Imaging USA 2018
***all images on this post were taken with my phone*** I didn't break out my big girl camera there was too much walking around involved.
So you may have been wondering what I’ve been up to lately! I have been super busy photographing new little babies who all want to stay off the internet! I am more than willing to keep images private upon the request of the parents. I know it appears I’ve been slow but rest assured I have been getting my baby fix!
The other reason’s why I haven’t been around much would be my Affiliations have been taking up some of my time. I have been super involved with PPARI as of late and have helped revamp their website and membership management. I recently joined the PPANE board and we have been making so many amazing changes to the association. I am so excited to be teaching a full day PPA continuing Edu class for PPANE and you can find more info on that here.
Many of my return clients know that I am a huge believer in continuing my education with photography. Even though I now teach other photographers, there will always be things to learn to hone my craft. My background includes formal school training as well as many workshops and group classes.

Every year I look in my Professional photographer’s mag and see this amazing week-long adventure that has about 10,000 photographers in attendance. Every year I say yea This year I’ll go. Every year things come up and life happens I’m blessed with amazing clients and I can’t free up the time, or find someone to watch my kids. This year I made it happen. The convention was held in Nashville Tn. At the grand Opry Land Hotel. This place is insanity! It is an enclosed atrium style with its own city streets inside!
I headed in early and caught a pre-convention class from one of the photographers I’ve been following forever and learned some invaluable posing tips. Each morning was filled with classes and meetings, seeing old friends and making new ones. Lots of early bed times and truly feeling exhausted from all the knowledge I soaked up. Also, the aspiration to teach on this scale. Can we say Bailey Fox on the main stage for 2020? I’m working on it! 😉
While it was tough being away from my business for a whole week, and my kiddos. The trip was well worth it and exactly what I needed to be pumped for a great 2018. Honestly It was nice being away and just being me for a whole week … some times mom needs a break!
But Bailey you seem to have been MIA lately… way more than just a week! What else is up? – you ask….
I’ve also been working on my CPP which is more than just my certification which I received at photography school but a certification that is backed by the largest and oldest professional photography association in the USA. I passed my written test with an 88 which is actually very, very good. I am submitting my images for review in the next coming weeks.
