Professional Growth | by Amarillo Area Newborn & Family Milestone Photographer, Jessi Norvell

I just came back from a photography conference in San Antonio, Texas held at the Marriott Rivercenter... and it was AMAZING!  I had the best time, learned a lot, and networked with some fabulous photographers.  One thing that I really enjoyed was just seeing different photographers' perspectives on the same scene (in the same light!).  Amazing how as artists we see the world so differently.  I missed working with babies, but it was amazing to branch out and photograph other things.  For example, my good friend is a photographer and we swapped head shots.  I love this one she took of me:

And here's the one I created for her (Kassi Westerman of Kassi Westerman Photography):

I bet you'd never guess that those were taken using unbelievably awful hotel room light!  I think that's one more reason I'm so proud of the images.  


I also got to photograph a beautiful sunset maternity session while there, and I couldn't believe how much I loved photographing this Mommy-to-Be in her red maternity dress.  I have plans for a beautiful lace dress at a session coming up, so definitely stay tuned!  But in the meantime, enjoy this lovely image of the beautiful Shawna who is carrying a baby girl to be named "Kalais"... So unique and precious, just as she will be, I'm sure!

Just a beautiful moment frozen in time.  Soon, she will have that precious bundle in her arms and this will be just a memory - but one she can recall fondly now that she has this beautiful image!  Please make sure to Like Darkroom Junkie Photography on Facebook, and we'll soon be on Instagram so I'll add that link when I have it!  Don't miss out on any memories!

With Joy,
