Last week was one of my favorite weeks of the entire year….WPPI Las Vegas!!!! 🙂  My mom and I had a BLAST at the convention.

On our first night, we were cool kids and went to Hakkasan!!!  We met some fun new photographer friends and danced the night away in the VERY croweded club!

Day two started with a window selfie (becuase we all need a good selfie every once in a while.)

We saw some amazing speakers, my mom won an iPad, and one of my prints scored high enough to be hung in the print gallery at the convention!!! (I’m rollin with the big boys now!)

We had a blast learning new things, walking the convention floor, running into friends, and buying new toys!!!!  My mom and I got to go to my favorite restuarnt, Texas de Brazil, with Misty and Scott, where I possibly ate my WEIGHT in meat….and of course, no trip to Vegas is complete until you watch the fountains at Belagio.

As any good professional photographer does at WPPI, I hauled along my professional camera….but I slacked off and only took pictures with my iphone.  Honestly, I wasn’t the only one and it’s quite a funny site to see a ton of professionals using their iphones instead of their cameras….but I guess we all need a break sometimes! 🙂  Below are some of my instagram and phone pics from WPPI 2014! Can’t wait for next year! Knowledge is power!!!!
