Please Excuse My Mess

I'm so happy that you are here! However, you've caught me in the middle of a temporary blogging hiatus.

Kevin and I are in the middle of our huge move from Fort Wayne, Indiana...

to Phoenix, Arizona...

and I am taking some time off while we get settled in our new city.

I don't know how long I will be gone, but don't worry.... I will be back!

While I am very excited to get my business going again in Phoenix, I have lots of legal ducks to get in a row...

before I can open my photo session schedule.

I will also be busy scouting out new shooting locations in and around Phoenix, so I will be ready with tons of great ideas as soon as I am able to start accepting clients again.

In addition, I will be busy writing a series of blog posts that I have been planning for a while now, sharing tips on how to take better photos and detailing my method of shooting in manual mode.  I may even toss in a post or two on what I've learned so far about starting up a photography business while I'm at it.

I will be making major updates on my website...

I will be busy updating my photo galleries, and reworking my session and print options.

I will also be doing a bit of clean up on my blog, as I have recently realized that I have a lot of broken links and missing photos from when I moved over from another blogging program.

I've also decided that it is time for MWP to have a logo. So, I will be trying on some different options to see what feels like a good fit. Don't be surprised if you stop by one day and see a blog that it purple and green, only to find it red and orange the very next day. I'm going to be playing with colors, and styles, and fonts, and layouts, until I find one that feels like home. Once I do, I will be having a logo designed to compliment it.

So, please excuse my mess while I make all of these much needed changes and updates.

If you want to see what I am up to, you can always check out facebook or twitter, where I will continue posting updates while I am on my blogging hiatus.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by! I love hearing from readers, so while you are here why don't you leave a comment and say hello? :) If you are a fellow photog, please leave me a link to your blog and I will return the visit.

  1. Good luck to you! It's finally happening! :)

  2. Thanks Jen! I know. We are so excited. :)

  3. Well it looks like you're moving from one beautiful place to another. Good luck with everything!

  4. Thank you, Ashley! We are looking forward to settling in to our new location in Arizona.

  5. Good luck, I'm so happy for you!!!

    Thank you for your kind comments regarding my father's recent passing. It meant a lot that you remembered me and stop by for a visit. I do hope you'll visit agagin.

    Following you now.

    I tried to "like" you on facebook but I must be blind because I'm not finding that button for some reason.

  6. Thank you, and you're welcome. I will definitely be back to check on you from time to time. You did like me on facebook already. Once you like a page the like button disappears. My posts and updates should be showing up in your news feed now.

  7. I didn't realize I'd liked you already. Guess that explains it, then! lol

    Stopped over because it looked like you had a new post but I guess it must not be ready yet.

  8. Thanks for stopping back by! It wasn't quite ready but I have a new post now. I'm officially off of my hiatus and back to blogging.
