  • WPPI 2014 Recap | Part One

you guys were right. I spent a lot of time freaking out about not having anyone show up to my talk and we had an amazing turnout this past Tuesday night! I still can’t believe it’s over and I can officially say that I spoke at one of the largest photography conferences in the world. That’s pretty exciting and I’m honored that I had this incredible opportunity!!! Now before I share some fun highlights of this experience, you have to hear this story. So, at WPPI, you can do something called “Pre-boarding”. This is when you signup to attend a class before the conference begins to claim a seat!

  • Time to Relax

I can relax. I seriously feel like I just took the largest final exam of my life. My college memories of preparing and practicing and stressing for a big presentation came flooding back to me this week as I prepared to speak at WPPI for the very first time. I can’t wait to share more about that experience later on this month. It was such a honor to be a speaker at a convention that I have attended since the very first year I started my business!! So today I have no voice but I’m feeling AWESOME because it’s DONE!

Now before all of the guys totally check out of this post… let me explain! Journaling isn’t a DIARY!! It’s so much more than that! For me, journaling started as a way to document my life.
