4 Day Women’s Empowerment Photoshoot Retreat On The Lake

Rise and Shine! It's time to reclaim yourself | April 20-23

Experience, explore and reconnect with Mother Nature in a 4 Day Women’s Empowerment Photoshoot Retreat on Beaver Lake. 

Have you ever wanted to do a beautiful photoshoot surrounded by the natural beauty of Mother Nature? The Rise & Shine Retreat is your invitation to be brave, vulnerable, and to step into the light within you. Learn to love yourself the way you are truly meant to be loved. Get creative with your retreat host, Lana Thomas, on a transformational photoshoot experience in nature. Enjoy chef-prepared meals rooted in relationship to the earth & Indigenous culture. Connect with a community of like minded women- sharing stories & laughs as we uncover our inner light.

You will spend your time...
  • Healing your relationship to your self & body in guided journal sessions
  • Fueling your confidence with an empowering Rise & Shine photoshoot in nature.
  • Exploring the natural wonders around you on nearby excursion.
  • Having a blast with women pursuing a deeper connection.

I will be with you each step of the way to help you achieve your vision, challenge your negative beliefs, and to remind you of the light burning within you. No prior experience is necessary to attend this retreat.

You will walk away feeling gorgeous and prepared to radiate confidence in your deepest sense of self love, from the inside out. Your connection with yourself and the earth will be fully restored from a weekend of being unplugged and immersed in Mother Nature. Additionally, you will return with a stunning collection of fine art prints from your Rise & Shine photoshoot as a lasting reminder of the journey that reignited the light that shines within you.

The Rise & Shine Retreat also offers you a new community of women to support and inspire you in your endeavors, long after the retreat is over.

Are you ready to feel freshly empowered, rejuvenated, and inspired by this unique experience? Reserve your spot today!

You’ll be staying at a luxury Airbnb nestled away on Beaver Lake, Arkansas. Wake up to amazing views of crystal clear waters, enjoy morning coffee or tea on the deck overlooking the lake, and soak in the tub while gazing out the window. The lake and other natural wonders will be only a few steps out your back door.

You will be surrounded by bluffs and the sounds of waterfalls to engage your creativity. At the end of the day we will gather around the fire pit, telling tales of adventures had and dreams yet to be.

You’ll be able to take time before or after the retreat to explore top destinations in the area, like Eureka Springs, hundreds of miles of hiking trails, the exquisite art collection at Crystal Bridges Museum, and Thorncrown Chapel (awarded one of the best buildings of the 20th century - I’ve photographed there & can vouch that it’s worth visiting)!

Your Host

Lana Thomas

I’m Lana Thomas, your Rise & Shine Retreat host! I’ve been in the photography business for over 20 years with the belief that we women owe it to ourselves to celebrate our body at every stage of life. In 2010, I opened Voulez Vous Boudoir Studio to give women a safe space for a transformational portrait experience, and now I’m taking this concept out into wild on a 4-Day Retreat!! Boudoir has the power to build confidence, promote self-love, and help women embrace their unique journey and Mother Nature has the ability to heal, ground, and nourish us. I have seen it in my clients be transformed by the power of outdoor portraiture and experienced it for myself (yes, I pose for the camera too)! I can assure you that the Rise & Shine Retreat is designed with care to provide a powerful and immersive journey to self.
