Animal Image Makers. I loved EVERYTHING. ALL THE THINGS. Seriously, it is one of the best conferences I attend. Even virtually, they knocked it out of the park with the content, the "fun" quotient, the sense of comraderie and the cool stuff that was a part of it.

This is the first time in over a year (since the shutdown in March of 2020)
1. That I have actually felt inspired.
2. That I actually hung out online because I wanted to.
3. I actually started falling back in love with photography.

It may not seem like much, but I want to give you ALL a huge virtual hug and say Thank you! You all did an amazing job!
