I just got back from Imaging USA and all I can say is "Wow"! Imaging is one of the largest photography conventions in the US and is held each year by Professional Photographers of America. This was my first full convention as opposed to just going to the expo and I am just overwhelmed with the wealth of information I came back with. I'm hoping to implement quite a few things in my business this year.
Now for the good stuff ... first off, I was able to attend a 2-day workshop with fellow newborn photographer Julia Kelleher of Jewel Images out of Bend, OR. Some of the images we created were just precious. We had some gorgeous models that resulted in these images.
After my workshop with Julia, I headed back home to pickup my bff (who is also a photographer) and headed back to Atlanta for the actual Imaging Convention. I was blown away by the speakers and had the privilege of hearing Drake Busath, Ana Brandt & Ashley Brooke. The resounding theme I was hearing was "Slow down, it's about your clients, not you". I needed to hear this. I've been so caught up in the day-to-day process of photographing clients, editing client sessions, doing the sales session, and placing orders, that I've forgotten to slow down and really take time for my clients. YOU! So this past year, if you've felt rushed (and I know some of you probably did), or as if the process didn't work that smoothly, I promise to try harder. For all of you who have stuck with me through the past years of growing my business and working out all the little kinks, Thank You! I love you guys from the bottom of my heart.
OH! One last little thing before closing out this post. I bought some of the most adorable newborn items you've ever seen!! Can't wait to use them. :)
