Personality? hmmm

So here I am in Vegas. I just finished the After Dark Education photography convention and learned too much and now want to purchase a million things. One thing that was drilled into my head is that it's lame to JUST post photos on your blog and that you need to give your blog a personality. I always figured my blog posting style of little to no writing was awesome because I hate reading, so why on earth would I subject my followers to reading? I suppose my new philosophy will be, if you want to read the crap that I write... awesome! if you don't... then don't bother reading. Just skip the text and look at the portraits.

Sadly, I have no portraits to post today (I'm not on my computer so all my images are still on a CF card in my camera. But let me tell you, the next few posts will be some pretty different pictures. You see, After Dark Education is a convention where you learn by doing, so I took a lot of pictures in my classes so I could learn new and different techniques or just get some more practice on some stuff I already know. The models they provided for us are crazy! One of them had silver metallic lipstick and was wearing some Alice in wonderland reject outfit! They're pretty cool and I'm excited to share them with you.

Tomorrow I am heading over to the other side of the Vegas strip to WPPI. It's the big wedding convention they have every year. What dose it stand for? hmm. I have no clue, Wedding Professional Photographers International?? That's my best guess. I'm sure you could google it and find out if you really care. I'm really excited to attend though. I've been wanting to go for a while now and so I hope it lives up to my expectations. I want to start focusing more on weddings. I am so excited because I bought a booth at the AZ Bridal Expo!!! June 12th everyone! I am already working like mad to create the coolest booth ever but if you have any ideas or suggestions, I'd love to hear them. I'm sure you will be hearing much much more about the Bridal Expo the closer it gets.

In other news, I miss my hubby Nate like crazy. I tried to convince him to come to Vegas with me, but he's working hard applying to grad school (I hope we end up going to ASU so we can be back in the Phoenix Valley!) so he didn't think it'd be practical to come. Gosh Darn practicality. I did buy him a set of Las Vegas playing cards though. Don't tell him! (Nate never reads my blog so I feel it's safe to post).

Man, this turned from trying to type a little somthin to a journal entry.... sorry about that. I've gotta work on my blogging skills. Hopefully I'll improve with practice. For all of you that took time to read this, thank you. For those who didn't, thanks for stopping by the blog anyway. Until next time folks


  1. I look forward to seeing your photos you took at the convention! Plus any tips you learned.
    Personality is hard to convey in a blog. You will work it out! (I am still working on mine. :D)

  2. Don't apologize, its fun to read too ;) Sounds like you're doing really well. I had a friend who's starting her photography business come by and "show me the ropes" but ended up confusing me! Sounds like photography takes a lot of work, but I still want to try!

  3. I love your writing and your pictures! It's so exciting for me to see and hear about all you are doing! A booth at the bridal expo sounds great. I'm sure your creativity will shine through and attract people to you.
