Announcing:

Saturday, April 19, 2008

I'm officially announcing/debuting a little "portfolio blog" I've put together to display some of my paid photography. It's mostly for prospective clients, so they can get a good idea of what my capabilities are and feel better about hiring me.

It's funny, but I feel a bit sheepish/embarrassed to be announcing this to you guys, my friends. Like I'm PRETENDING to be some bigshot photographer or something. Well, I'm not. I'm just little ol' me... working to make a bit of extra money since I will soon be a full-time stay-at-home mom.

so since you guys are my amigos, please give me feedback. It is easy to navigate? Is it pleasing to the eye? Are the examples I've posted good enough? I will eventually get together a "real" website... one that will be even more user-friendly. But for now, in my "portfolio-building" stage, this will have to do.

Okay. I'm outta here. I just can't get over feeling like a ding-dong, self-promoting, silly wannabe girl. So I'll blush and leave.

Love y'all!

(oh yeah... the link!!! See??? I'm so silly!

  2. i don't need a portfolio blog to know that you do a great (dare i say amazing) job at taking pictures of people. again, i wish we lived closer so that i could take advantage of your skills. well, and all of us could hang out and have burrito fetes too. maybe someday it will happen....

  5. I think they look great and don't be sheepish about letting all of us know about it, you are among friends and we all want you to succeed and do great. I'm loving that newborn one with the squished face when you first go in the website.

  7. You silly girl. You sound like me every time I hand out a business card-- sometimes I'd rather bury my head in the ground than be that "silly, self-promoter". Trust me, you have something worth promoting! Love the temp blog, very easy to navigate, very cool. Nice work. I wish I were closer to you so I could learn a few things!
