I couldn’t be happier for these two! They will be the very best parents to their twins. I know they are anxious to meet their babies. We had so much fun together at their engagement and wedding in 2010. I am truly honored to be a part of their biggest celebrations in life!

Photo Convention, PhotoPro Expo 2015

Category: Misc. | January 26th, 2015

It is always exciting each year to be inspired by so many great speakers at our local photo convention. World-class photographers come to Northern Kentucky to speak about their work and tell their story of how they came to be so well known for their art. This year the underlying them seemed to be vision. What sets us all apart is the unique perspective we bring to our work. Peter Hurley is known for his headshots for Vanity Fair and Abercrombie and Fitch. He had some funny hints on how to get the most out of each client. Roberto Valenzuela had to be my favorite speaker. It could have been his sexy accent but I also adored seeing his before and after photos. He has truly trained his eye to make the most out of every situation. He encouraged us all to practice thirty minutes a week on different lighting situations. And that we should always ask how can you improve the light? Michael Grecco who is well knows for photographing celebrities gave a wonderful quote for inspiration on staying in the moment:

“Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn,
a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter.
If your mind isn’t clouded by unnecessary things,
this is the best season of your life.” Wu-Men

Tamara Lackey spoke on lifestyle portraits and how to create authentic expressions even in the midst of chaos. And the final speaker I saw was Matthew Jordan Smith who talked about how important relationships are to creating connections with our clients.

Overall I am excited to start 2015 with so many great ideas to put into practice. The trade show also featured many new products we can’t wait to share and order. Thank you to the photo community for putting in the work to create a fun experience and for being so open to sharing! See you next year!

There is nothing that compares to holding a sweet little newborn. Their tiny features and little sounds just make your heart melt. Isabella is the daughter of my dear friend Margaret. It has been so exciting to see her love grow and how happy she is with her beautiful family. When we volunteered together at the Ronald McDonald House a few years ago I watched both Bob and Margaret interact with the kids. They were naturals! So I couldn’t wait for it be their turn. Margaret and Bob I am so happy for you both and I just know you are going to be the best parents! I wish your adorable family all the very best! (A special thank you to my good friends Diana and Dawn for inviting me to Isabella’s first photo session – I can’t wait to see their photos too. It was so fun to be creative together! They are both super talented photographers but also amazing baby wranglers and reflector holders!)
