FAQ's + other "stuff" {dallas, tx engagement & wedding photographer}

More new stuff on the blog!

And while I couuuuld just let you all roam around and find it, I'm not patient enough to wait for that, plus, I'd hate for you to miss any of it ;)

So first of all, I have an FAQ page!  I've been trying to figure out what the best way is to answer some of the questions I get alooooot.  I've been answering each of your darling emails individually, but I kept feeling like that wasn't always the best way to use my time, since I was typing out the same answers to the same questions again and again.  So in order to have a place where you can all go read the answers (that I've typed out once!) I created this page.  That doesn't mean that I don't love getting your emails, (if you can't find an answer, def shoot me an email!) because they are all really soooo sweet, but hopefully this will be easier on all of us as far as giving and getting the answers you need!  There's a little tab on the right about halfway down the page that takes you to the FAQ page, check it out!  And I may be adding more questions and answers as time goes on, but there's a start at least! :)

I've added a few more things to the side-bar, AND I've added the follow box at the bottom of the blog.  I'm still debating on wether or not I want to keep it there, but for now it's up.  So for those of you who've been asking how you can "follow" my blog click it now, because it may be gone in another week or so...who knows ;)

I aaaalso added a FB like button to the bottom of all of my posts, so if you want to totally make my day, "like" my posts! ;)

And one last thing.  I'm sure some of you are wondering why my website release date came and went without any website appearing!  There's definitely a reason, I just kind of forgot to tell you :P

About a week before I was supposed to be finished with it (that was also about a week before I was supposed to leave for Canada) I realized that my stress level was rather high, and I needed to do something about it.  I had about 10 portrait sessions I was behind on editing, I was trying to keep up with normal day-to-day work, I had a website that had to be finished in the next 7 days, and I was leaving for a week-long trip right in the mix of all of that.  Something had to go...and as I tried to think of the one thing that I could let go of and it would make me feel about ten times better, I realized that it was the website.  Everything else really did have to be done (I had clients waiting on me!) but the website deadline was self imposed, and I realized that I was holding on to it and adding about 6 stress levels to my life just because of my pride, because I didn't want to admit that I couldn't do it all.

So there ya have it folks, website design has been put on hold, I'll be slowly working on it and hopefully will be able to get it up in the near future, but I'm not making any promises ;)  I value my sanity just a little to much for that.

Sorry this was such a boring little "housekeeping" type post, I have some bee-yoo-tee-ful pictures coming on Friday, promise! :)

Much Love.

Or anything that's delicious. ;) Checked out the faq -- very helpful! :) Would you then recommend buying the 50mm 1.8 versus saving for the 1.4? I'm a bit broke, soo...;)
    p.s. got your email! very excited + blessed! :)

  3. another p.s. (haha) been following for a bit now! and even before that, been reading your blog since 2009, I believe? something like that. Yeahhh...I didn't realize I could follow without the follow button until a bit ago. ;)

  4. Aha... lovely changes!!! =) And that faq page is a grand idea.

  5. The follower box is gonna boost your numbers QUICK...I promise...your lovely blog now allows those you don't know how to follow without it and those who do! :D Cause everybody in both those categories is dying to stalk you...You just gave them the perfect key to do so ;) Jk...love the faq page!
