I take it back.

I just didn't feel comfortable there.

So I came back.

I did want to change the email address it was connected to though, so I have a new blogger blog. I finally figured out how to simplify my template and have bigger photos! So I am very happy!

Here is the new link:

New Blog

I just couldn't get my new blogger blog to look like I imagined. I wanted bigger pictures and a cleaner layout, so I moved to typepad.

I will be sharing my thoughts here from now on: Molly Alisa Blog

When I have them. Ha!

Okay, so maybe the daily thing isn't going so well. Ha!

I have been doing photos almost daily, but now I am trying to start a blog that matches my business name, that will be essentially the same as this one. It will not be a business blog. I wouldn't bother with it at all if I didn't love to write so much.

I feel a little swamped lately. Things aren't going as quickly as I expected but I am so okay with that.

We are working on contracts and release forms. We are also looking in to business insurance for our equipment and property.

The site is ready but not up because I am not ready for clients yet.

I wish my fairy godmother would magically do all of the business details perfectly for me and I could just hide behind my camera. Hehe.

I am anything but business-minded.

I continue to think of ways that I can give back with my business and it seems I have not had a specific one click yet. I have so many ideas, I wish I could do them all. But I think I need to find one to focus on, especially at the beginning. If anyone has any ideas, feel free to share them! Especially if you know a group or ministry that could benefit from photography somehow.

Alright... pictures.

I am thinking about beginning to blog daily w/ photos in an effort to push myself towards lifestyle photography.

It is at the core of the style I am working so hard to develope. I keep getting side tracked and I feel it may give me focus.

My site is mostly ready. I am still awaiting some critique on it. It will be up very soon.

For now...

I am editing all day to prepare photos for my site.

They are all over. I need to be more organized. But it should be up soon!

Tonight I meet with Meghan to see the designs she came up with for my website.

We are planning to launch the business site by the end of this week.

I will be handing out coupons, so the people helping me ease in to business will not be doing so at full price. Feel free to e-mail me if you would like one.

More soon.

New Name

I have decided that when I start my business, I will be doing so under my first and middle name. This was the name I sent in to publishing houses and I had always planned to use it for photography as well. Then it just kind of happened that I was using my first and last name on my watermark. But I wanted to change it now before any real business was underway.

I am still not sure when I will open a business...

I still feel I have so much to learn. But what photographer doesn't? A business is probably likely in the next few months.

Since I completely missed sharing any holiday photos.... a few from Christmas this year. Happy New Year.
