happiest of mondays.

February 7, 2011 in uncategorized

happy, happy, happy monday! the time has come for a new website for jamie delaine photography. i’ve been hesitant to make any major changes for the past two years. when an amazing group of photographers hands you a title like showit photographer of the year in 2008 & showit best web design of the year in 2009, you’re kinda left feeling, “well, if it ain’t broke, i shouldn’t fix it!” … but it was time. i’ve evolved since my website first launched & it was time for my website to reflect that.

i couldn’t be happier. once again, a huge thank you to david jay and showit for creating such a wonderful program that i have so much fun creating in. i have to thank kristy [@wrecklessgirl] for her design work on the white-washed wood background [how amazing would it be to have that in a house/apartment someday? an entire wall like that. i love wood.] — that truly was the piece that made the website come together. it’s also a big hint towards what my new blog [launching any hour/day now?] will look like.

i’ve decided to feature three couples [engagement/portrait] galleries and three wedding galleries, with about fifty photos each. then, because i simply have taken too many photos in the past year to feature only a small amount, i added an engagement favourites & wedding favourites section. some of my other favourites pages include the favourites page and my travel page. let me know what you think!

    It looks great – LOVE the favorites (I think I agree with almost all of them!) and I noticed that Manitoba is not yet visited… it’s downright cold (ok, freezing) in winter, but it’s a fantastic lil’ province in my opinion!

    Amazing, as always, Ms. Jamie!! You astonish me with your ability to be authentic in ALL that you do and it makes people (like ME!) want to be your best-est friend, so we can hang out in fabulous coffee shops and vintage-y bookstores, giggling over some random something-or-other! (and I don’t even drink coffee!) :) You’ve got a beautiful spirit and a beautiful brand to match!
