I am so so so excited to announce some huge changes that are coming to Jessica Newton Photography. You guys. This month, is my four year anniversary as a professional photographer. Four years. Goodness me.
You know, I typically delete photos that I’ve shot after they are safely in the hands of their owners. They stay online in PASS galleries for up to 10 years so I see no need to keep 100+ weddings on my hard drive. But one thing that I absolutely can’t do and probably never will, is delete the 1st wedding that I ever shot.
I occasionally open that little invisible dusty drawer in the back of my hard drive. And I look at those photos and think about how simple things were. I was such a newb! I had no idea what I was getting into, what I was doing, or where I was headed. I answered a Craigslist ad looking for a wedding photographer and that’s how it started. I made so many rookie mistakes, but how thankful I am for that opportunity. That 1st wedding.
Big changes are coming. Changes that are bittersweet and I’m a little bit teary eyed to think of how much this may change this crazy, whimsy, little job that I’ve been grasping to now for four wonderful years. But Jessica Newton Photography has changed. It’s become something calm instead of crazy. Big instead of little. Still whimsy though. Whimsy in a way that makes me smile at the little-big job that gives me so much joy.
With all that being said, here is the 1st of many changes coming during the remainder of 2015.
Omgosh, right? Isn’t is PRETTY? Introducing, your wedding photos 2.0.
I can’t tell you how much I love getting stuff in the mail. Seriously, I LIVE for packages that arrive from sellers on Etsy. They always come in these cute little boxes or bags, with a hand written note or thank you from the shop owner. Perfect. It’s the perfect way to say thank you. In the future, clients choosing select packages, will be mailed a personalized package, hand assembled by me, when their photos are completed. Filled with all kinds of loveliness.
A small gift from me to you, to say that I love brown paper packages too. And to say thank you. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of one of the most important days of your life. Thank you for choosing me when you could have chosen someone else. Thank you.
Styles are definitely subject to change over time but I’m happy with this little creation for now. Change number 1 is here. More to come. Happy 4th anniversary y’all. We did it <3
