For years I’ve heard only wonderful things about the Showit United Conference, a 4-day event in Arizona dedicated to supporting the photography community with invaluable education and hands-on training. This year I had the opportunity to attend as a styled shoot instructor and although I was over eight months pregnant, there was no way I was going to miss this! I’m so thankful I made the trip from Vermont because I left Arizona with new friendships, a fresh perspective and great feelings of inspiration!
Our “Natural Desert Romance” styled shoot kicked off bright and early! We all indulged in some coffee and then geared up to photograph a whole lotta beauty. We challenged ourselves as creatives, stepped outside of our comfort zones and encouraged one another to grow. I also may or may not have scaled an aggressive hill and collided with a very unfriendly cactus, but all was worth it for the unforgettable experience!
Thank you so much to everyone who participated in this event. When I reached out to the Arizona creative community to seek partnerships for this styled shoot, I was in awe of the warm and welcoming response I immediately received. These wonderful folks expressed so much excitement in this collaboration and worked hard to bring my vision to life. I look forward to returning to Arizona next year and reconnecting with all of these creative business owners!
