Announcing PUSH 2017


I cannot believe this announcement is coming for a third year now and I am still just as nervous as when I first announced it!  This conference means everything to me and I am so grateful that I get to share my dream with all of you.  I am not going to lie, I still get very nervous hoping you want to be a part of this.  It is always scary when you put yourself out there but if you don’t do it, you cannot grow.

This year I relied heavily on your feedback to create my ultimate speaking team.  I listened to the topics you wanted covered and did my absolute best to bring them to you.  Every year I am excited for what is to come.  The PUSH speakers the last three years have been the absolute best in the industry and I am grateful to call each and everyone of them my friend.  I am constantly in awe of their artistic ability.  And to be able to gather 12 of them at a time each to put under one roof is what makes this conference so special.

After last year’s conference I felt like my family had grown.  This year I know it has grown exponentially.  We became a larger and tighter PUSH family.  Crazy I know.  It must sound that way to anyone who has not attended the last two years, but to the lucky 50 each year, we left stronger, energized and knowing we had each other’s backs and will continue to do so.  It was in every sense of the word…a family.

Am I nervous putting my dream back out on display?  YES.  But I truly believe in the power of community and education.  We are growing stronger and making this industry stronger along the way!  This year expect more ACTIONABLE and IMPLEMENTABLE items than ever before for your business!


I just love this behind the scenes video taken by our PUSH alumni, April Massad!

The Details…

PUSH 2017 will be held at the same location as this past year.  The Inn At Depauw in Greencastle, IN is the perfect setting for us to freely create.  The hotel will be locked down for only PUSH attendees again this year (and yes those of you who stayed in Depauw’s Town homes located across the street will have that option as well).  It makes this event more intimate.  The hotel and town homes were the perfect creative bubble for 2015 and 2016!  We will be back in the ballroom and galleria area we were in for PUSH 2015!

Combine the hotel, location and all of these elements…

You will be pushed beyond you comfort zone in all aspects of business from pricing, marketing, posing, senior models, editorial components, styling and so much more.  We have put together a team of amazing speakers all invested in helping your business.  Each one of them has a very specific topic and course created for you to incorporate into your business.

“I have attended PUSH for the past two years and cannot begin to express how much the knowledge, guidance and friendships gained from the conference have changed my business…and myself.  From the industry leading presenters, to the amazingly talented photographers attending, the experience was completely uplifting and encouraging.

Vickie Black compiled a line-up of industry-leading presenters ready to generously share their knowledge and experience, helping each attendee take their business to the next level.  Vickie’s dedication to providing the best educational experience, incorporating the latest and most desired professional techniques and topics, while creating a positive, family-like atmosphere is to be commended.  I cannot wait for PUSH 2017!” -Shelley Larrabee
