after many months of hard work my website and blog are complete. holy smokes, that felt good to write. WOW. it’s finished, it’s really finished!
this is such a HUGE step for me. i am proud of what i have accomplished over the past year but haven’t been proud to say, ‘my website is www.jtapscottphotography.weebly.com.’ it wasn’t professional enough. who the heck is weebly anyways? well, my weebly days are over and i couldn’t be more thrilled with how everything has blossomed.
one day a few months ago one of my friends had just announced the launch of her brand new site. i immediately clicked on her link and fell.in.love. yes, fell in love with her design, her fonts, her creativity, everything. i couldn’t stop looking it. i contacted Nikki and had to know who did this awesome work. Nikki put me in touch with Jessica, from Southtown Creative. yeah, great name right? i knew it was fate. check out Nikki’s site here! Nikki is so awesome! I will be telling you more about her soon enough. Hint: come hungry.
over the next few months i sent Jessica website designs, fonts, ideas, questions, pictures of my kids, etc. i wanted my site to be something that described me. something that was personal but professional. when she began work on my logo she asked me many questions about my personality and my vision. the most important part to me was, i wanted something different. i didn’t know what, but something to represent my 3 sons.
lord only knows what i’m going to do if i have anymore kids. lol when jessica came back with 3 different beginning options for me to look at, i cried. the first option she designed, was it! i asked two friends their opinions and they both agreed. she knocked it out of the park the very FIRST time! um, seriously… even when i look at it now.. it’s ME, it’s my kids, it’s everything i envisioned.
we spent the next several weeks working on everything. changing things, adding things all while being moms. trying hard to balance life as moms and business owners. i would watch some of her tutorials and have a huge smile on my face because i could hear her little man in the background dropping toys and running crazy. i so can relate and appreciate all of her hard work.
if you are interested in having someone design your logo, your brand, a website and/or blog, among other things, please contact Jess and tell her i sent you. you will be thrilled, just like I am!
i am so pleased to be here with you. i am so excited to have a forum to tell my story. i will be blogging about my photography sessions, things that are important to me and many, many other neat, creative topics. i urge you to ride this wave with me. the past 10 months have been incredibly joyful and fulfilling. i know i always say this, but i am thankful. so thankful for every family member who has encouraged me. every friend who has given me ideas and a shoulder to lean on. but most importantly, my clients who continue to trust in me to take their photographs. i am honored to work with each and every one of you.
well, there it is.. my first EVER blog post as Jessica Tapscott Photography. here we goooo!!!!
