Hey there peeps! So on Sunday I leave for my very first year at WPPI
(Wedding & Portrait Photographers International) in Las Vegas.. and let me tell you, I could not be any more excited! As you know if you are going, it’s pretty pricy, so last year it was just not possible for me…and I felt so left out reading about everyone’s adventures on Twitter
, but this year I was offered an fantastic opportunity to go, and I am sooo thankful for it!
I am rooming with some of my photog besties (Katie, Wai and Amber….LOVE YOU GIRLS!!) and I know we are just going to have a FANASTIC time together!!
So here is my insanely packed “schedule” ….but I am thinking realistically here and its more like “my list of things I would absolutely LOVE to do, but we will see how much energy this pregnant lady can muster up to pack it all in” . So, this is what I really hope to do, and I really really hope to see lots of you there! So if you see me, please stop me and say “Hi!” , I honestly am so excited to see everyone!!!!
Oh and since lots of people have asked me, no….Sean will not be there with me :/ …. Hopefully next year!!
Please be sure to leave a little note in the comment section below and let me know what you are MOST looking forword to checking out at WPPI, or if you have any first timer tips for me! xoxo!
