Wedding & Portrait Photographers International... WPPI was worth it!

There are only a few must-attend conferences a year for wedding and portrait photographers. One of them is WPPI. It always takes place in Vegas...and I've heard it's always a week full of inspiration, revitalization, networking and valuable experiences.

This year marked the first time I attended WPPI. AND it marked the first time I ever set my size 10 foot into Sin City. I learned several things during the 6 days I was there. Many of the lessons won't mean a thing to anyone else but me. They were lessons in internal growth. Some I will share as time goes.

I can't exactly say I came home refreshed since I felt utterly exhausted for a good week after I got back to Kansas City. But I can say I returned with a new fire in my gut to do what I love to do, and to do it well.

One thing I did while there was participate in a shoot out...in the desert!! (I did a teaser post about this a few weeks ago)....Here are some images that I took...of a beautiful model named Anna Lake. The other info about the event is:

The couch was cool...the middle cushion needs to be fluffed up a bit. Should had mom go with you she could have "plupped" up the pillow a bit.
