Bittersweet that the +Nikon USA Ambassador Summit draws to a close. Loved spending time with all these talented & inspiring people. A huge thank you to +Mike Corrado for putting this spectacular event together - it really was incredible.

Kicking off the first day of the #WPPI2015 Expo with Mimosa Monday at 10am at the +Nations Photo Lab Booth #1243 - they have kitted the whole section out, complete with a Prize Wheel and tons of free goodies (including my Posing Playbook) and Mimosas, and/or OJ's, to start things off right. Or at least with the option of fizzy.

And 3pm today is the exceptional +Nikon USA Work. Live. Succeed. event, where I join my fellow Nikon Ambassadors +Bambi Cantrell  and +DIXIE DIXON at Nikon Theater, #721, in a very cool women's forum moderated by +Melissa Niu. We'll cover making a successful career in this industry work, along with balancing a personal life and family, from three different points of view. It will be a very honest and detailed discussion, with time for Q&A - come join us then.

From yesterday's repeat Snow Day.
If you can't beat it, might as well (happily) photograph in it.
Photographed with the +Nikon USA D4S, 70-200 2.8.

Had to bring the kids into the studio today for a few hours - and they did a terrific job reinforcing my belief that work/life balance works best when they are not literally trying to balance ON you while you're trying to work.

We are halfway through the first day of the inaugural 2-day +Nikon USA Ambassador Summit in New York. It's been quite a day so far, surrounded by some incredibly talented people, a rather fantastic energy and a lot of heart for this industry - photography and filmmaking. I'm quite grateful to be a part of it.

That was too cute +Tamara Lackey   You make it so fun.  I think that is a special gift you have.  As a grown up I wanted to do those poses too.  Thanks for sharing.

I'm speaking at +Profoto at 12pm today at #WPPI2015 about their brand new B2 lighting kit, which I've been shooting with for months now and have been loving. They just were announced here at the show - they are super lightweight, portable, and powerful. This is exactly how I use them to make a photo shoot work on a VERY cold and dreary day:

Brand new -> the article I just wrote for +Nikon USA Learn & Explore, on when center composition can elevate a portrait. 
Plus, a beautiful little fairy with some fabulous attitude.
