The NEW! October 28, 2009

You have no idea how excited I am to tell you that the BRAND-NEW website is now live!! :) It’s a whole new look, an entirely new logo, and makes me feel all happy inside. All of this has been in the works since earlier this year, as I tried to pinpoint what it is that makes your photography experience a great one. And it all came down to one thing — joy.

True, unadulterated joy. That kind of happiness that wells up in your heart and springs out to everyone around you. :) I know it might sound cheesy, but it’s not. Because I witness joy in your lives every time we meet. I witness the excitement and passion in a wedding day, the silly and fun relationships between family members, the newly experienced love in a home with a new baby. Life is all about these things. Life is meant to be spent sharing joyful moments with the people you love. And since photography is about capturing your life — photography is all about joy!


I’d be remiss if I didn’t thank some awesome people for their help with this big long process:

Jeff – for putting up with long nights of working on this and for previewing the site a billion times with me. :)

Lindsey with Element Creative Studio – for your awesome work on my new logo. You’re an amazing graphic designer, and you were able to take my muddled thoughts and make them into something beautiful.

Nick – for being my personal IT consultant. :) Thanks for spending time sorting through all of this web lingo with me. 

Showit – for creating an awesome tool that people who don’t know how to write HTML code can use to design a custom website from scratch. Amazing, amazing, amazing. 

Everyone else – for being cool people. :)


I’d love to know what you think about the new site and new look. You can send me an email through the contact page on the site, or just click on Comments below and leave a little love here on the blog. :) Okay, now what are you waiting for? Check it out!


Oh, and did I mention a new BLOG is coming your way? :) It is. I’m just full of surprises today! Stay tuned!

    So… I think this is my first comment in over a year of reading your blog, but the new site just begs me to say OUTSTANDING! It looks great and is a great representation of the joy that you and your work bring to everyone you come into contact with! I can’t say how many times I have just smiled at your photographs, even of people I don’t know because of the exciting and joyful emotions you are able to capture through your cameras.
