Keynote: The Great Reconciliation -Vanessa Joy-Sponsored by H&H Color Lab
Vanessa Joy is Sponsored by H&H

The expectations of work life balance equilibrium can drive us mad. Are we spending enough time with family and friends? Are we loving our work just a little too much? Can we find a balance that makes everyone happy? The goal of a 50/50 split in the work-life divorce isn't all it's cracked up to be, and perhaps peace and fulfillment lies in getting them back together.

How to Edit those "Throw Away" photos
In this breakout we will take 2-3 key images which we would typically flag as “throw-aways” and teach you how to edit with confidence! Harsh direct light, over exposed or low lit reception with the ISO you pushed maybe *a little* too high, there’s a way to edit these photos! We’ll go over a handful of tips and tricks (other than just throwing a B+W filter on ‘em!) That will leave you walking away knowing that even if in-camera the settings weren’t your best, your final gallery will be a gallery you’re proud of IN FULL.

Create Consistent Content and Turn Lurkers into Clients
As a business owner, you likely feel like you never have enough time to get it all done. Coming up with the ideas, administrative tasks, financials, shoots, editing, gallery delivery, client/customer communication, not to mention your life outside of work ... who has time for marketing?

And yet, marketing is key for getting new faces through your door, and one of the greatest ways to market yourself is through free to low-cost content marketing.

The only problem? Staying consistent is a struggle, and very quickly it comes down to two choices: 1) Post if and when you can, or 2) spend all your time creating content. Neither is ideal, and honestly, both are more harmful than helpful.

Luckily, there IS a better way, and it's absolutely possible to get consistent without it taking up all of your time. I've taught over 100 women my signature system for doing just that, and they've been able to create new streams of income, spend more time with their families, and see their bottom line increase because of it.

Takeaways:
1) Learn the 2 things your content MUST have in order to grow your business.
2) Get off the content creation hamster wheel in 3 steps.
3) Free up time in your business, and grow a deeper connection with your audience, all while growing your clientele base.

You are the CEO (so act like it!)
If you have a business then you are the CEO and it is time to start acting like it! There is an enormous difference between running your own business and letting it run you and yet, many photographers never figure that out. Maybe that is the reason why so many photographers quit after two years.

Some of What attendees will learn:
1. How to take control and start acting like a CEO.
2. Intentional decisions to make for long-term business success.
3. What they need to stop doing immediately (or else!)

Interior Spaces
Designers and home interiors brands need optimal images to advocate for their services and products. Everything from appliance brands, flooring, furniture and the designers that buy those things for home renovations- photographers capture it. We can discuss how to capture a room using natural light with a wide view, all the way down to the tiniest details like pillows or cabinetry. Once all of the hard design work is done, designers need quality images to show off the months and years of planning, picking out and sourcing items to fit inside the home.

Publication Planning: Working with your Planner and Vendor Team to Maximize Exposure for Your Work
 While the primary purpose of our work is providing amazing services to our clients, the entire vendor team benefits from publication and media exposure. It not only adds credibility to our work, but can also lead to further referrals. In this session, I will give practical tips and tricks to plan for publication in the wedding world. We’ll focus on pre-wedding planning to ensure the proper shots are taken, day-of things to be aware of, and post-wedding planning/production to maximize exposure. Publication doesn’t always mean being featured in print or getting a real wedding feature - social media and round-up articles can also be very effective. If you collaborate as a team ahead-of-time to talk about key details, address the publication strategy, and even work together on social media strategies, you can maximize the exposure of your events and curate what is shown from those events to attract your ideal future clients.

Newborn Studio Lighting
Especially when it comes to newborn photography, lighting is SO important. Newborn skin tones can look very different depending on the lighting, and then in-turn be very difficult to edit if not lighted properly. There is so much more to newborn lighting other than sitting your light in the right spot. Oftentimes, we need to adjust our lighting depending on the pose which is something that is usually glossed-over but makes a huge impact. I sometimes travel to other photographers' studios to mentor them and one of the things I consistently notice is that they're not using the correct modifier for their space. I think often-times, photographers see what another photographer is using and assume that is the "best" which it may not necessarily be for their studio space. Wall colors, ceiling height, dimensions, and ambient light also need to be considered when choosing a light modifier. I will also touch on how my newborn lighting differs from other in-studio sessions I do.

Capturing What It Feels Like: A Look At Photographing the Authenticity of Families
This talk would be all about capturing feelings, not smiles. I flat out tell people (nicely, of course!) that if you're looking for a session where you sit and smile at the camera, do not book me. That is 100% the opposite of my goal. I will discuss capturing the true beauty of a family. No forced poses or unhappy kids (and how I accomplish this)! I will discuss how to photograph a family that gives them images that they can look back on in years and FEEL. The belly laughs, the missing teeth, the chubby hands. My tagline for my business has always been "capturing what makes your family, you". The way to do this is to sit back and watch your family naturally interact. A huge part of my sessions is placing my clients in flattering light, general positioning that I want them in, providing simple direction, and then stepping back and allowing the family space to relax and let those genuine connections and moments happen. That's where the magic happens.

Break Up With Busy: Say Goodbye To The Hustle and Hurry and Get Your Life Back
Do your days feel like you're just going through the motions? You're spinning on the hamster wheel, day after day. There's so much to do, you're always thinking ahead to the next thing and missing out on what's happening right in front of you. It's not the way you want to run your business, and it's not the way you want to live your life. The good news? You don't have to. The truth is that "busy" is not just how life for entrepreneurs and business-building moms who want to keep their faith, families - and everything that matters most - a priority. There is a better way. It begins with rethinking your most precious resources: your time, energy and attention. Through mindset and practical strategy, I'm showing you how to break up with busy so that you can have MORE peace, presence and productivity, LESS stress, overwhelm and burn out - in your life and business.
