SPEAKING WPPI PHOTOGRAPHY CONFERENCE_9116

The Life Size Breathrough | Wppi 2015

I’ve walked down the long…. VERY long halls of WPPI as a newbie… as a fan girl… and as a speaker. Every year is different in its’ own way. This year was my second year speaking and walking down the halls felt familiar. I wasn’t quite as nervous, I wasn’t a newbie and I think I’ve graduated from my fangirl phase. Michael, Buddy, Jill and I have had a saying the past 5 years during WPPI where we would yell out “YAHTZEE” whenever we saw a “big name” photog in the hall. I mean obviously we wouldn’t scream it… but we would say it under our breath to each other whenever we passed someone we followed. Such nerds. We STILL do that to this year but this year I didn’t have anyone to say it back to me and that was honestly the only disappointing part of our trip.

The Desert With the Demos’ | Part 2

  • Sedona & The Grand Canyon

Have you ever had something on your calendar for a while and then it happens and you’re just so sad it’s over?! That’s what this trip was like for us! We have been looking forward to visiting Arizona for the longest time and we can’t believe it’s over already! Jordan and Amy took such great care of us. They are so like minded in so many aspects of their business and I just love talking through things and learning from one another. I may not use an Expo disc and I may not have filters on my lens, but other than that…

The Desert with the Demos’ | Part 1

  • The Four Seasons Scottsdale

We chatted months ago with our sweet friends Jordan and Amy Demos about coming to visit. We had never experienced Arizona and so this was a new trip for both of us! We booked flights and we anxiously awaited our “Demos Desert Tour”! The only problem was that I didn’t get all of my stuff done before flying down there. There’s always so much to do before WPPI and I just didn’t get it all accomplished before our trip. Thankfully, Jordan and Amy had tons to do as well
