Imaging USA 2010 {Mid Michigan Photographer}

Sadly...no I was not there in person. I really wanted to go but once again my fear of flying won the battle. But it worked out for the best anyway, as our family got nailed with the lovely flu bug. Had I planned on going, I would have had to cancel anyway, as I spent the weekend quite sick. Imaging this year was in Nashville, TN which I happen to love Tennessee, but only when I am able to drive there ;) But winter time...not a good drive...LOL. Anyway, a couple of my very good photog friends (and fellow Pixel Chicks) Julie Monacella and Sherry Boles made the trip and their first stop at the Expo was just for me :) Julie checked in Sunday night with our group to share the pics and tell us about meeting up with Sherry. She even got a shot of Sherry in action taking pics of my work on display at the booth. Yes, that is what I said, my work on display...can you believe it!! How exciting is that!! Recently I ordered some new business cards from my lab and the next day I got a call from them asking if they could use them as samples at their booth at Imaging. They also asked about using my work for a few other things at their booth (from the pics I can't wait to see them in person)! So from the pics Julie took, you will see they used my new square business cards...which I loved how they displayed them on the table. They also used one of my favorite images in a canvas gallery wrap and paired it up with a new product they are launching. You will see the canvas and the circular print side by side on the table. You will all recognize "The Truck" :) I wish I could have been there in person, but am thankful for you guys sharing in the excitement with me :)
