If you recall back to January 1, one of my goals for 2009 was to be overall more fabulous. Not me personally, just my business. 🙂 So, yesterday and today I did a major overhaul on the content of my website. The blog is fairly easy for me to update and add new things, but the website is like its forgotten orphan. I rarely think about it, which is wrong! Google Analytics tells me that most of you are coming through my site to the blog.
Anyway, go check out the site…lots of new content, some of which has never even seen the blog! I did keep some of my favorites from years past, but most of the content is new.
This is one of the new rotating pictures on the front page. I don’t think I ever blogged it. It was from one of my last photo sessions up in the bay area. I love the casual feel and the connection between the brothers. Since summer is around the corner, I wanted the front page to have a very light, airy and *warm* feel.
Another change is the categories in my portfolio. In the past, it was divided into stages of life. I decided to instead divide the portfolio into location styles. All walks of life can have their photo session in a rural area, urban downtown, at home or at the beach. I want to use the site as inspiration for clients in deciding the background for their images. They can easily click a location choice and see how they will fit into that environment.
Not to worry, I have an arsenal of locations for each of the categories. There will be no cookie-cutter photo sessions at the same place. If I ever do a repeat location, my goal is always to keep the same feel while making it look like a totally different place than the time before.
Coming soon…I want to keep it fresh by doing an experimental photo session every month. I’ll need local volunteers, so stay tuned for more details on that.
For now, bed is calling my name after a long day’s work.
