The next LOFT will be October 23-26th in Kennebunk, Maine!

Our Fall LOFTs are what started it all, so we are so excited to announce the official dates for the 2017 Fall LOFT. We’ve reserved a charming beach house right on Gooch’s Neck on the coast of Maine just a mile from Kennebunkport and we can’t wait to see you there!
(That arrow? Yeah. It’s pointing to our house!)

What exactly is LOFT?

The LOFT is a Creatives Retreat that happens a few times a year in different locations around New England. Some of our retreats are for relaxation & workshops while some of them are working retreats. Relocate your office with us for a few days to get some work done in a different atmosphere, connect with other creatives & self-employed folks, socialize, take in the pretty views and take advantage of what each of our different locations could offer for photoshoots & creativity! Whether you’re a photographer, planner, blogger, social media coordinator, author, artist, musician… this retreat is open to ALL creatives!

Fall LOFTs are our working retreats – pack up your office and get some work done somewhere new and inspiring with friends old and new! Relocate your workspace to a fresh environment to kick your productivity back into gear.

Winter/Spring LOFTs are our workshop & learning retreats – get ready for some packed days full of marketing discussions, roundtable reviews, styled shoot workshops, a lot of networking/collaborating and a ton of laughter & relaxation! The image above is from our March 2017 Retreat in a beautiful historic estate in the Berkshires where we did a full wedding styled shoot workshop, food styling workshop, website reviews and branding exploration.

Check out these blog posts about our wedding styled shoot AND food photography shoot that we did at our March 2017 Workshop Retreat in the Berkshires!

Who can attend this retreat?

LOFT is open to all creatives and business owners. Whether you’re a photographer, blogger, graphic designer, writer, jeweler, stationer, planner… Any creative career is welcome to join us! Established business owners as well as those looking to make the leap are both encouraged to come. For our Fall Retreat in Maine, we have space for 12 incredible creatives!

How much will the retreat cost and what is included?

For 4 days and 3 nights, the cost will be between $185/person for your accommodations only. Your meals and snacks will be on your own dime, but we’ve got cozy beds for you every night you’re with us. A non-refundable deposit of $75 will be collected to hold your spot once registration is open.

Where and when will this retreat be held?

Our next LOFT will be October 23-26, 2017 in Kennebunk, Maine. We’ve been in some pretty incredible locations in the past, and this Fall we are headed as close to the beautiful beach as possible. Check out these gorgeous pictures of our working home-away-from home (or is it office-away-from-office?). This space is going to bring so much inspiration, collaboration, productivity and rest all at the same time!

What can I expect from this retreat?

As always, LOFT is a great opportunity to meet & network with other creatives and make some new friends, but our Fall LOFTs are more geared towards helping to boost your productivity and creativity in your busiest season. You will have a completely open schedule to get as much work or as much exploring done as possible and will have plenty of space to set up your office. A couple of us even bring our 27″ iMacs to get our editing done. Random sessions, discussions and learning experiences tend to happen naturally and spontaneously onsite with so many talented and experienced creatives, and you can count on some incredible cooking, loads of laughter and meaningful conversations.

What does the schedule look like?

Fall LOFTs are much less structured as they are designed for you to get your own work done on your own schedule. With that said, there are some great optional opportunities to take advantage of while you’re with us in Maine. Take a look below and we’ll keep you posted of any additional opportunities that arise in advance.
