Ok! Here is the promised blog post. Last Friday, a friend invited me to drive to Charlottesville (about 2.5 hours away) for a meet and greet with other photographers, along with some practice shots. I called my husband and just said "So...how would you feel if I went to Charlottesville tomorrow?" His response cracked me up: "Sure, sounds good...now why are you going?"
So, the next morning I left early, and I'm so glad I went! I got to talk with other photographers who gave me pointers, tips, and just general encouragement. Then we headed out that afternoon for a shoot. I learned SO MUCH in that afternoon, and I'm so grateful others were willing to share what they learned as I shared what I know!
