Since I went full time photography in November, I have made a constant strive to do all the things that I had not been able to do when I had another full time job other than Red Bridge. I had made it a goal to go to the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) conference that is held annually in Las Vegas, NV. It is THE photography conference. Tens of thousands of photographers and vendors descend on Las Vegas for a week and we have print competitions, lectures, styled and on location shoots with hundreds of well known photographers, and a massive trade show just to name a few things.
Well this year I attended WPPI! I was so excited for all the knowledge that was to be had, the networking and fellowship with fellow photographers at the MGM Las Vegas. It was truly a surreal experience. One of the many things that I learned and decided that I was going to implement when I returned from Las Vegas was incorporating more videos into my photography. Not live shoot videos (not yet at least) but video slideshows of images from sessions.
I decided that since Red Bridge has such a huge focus on weddings and newborns that I would start first with newborn sessions in 2015 and MAY include weddings as well. I am trying to see first how implementing this in my workflow will work so stay tuned – but for now, all Red Bridge Newborn sessions, not just ones in the studio but also those held at the families home, will get a slideshow of some of my favorites from the session. They are fantastic for sharing the new blessing that has entered a families life and another great option for remembering these precious memories.
Many of my favorite photographers at the conference use these slideshows in their business as an add on an offering for their clients. For now, all Red Bridge Newborn sessions include this option with the session fee. I am really excited about this option and offering and hope you are as well!
So, my first Red Bridge Newborn session was with Daniel and his precious family. They came to visit me at the Red Bridge Raleigh Newborn Studio and he is easily the smiliest newborn I have had to date!
I hope you enjoy Daniel’s Newborn slideshow and look forward to sharing more videos with you in the future! It is just one of the new options and features I am looking forward to sharing with you as Red Bridge grows!
