Where Y’at? N’awlins

“Be present in everything you do and everything you are.”- Dane Sanders
I took his advice  this PartnerCon and just Enjoyed BEING IN an amazing city WITH many of my esteemed colleagues, adored mentors and fabulous friends. I took every opportunity to soak in the magic of the Pictage Community and really get to know those around me. My heart is Happy to have made new connections and strengthen friendships.
My good Buddy Daren Boussard who I met at Texas School this past May picked me up from the airport. What a great friend to drive 2 hours just to hang out with me, show me the town of N’awlins. We also visited the AfterDark EDU conference going on at the same time as PartnerCon. There we met up with MORE great friends from our incredible industry-Like Tom Stanley From WHCC, Sam Fairchild from Midwest Photo Exchange, John Snow from Larosn Entrprises, Lori Nordstrom, Tri Coast, Tammy Mars, Jen Hillengea, JulieAnne Kost, Eddie Tapp and Ken Sklute.

Jim Collins Question for us this year was

Where Y’at? :In Life :In Love :In Biz

Carla Lynn Captured Inspired by Ashley : A young girls battle with a rare cancer her senior year.
Joe Buissink Shared his childhood memories … I fall more in love with that man’s heart each time I hear him speak.

Ron and Tasra Dawson assisted Carla in sharing Ashley’s Inspiring story and documenting Joe’s Story

I tried AZTECA Gelato one night and I must say this Native New Mexican Gal thought it had a nice kick with that cayenne!


Pictage Simon Got a Feeling- That Today Was Going to be A GOOD GOOD DAY! He started the morning session out with a song and the whole room was DANCING!


Special Thanks to Ron Dawson- What would PartnerCon be without you sharing your vision, talent  and heart!
