Faces, People and Places

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

These past few days have been nothing short of amazing, full, intense and authentic. If I had not caught a (stupid) and nasty cold, I would have thrown in a skip and side step. Let's just say I'm dancing inside. It's hard to put into words everything that went down and around at Evo 10 in Park City Utah so I thought I'd post some pictures that illustrate the emotions that resurfaced when I looked at them on the plane to Colorado.

Thank you Jyl and Rachael for having me as a speaker and for handling everything with such positivity, sass and class.

Evo 10 Opening Keynotes
Evo 10 is...it's amazing keynote speakers and being able to hear women that I have admired and read from a long time. Special thank you to Stephanie, Karen and Brene. You are even "more better" in real life.

Evo 10 - Attendees of the Food Photo and Blog Workshop
Evo 10 is... meeting new faces and spending some quality time with old friends. Thanks Maria, Katie, Kristen and Amy for being such the classy bloggers that you are.

My co-panelists at Evo10
Evo 10 is...sharing a panel of Food Blogging and Food Photography with three amazingly witty and smart women: Jane, Helen Jane and Stephanie.

Evo 10 - Young attendee
Evo 10 is....holding babies. And playing with babies. Hearing heart breaking stories about stories. And if the camera is indeed the photographer's third eye well, my lens got as misty and foggy as my heart and veered on the "can't focus anymore! Too much cuteness!"

Evo 10 Conference
Evo 10 is being able to capture your hotel roomates goofing off before a session while Oprah people are less than a feet away except you're clueless. While people find that "refreshing", I still haven not figured out why it does not phase me that much to not be in the know. Actually I do. Because it does not matter if you are a big fish or a small one in this world, you still need to know how to swim.

Sassy Kami and Carina
Evo 10 is....having some pretty darn gorgeous and sassy roomates. Thanks Kami and Carina for laughs.

Evo 10 - Impromptu Concert by One EskimO
Evo 10 is...impromptu concert late at night by the cute guys of One EskimO.

Karen In the Moment-1000 Faces Project
Evo 10 is...being lucky to take a snapshot of the amazingly Karen in action as she works on her project "Photograph 1000 Faces". I am truly honored to be one of them.

Dinner at Jen's from Use Real Butter

And then Evo 10 turned into Food And Light Photography Workshop with this amazing bunch of friends and fellow food bloggers, Todd, Diane and Jen.

Kicking off the Food and Light Workshop
We were joined by Andrea, Lisa, Anita and Susan for dinner and toasted to Anita's recent weddings and to a good and fun workshop.

In the meantime Kaweah, Jen's dog was surveying the meat cutting board and subsequent potential scraps...
