A much-needed respite – Colagrossi Studio and Della Terra Photo go on vacation.

To find inspiration, some photographers do workshops, some watch you tube videos, some follow blogs…us at Colagrossi Studio and our friends at Della Terra Photo like to disappear into the moutains. After snagging an amazing Groupon for a secluded cabin in the North Carolina Smokies (score one for Tarah) the four of us packed up our gear and an amazing amout of craft beer and ciders and literally headed for the hills.

I highly recommend Hidden Creek Cabins, our beautiful farmhouse was more than we could have asked for and an A+ for secenery.

Our first visitor, a presumed stray we dubbed “Doug Dog.” We and other cabin dwellers took him under our wing for a bit 🙂

With a 30 degree difference between NC and home, we quickly took advantage of the wamth and set out for a morning hike along a small waterfall.

Shooting digitally can sometimes cause you to take photography – and photographs in general – for granted. Our primary focus for the trip was shooting film, but we still managed to get some digitals of our besties during our trip 🙂
