I wanted to share a recent photo I entered in to the NAPCP International Image Competition. I received an Honorable Mention on this darling photo of Nora. It’s always so much fun photographing a two-year old! She was full of giggles and fun that day, but to get her to sit still was a challenge. My daughter, Beckie was helping me and she decided to go get Nora an ice cream cone to settle her. We put her hair up in pigtails and plopped her down on the bed in her penguin pajamas (everyone knows I have a love for penguins and peppermint ice cream), as I captured this split moment after one taste as she sat and checked out the little peppermints, realizing how delicious it was, pondering about her quest to indulge in the best ice cream on the planet!
I love two-year-olds. xo

I was so excited to photograph a such a gorgeous mommy-to-be. Her beauty just radiants with her unborn child.
I love keeping everything natural and simple with my maternity portraits.
I love incorporating older siblings in to maternity sessions! Ben wasn’t quite sure he wanted his photo taken, but he loved touching mommy’s belly.

Hey everyone! You’re probably wondering why I haven’t blogged in so long!! Well, I’ve been so very busy with client work, traveling, new website, branding and new book!! This is my official announcement of everything! haha! I’m headed to LA tomorrow for my last workshop of the year! I’m pretty excited…I love LA! So many things to do and friends to see!!
Without further ado….My new website is up and running now!! You can go to it at robinlong.com It’s so awesome and I’m so in love with it!! For now, you’ll have to put up with this blog…but my new blog should be ready in a couple weeks!! Yea!!
Would love for you to leave comments on what you think!!
Next up is my NEW BOOK!!
Yea, I have been working on this for the past year, with the past six months of 24/7 hardly doing anything else and I’m so excited it’s being release June 24, 2013, so mark your calendars!!! You can find how to order it here. If you’re interested in the autographed book by me, which really, why do you need an autographed book, but it seems all the other authors are doing this, so I figured why not. You can follow the link on my site and order it from my store. If you would like the un-autographed book, you can order from Peachpit (my awesome publisher), Amazon or Barnes and Noble. I’m completely humbled being published and I hope you all enjoy the book. Your love and support means the world to me. xo

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.
Where you can find me
- Tues Mar 12 – ProDPI Booth Speaking Spot @ 3:00pm
- Wed Mar 13 – Master Class “The Newborn Niche” – 11:30am – 1:30pm (I’m sorry, this is sold out!)
