Escalate Live

If you would have told me that I would walk away changed, I wouldnt have believed you.
Apart from rubbing shoulders with some of the biggest wedding photographer in the industry, I was inspired, and moved.
This was so much more than a photography conference, it was a life conference.
Reminding me to not only look for the light, but to look for the beauty.
Telling me that my family is what truly matters most, and encouraging me to run my business in a way so I never have to miss a moment with them.

I walked away encouraged and inspired.
Inspired to make new art, and to have a vision!
To collaborate with my colleagues, and to lift them up just for the sake of supporting a friend.

On the way home, I sat next to a women with blonde hair, dressed nicely in a suite.
I wondered what her story was, and where she was coming from and where she was going.
With a simple comment of "wow, its pretty empty in here"
She turned to me, maybe a bit relieved from the silence and completely agreed.
We ended up talking the whole way home.

Michelle, if you are reading, I really hope you get that job!

And just because Jasmine Star told me that I should blog it,
here I am sitting in the airport, sporting my headband in a way that was new for me.
(The only picture taken of me during the trip, on my cell phone.)

You are a great photographer, but more importantly, a wonderful person. I enjoyed meeting you and sharing the Escalate experience with you.
And yes, life changing it was indeed :)
