I just returned from a lovely gathering of photographers. It was held at the Sidney Pier Hotel and I HIGHLY recommend it there. The service was fab, the food delish and the rooms just right – it didn’t hurt that I got up-grated to a premier suite. 

I often forget how important it is for me to take some time to be with my photographer peers. I have to say, in general photographers are kind of a quirky bunch, and if you are with the right kind, they let it all hang out – which makes me feel right at home. 
One of the conversations that was presented to us was “Emptying Your Cup” – forgetting what you know, resetting and seeing things different. 
On the dark drive home I had lots of time to ponder this and realized it is an approach I am going to push to the front of my consciousness more often, and not just in terms of my photography and business.

I feel so refreshed and happy today – it’s a good day. 
I have tons to blog, many shoots, look for lots of share’s coming up.
