Can you believe WPPI 2013 is almost here?
If you haven’t been to WPPI before, you’re going to LOVE it! A full week of learning for photographers jam packed with a three day expo with all the newest technology and photography products you can get your hands on! Lots of booths give out tons of free stuff, like tote bags, coupons, keychains, buttons, stickers, notebooks and you name it! Every year there’s something new and exciting to look out for!
The classes offered at WPPI are everything from business courses, to pricing strategies, lighting, posing, inspirational and just all around packed full of learning opportunities for everyone! Make sure you’ve signed up ahead of time for the platform classes, as they do fill up quick! You’re allowed to pre-board for 5 classes, but if there is availability during the conference, you’ll still be able to get in to some. The popular classes fill up ahead of time tho, so make sure to get your favorite! It’s probably too late for some to get in now, but if you didn’t get a class you want, make sure to get there early and line up. If there are seats available, they’ll let you in first come first served.
Put on your walking shoes cuz you’re going to be walking all day long!! It’s about a 10-15 minute walk from the lobby of the MGM to the conference halls, so make time for that when planning for your classes. Don’t forget your badge! Make sure to have that around your neck every day before you leave your hotel room because you won’t get in without it! Take a snack with you to class, along with either a notebook and pen, or your iPad. Take notes and if you do carry your camera with you, take a pic of the screen if you can’t write or type fast enough when a speaker is giving their presentation.
Bring business cards! Some classes and booths will have drawings and you’re going to meet some great new friends and you want them to remember you!
I’ll be roaming around, meeting up with old friends and meeting new friends! Please feel free to stop me, say hello and introduce yourself! I’d love to meet you all! Also watch for my “purebaby” girls! They’ll be running around with a white shirt on that says “purebaby” on the front and will be handing out coupons to the store, as well as other goodies and giveaways! Stop one and ask if you can take a pic with them, then post it on my FACEBOOK wall! I will put all entries from your photos in to a drawing and one lucky winner is going to win an AWESOME prize package from me! Make sure to post a link to your facebook page along with your photo.

I have another little secret to share with you!!!
Stop by the PEACHPIT booth#1659 and talk with them about MY NEW BOOK!!
I’m pretty excited about it and that Peachpit is publishing it! It’s going to rock your world if you are a newborn photographer, or wanting to break in to newborn photography.
This will be my third book I’ve written, but the first that is being published by an International publisher and I’m just beyond thrilled! The Peachpit team has been wonderful
to work with and such a wonderful experience all the way through. My new book is called “Natural Newborn Baby Photography” and you can find it at
It’s not listed on Peachpit just yet, but will be sometime next month. You can now pre order the book on Amazon and B&N, so get your orders in now!!
I’ve added new topics in to the new book, such as Inspiration, Style, and Storytelling. I talk about how you can find your style and find the inspiration you’re looking for. There are tons of new images and new inspirations for the aspiring and the experienced newborn photographers. You’ll probably ask me “I just bought your last book, why do I need this book?” Because it’s a new journey, a new chapter and we all need to stay inspired and refreshed, right?
Besides, with the great price, you can’t go wrong! I promise you, you’re going to love it!
Here’s a look at the cover of the book!
SEE YOU ALL IN VEGAS BABY!!!
