Last week I was on vacation. I didn’t GO on vacation, but I was on one… or whatever it is we want to call it – I was a way at a photography conference, which to me is like being on vacation – it was in San Diego, a lovely city, with a beach, restaurants, many tourist attractions, but all I really cared about was the photography conference…to me,  it was just like being at “art camp” for two days, there were lectures, conversations, meals, presentation, partying, and just talking photography … seriously geeky, and all the way fun! And besides, a chance to get a way , AWAY, for a couple of days – thanks to my husband, kid-sitter, sister in law and friend…it does take a village to get away from the village!  So of course I had to do this –  my bed at the Hard Rock Hotel, like I have done over the years

On the last day, before heading home, I had the opportunity to  participate in a workshop lead by Sara France, an awesome San Diego wedding photographer – we went to a local pizzeria for a demonstration… we were about 15 photographers, and even though Sara France recommended we  watch and listen and not shoot while she taught, no one could resisted shooting the cute couple who modeled for us( who also HAPPENS to be a cute photographer couple…Tracy Moore)  Even I couldn’t resist, even though I always feel weird when 15 other photographers are shooting the SAME thing… This is what I got….
