This time last year Joe and I headed off to Las Vegas for WPPI. I was SO excited to go…. and SO nervous about meeting other photogs and the events to happen. Either that went out the window when I met Zach & Jody while checking in…. or I was more excited than nervous
A few weeks before heading down there another photographer posted in a Facebook group that she wanted to do a mini type session with other photogs to get to know them. I JUMPED at the opportunity since I needed some photos of me for my site. This shoot started at 8am…. 8 is SO early in Vegas. Don’t know if you know that. So early (and I’m not a morning person to begin with) that I almost cancelled that morning. SO glad I didn’t!! Not only do I love the images (have them on my site, FB, even my family has them on their refrigerators) but Karen has become such a good friend! And her husband too, so glad he is coming to Vegas this year! The 20 minute session together just was not enough. I wanted to get to know her better. Thankfully social networking, a trip to Cali and singing made up songs to each other over Heytell have allowed me to get to know her, and call her a dear friend.
All of that started from her reaching out (I know she was nervous about it) and offering her time to other photographers. And now… I feel like it’s my turn to pay it forward. If all of that could happen from 20 minutes together…. what could happen if I offered 90 minutes with 2 photographers? I’m not sure, but I’m will to try and see what will happen!
I have Monday (the 20th) morning and Wednesday (the 22nd) morning available and I want to spend some time with other photogs.
