Thank you BlogHer!

I’m just back from Chicago, from BlogHer, the conference for women bloggers. Bea, Jan and I all had such a great time with our panel on Food Photography (HappyKatie live blogged about it here, and StyleFool here. Thanks to both of you for such a great job transcribing). As someone who isn’t much of a fan of public speaking, I have to say, I had so much fun during this talk, and just wanted to say a big thanks to all the attendees for their great questions and attention. There was so much to cover… far more than was possible in the hour and a half we had, and every few minutes I think of another thing that I wish that I had said. But, I guess that just gives me more stuff to talk about here.

Once again, thanks to all the attendees and to BlogHer and it’s sponsors for asking me to attend.

PS: Bea has added a great summary of some of her key points on her blog… do take a look!

    Hi Lara,
    You were fantastic. I enjoyed the session on food photography so much. I learned a lot, and I just wish it could have been much, much longer! Thanks for coming.

    This was hands down one of my favorite sessions – you, Jan and Bea did a marvelous job. Many thanks for such a thoughtful and lovely presentation. I left the panel very hungry and very inspired :)

    Hi Lara – You three did such a fabulous session, thank you! I wish we had had a whole day of you, I was learning so much. Great to see you again. (Sorry it took me a few takes to recognize you.)

    You really inspired me to try and take photos of my food at home. Prior to your talk it seemed so unattainable, but you’ve singlehandedly changed my mind!
