new website launch!

The day has finally arrived--my NEW WEBSITE is live!

Planning for this site began one year ago, while I sat by the fireplace with some friends at a cottage weekend in Blueberry Lake. I was talking about my hopes and dreams for the future of my business with Jenn, and describing what I was looking for in a new website. From the other side of the living room, my friend Jordan spoke up. "I could help you with that," he remarked. And so it began.

During the last year, my amazing friend Jordan Puopolo has worked painstakingly with me on this project. Not only did he create a design that is absolutely perfect for me, but he also taught himself how to do so using Showit, a program he'd never before used. He integrated many ideas from the inspiration board I sent him, advised me on content development, showed patience as I took forever to send him all my files, and created something magical.

Most importantly, he listened. The best designers (and creatives in general) are the ones who listen, and really want to understand their clients' needs in order to develop solutions. His mix of refined talent, professionalism, and a killer sense of humour make him a true joy to work with. I feel so grateful to call him one of my closest friends.

I wished for a website that was clean, bright, cheerful and easy to navigate, and Jordan delivered on this more perfectly than I could have imagined. If you looking for design help, I would recommend Jordan from the bottom of my heart.

With the launch of this site, I feel like my web presence is finally representative of me and my business. I hope you will, too!

Ready for a peek? Here are some of my favourite pages:

The home page strikes just the mood I wanted. It's important for me that visitors feel welcome, see who I am, and learn briefly what I do, and easily get in touch. I am also so pleased to feature photos from Alex Beadon Photography throughout the site.

Next up is the portfolio landing page, which allows visitors to choose what segment of my work they'd like to see.

In the about section, I've included lots of info to let visitors learn about me and my approach to photography and life. This what I love page includes some of my favourite things.

The makeup page is something I've been wanting to add for a long time. It features a slideshow of some of my classic makeup looks, and some includes never-before-published photos.

So please, go take a look for yourself!!!! And stay tuned, because I will be announcing a giveaway later this week to celebrate the launch.
