"We need to decide on what size and qty. photos we'll give the people. We'll also need to decide where we're going to get them printed. I just checked out the San Jose group and there are some very good ideas floating around on their…"

That is funny, because a little later i hopped in the car with the couple I was shooting to park elsewhere... and passed you on north and 3rd. I said "hey, that is a very cool photographer named Aaron Hogan!" they said no way, because they'd actually talked to you about their wedding but you were booked. And out of town. So I got your left-overs. No problem, i'll take it!
I also used the subject of you as an icebreaker for a potentially awkward car ride. Which was sort of weird, but terribly convenient.
I probably sent you (and many others) a message b/c you posted in that main blog site. Main thing that will be helpful to you from this point on, is if you want to communicate info to a larger group of people, post info in your group or area location. That would be the Louisiana group for you...
If you go under the "social" link in the community section, there is a place called "blog" for posting blogs. In the past, people had been posting comments in that main blog section as a way to communicate information that needs to be directed towards their own group page. We're just trying to make the site work more efficiently, and figuring it out as we go along. We're also trying to encourage people if they have info about their event or area to post it in their own group section of the site. If you can help pass that info along, that would be awesome. Thanks for your patience!
Hey Aaron. I will think about it and get back to you. I have tons of experience working with the elderly and have even photographed nursing home residents before. I also adore children and if there is some type of need there, I would love that as well.
