career fair - knoxville, TN photobooth, newborn photographer

the giggleBOOTH - check it out!

yes me. career fair invitation?!?!? whhhhhhat! can you believe it. i can't but i am so excited. one of two speakers. 35 minutes of me getting to talk with 7th and 8th graders about the amazingness of being a photographer. of the joy it brings. talking to them about following their passion no matter how scary. choosing a goal and following it. getting to share with them what i wish i would have done differently or even what i would have loved to know in the 7th grade [no i won't tell them that wall bangs are a bad idea]. oh goodness do you think these kids are ready for a blubbering 31 year old lady talking about how much she loves capturing beautiful moments in peoples lives?!?!? does anyone want to start a poll of how long it will take before i start crying?

so if you were speaking at a 7th and 8th grade career fair what would you bring for the students? hhmmmm i want to be cool for sure. candy? no i think that is like against school policy, a stranger bearing candy. hhmm maybe i will set up a fun photo booth and let them have their portrait taken with friends! Dumb?!? i will have to keep thinking.

oh and this is random but what is a blog post without a photo! as you may know i shoot a TON of senior portraits and love it. so I will leave you with a few teen shots from this last week





have a lovely Monday

I want to be you...seriously!! Your job sounds like so much fun, and I am crazy in love with the way you photograph. I just hope I can get my head around photography well enough to be able to take some decent shots!

A photobooth sounds like a seriously cool idea...I think the kids would love it!

As a teacher who watched part of your presentation, you were able to convey to our students your love for photography and for the innumerable career possibilities. Thanks so much for speaking with our kids. I have several students who have already expressed an interest in photography and in graphic design and multimedia productions... You only solidified that interest.
