NEW WEBSITE LAUNCH
Hey ‘audience’ (if there is such a one yet lol ) il make this welcome a little warmer I promise as I get to know you all better … meanwhile thank you for your time and checking out my new site
I have heard great things about blogging and with the addition to my shiny new website I thought no better time to start than now - I’m all new to this blogging carry on and I’m a nightmare with Literature so please take my apologies in advance for my misuse of dots, wrongly placed commas and really bad spelling and grammar … but I hope you can just about still make out what I want to say … if not il say it with a medium and language I’m most fluent in, that being, you guessed it - photography 😆
Ok let’s start …
i want to start by showing you around my new site … as a graphic designer (by trade) you can only imagine how extremely fussy i am when it comes to colours ,layouts and easy on the eye text and overall design , i wanted to give you all good content though i believe i have got a little over excited in areas, but i hope my rambling doesn’t bore you too much lol please forgive a few teething problems here and there as its still a working progress. but meanwhile understand why it has been created in the first place …
a lot of people will have connected my wedding photography to my other brand www.c2photographyanddesign.co.uk but for 2019 and beyond I have decided to now run my wedding photography under my personal brand www.akphotographer.co.uk - I hope this doesn’t confuse you all too much but its a transition that needs be :) so please bare with me and that the move over is an smooth one , While hoping I can still be found out there in the World Wide Web (ekkks ) .
C2 photography and design will now be associated with my organic studio portraiture of maternity , newborn ,children and families , as you are more than likely at the early stages of your wedding planning i’m presuming you don’t want to go there just yet haha …so lets stay focused on one thing at a time - but please note that as a gesture we don’t forgot about you over at c2 and all our booked wedding couples get their first portrait session complimentary to use for their first born or first wedding anniversary or if family is on hold a little after the hectic stress of the big day and you value your freedom for a little longer , we also welcome with open arms your furry friends to our studio :) but anyhow, we don’t need to worry about all that baby stuff now but just something to keep in mind when the confetti settles …
when developing my new website I have read so many expects advice on how to write about yourself on your website - for anyone undertaking this daunting task will agree it is so darn hard , I know exactly the kind of person that I am ( I definitely chat a lot for one and I know i’m a good wee soul ) but its hard sometimes to put your best qualities and characterises into words without sounding egotistical and a bit ‘ here’s me and who’s like me ‘. I find that words aren’t a true repetition of a character and you need to be in the presence of people’s energy to get a true feeling and connection for who they are - that being said I am very much a person that gets on well with all and have in many occasion booked couples online without meeting , although personally I love meeting my couples in person , sitting down with a cuppa in my cosy studio and chatting everything photography and about your plans for the big day ( and food if I go off on one haha ) that’s right one other major thing about me is im very much a foodie - I have educated myself though out the years to be cautious about caring for my mind, body and soul. and one of these elements being food and nutrition il not get too deep with you just yet as we’ve just met but if curious you can find out more about this in my ‘other’ website www.akcreativelifecoach.com .
