It's my favorite time of year when I get to go through everything that was shot over the past year and gather all of my favorite photos to be featured in mine and Justin's "best of" portfolios! This is an overwhelming task and one that gets me all choked up with emotion by the AMAZING clientele Justin and I have had sweet pleasure of working with...SERIOUSLY, mine & Justin's hearts are full of gratitude towards these people for allowing us to continue our art and ABSOLUTELY LOVE what we do!!!

Over the next few weeks I'll be featuring the best of engagements, the best of weddings, and the best of ring shots!

First up is the BEST OF 2011 PORTRAITS! Since I was pregnant for most of 2011 I wasn't able to blog many of these portrait sessions due to energy and time constraints, so I'm super duper excited to at least show of my favorites from each one. Thank you to my portrait clients, I love all of you!:) Enjoy!
Stay posted for the best of engagements, weddings, and rings!

WHAT If New100.png
Did you know about the upcoming What If Conference?! If not, be informed. This is about to be one of the best, most uplifting, positive, challenging business/photography related conferences available!

My amazing husband Justin has been invited to speak and attend as an innovator at the What If Conference January 23rd-26th. He's been invited to consult and share his thoughts, ideas, and experiences with those in attendance. Since Justin is both a photographer and a successful producer, he has much to impart and a unique background. There have been so many times in his career when he's had to think about the very question: WHAT IF?! What if he never took leaps of faith? What if he didn't follow his dreams in producing? What if he was too scared to face the unknown? What if he listened to what others thought about his passions? What if he let go of all his inhibitions, with a full face forward and let the amazing things life has to offer come his way? WHAT IF?

Ever since I've known Justin, he's had a "streak of luck". He always gets the best parking spot in a busy parking lot, he always seems to be meeting the right people he needs to for producing, and he always has a positive outlook on life because of it. In fact, anyone that knows him can say that he always happens to be in the right place at the right time to get exactly what he wants! I can vouch that this "lucky streak" is not luck at all, it's Justin creating that luck, being brave and basically barging his way into life's opportunities. Again, it's that "what if" in his mind that he is constantly living by and has brought him much success in life (that's how he won my heart over when we first met). 
Interested in attending this conference? There is still time to sign up and reserve your spot!!! Plus, this conference is ridiculously affordable! Click here for details!

I'm super excited for him to share all that he has learned over the past decade and the value of asking himself WHAT IF? Here is what the What If team has had to say about him:

Justin is the consummate business-creative. Working in two very competitive fields, and finding success in both, Justin knows first hand the value of hard work. He will be sharing tips and tricks for a successful CREATIVE BUSINESS, tools for building that business while maintaining your creativity, and how to stay the course when the going gets tough.

Wow Amelia! Awesome writing about Justin and his What if approach. I have definitely seen him in action and it's awesome how he just goes after what he wants. Just got me so inspired to think more this way. I'm sure this will be a super rad conference for anyone who goes will take so much away from it.
