Last week I launched my new website!!! I am really excited about this for many reasons.
First off, I love the look of it! I decided to use a template from SquareSpace, and I am quite happy I did. SquareSpace has a variety of really clean, modern templates to choose from, and they make it so easy to customize each page to make it consistent with my branding. My dear husband, who use to be a graphic designer (back in our early dating days), spent countless hours designing, redesigning, revising, and customizing my site, all while our little darlings ran around us chaotically carrying on as if mama's new website wasn't THE most important thing going on :)
Which leads me to the second reason why this website means so much to me. It represents a new era. As of TODAY, BOTH of my children are in SCHOOL FOUR days a week!!!! DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS??? It means I DID IT!!!!! I have reached the point in my life where my children are NOT home with me every second of the day, and I have TIME to work during the day and not at night after they go to sleep!! It is truly a new era!
The past few years of my life have been an absolute whirlwind. I love being a mother, and have been incredibly blessed to be able to stay home with them, while maintaining my career. I wouldn't trade that time for anything. BUT, because I love being a photographer so much, I am very excited to be able to have an actual work day! Well, I guess it's not really a work "day," as much as it is a work morning, but I'll take it. Baby steps :)
Here's to new beginnings!
