I'm not sure how to go about describing my WPPI experience this year. To start off, most of my time was spent at the Signature hotel as my website company, Showit, held their own 3 day conference there called Showit United. Each class was so helpful, and I came away ready to work! But the best part was definitely the people. There was always someone hanging out in the lobby or ready to sit down and chat. It was definitely an experience I don't want to miss again, so no more skipping years for me!
The sun rising over the clouds bright and early Monday morning!
One of my roommates has an aunt in the hotel industry, so we were upgraded to the spa suite!
Complete with chocolate covered strawberries and a handwritten note!
Monday night was spent with my fellow Showiteers praising God and listening to preaching. So contrary to our location and an amazing way to start everything off!
Yes, I always get a picture when I see Jasmine Star. She has been such an inspiration to me over the years, and I can't wait to see her and her husband, JD, again later this month!
Just love Zach and Jody for their evident love for each other, God, and their clients!
Yes, I'll freely admit to drinking the Showit water. In this case, it was many bottles of Pellegrino!
If the bathrooms looked this great, guess how swanky the rest of the hotel was!
Showiteers hanging out having a late night dinner at Diego's.
Showiteers sharing their sense of fun and joy with the rest of the WPPI crowd by staging a flash mob in between classes!
Because the only time I saw my roommates was right before bed each night, we grabbed a few minutes in between classes for a roomie picture. This was our "awkward" one!
Sarah and I met way back in 2007 at a photography course and sorta kept in touch over the years. It was so fun seeing her again in person! Thanks to Tori for the next two pictures!
My favorite graphic designer, Promise was so sweet to take a picture with me right before leaving to go home!
She talks and he listens. Attending Justin & Mary's platform talk was such a blessing! I took pages of notes and saw my business in a whole new light! And to top it all off, I had been wanting to order some equipment from Adorama at the tradeshow and had to forego it as I didn't want to be late for the talk. Providentially, J&M picked me to win an Adorama giftcard!
