Today’s the day! It’s been such a long time coming and I have so many thoughts and feelings that they seem to have rendered me wordless at the moment. It’s all I can do to just sit here at my keyboard savoring this place in my story with nostalgia and immense gratitude. I think back to who I was when Kate Noelle Photography existed only in silent whispers and soul stirrings…. to the girl who bravely put one foot in front of the other every day believing His promise to be near even when the path was not marked. That was almost 7 years ago. Faith and determination founded this dream, heartache and experience shaped this dream, and you, beautiful YOU made this dream. All you brides and grooms, clients, friends, family, blog readers, Instagram followers….. from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
So today, a new chapter in the legacy of Kate Noelle Photography has begun and I cannot be more thrilled. A new website has launched, an all new lifestyle portraiture site has launched, and this blog is all new! In addition, there’s a wonderful custom mobile experience for those of you who are viewing from your phones and tablets. All of this has been made possible by the ridiculously talented designers at Go Live HQ... all praise and design credit goes to them. Pure talent, ladies and gentlemen!
To those who’ve journeyed with me through the rebrand process, a simple “thank you” is not sufficient for how grateful I am for your honesty, supportive feedback, and encouragement. They say it takes a village to raise a child… but I think it also takes a village to help one another live out our dreams.
So take a look around, check out both sites, and keep your eyes peeled for your own beautiful faces! There’s all new portfolios and some really cool interactive tools as well. And in case you were wondering when I’d get back on the blogging train, this shiny new blog means TONS of shiny new photos and stories to share. I’m stoked to start this new chapter and I’m excited to have you along for the ride…
“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
