The White Sparrow Barn: Styled Shoots Across America Conference

Last month, I had the amazing experience of attending my first photography conference. This conference, in Quinlan Texas, took place at the world famous White Sparrow Barn. Decked from head to toe in white, this barn truly was a vision in white. I'm do impressed with the thought that went into the venue itself. I'm even more impressed, however, with the thought that went into the conference. Heather Benge, of Heather Benge Events, put her heart and soul into this. We had the most amazing speaker and, as you'll see, the most amazing details to capture in the styled shoots. Honestly, this conference was a game changer for me. As a graduate student, I've had to place photographer on the back burner quite a bit. I only take on a little, so that I can handle it, and I often lag behind my colleagues on marketing and just getting out and shooting in general. This conference left me asking myself two questions: "What is my purpose in photography?" and "What do I need to do in order to shift my business in the direction it wants to go?" Luckily, I was asking these questions, but I also got answers from these amazing speakers. I now have a game plan, and I hope you will all see a lot more of me in the future because of it. Photography is hard! But, seeing so many couples find love and seek to capture their love is totally worth it. So, without further ado, let me show you some of the conference.
