Okay, so I've been waiting to do my 2nd blog post until I have all the goods to announce my new logo, complete with a new website and printed materials. It's been said that you need to be consistent with blogs, and I could've written one in the meantime but it's time consuming being a mom, photographer, and part-time retouch artist and assistant. Every day is different, but most days go something like this:
Wake up and get ready
Wake the baby and get her ready
Feed the baby
Start a task
Play with the baby
Start a second task
Change the baby
Go back to the first task
Tend to the baby
Take Emma for a walk with the baby
Feed baby a snack
Read to the baby
Get baby to take a nap
Work furiously on to-do list while baby is sleeping, getting distracted by little things that are actually big things like updating my invoice template with the new logo.
Start second task over
Take baby out to play
Do laundry...maybe tomorrow
Feed the baby snacks
Try to clean up the aftermath of the tornado that is our child, furiously before the hubby gets home
Finish the first task when daddy gets home
Feed the baby dinner
Bath time for the baby
Three books and then bed time for the baby
Contemplate working and then have a glass of wine and watch educational photography videos online
Hmm, maybe it even sounds as exhausting as it is. But enough about my day, how was yours??
Back from my tangent...I heard somewhere before I became a mother, that your outlook on life changes after you have a baby. Weirdly enough, I found that my outlook on my logo changed. I have been in business since April of 2008 and I have LOVED my logo since the day I designed it. But after my daughter was born, I found myself looking at it and not feeling the happiness and sense of pride it brought me before.
In February of last year, I met Kristi King and photographed her spunky little Scottish Terrier, Hank Williams. When I went to her house for her planning consultation, I fell in love with her and her unique style. She reminded me so much of my husband that I ended up bringing him with me when I delivered her order. Kristi is a graphic designer and it is her I have to thank for my amazing new look. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, KRISTI - I LOVE YOU!!
So here it is, the new logo and look. And check out the website (www.kristin-adams.com) as it has gotten a makeover as well.
Prices have been updated too and a new product is available: The Framed Gallery Piece. This includes one professionally printed Classic portrait finished with an archival double mat and a simple 1½” black frame and glass. A beautiful and classic way to display your favorite portrait!
Bonus items are now available as well. These are fabulous gifts at different levels of investment.
I have a couple of new sessions to share with you in addition to my classic session:
Please contact me for more information. I hope you love the new logo and website as much as I do! I promise to post more often and work on consistency.
