3.24.08 - 3.26.08 : : OSP Indy!

Road trips are always fun and this week's road trip down to Indianapolis for the OSP Indy (OSP stands for Open Source Photo, which is an amazing forum that I'm on)was certainly no exception. It was so much fun I couldn't even drag myself away to post any pictures! So as promised, I'm making up for it by posting an overload of them.

So who was part of this most amazing road trip?

The lovely and sassy Kerri from

The lovely and adorable Kelly of And my girl and fabulous studio partner Jen of
And because we're all a little sassy, we thought we'd make up some shirts to show everyone down there that we are the real deal.

This is the back of Kelly's shirt and we ordered them to wear. Cute right? Well guess what? Mine DIDN'T SHOW UP IN TIME! I was completely jealous that I had to keep telling everyone I was a bad ass GR photographer instead of having my shirt announce it for me.

It was three days of fun, inspiration, shooting and meeting other amazing photographers at the beautiful Omni Hotel in downtown Indianapolis.

We heard from Garrett Nudd who is seriously amazing. His work is not only incredible, but listening to him talk about the start to his photography career was completely validating. I could have listened to him talk all day.

We also heard from Kevin Swan, Brandi Brown, and Jennifer Driscoll, all of whom are completely talented and have me SO incredibly pumped up for this wedding and portrait season.

Jennifer Driscoll led a maternity session and we had a chance to work with some models Tuesday morning.

So sweet! This couple is expecting their first baby very soon.

This little one was hanging out just taking all of us crazy photographers in. They are starting them younger and younger these days.Kelly's totally rocking that lens. Jen, your eyes are beautiful!
Of course it wasn't all work and no play.

And these are just some random shots from the week.

I can't believe I almost forgot this part! On Tuesday afternoon we had a creativity challenge in which the entire group of attendees were divided into four smaller groups. Guess who was chosen to be the model for my group? Me! I was indulged in every America's Next Top Model fantasy I've ever had! Except for the part where I am good at being on the other side of the camera. Thank goodness I had some very talented photographers in my group. These were courtesy of the lovely Leann of Life Spring Photography.

So is this fierce?!

Hi Amy,

My goodness girl, all of your shots are fantastic, who'd ever thunk that a dart board could look so good. You have an amazing talent and personality, it was just "fabulous" meeting you (can you tell I have stalked your site :-)). Looking forward to more of your work and I hope we get to shoot together some time in the future. As soon as I process my images I'll post them on my blog and send you a link to get them. Blessings! - Ramiro
