Well, my shiny new website has finally arrived. It was really hard to let go of the old one as I designed it from scratch myself, & it’s always had good SEO, so I found it hard to say goodbye to it, but as soon as I started designing the new one, I knew I’d made the right choice. I’d love it if all I needed was a photo gallery and people would come flocking in based solely on my photos, but in the modern world presentation is all-important, and the new site certainly does a better job of giving you all the information you need to book a shoot, in a much shinier manner than before. My three main areas of business, glamour portfolios for work, boudoir portfolios for fun, and commercial photos for businesses, are all separately explained now which I think makes things much clearer.
It was actually quite fun to design, I thought it’d feel like more of a chore, but things fell into place really quickly & I ended up doing the whole thing over one very long easter weekend of 16-hour days. It also gave me a different outlet for my creativity form taking photos, which added to the enjoyment.
Anyway, hope you like it. I’m still adding and tweaking so I don’t know if it’ll ever be entirely finished, but the bulk of it’s in place now.
