So far, this year has all been about changes. A new website and brand, new office and studio; offering film alongside my photography; a new home…..Oooh and a puppy, but she will arrive later on in the year after I have fitted new carpets and put new furniture in our new home… What am I thinking?
WEBSITE // A few people have said “didn’t you just rebrand a couple of years ago?” Yes, I did. But things change. My business has evolved so much in such a short space of time; I am constantly testing myself and pushing myself to improve and learn; change naturally comes with that. Melissa Love at the Design Space was recommended to me by the fabulous Lisa Devlin. Melissa is utterly tremendous. She instantly “got me” and understood exactly where I wanted my brand to go. I can’t recommend her enough. Thank you, Melissa – I frickin’ LOVE my new site.
OFFICE // A new office and studio has been a wish for a few years now. It’s difficult working from home with two little ones about, not only when I’m editing but also when I have photo sessions here or meetings. So when I asked my husband (as a joke) “can you build me an office please?” I didn’t expect a YES! Neil is bloody amazing; he has done everything. If only I’d known all of his capabilities years ago, I would have milked it way more. I’ll write a blog about my office and Neil’s wonderfulness soon, as I feel it needs its very own write up when its all finished…….soon!
FILM // Film is something I have been thinking about for the past 12 months. So I went to the amazing Hannah Millard who has so successfully combined film with her photography over the past couple of years. Not only is she super lovely, knowledgeable and talented she has also been a constant support to me when I’ve needed advice. Thank you, Hannah. I have fallen head over heels for film, I love it! To have a peep at my first couple of films have a look here: https://vimeo.com/search?q=rocksalt+photography
HOME LIFE // We are moving….again! This will be our son’s fifth home; we will be moving in a month, just before his 5th birthday. So to say we’ve moved a bit over the past five years would be an understatement. But this is THE move. Up to Neil’s family farm where Neil will farm and I can use the land for pretty photos! Bringing the children up on the farm has always been the dream so we’re very excited to get up there at the end of the month.
So that’s 2016 so far. No chance of things quieting down as wedding season (& lambing – yes I will have to get involved with all that jazz now)! is just around the corner.
