There are many elements to life that equate to happiness. My children, family, experiences, accomplishments, friends, food, sleep. The list goes on. But my favorite kind of happiness is simply a truly bonfiable genuine connection with another human being. Your kids come with it built in, you meet it in your future husband for the first time, and sometimes if you are lucky, you will find it in other friends or colleagues. Not just a trivial, networking–on the surface connection. But something much more than that. I value a true and meaningful connection more than most things on my happiness radar. It’s not easy to do and very hard to find.
This group, or rather as one member said it best, this TRIBE is so FULL of connections and on so many levels that is sends my personal happiness radar off the map. I won’t bore anyone of our stories of laughter, randomness, epic think tanks, classes taught by one (all) of our own, amazing photo opportunities, or just plain old inappropriate–good for the soul—discussions. I won’t bore you with that at all.
BUT, if you are a photographer (like me 4 years ago) on the verge of deciding vs hobby or pro….you must I repeat MUST attend a Blue Lily Go Pro Seminar. It really will change your life. And we might even let you into the tribe when you are done. 🙂
Here is a look back at my 4th workshop with the Lilies. This year was in Las Vegas, NV.
Thanks to my friends for capturing my perpetual smirk that doesn’t seem to change much. I should work on that. I also have perpetual fly aways, my harness upside down (my apologies to hold fast gear) and my inability to recognize spatial awareness (aka the bandaid photos). Good times.
Thanks to Wendy of Blue Lily, Miranda Stratford of M. Shanti Photo,Kelly of Pear Tree Photography, and Alicia of Gray Wren Photography—- for making me feel awesome and enjoying 2nd of our shoot!
