Friends, I can’t lie to you… I am so excited about this new blog!! Not because it’s the most amazing photo website you’ve ever seen (there are wayyyy cooler ones, to be sure), not because it’s taken me so long to get it up and running (SO sorry for the two weeks of down-time… the worst), not because I believe it is perfect (believe me, it’s a work in progress!)… but because it is my new website and I finally feel like I have a place to invite you all to that I am excited about! It’s like having a newly, comfortably, decorated living room that you can’t wait to have friends over to enjoy. It finally feels like a space you can share with friends and you don’t feel like you have to apologize for the inconvenience or cold feeling the space gives off. Don’t get me wrong, it’s totally more about the company than the space itself… but a comfy space allows you to enjoy the company more.
That (somewhat convoluted) metaphor is how I feel about my blog. Admittedly, when I started my photography blog just under a year ago, I didn’t realize how far it would take me. I didn’t realize how many beautiful sessions and weddings I would eventually want to share with all of you! But, as the months went on, I realized my old blog just was not that comfy, inviting space I wanted to invite everyone to. I wanted a space that would better showcase the fantastic people and events I am so blessed to be able to capture through photography. And I think, this is it! Again, not the best, not perfect… but just the right fit for me. And honestly? I am so thankful to have grown out of my old blog.
The down-side of it all? I decided one night I was ready for the change and it had to happen now! Well, “now” turned into about two weeks… and so since then I have had a blog-site that has not been working and I left the month of April with just one lonely (albeit one lovely!) post. Bleh. But, I hope that I can redeem myself with this new site! :) And, since I committed (to whom, I am not sure) that I would do a self-portrait each month, I am claiming this as April’s self-portrait. Technically, it’s a picture from the month of April, I am just posting it in May! (Still counts, right?)
Alright, enough talk… take a look around the new blog! And let me know what you think! :)
