Oh. My. Goodness.
Talk about a whirlwind of a trip! Little Miss Melly (my three month old) and I flew down to Vegas for the annual WPPI convention on Sunday afternoon and just got back last night. We had so much fun getting to see old and new friends! Highlights of the trip were definitely the party with the whole creativeLIVE crew, getting to spend some time with my lovely mom and, of course, my platform class with one of my best friends in the world, Matthew "The Body" Kemmetmueller where we got to teach how to run a successful studio whether you have a high end studio or a high volume studio. We had some amazing support from our friends Triple Scoop Music (provides all the music for our slide shows, promo vids and more), Kubota Image Tools (who launched the brand new Kubota Market for photographers. SUCH an amazing thing...it's like iTunes but for photogs!), AsukaBook, Red Boot Design (who does all of my custom album design and template work), Artsy Couture (my amazing lab) and StickyAlbums (creator of personal apps for my clients). All gave away some smokin' prizes!!
One of the most exciting parts of this trip was getting launch my new product, Alycia White's Personality Posing Guide for Photographers! This is a concept I came up with the help create a fluid workflow during my senior girl sessions while still offering a personal and unique experience to my clients.
Here's how it works:
Every senior girl who walks in my door fills out a form with 48 personality characteristics to choose from. They circle the top ten words that describe who they are. I then use my Posing Guide to pose them with the ten poses that match the words they chose. This way, each senior girl gets a different set of poses in their session and I have a system that works for all of my clients. I LOVE IT!
Not only do I have a hard copy of this guide (printed by the AWESOME Artsy Couture) in my camera bag but I also have my 5 Signature poses in my own personal app on my phone thanks to StickyAlbums!
I am so excited about how this has helped me in my business and I'd love to share this with you guys in hopes that it helps build your own portrait businesses as well!

We had such an amazing time in Vegas and we CAN'T WAIT for next year!
