Hi + Welcome! Session Giveaway to celebrate my website launch!

It’s so good to have you here! Welcome to my new web-home, the place where you can find not only my most recent work, but my heart + why behind the work that I do. Before getting to the giveaway, I wanted to take some time to go through what the process of getting here was like!

If you are new here, my name is Olivia – I am wedding + couples photographer based out of New Orleans, but I travel for about 50% of the weddings I take on each year! I’ve recently spent a ton of time doing deep dive work on my business with the wonderful Buffalo Collective in order to accurately showcase exactly what my business believes + who I’m excited to work with!

Over the last 6 months I have been working with Christina from The Buffalo Collective on “branding” + website overhaul for my business. For those outside of the industry, “branding” essentially means developing and honing in on the consistent details, voice, and ethos that you see represented in a business.

On a very basic level, Christina led me thru a deep dive of colors, lines, and fonts in order to create visual branding pieces. Think logos, brand marks, color palettes – these are the things you’ll find on any documentation, print materials, email signatures, etc! Here are some of the things Christina came up with for me!

In addition to creating logos + brand marks to use, Christina also did a complete overhaul and customization of my website. I have been obsessed with Christina’s work since I first started my own business – I’ve bought website templates from her in the past, and I was drawn to her work because she creates clean + simple, but incredibly meaningful designs. I *knew* the logos, brand marks, and my website would be *visually* beautiful if I worked with Christina, but I was not expecting what an amazing process overall this would be!

Perhaps the most valuable piece of working with Christina over the last 6 months was the process she took me on of doing deep-dive work on who I am not only a business, but a person as well. Besides having a website that looked “good,” one of my biggest goals in this process was to have website copy (content) that truly communicated who I am, what I am about, and what you can expect from me if we work together.

If you haven’t ever done a process like this – it’s tough work! Several times while writing I panicked or got frustrated. After several (ok, more like TONS) of drafts on the copy + some guidance from Christina, I ended up completely rewriting the content of my website to what we have now. With some gentle nudging from Christina to step out and write what I *truly* am about, I feel so sure that the content reflects exactly that. I put everything of me into the writing on this site.

Though I would DEFINITELY recommend reading thru my site in full, if I had to summarize the main points of what I 1. Want you to feel when working with me and 2. the ethos in which I am building my business on, it is this:

If you have made it this far – THANK YOU! I appreciate you more than I can say, and I have loved hearing kind words from so many of you about my new website!

And to Christina – this is more than I could have ever imagined! Your guidance, expertise + patience with me has been the absolute best and meaningful experience!

  1. Abbi says:

    I LOVE the new look and feel of the site!!

  2. Elizabeth says:

    Love your updated site! It has been so insightful to read about you and your business! We will be meeting you at an upcoming wedding in Hawaii celebrating Abbi and Kris. While I would selfishly love a couples photo session, I think I would want to gift the prize to my mom + dad who would love some family portraits of the whole fam, as we have very few of us all together (3 sibs + partners + 1 granddaughter)

  3. Molly cocco says:

    So so so excited to try to make it work to get pictures with you!! The best in the game!

  4. Hanna says:

    Would love to win because I could meet you in NOLA OR MICHIGAN in 2021. ๐ŸŽ‰ I live in Houston but I am a Michigan girl. Lots of big changes this year for my family so it would be awesome to have you document this stage.

  5. Brigitte Schell says:

    I would absolutely love to win a session with you! My son is 2 in January and we are yet to get some updated family photos. Family life is crazy, time is flying by and Iโ€™m afraid I wonโ€™t have enough shots of us all together. I absolutely love your style and energy, your work is beautiful, and my friends who know you have told me such amazing things! I live in Honolulu. ๐Ÿ™‚ @misabreezyfosheezy on IG

  6. Casey I says:

    Beautiful site! You continually perfect your art and this craft!!!! You can definitely feel the positive vibrations and energy radiating! I have not been able to document the two boys professionally together and would love the opportunity to do so with you! So fingers crossed! Aloha- Casey

  7. Andrea Boudreaux says:

    You are so very talented and your new site is amazing! Iโ€™d love to win a session with you to capture amazing family memories!

  8. Lauren Strich says:

    There is no one else that can capture a moment like you can! I want someone to see my farm through my eyes, and I know youโ€™re the one that can make it happen. So looking forward to you coming to TC!

  9. Jasmine says:

    I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and thanks to covid we had to cancel our maternity shoot as well as newborn photos. Either my husband or I are behind the camera so itโ€™s hard to get us all in one shot. I would love this.

    • Olivia Yuen says:

      oh no!!!! I’m so sorry your maternity shoot got cancelled and your newborns!!! congratulations on having your baby girl – I hope she is healthy and loved!! <3 <3

  10. Bubz says:

    Would love to win because I have never LOVED a picture as much as my family photos you took for us a few months ago!!! Not to mention every other photo Iโ€™ve seen of yours! Your work is fabulous and I felt super comfortable during our sesh! Your photog skills are ON POINT! โค๏ธ And we are leaving the Houma area this coming summer! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Olivia Yuen says:

      sorry, because you are leaving the area next summer you are disqualified from this giveaway ;)…. only if you stay until we leave will you be re-entered hahahah ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. Araceli Whitwam Sell says:

    Hello my sweet friend. Your updated site is a beautiful reflection of you and your passion for your craft and life! Iโ€™d love to win a photo session with you. My husband and I never had wedding photos taken. Sixteen years later, itโ€™d be great to have a couples photo session. By the way, Iโ€™m going to become a grandmother in Feb of 2021, finally!

  12. Maka says:

    I see you every time you come to Oahu, but really, I canโ€™t decide if it should be pictures w/ Jon because we ultimately donโ€™t have any nice photos together, or if I would do pictures with my mom, who is getting up there in age & the last nice photo we have together is from years ago.

  13. Miyako says:

    Would love to win and gift to my parents for their wedding anniversary!

  14. Kim says:

    Love this!! Itโ€™s been so fun to watch your business and brand grow. Loved our experience with you and canโ€™t wait to do it again ๐Ÿ’•
