It probably was not one of my brightest ideas to redesign my website during the peak of busy season …. but it was in serious need of a facelift. And I finally was ready to pull the trigger. It was weeks of being overwhelmed … but I am beyond thrilled to have my new site live this morning.

A few tweaks will be happening over the next few weeks, but the new look is up so be sure to check it out!

A huge thank you to Jasmine … my amazingly talented web developer who took my vision and made it happen.

To my brother, Peter, who coached me along the way … forwarded me emails from our developer, checked how things were looking in different browsers and drafted the outline for the site …. as always I couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you for being the business side to my creative brain!

To my dear friend and beyond talented photographer, Cassandra Eldridge, I am OBSESSED with pretty much every photo you took of me. It was so hard to only pick a few for the new website, blog and social media pages. You blow me away with your work … everyday!

To my mom …. thank you for the many phones of letting me vent when I was stressed and for being my biggest cheerleader … always.

To my Christine and Jennifer … thank you all for being my bouncing board when I wasn’t sure what I wanted. I’m so lucky to have you both there to help me work through my ideas and refine them.

To my clients (and new friends!) who took the time to write me love notes. I am forever grateful for being able to photograph you and share your experience with others. I am still posting more notes, so don’t worry if you don’t see yours yet. ;)

And a huge, huge thank you to my amazing boyfriend, Phil. For listening to me talk about my “new” website for nearly a year, for helping me narrow down my head shots (we had such a hard time, Cassandra!), for staying up late because I was still working …. but most of all for pushing me to go after this dream when I was too scared to jump. I love you.

Let me know what you think about the new site ….

    I LOVE the new site. I am so proud of you and all you have accomplished. I admire your journey, and could not be more excited for you each and every day. You are living your passion and that is evident in your work. You are the most amazing photographer I have ever encounter and I can’t want to see you continue to reach new heights. Congrats on the site, it’s just as beautiful as you and your work!
