Yay!!! Today is the day!!! Our new website is LIVE!!!
For years we’ve been using templates and going the DIY route for our website and blog, but we’ve always wanted to hire a professional to create a brand and custom online presence that we feel truly represents who we are and what we do…and over the past few weeks we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to finally make it happen with the help of our talented designer Meg Long from GO LIVE HQ! We’ve been following Meg’s work for quite awhile, so we knew she was the one for us, and we’re still amazed at how she took our vague ideas of what we thought we wanted and created something beautiful that we are really proud to show off, and we are SO excited to share it with you all today on this fresh new blog!
Having a new blog kind of feels like having a brand new pretty notebook and a great new pen, it inspires us to fill the pages with tidy handwriting and creativity, and it feels like we’re opening ourselves up to fresh possibilities. We can’t wait to fill these pages…
Our focus for our new brand was to keep it classic, clean, and timeless – while still incorporating our style and personalities, and we love the new look. One of our challenges has always been figuring out what we want our branding and website to visually look like, so this has been quite the journey for us. First, to decide that we were going to make the investment in hiring a professional designer, and secondly to verbalize to her and show her exactly what we were looking for when we weren’t quite sure ourselves! We’re happy that we’ve waited so many years to make this investment, because it’s taken us many years to figure out our style, our brand, and how we want to represent our business online. And if there’s one thing that we know is true in this day and age, it’s that our website is our storefront – it’s the very first and usually only impression that we make to potential clients and it’s SO important to put your best foot forward. We’ve been using Showit for our website for the past couple of years – and we LOVE how easily customizable it is, we love that we can make literally any update that we could ever dream of on our own, we love that we can have a custom mobile site (so be sure to check the new site out on both your computer and mobile device to experience them both!), and we really love that we can make custom websites for all of our inquiries and clients. Our blog is separately hosted and uses WordPress ProPhoto for the backend, which again is super user friendly and easy to update – with a custom design to match our Showit site!
