Wow where do I begin?? Better late than never though, right?
For the sake of not making this into a book I will divide this into parts. Scroll below to read about my time at the Seniors Ignite Conference.
Seniors Ignite Photography Conference//Part 1 of 3
Over Valentine's Day I had the exciting privilege of attending the 2015 Senior Ignite Conference in San Diego, California. I've been on their email list for a while and I was getting all these cool emails about this trip. I really wanted to go but didn't do anything about it. I started to read testimonials about the last trips and now I really wanted to go. But I've never traveled by myself or gone to a photography conference- I didn't know what to expect! Later I got an email that said "Hurry! 3 spots left!" I knew it was now or never so I bought my seat and booked my flight! And I was soo glad I did.
My husband dropped me off at the Dubuque airport early Valentine's Day morning. After a long and tiring morning of traveling I arrived in California and it was beautiful! Of course I was coming from negative temps and a snow storm...so anything would have been beautiful :P I planned my trip so I would have ample time to lay out before everything started. As you can see I have my priorities in check! ;)
The first event was a sunset beach shoot and this was the first time the photographers met the models and each other! The beach was just a short walk from the Loews Coronado (which was gorgeous by the way). I have never been on a beach with so many photographers before. It was crazy!! But the crowd fanned out after a while and I got some amazing images! Below are my favorites!
my ample time to lay out ;) p.s-resort food is expensive

After the sunset shoot it was hang out time at the hotel and my lovely sister came along for her own vacay! Stay tuned for what happened the next day- part 2/3!
