Hi all! If you are stumbling across this blog post, you have probably already noticed that the website has gotten a little bit of a re-design. I needed a wee bit of colour around here (yes, it isn’t much colour.. but we don’t want to overwhelm my neutral loving self) ha ha! ..aaaand I figured spring is just around the corner right? Sooo, why not!?
Well, that isn’t the only thing that is different. I don’t even know where to begin.. those who know me, or those that have been here awhile know that I have always had a passion for being creative. I love love love making things pretty and creating and collecting and and and everything that comes with putting together a unique photo experience. It is just what I love to do. I love creative photo shoots. None of it ever feels like work.. from the initial consult to the editing of photos, I get so much joy from it.
Now, this is where it gets touchy for me. I don’t want anyone to think that I didn’t enjoy shooting their more traditional based sessions. I have loved every moment with every child, couple or family that I have ever spent time with. I have loved it all! So please don’t think otherwise! ..please please pretty please… ok?
I had a bit of an “ah-ha” moment while attending a photography workshop hosted by the one and only Hunter Leone of Three Nails Photography in Louisiana. I had a chance to show him some photos of mine.. which all happened to be creative stylized shoots that I have designed and photographed start to finish. I asked him, “how do I promote this aspect of my business?” ..well, his answer was simple and eye opening. He said “only shoot that.” ..huh. Why yes, that would definitely make the most sense. Honestly, it is something my heart has felt for a long time.. I knew change was coming. But when he said it so simply.. it all of a sudden seemed like I could do it.
So.. I am proud to say that Dearest Someday now specializes in photographing babies, toddlers, children, maternity and beauty. Creative stylized shoots, from start to finish. The kind of work that makes my heart sing. There really is no other way to put it. My heart is always happy and content with my camera in hand.. but it truly sings when I get to be creative in all ways possible.
Even my logo says “a creative studio” ..and that isn’t new! Have had the same one since 2013.. time to finally make it happen!
I know my website doesn’t currently reflect this type of work 100%.. I am working on that. I have been a very bad blogger for the last year, many sessions have not been shared at all and I feel so awful about that. I may post the odd one here and there, but I will mainly be focusing on moving forward with my new direction at this point.
Soo.. what does this mean for clients who have already booked? Not a single thing.. all dates for families, couples and weddings are 100% still a go and I am just as excited about our time together as the day I eagerly wrote your names on the calendar! So excited and honoured to be able to spend the time with you all!
So yeah.. this is really big news for me to finally be sharing! Feel free to poke around.. the “about” section has some additional information. I have also updated the main welcome page with images that I think properly convey the direction I want to go in. So, definitely take a peek if you like! At first I was nervous about announcing this.. like, does this even need announcing!? ha ha! ..but as I write, I am completely content. I know now that there is nothing more rewarding than doing what you are 100% passionate about. xoxo
