I am incredibly excited to share that I have been asked to present 2 keynote presentations on birth photography at this year's Baby Summit!
I am so passionate about sharing my knowledge and am so grateful to have been offered a chance to speak at such an amazing event.
2017 will be my 4th baby summit, in 2015 I attended the very 1st Baby Summit and was totally blown away, it was my 1st workshop I had ever attended and it truly did change my life.
I left inspired, motivated and so grateful that so many amazing photographers and artists were willing to share so freely what made them unique, what drives them and what inspires them.
In 2016 I was all ready to book my place again and then decided I would see if I could actually be part of the baby summit crew, so I emailed the organisers and asked if they needed any more volunteers, boy am I glad I did that, I thought I gained a lot from attending TBS in 2015, wow what I got from volunteering was even more, the organisers are such amazing humans, wish we had more people like them in this world, and the other volunteers - wow, now I have this huge family of TBS sisters and brothers, I feel so lucky. And if that was not enough I then was given the opportunity to travel to the USA to volunteer at The Baby Summit Atlanta (and even got to have a little side adventure of a lifetime in NY on the way!).
I was pretty excited at the prospect of donning my "white shirt" for a 3rd time as a volunteer for 2017, and then at the end of last year I received an email asking me (little old me!) if I would speak, share my passion and my knowledge. Of course I said yes, no hesitation, might have wet my pants a little!
So I hope I still get a chance to put on the white shirt and run around behind the scenes (great way to lose weight!), I have 2 exciting classes I am working on, something a bit different for one of them, hope I do it justice and can contribute to other people feeling the same way I did when I left my 1st baby summit!
So if you know someone that is a photographer, at any stage of their career, tell them about the baby summit, tell them they should do it, they will not regret it.
Hope to see you there, come up and get a hug, share a wine and have a boogie, that is such a big part of TBS! Bring on August!
