Amanda's Personality Shoot

It's totally funny to me how things work themselves out, ya know. One of the cooooolest things about my job is the relationships you build. Last year at Ash and Shawn's wedding I meet all her brides maids, naturally.... Well one of these brides maids is miss Amanda. Through having a relationship with Ashley I've developed a relationship with Amanda as well. Which is by far one of the perks of my job :D

Recently Amanda decided to put her schooling and design skills to work, and to start her own business in graphic design. Some of you might remember a while back she started "An Occasional Design" making invitations and things of that nature by hand (which were awesome btw) and she's recently made the switch over to creating things digitally to incorporate the rest of her talents. If you haven't checked her out, you'll want to do so she does great work. I know this from personal experience.... she recently designed a pamphlet for me. Now, I'm a total control freak and was worried that I wouldn't get what I was going for if I used someone else. NOT the case! I'd have never thought of what Amanda put together and I totally love it!!! It matches my site, my personality, and everything I want to showcase to a potential client!

Here is just a little peak at what she came up with for me:

For the rest you'll have to head on over to her blog! :)

Amanda will soon be launching her website, and needed some shots of her for the site... Neither of us are morning people, but we both got up like troopers and headed out to the beach shortly after day break to take advantage of the gorgeous light at sunrise (or shortly there after)

The girl has these beautiful sparkly blue eyes that just catch light like no body's business... I've got to admit I'm a little jealous.... LOL

And, I always think it's super important to put your personality into anything you do, if you're starting a business, I think personality shots are the way to go vs. a traditional head shot I just think it makes you seem so much more open, friendly, and you know..... normal.... ;)
