This is something that I have thought about, mulled over, and agonized over for months and months. What pray tell? Should I change my website and move to a different company that has more formats that I find bright and intriguing. A new home for my clients photos as I am growing my business or should I stay where I am. And as of late, I am beginning to feel more excited and ready to do more. Ready for a change. Something new. Many new things. But something much deeper and more important than that has been brewing within the business part of my mind.
Something I have had difficulty with for the past 3 years,( there I said it), is deciding on a Logo for my business. We have several photographers locally named Laura as well and some of us like the same colors and I simply did not want it to appear as if I was being a little copycat. Lol. I know these ladies would not have been offended by a similar logo. We are all different people with different skill sets and different photographic specialties. Meanwhile, I have been biding my time, always pondering the logo issue. Sketching and doodling on scraps of notebook paper as one does when a thought hits you. Yet never in a hurry to decide. That fault is mine alone and lies solely with me.
And then there is branding? How, what in the world to choose?? My mind would just spin. What to do? So, I took the easy way out and just put the decision off. I have been reading about what specific colors signify in business and will probably use that as a guideline. But I won't use a color I consider horribly ugly just for the sake of its meaning. I don't consider that being true to myself.
I have taken several photography workshops this spring and wouldn't trade that experience and knowledge for anything. We all learn at different paces and in different ways. Sometimes family circumstances prevent us from plowing ahead with our new found knowledge because our mind and heart are being pulled to take care of those necessities. The back burner is there for a reason, to set things down that don't have to be immediately handled. It is not that those things are unimportant, it is just that they can take a breather and cool off while we focus on the most important things.
Blogging is another aspect of the business that I would like to spend more time doing. I have always loved to write and it is truly therapeutic and can be quite calming. Calmness is a necessary trait.
My plan is by the end of the week to have accomplished these long sought after goals and in many ways...........start again.
