Day 8: A day in the life of a photographer

Awe… Sunday. The day of rest. This is usually the day I back up my files from my wedding photography but in the winter there are not a lot of winter weddings. Although if you know someone who wants a snow wedding send them my way! I have been dying to do a wedding shoot in the snow. I think that would be so awesome even if my fingers would be stuck to the camera buttons. So today I spend most of the day working on my website. You would be shocked at all the things you have to do to keep your website working for you between getting reviews, blogging, updating content, reviewing your google analytics to see where your customers are coming from and how to better reflect that in your marketing goals. There is so much unseen to do that clients aren’t even aware of when the consider your service. I didn’t even pick up my camera today so since I have no images to post I thought I would post this video from a training class I took a couple of years ago for fun. I am going to a big photography convention next week in New Orleans which I can’t WAIT to go. I am going with my best friend and fellow photographer Julie. You will see her in here shooting and planking as well and a new friend we met there when we went Trista (another fabulous photographer). This year it will be Julie and myself and two more fabulous photographers I have had the privilege to work with over the years. Liz who is one of my lead photographers and Amanda who was a lead photographer with me and started her own business a couple of years ago. Should be a FUN week!

Also, here are some fun images from some of the projects and games we played.  You will notice some pictures of planking but I will tell you it was invented long before it came here.  This was in 2009 if that tells you anything!  We called it the laying down game and it was hilarious playing it with all those photographers. The other project was to find the alphabet in our environment.  I didn’t put the whole alphabet but see if you can guess what letters these photos represent.
