Hello sweet friends.
I am finally getting around to posting my first blog post on my new website. Sad thing is, I can’t transfer all my old blog posts here. But I will be trying my hardest to “re-blog” some of my favorite sessions from the past 1.5 years.
My old website was created through a free website platform and was limited in the amount of modifications and personalization I could do. Being creative, this was terribly annoying for me. And of course, living in the middle of nowhere (Saratoga, Wyoming) meant that I didn’t have access to a tech savvy friend that could assist me. Yes, I do plan on paying a designer in the future to really personalize my brand, but for now, I had to step up to the plate. I know my website is still very basic and will be a work in process for a while, but I already like it so much more than my old site. I plan on adding more content over the next couple of months, but will likely not “share” that I have added more until I feel like I have a base. So check back often to see what I have been up to.
As for my hiatus, I have to say “THANK YOU” to everyone who has been so patient with me. This winter was an extremely tough time for me personally, and as such, I took a major (unintentional) step back from my business. I am finally at a place where I can see a little perspective and am excited for the possibilities in the future. And with that, I am so thankful for those clients, friends, and family who supported me, loved me, and were so understanding. This really meant the world to me.
But now I am back. 🙂 And I am ready to start taking on sessions again. I am even thinking of putting out some model calls in Carbon County (Encampment, Rawlins, Saratoga, Riverside, etc.) so I can urge my creative juices to start flowing again. I am ready to create. And to remember why I am an artist.
And, for fun, I will post the first image I posted on my old website. This is a photograph taken at the top of the Snowy Mountain Range, near Lake Marie. I love this stunning landscape, with its craggy rock faces, as well as the trees, sun, sky…. it’s simply breathtaking and I love that we live in such a beautiful area of the United States.
