I am so excited to finally launch our new site and new blog! It has been ages since I have blogged and it's about time I got back to it! Somehow while running a business, and chasing after two rapidly growing boys, blogging totally got away from me. But I love the look of my new site, as well as the fact that it is now mobile friendly. And I have tons of new images uploaded in the galleries to share! I've gone from primarily focusing on weddings, to tons of exciting new things including commercial photography, corporate, family, baby and senior portraits over the past few years.
One of the steps in creating my new site and blog was actually getting a updated picture of myself for my "About" page - which I was not looking forward to. I'm completely comfortable behind the camera, but in front of the camera - I am the worst. In my head I'm thinking of every tidbit of advice I give my clients, and then critiquing how the person taking my picture is holding the camera. Do I like the angle they are using? How close are they zoomed in? Did I blink? Wouldn't a different lens be better? Is my hair ok? Should I have worn something different? The result is a lot of pictures where I look very concerned and grumpy. In this case my husband was the unlucky one taking the picture. But thanks to a lot of patience, and my children's successful attempts at making me laugh, we got a few acceptable photographs where I did not look like I was trying to solve a world crisis.
