There is something super special, dare I say magical, about attending a photography conference in-person. In a post-pandemic world, I think we are all excited to return to being around other humans. Today's guest is Alison Hatch, Film Family Photographer who has taken on a new role, Conference Organizer. We discuss the ins and outs of bringing back one of my favorites, PhotoNative.

Alison is a family photographer who lives in Albuquerque. She is the director of Photo Native, an annual photography conference for all types of photographers and all levels. "You Belong" is the conference's motto for that very reason. When Alison isn't juggling all the balls that Photo Native and her photography business throw at her, she likes to tend to her indoor plant obsession, travel with film camera in, and make sure she gets her daily dose of chocolate.
