What If Conference: Portland edition

Oh my…where to start explaining the What If Conference? When Tim and I attended the very first one back in Cabo san Lucas this past January, we had no idea what to expect. We got our worlds rocked and came home with a new group of lifelong friends. Needless to say, we were PUMPED to fly out to Portland, Oregon last week to be a part of the second What If! We were privileged to share a little bit of our journey with the group as well, and heard from incredible photographers + artists like Justin & Mary, Samm Blake, Anne Sage, Liz Forkin Bohannon, Fer Jurasti, and of course Jen and Steve Bebb. If you are a photographer, we can’t recommend this experience enough. We push each other, encourage each other, cry and laugh and dance together, learn to push through uncomfortableness and fears, and learn how to be more creative businesspeople. Signups have already started for What If 2013, being held in the Dominican Republic in late January – early Feb 2013, and there’s only 100 seats this time. Get in quick ๐Ÿ™‚ We didn’t use our real cameras that much when we were out there (except for a shoot with Richelle and Eric, which we’ll post later!) so most of these photos are from our handy iPhones ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks Jenn and Dave Stark for the photos of us talking ๐Ÿ™‚

Dear Canadian friends…

The Jupiter Hotel was the perfect place to host a group of creatives from all across the world…

Michael is pretty much a professional photobomber.

Morning coffee runs are a must in the Pacific Northwest.

The amazing Sseiko Designs sandals – they send Ugandan girls to college and are so cute. (Bridesmaid gift, anyone?!)

 

So…what are you waiting for? Come join us in winter 2013! ๐Ÿ™‚
