new year, new changes!

Happy New Year! Some changes are coming to my photography business and I couldn’t be more thrilled. Since I’ve started this business almost five years ago, I focused mainly on weddings. I called myself a “Wedding Photographer.” Now,  I am going to be shifting my focus to lifestyle photography in the coming years.

Being a lifestyle photographer, for me, just makes sense. I love families- I love kids- I love the season of maternity…all of those things are my heart. I live and breathe art- I’m also in a family and I am with children day in and day out. What better way that to capture life through families and kids? I love to photograph the beauty of every day – the beauty in the smallest of moments.

I used to think that being a wedding photographer was “elite” but that simply isn’t true. Being a lifestyle photographer is just as important, and is essential in preserving memories for generations to come. I fully believe that.

So what does this mean? This doesn’t mean that I won’t be photographing weddings. I will still do a few select wedding each year. (I have weddings booked for 2015 and couldn’t be more excited about them!) It means I will be doing more family, children, and maternity type- sessions but will also be selective. My number one focus right now is my family and little ones and it is going to stay that way.

I am very excited for this change. My logo has had a small re-brand as well as my website and this blog. I’m excited for the extra free time I will have to blog and write. I’m excited to do what I love and have a heart for. I hope you and yours have a very wonderful New Year. Thank you for following along on this journey with me! Here’s to 2015 and all that it has to offer :)


I love your new logo. It is so fitting and so you! Love your new direction too! Miss you!! Xoxo

Hey, I was wondering if your could offer any advice on how to start a photography business and how you came about starting yours? I’ve admired your photos for some time now, and having an interest in photography from doing it at college (UK) I want to focus this year on how to develop photography into more than a hobby. I’ll be doing small wedding photography at a couple of family events this year, but apart from that I haven’t got much behind me and would appreciate any advice.
Many thanks,

how neat! I’m excited for you. Sounds like a great move for you and your family. And I love the rebrand! Happy 2015!!!

This is awesome news! Good luck and I can’t wait to see everything!

Makes perfect sense to me – these other moments are just as significant in a lifetime as a wedding.

Love the new look!!! It’s beautiful!! Excited for you and your new changes. Sending love your way!

Yay!! I love that you’re changing things up – both in shooting and in your branding look! The colors really liven things up and reflect your work well! :) Excited for you, friend! Here’s to 2015! xoxo!
