I love the beginning of each new year, January and Febraury are the months I look back and the things we accomplished in the previous year, and areas of improvement and build our goals for the upcoming year. I just got back from Imaging USA, which is a huge Professional Photographers of America of annual conference. The classes, tradeshow, and people I met where amazing. One of the best things about it was the location. It was in New Orleans this year, which is my favorite city in the US. I lived there for about 6 months, met my husband David there, and have some lifelong friends there as well. One afternoon I walked around the Marigny area and just took some time to "see". It was a totally overcast day with flat natural light which was ok because there were no shadows and you could see the detail in everything. I could wander around there forever seeing just taking in the atmosphere. Here's a little bit of the scene that I saw that day, and you'll be seeing lots of new things from us in 2012, I can't wait!
