Springfield Illinois Senior Portrait Photographer Kari Bedford Leaves Snowmageddon for Senior Portrait Event

Okay, first of all…in order for me to properly gloat about a trip to sunny California in February, the temperature in Springfield cannot register above freezing. Otherwise, what is the point??

Oh, right. Spending 5 days in a beautiful resort hotel with some of the best senior portrait photographers in the country. Hooray!

From February 14th through February 18th, I will be attending SPA Event in Palm Springs, California. The event is held in a sunny locale every year — and always in a really beautiful resort. This year, the event will be held at the Riviera Resort and Spa — which looks like something right out a movie set. Classes consist of actual photo shoots, marketing ideas, a huge fashion show and a ton of fun.

The Senior Portrait Artists (SPA) event is an annual occurrence. If you follow Kari Bedford Photography on Facebook, you may have seen that one of my high school seniors was thisclose to winning a spot as a model for SPA. She made it to the top 50 finalists out of 400 entries. High school students from all over the country enter the model competition every year. So this year, any high school senior photographed by Kari Bedford Photography can earn a chance to attend SPA as a model next year.

All expenses paid — warm weather —  did I mention the swanky resort and the bazillions of amazing photographers who will be taking more photos of you than you ever thought possible?

I would LOVE to send a high school senior to SPA next year! If you are interested in the aforementioned awesomeness, schedule your appointment soon…so we can create the kind of amazing images that SPA demands.

In the meantime, I’m going to work on my skills….and my tan. See you when I return!
