My experience with the Click Away Conference, hosted by Clickin Moms, was both scary (in a good way) and exciting! I don’t get to get out much with the two little ones at home, and my time with them is important. And And although I missed them terribly, I barely had anytime to think. With all the classes, photo walks (lots of them), outdoor excursions, parties and I could go on and on…

    Did I mention there was a LOT of walking!!?

    There were so many attendees and so much going on that it was a bonus to make new friends. Getting to pick some of the CMpros brains was a bonus. The time I had here was so invaluable. I really did take away so much more than I could expect. It wasn’t just about new tricks of the trade, or how to pose him/her or getting that child to laugh. Not to me, to me it was so much more. It was about realizing who I am as an individual, and as an artist. Its about what I want out my life, and what I want to put out there.

    Over the last year, I have rebranded and listened and worried over what others have thought is best for me. I have changed my pricing, gone back and forth with what I want to shoot, trying to figure out what was right! I wasn’t really listening to the voice inside me, telling ME what I need to do.

    So with that said, I will be making changes AGAIN! So I apologize in advance.Β  My work from now on will be a true reflection of who I am as a person. I am working hard to put this into practice and I will be announcing all the changes within the month. My Showit site will also be going away and I will move strictly into the ProPhoto blog/site!

    I hope you will continue to support my artistry and I want to give a huge shout out to all the organizers, speakers and anyone else that made Click Away such an amazing experience.

    Our outdoor excursion to Silver Lake hit a little bump when our bus broke down.

    But at least we were surrounded by a beautiful setting.

    Ended it with a great dinner at a local stop called Squatters Pub. I highly recommend it. The artwork throughout this

    place was equally great!

    Then it was time to leave and head back home. I had miss my babies so much, but I was just as sad

    to be done with Click Away… but all good things must come to an end, to make

    room for better things!:)Thanks for reading.

      Maryrose - I love all the photos you took – such great textures and lines. Click Away was such a great experience for me too. I walked away wanting to make personal and professional changes too. :) Can’t wait to see what’s in store for you!ReplyCancel

    What can I say about this little darling. I had the privilege of photographing him when he was still in his mama’s womb, after and now he is ONE years old. Time really flies so fast. He has gotten so big and is the sweetest child. His smile will melt your heart. So I hope you enjoy these photos and the little cake-filled fingers and toes.:D

      Misty Murph - Hello,

      I could not find your price list on your website. My husband is overseas military and will be home from 20 Dec to 12 January. Could you please send me pricing and availability during that time. Thank you.

    When Mandy contacted me, I was so excited. Let me say why. Mandy is a photographer (Check her out here) who moved to Charlotte and will be moving to Mooresville in less than a month. She is also a photographer and our daughters are the same age with similar names. I am so happy she asked me to photograph her gorgeous family, and I had a blast doing it and getting to know her. I hope you like the images and you may see more from time to time, especially when we get the littles’ together for the summer for playdates:)

    Cheers! Here’s to making new friends!

    I am so excited to take my first ever trip to Salt Lake City, UT to the Clickin Moms Click Away conference! This is also my first time going to anything like this as I missed the WPPI this year! I hope to learn so much and make lots of new friends. Will be sharing more as I get closer to my travel date! Are you going too? Let me know and we can make sure we meet while we are there! Looking forward to it!

    I had an amazing time photographing Brianna for her senior pictures. I was so excited when her mom contacted me and told me she wanted to do these in downtown Mooresville. I mean its where I live afterall, so I am quite familiar with all that this town has to offer for photographic opportunities. Photographing seniors is not something I specialize in but I think I could after this one. Being a mom to an 18 year old myself, reminds me how fast our sweet little ones grow up. And my belied has always been that pictures are the way to remember the best of times. I hope you enjoy!
