out so nice.  I was a little shocked that I look that hot!

I am SO glad I did it. And I would love to do it again!”

Meggin Tryk

“I’m very camera shy but I felt so at ease and really enjoyed myself. My photos turned out so good I would have never been able to choose which ones I wanted on my own.  I was grateful for help the support of the group in selecting the photos that were just right for what I needed.

It was a great experience. ”

Ginger Sparks

“I needed some photos to promote my art business since I haven’t had professional photos done since High School (which was a while ago!).

Trish and Rye were very supportive and made the whole process effortless and easy. The studio is a laid back, fun space and I loved that the studio dogs where hanging around during the photo shoot.

The food… was both beautiful and delicious. I had a blast hanging out with great people and watching Rye work her magic with everyone’s shoot.

Rye does an amazing job of capturing the essence of each person that she photographs. I love my photos and get very positive reactions when people see them.”
