It’s baaaaaack! After a few-year hiatus, LTK Conference was back in full force this past September in Dallas, TX. LTK Conference is an opportunity for influencers, brands, and industry leaders to connect with one another from across the globe. Brands set up vendor booths to show off new products, share upcoming campaign opportunities, and meet with influencers and brand managers. Some of the brands at the conference were Spanx, maurices, Express, Petal + Pup, Colleen Rothschild, Victoria Emerson, and QVC to name a few.

Looking a Little Different This Year
Many of you know that I began my roots in this industry as a professional photographer that eventually grew into my company, AD Media Group. It has been a true pleasure and honor to work alongside my clients as their photographer into now representing many of them as their brand management team. There’s something quite surreal and humbling about watching your client list grow each LTK Conference. My typical years at LTK Conference has been almost exclusively behind the camera. But, now has evolved into meeting with brands, connecting with potential clients, and shaking hands of the most important people in this industry.

Even though I’m a professional photographer by trade, I’m still partial to a good ole iPhone photo, too! As I have been involved in this industry over 11 years now, I have grown my connections and love of the wonderful people involved in this space. I always look forward to opportunities to reconnect with people I haven’t seen in years. Not only do I get to see clients of years, but also get to connect with people I have been online friends with forever. Even more so, I love getting to BRAG on my sweet industry friends and their many accomplishments. This work is challenging and gritty, but nothing is sweeter than celebrating accomplishments as they roll in.
My Favorite Outfits
As you can imagine, a conference with influencers, bloggers, and brands becomes quite a fashionable event. My outfits at LTK, however, need to serve multiple purposes as I am generating content, meeting with brands, and connecting with clients. My team and I loved wearing faux leather pants this past conference as well as these adorable Nike sneakers!

Until Next Year…
As I reflect on this past year’s LTK Conference, I am reminded how much changes, but also truly how much stays the same. My team has expanded, my role has evolved beyond just photography, but the hustle to move the needle forward remains the same. Can’t wait to connect with you and some new fresh faces at next year’s LTK Con!
