In 2017, I celebrate four years – four years of this labor of love known as my photography business.
Now, I’m so excited to share the redesign of my website with you! In the past four years, I’ve grown so much as a photographer and business owner. To be quite honest, it’s nothing I’m doing myself. It’s people like you who continue to trust me to capture the most intimate, important moments of their lives, from engagements to marriage, to starting and growing your family – I’m so grateful for each and every story I get to tell through my lens.
And now, I get to share this beautiful site I call “home” on the Internet with you!
THE WEBSITE DESIGN PROCESS
For roughly a year now, I’ve been contemplating changing website hosts and taking on a more professional design for my site. But after four years of using the same website, I would quickly talk myself out of it because the sheer hours of work I knew it would take to recreate on a new site.
In June, I started looking at website hosts and designs, and while there are so many beautiful options out there, I had a hard time choosing a design to represent my business for the next several years. I’m super picky when it comes to design, so I took a few hours of just digging through sites to get a feel for what I liked.
However, once I finally found a template I liked, it became love when I was able to start tweaking and uploading my own images into it.
First, my website is now mobile friendly! If you view it on your phone, it will look exactly like it looks on the desktop version.
On the home page, you’ll find a slideshow gallery that showcases some of my favorite current work. Keep scrolling and you’ll find a short bio blurb and a link to read more about me. Next, hover over the images to take a peek at the most recent blog posts. Lastly, you’ll find quick links to my investment page, contact page, and popular galleries.
I focused a lot on how to improve my current site, and I wanted my services page to better serve my potential clients. I love that now you can see all the details of the sessions I offer, get an idea for a starting price of my packages, and click one button to book me! There are absolutely no surprises now with what I offer, which is so nice when you’re looking for the right photographer within your budget.
Lastly, I love the kind words page that I now have a place to share all the wonderful feedback I receive from former clients, which is always helpful when you’re looking for that photographer that just fits with you and your loved ones.
Just to give you a little tour, here are some of my favorite blog posts to date, and I’d love if you’d check them out:
I’m so stinking happy with what I’ve put together so far, and I’m so excited to further develop it in time to give you – the client – exactly what you are looking for. Thanks again for stopping by! I’d love to hear what you’d like to see on the site. Feel free to contact me and share your thoughts or comment below!
