I am so excited to announce that I've officially migrated this blog over to a brand new (expanded) creative services site and blog!
As I've been dreaming and scheming about how to grow from a blogger to having a budding creative business, I knew the very first service I would be offering is portrait photography. I have resisted the title of "photographer" for so long because I just felt like I didn't deserve it. I felt like I needed more experience and better equipment and excuse after excuse. But this Fall, I decided to change my mindset, believe in myself, and start acting like a confident artist. Everyone has to start somewhere. I booked lots of family sessions and just fell in love with the whole learning process. For me, photography is the perfect balance of creativity and business. After 8 years of being a stay at home mom (which I wouldn't trade for the world), it feels thrilling to be tapping into that Business Degree I earned at Virginia Tech back in 2001. :) And not only that, but I get to create the kind of art I am excited about.
My plan is to roll out various different creative services, one-at-a-time, and at a pace that allows me to maintain our family rhythm. As I mentioned above, the first phase is portrait photography. Then I plan to add logo design services, art prints, branded product photography, and finally...social media consulting!
Please go visit www.BriCarlisle.com where you'll find my photography portfolio as well as this blog and all of my archives. I still plan to blog so I hope you'll stick with me! Please remember to update your feed readers to the new address (www.bricarlisle.com/blog). I won't be updating this blogger blog anymore.
Please also note that my instagram, twitter, and facebook page names have changed as well! You can find those over at the new site.
Thank you again for reading my journey all these years. It really does feel like yesterday when I quit my marketing job to stay home with my newborn daughter. And as a creative outlet, I decided to start a blog.
Join me in my next chapter?
