I'm sure you guys have noticed that for a couple of months now, I have slowed down and even stopped posting content. You're probably expecting me to say something like, "I've been super busy with projects" or "an amazing opportunity came up," but it's nothing like that. It's as simple as, I became uninspired and I wasn't sure what I was doing with my photography.
So, I started taking the time to figure things out and that's what I'm still doing. I'm discovering who I am, what I want my brand to be, and where I want to take my photography.
First things first, I'm planning to redesign my brand. My website, my logo, everything. Now you may be thinking, "didn't you just do a redesign?" Yes. I did it because I felt like everything needed a change. I wasn't happy with how things were looking. The thing is though, that redesign was kinda rushed and if you look at the big picture, I didn't actually change that much. I'm not saying I hate what I did; I just don't think it fits with what I want my brand to be. So this time I will take things slower. I will (hopefully) be making bigger changes and incorporating more of myself into my brand (because I haven't been the best at that in the past.) In the meantime you will be seeing little changes here and there, as I will be testing some things out. (Special sneak peeks below!)
I will also be trying to be myself more. In the past I tried doing what others were doing on social media. I tried to be upbeat, super positive, post inspiring quotes, but it all felt a bit fake to me. So I'm going to change that. Don't worry, I won't get super depressing on you, but I will try to be more real.
While trying to figure these things out, I will also learning more. I'll be taking classes, enhancing my skills, learning new ones. It's a small and unimportant detail for you guys to know, but hey, it's apart of my journey so why not include it?
Number two: I am trying to do more personal photo shoots. Don't worry I'm still doing photo sessions. (If you were worried and are looking to have a session, click that contact button at the top of the screen and let's have a chat. ;D ) I've wanted to try some more stylized photo shoots and I've had a couple ideas in my head that I've been wanting to do. I've also wanted to do more dance portraits. I haven't done any in a while and I miss them. So, (shameless plug coming) if any of you reading this are interested in modeling for me or if any of you dancers need some portraits for a portfolio or anything, hit me up! Seriously! We would have delightfully, awkward fun as I try to figure out exactly how to make what I envision in my head happen in real life. Also, we would both get some pretty sweet pictures out of it!
And finally, number three. I want to start blogging more. When I was younger I wanted to start a blog, but was never sure what I would write about. Now that I have one, I still don't know what to write about! I'll still post photos from sessions and from other adventures that I have, but this is where I need your help. Let me know what you want to see from me. Do you want to see updates of my redesign? Do you want more personal stories and thoughts? Do you want to know more about how I do things? Do you want to know photography tips or advice? I'm all ears! Let me know, because I don't want to just talk to myself on here, I want to talk with you guys too! It'll be way more fun.
Is that everything? I think that's everything. I'm redesigning, I'm going to do more personal photo shoots, and I'm going to try to blog more.
Well, I hope you guys enjoyed this update, which could also probably be considered a mind dump. Is that a real thing people say or something I made up? Anyway, now I think I'm rambling and I better wrap it up so we can all continue on with our day.
Just remember guys I need your help! Let me know if you want to be a model and/or what you want to see from me. I am ready and waiting.
Until next time my friends! Have an awesome day!
