Earlier this week I was at the PPA tradeshow - Imaging USA - in Tampa and I did something I hadn't done before and that was I crammed everything I needed to do into a 4 hour time slot. First I had my platform presentation, then a meeting with folks from Germany where I'll be headed in March to do a gig for a group there and then a meeting with Al Hopper and Joan Sherwood from the PPA organization and Professional Photographer Magazine b/c we're teaming up on a really cool new way to share knowledge in the wedding industry. Stay tuned!
I was speaking at 7am in the biggest room I've ever seen in my life! My friend Liana Lehman warned me about how big the rooms are but I had no idea.
I think they held just under 1000 people and during the presentation the spot lights were on so I couldn't really see how many people where there but judging by this photo that Allie snapped it looks like it was pretty full so that totally stokes me out!
I got to meet some absolutely wonderful people and one of my favorites was my new friend Cindy who Allie and I met at the coffee shop at 6am before my speech. She recognized us and said "I love you guys" and then bought us breakfast! It was the nicest thing ever and we both are still talking about how much that meant to us so thank you Cindy. You are such a sweet soul and I hope we cross paths again!
