I just spent 4 days in Nashville at Imaging USA, a great photography convention put on by PPA (Professional Photographers of America). I opted to do a full day of hands on classes and learned a lot of new tricks and techniques. Going to IUSA was a great way to start out the new year. I not only came home with new knowledge and products (the convention floor was filled with special deals) but with a renewed sense of purpose and enthusiasm. I am so excited to put my new creative and business ideas into action. I also joined GPPA (Georgia Professional Photographers Association) while I was in Nashville. What a wonderful welcome I got! A great group of professionals with lots of exciting things going on! So 2018 is going to be a great year for Lifesong Photography! Keep checking back for more updates!
I am super excited to announce that I will be the featured artist at the Cartersville Public Library. My photography will be on display August through September with a meet the artist receptions on August 8th from 5-6pm. It would be awesome to have some of you come out and see me (especially since I have a small family). Hey! There will be free snacks...and some cool photography. There will also be a write up about the exhibition in this Sunday's edition of the Daily Tribune. Anyone who knows me, knows that I hate having my picture taken, but I am willing to make an exception since this is such an honor. But don't be surprised if I am not alone in the picture. What do I mean? I guess you will have to buy the paper to see.
A super exciting one day event will be happening next week at MarketPlace120....Gifts, Galore and More....will be this coming Tuesday April 25th from 10a - 4p. There are so many reasons to come out! First of all, there will an incredible amount of awesome gifts, many of which are one of a kind artist created. Great finds that you can stash away for later. You know it is never to early to shop for the holidays. Second there will be hourly door prize drawings for super cool items. All of the artists and vendors are donating something towards these drawings. I am personally donating one of my fine art 8x10 matted photographs...and you get to pick which one you want! Third, there will be food and come on, every one likes free food...am I right? Yes! And finally, I will be there and I will give anyone who mentions this blog post an additional 10% off! So mark your calendar and make sure you come out for this great one day event.
I am super excited about the upcoming "Picturium" at MarketPlace120 in Marietta. The show will be on all month long but the opening is this coming Saturday April 8, 2017 for 4-7p. I am not supposed to say this (but I am often rule breaker... ok not really...but sometimes) but there will be FREE WINE! and food! Yes! That should be some sort of incentive...right? So why not come to the opening? I will have some of my more provocative photography at this show. Provocative? you ask. Well, I am not a super proactive type when it comes to my photography, but I do have an edgy side. Curious? Well...come see for yourself.
Below is a flyer for the event and one of my pictures titled "Smoking Weed" Enjoy
Here I am blogging away again. This time the exciting news is about the NW Georgia Women's Expo that is going to be at the Clarence Brown Center in Cartersville this coming Saturday from 9-4. I will be part of the artesian market with a booth, a banner and all that good stuff. I am excited that I have gotten a whole bunch of samples in and I will be offering some special discounts to anyone who books a session while they are at the Expo. And if that wasn't enough good stuff, I will also have for sale not only photo gifts and cards but some of my up cycled jewelry! Right now the weatherman is saying that it is supposed to rain on Saturday, so it will be a perfect day to spend sometime indoors at the Women's Expo!
