[b] party

I was invited to [b]ecker's party in Las Vegas during the week of WPPI. I had such a blast! Mark and I went not knowing anyone and left with some great friends. The room was filled with Professional Wedding photographer's. I was so honored to be invited. Thanks [b] for a great time! Here is our new friend Jeff LaPlante. Jeff has got to be one of the nicest people. He encouraged me to talk to people throughout the evening and gave me so much information. Thank you Jeff for being so awesome!

Here is the beautiful and talented Jessica Claire. She was launching her new brand of camera bags called Shootsac while in Vegas. Don't you just love that red hair? Gorgeous!
This is me and Jasmine. We have "talked" back and forth through the computer. It was so nice to meet her in person. Jasmine has such a genuine personality and warmth about her. Jasmine, you truly are amazing person and photograher. It was so fun finally meeting you!

The [b]school cups. These were at the door when you walked in.
This is [b]ecker taking self portraits with some of the people. Look at Mike Colon's face. Isn't it hilarious?
Then look at [b]ecker's face in this one. Goofy
I asked [b]ecker to pose GQ style.
This is my new friend Jeanie. She is so full of life and energy. We talked about going skiing/snowboarding at Whistler. She made me laugh so much.
We also had fun talking with Mason and Jennifer. They are from San Diego so we had a lot in common. Such nice people. I am bummed I didn't get a pic with them. I think they took one with their camera though.
We met Jeremy and Amaria too. They are so cute. They are expecting their first child in June. Just a really cute couple. I am bummed I didn't get a picture with them too.
---Being around such amazing photographers has really made me excited about my business. I am looking forward to where my career will take me this upcoming year. Thanks again [b] for a great party. See you in April.

These are some pictures at the Bellagio. I was really bummed because the weather in Vegas was so windy and cold. My plans of walking along the strip to get some cool pics were pretty much ruined by the weather. Oh well.

We had a great time in Vegas. Just nice to get away for a day to ourselves with Aiden. Now, back to reality and my day job tomorrow.
