Big Day - Big Bubble Bath
I woke up at 5 this morning to an incredible sunset which was a real treat. I spent some time reading and preparing for my talk which went so well. So many friends came which always blesses me. Thank you.
There was a great crowd too which I was a little surprised by since it was 8am! I talked on WHY we should use video and media in our business and then Ron Dawson talked about HOW to do it. I snapped this shot of Ron as he moved the crowd (and himself) to tears - literally. He's an amazing guy.
Then after that we had three groups of photographers come up to our Suite and chat Showit stuff. It was super helpful to hear what you love and what we need to work on and we're doing a few more groups tomorrow and Wednesday but I think all the spots are filled so if you're having trouble "signing up" or hearing back it means that somebody beat ya to the punch.
Then...wow this post is getting long but I HAVE to write about these girls because they are really an inspiration to me. The Boudoir Divas. I met Kimberlee West a few years ago and have watched her career as a wedding photographer as well as a Boudoir photographer explode. She and Marissa started the Boudoir Divas and quickly rose to the top of their field. They have a beautiful book on boudior photography that I was honored to write the forward to so be sure to check that out!
They treated a huge group of us to an amazing sushi dinner! I am just so blown away at how sweet and giving they are and I hope all of you have a chance to meet them. I snapped these quick pictures as they were talking and just being around them made me want to try my skills so I snapped this shot of their legs. I think I'm a natural. lol.
Lastly I was gonna finish the night by going to Becker's party. He always has the coolest party at WPPI but I was shattered and so I came back up to the room and dumped the whole thing of soap into the bath and had a big bubble bath. It was amazing. It was a great day.
