Wowza, baby B sure liked the yummy cake his mommy bought!  I must say though, the cake wasn’t the real treat in these pictures….he is!  I’ve never met such a sweet, smiley, happy little guy!  He made my job SO easy with tons of smiles, eye contact and the true test of a successful cake smash photo shoot would of course be the cake smashing….and boy did he ever enjoy it!  Thanks for letting me document this time for your family.

Escalate 2010

So I went to my first photography convention this past week and it was so much fun!  The speakers blew my mind, especially Jerry Ghionis, whom I never really heard of before my trip.  I have been blog stalking some of the other speakers for a long time, so nothing surprised my about their awesomeness except how totally open they were to hanging around the lobby, talking with everyone, answering questions, etc.  I am so impressed at how collaborative the photography community seems to be.  It makes for much a nicer experience when ‘so called’ competitors become colleagues.  I am so truly inspired from my trip, not just creatively but also on a personal level to continue to work on being the best that I can be in all areas of my life.  It is amazing what we can all accomplish with the right attitude. :)

Here’s a shout out to the wonderful photogs I met while there.  Thank you for being so sweet, it was wonderful to get to know you and I look forward to staying in touch and watching what is to come for all of us!
