As if this Florida girl was not cold enough, I am headed to Nashville, Tenn for Imaging USA! Bbbrrr! It is the Professional Photographers of America’s national conference and I can’t wait! The very best in the industry will be there not only teaching about all things photography related but all the businesses aspects involved with running a successful photography studio as well. (not to mention the most amazing trade show….I promised myself to try not to spend all of my 2010 profits before I even make any! Ha!) Oh, and some of my fab photog girlfriends will be there, too!! So excited to hang with Kelly Hite of Pure Sugar Studios, Edie Black of Edie Black Photography, Christine Ryan of Christine Nicole Photography, Robyn Osten of Life’s Little Celebrations, Alycia Alvarez of Alycia Alvarez Photography, Joy Vertz of Shoot the Moon, and Teri Mason of Teri Mason Photography! Cocktails anyone?! Oh how bored our husbands would be with all our photography chatter. Pete would scream and probably pull out his hair! Ha! So, the studio will be closed through Wednesday but feel free to give me a shout or drop me a line if you need to reach me. Stay warm, Tampa!! xo
Ok, ok, so I am so behind on my blog posts- I know. That’s 10 lashings with a wet noodle! This is my busiest time of year with sessions every day and night, events out the wazoo, workshops, vendor shows….oh my! Oh, and trying to keep a personal life. What is that? I think Pete and Ethan have forgotten what I look like 🙁 Anywho, here is a super FAB video from a recent wedding photography workshop I attended in Miami with some of the country’s BEST wedding photogs. My philosophy- if you want to be the best, surround yourself with the best, pick the brains of the best, soak in all you can! Grab every educational opportunity you can afford- not only to enhance your skill set, but your business savvy as well.
We shot at the Biltmore Hotel in Miami- so beautiful. Check this out. See if you can spot me. I am the one with the determined (and sometimes perplexed) look on her face! Ha!
On a side note, make sure to stop by the Junior League’s Holiday Gift Market Saturday or Sunday. Come visit the Andi Diamond Photography booth and say hello! Register for a session at the event and receive a complimentary framed storyboard (a $225 value). Lots of great vendors- come check it out! All you early birds can get your holiday shopping done! WOW! Happy weekend!
