You know those things that you have on your to-do list that basically never get checked off? Well I have had ‘update my website’ on my to-do list for SO long and I am so happy to finally have that checked off!! Ahhhh!
In 2018, I had the great opportunity to take many online courses that included the Amy & Jordan Business Course, the Online Photo Academy for Photographers, KJ All Access, and be a part of IPS Mastermind. 2018 was a year of growth and I just knew that I had to update my website and branding to accommodate the new vision for my business!
I asked several of you on Facebook, what words come to mind when you think of my portrait & wedding photography? Many of you came to help (thank you!) and had the following words:
happy vibrant colorful authentic bright thoughtful
fun classic bold unique modern elegant
I loved ALL of those words but after looking through my photography style and thinking about where I want my business to go, I concluded that my photography is VIBRANT | JOYFUL | AUTHENTIC
Knowing these key words, I got to work and started my re-brand! I had my amazing friend from college (Farah Firman) help me come up with a new logo design. I knew I wanted the new website and branding to feel luxurious by being very clean and simple. I chatted with Farah because I felt like my clients and their weddings are very vibrant, yet I also love photographing simple elegant outdoor weddings. I believe my style can be mixed between very vibrant and colorful to light and airy. We found a balance and chose navy for the logo design as well as accents of pink, gray, and light blue.
Now that I had a new logo design, I was ready to start designing my website!! I switched from ProPhoto Blogs to Show It and have absolutely loved working with Show It! Their interface is so simple and easy! I worked every night for about 2 months and learned the ins and outs of building a website and was able to get it done! Again, I wanted to showcase my best work keeping my three words in mind (VIBRANT | JOYFUL | AUTHENTIC ) while still creating an easy experience for you all while viewing my site! I also wanted to incorporate more about my story and my travel adventures. With hard work and dedication, I am so happy and proud to see how everything turned out!
To my old website…thank you so much for getting me started!!

What do you all think of the new design?! Is there anything else you’d like to see included or updated on the site? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
For 2019, I’d love to keep on learning and hustling! I’d love to book more 2019 and 2020 weddings in the Kansas City area as well as book a few destination weddings! If you love the new website and re-brand, let me know and thanks for reading!! <3
