2017 has been going by way too fast. It’s crazy to think we’re already halfway through the year. It’s been an incredibly exciting year so far in ON1 Plus; we’ve had unforgettable moments and made some great memories. From launching new courses, sharing hundreds of presets, introducing new coaches and unique topics, we can go on and on. The best is still yet to come and before we move ahead let’s take a quick look back at the best of the first half of 2017 in the ON1 Plus community!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and grandpas out there! It is a perfect day to not only celebrate Dad’s but to celebrate relationships. I enjoy being able to photograph my husband with our kids embracing the things that they love to do together. If you have little ones, ask them what their favorite things are about their dad or what they love to do with them? If you asked my son, Lennox he says giving Daddy hugs (he’s three).
I was honored to be a part of the Spring into Summer campaign and jumped on board with a fun video on High School Seniors. As we head into summer, Senior season is in full swing for a lot of studios. At the beginning of the season I enjoy creating a few new presets, inspired by my first couple sessions. Styles and trends are always evolving as well as my mood can vary when I am editing the start of a new season of seniors.

Google/Nik® recently announced they will no longer update the Nik Collection of plug-ins or add any new features in the future. With this important photography news, we felt it was time ON1 reached out to the photography community on the topic.
Last week I took the ON1 team on a photo walk in a cute little area of Portland called, Multnomah Village. I gave each team member a card with the scavenger hunt and they had try and capture a photo representing each of the ten themes. Some of you may have had a sneak peek of this Scavenger hunt on the forums (in the portrait category) where I extended the assignment to our Plus members. This Scavenger Hunt was created for the ON1 team’s May photo walk but I loved extending it to plus members and seeing everyone’s posts so far.
It is important that we enjoy as much photography around the office as we can even if that means pretending to be excited about that special time of year again. You know, the (dreaded) company headshot day. Just mentioning the event would make you think everyone was taking a trip to the dentist and getting a couple teeth pulled. I’ll admit when you are used to being behind the camera (or computer for that matter) having to be the center of attention is not always high on everyone’s list. As the photographer, it is my job to make everyone feel comfortable and at ease. I assured the team that I would make this day as pain free, quick and full of laughter as possible. With me behind the camera, entertainment is a given.
We are super excited to be partnering with Rocky Nook for our Spring into Summer Event. If you aren’t familiar with Rocky Nook, they are a publishing business with a focus on digital photography and much more. The books and eBooks they offer make them a tremendous resource for everyone.
