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!
