What an exciting week I am having! I am thrilled to finally be sharing with you all the new and improved Leah Mullett Photography! To say this project has been in the works for some time now is an understatement but through all that hard work and countless hours collaborating with Megan from Hitch Design Studio, all I can say now is how thankful I am to be here today sharing this with all of you. A year after quitting my interior design i needed something to change within my business. After praying about it for months, I knew I needed a push from someone different that could inspire me a little bit more and someone from a different state sounded perfect. I and decided why not fly out and visit the beautiful, sweet, mother, wife, and talented wedding photographer, jackie wonders. For days we talked about my hopes and dreams for my business. How different the industries are out in california verses michigan and where I saw myself and my business a few years down the road. we made a goal list together, one of my favorite hobbies. it was something jackie and i discussed numerous times during our time together so as soon as i got back the re-branding started. so this dream and goal to re-brand leah mullett photography started way back in February 2011 in san diego california. the dream was born. i never imagined that this process would be as hard as it was. so much soul searching, dreaming, visualizing what i really wanted and who i am and how i could best show that with a website is oh. so. difficult. THEN you have to find someone who can make that happen, and understand what you want … before you even know what that is. A huge thanks to Megan who has been dealing with me and my perfectionism for over a year now. i hope she still loves me. she does amazing work and this journey has been rewarding with so much self-growth coming from it, it was quite the experience.
i love the simplicity of this new site and hope you stay awhile and take a look around. Let me just say too that I run into so many people that tell me that they are blog readers but never want to leave comments because they don’t want to be a ‘stalker’ or ‘creeper’ … PLEASE friends, leave some comments here and there! Say hello!! Thats why I have this blog! I like to know that I’m not talking to myself and would love to hear what you have to say about the things I blog about! Also helps me know what you like to read and I love keeping up with my friends and readers! Don’t be shy! Introduce yourself! And maybe, just maybe this will push you a little more to do that, i think in celebration everyone should grab a tottie [aka alcoholic beverage or coffee perhaps if its before noon] and toast to a fresh start in business and new and exciting goals checked off the list. That doesn’t happen that often, more so things go on the list than get crossed off so this is a huge, huge accomplishment for me.
things are still being adjusted of course as a new launch has its glitches but just to explain some of the new features, this is a website and blog all in one so you can check out my ‘portfolio’ by clicking on ‘galleries’. The sidebar as a section called, ‘a few of my favorite things’ which is where i am so excited to share things i am loving lately however random they may be. hope you enjoy them as much as i do.
Can’t say it enough. Thank you Hitch Design for all you have done and your hard work. And for those developers that I feel as though don’t get enough ‘shout out’ time, thank you Jeremiah for your hours upon hours of setting this up as well. Couldn’t do it without a good developer! As I learned through this process.
Keeping it simple as I like to do, please just leave a comment ON THE BLOG and let me know you stopped by the new website & blog and what you think about it?! I will go through on Friday and randomly pick a winner via random.org for a $50 gift card to one of my favorite stores, anthropologie! Woot Woot! And while you’re at it, if you haven’t liked the LMP Facebook page I would love for you to do that as well so you can keep up with my blog and all the exciting things i have to share with y’all. I love giving things away and because its fun and i feel so blessed, why not. And again, we’re celebrating [wine is in hand currently, don’t’ judge … i’m excited].
