Welcome to my Blog

Hi, I'm Julie ... artist, photographer, potter, etc. I am so happy you are here! I consider this blog my creative journal where I can share my recent work, ideas and dreams, and lots of little details about my life. Please make yourself at home. Whether you are a bride-to-be, a photographer, or just a visitor, I hope you will find inspiration here and even become a friend.

Creative :: Las Vegas, Nevada :: Red Rock Canyon

Last week I went to Las Vegas.  Every year there is a huge photography convention there called WPPI.  Until this year I had never been and I don't usually mind that much because I'm not really a Vegas person.  But then there is always that little voice inside that says "you missed out on something."  This year my friend Shannon encouraged me to go and I agreed way back in the fall before I realized how much I would have on my plate this month.  (You know, I'm planning my wedding and its only 44 days away!)  So despite all that I left behind for a week for a seemingly unnecessary trip ... I am SO glad I went.  This trip was EXACTLY what I didn't know I needed!  I won't even bother will all the photo-geeky details because I know most of you are here to see photos (or, if you're here for the contest scroll to the next post).  But I will say that I met some wonderful new friends ... had some amazing conversations ... learned from some of the best photographers in the world ... and found inspiration that I desperately needed.  With my business taking a new direction this year, my time at WPPI was extremely valuable for me.  My business aside ... the time that I spent with the following three ladies was equally as valuable. 

Thank you so much to my WPPI roomies ... we shared a room and we also shared our hearts with each other.  I will never forget the conversations, the dreaming, the laughing!

We visited Red Rock Canyon our last day there for some fun photos in the desert.  I love the desert colors and I love the desert sun light.
