authentic, beautiful life | the launch

Surprised? Maybe a little? I thought so.

It's here. Today, I officially re-launched my blog. Instead of being simply "A Stitch in Time", the blog now is more integrated with my photography business. For those of you that do not know, I am an aspiring photographer; I launched my business a few months ago. And as of today, I have launched a new part of that business, right here. I am so, so excited. This is something that I have been wanting to do for a loooong time. I wanted to find a place where I could write about life, share my own lifestyle photographs, and also post about the incredibly amazing people I'm photographing regularly. Curious about more details? Read on, my friend.

I talk and write a lot about stories when I talk about my work. I have always loved them... even when I was really little, I could usually be found reading one or making one up. (To read more on this, click on the "photography" tab above.) Obviously, as I was considering transitioning this blog into what it now is, I thought for a long time about stories. I knew I needed to share the stories of those I photograph. That was honestly the main reason for the switch. (That, and simplifying life. Of course.) So, here it is.... here is that place. Welcome, everyone.

To help you get your bearings, I want to walk you through the blog a bit. Ready for a tour? First stop is the new sidebar. Under "recent", you'll see photos from recent sessions. Click on each to view a Facebook preview album I posted on my business page. That column will be updated whenever I post a new session. The next thing to notice is that all of my pages have been completely re-done. They have been re-written with new content, links, answers, and photographs. I would love for you to take a look through those and let me know your thoughts! The followers gadget has been removed, but you can still follow via Google Friend Connect by clicking "follow" on the navibar. Also, notice that the subscription link for my RSS feed has been moved all the way to the bottom, just in case you were looking for that. Don't hesitate to let me know if you have questions about navigation for the new design.

So, what now? What does this all mean? What it doesn't mean is that I'll stop posting about typical life stuff. Oh my sweet goodness, no. You will still see plenty of posts filed "personal", the content of which will be familiar to you because it is what I have been posting from the beginning. As far as what's next? I would love for you to 1) stop by the website, which, by the way, is also in transition, 2) take a look at the Facebook page, and 3) let me know your thoughts about all of this! Please, please do this. I want to know what you all think about the change, the design, and everything else. And, of course, I'll be tweaking the design and header here and there until I am completely content, so don't be surprised if more change happens soon. ;)

Finally, I just need to take a minute and thank you all for every bit of support and encouragement all my readers have given me along this journey. It all means so much.

That is all I have for today! Welcome to the new blog, friends. I hope you like what you see.
much love.
