Adorable Mason and Logan

We had a blast photographing these little guys yesterday. Mason has been one of my favorite clients and he now has a new baby brother. Cuteness obviously runs in this family!

PP of WV

This weekend I had the opportunity to go to the Professional Photographers of WV's convention. It was so fun to hang out with my WV friends and hear some great speakers as well. I really enjoyed meeting David Schwartz from Springfield, VA and his buddies Sam Hughes two very talented wedding photographers.

I also learned a ton listening to Dave Junion's program on photographing high school seniors. Dave is a very energetic and creative individual whose work is so inspiring.

Perhaps the best part of the weekend was hanging out with two of my very best friends, Cheryl Campbell and Becky Homich. I love you both!

Craftsman Degrees

If you follow our blog you know that Tamar and I recently attended Imaging USA, a.k.a. the Professional Photographers of America's annual convention. While we were there we received our Photographic Craftsman Degrees. This is a degree earned by teaching photography to other professional photographers at PPA affiliate organizations. Tamar and I have been traveling around the country for the past two years giving programs on marketing, thus earning the merits required for this degree.

What does this mean to you, as a client? It shows you our dedication to the profession of photography. While photography is a hobby on the weekend for some people, it is a career and passion that we not only continue to study ourselves, but also share what we have learned to help other professional photographers as well.

So when you see our awards and degrees, know this: we are competing, studying and teaching photography because we want to rise to the top of this profession. We are not content to sit back on our knowlege that we possess today, but we strive to continually grow and become more creative so that our images will be powerful and unforgettable.
