newwebsite

Deleting my website and redesigning it is just something I do. I don’t mind building websites, in fact, I kind of like building them. A bit of code, doesn’t scare me at all.  So why a blog post about it?  In the past I’ve always purchased a website template that I sort of liked, but I knew I would be modifying it.  And well, I never had any success in achieving that, because the original theme was built with a page builder that just was too limiting and not user friendly.  As page builders advance I’m now able to build my own themes.  Astra, the theme here, that I created my child theme from, is super light weight and free.  Elementor the page builder is super easy, drag and drop, what you see is what you get screen makes building a website  super fast.  Elementor page builder has the tools to create a mobile responsive website. Super handy considering 38% of my website audience view my site from a mobile device. It has taken me a little over 2 weeks to build the site.  The biggest hurdle was sticking with the design I liked.  A few more adjustments need to be made but I’m super happy. My first website template built from scratch. And there would have been no way to design a single post page that looks like this! How cool is that the images on the screen slide.  To check out my full website design click  HERE.

Being a photographer I know how important it is to be able to update your portfolio regularly and to do a quick blog post without feeling it is just a bit too much. I can create a new website that is not only mobile responsive, user friendly, for you and for website visitors. Plus it will showcase your beautiful work.

Changing blending modes of the healing brush tool why it helps in keeping skin texture and provides a cleaner edit.
It has quite a while since I wanted to a beauty photoshoot with someone that is over the age of 25. First of all I have “mature” skin , I buy makeup and love good products for skin care. But majority of images that are used for marketing are fresh faced beauties that are under the age of 25. I see change happening, Charlotte Tilbury for example. So I think it’s time to celebrate being mature, it’s not a barrier to celebrating the way you look. Thank you to Sarah from @sarahkatedunnmua for nominating Sarah from Define Beautiful for being the model. A true testament to a good skin care regime

Seriously there must be something in Gladstone’s water. An absolute joy to work with @emmerealf in the studio for the first time. @sarahkatedunnmua just nailing the makeup for the night. And Kym from @yourhairdesignandbeauty worked her magic on hair. Not a bad way to spend a Friday night with three talented ladies.

Because it’s all about me. When a person who has never had a photo shoot like this before owns their space and shines. It makes me sooo happy. And that is certainly what @cococherie.96 did.

Talented @yourhairdesignandbeauty worked her magic on  @irelanddhicks amazing hair for this shoot. @shelliebellemakeup provided a quick tutorial on how to use the technical wind machine ie the white core board to add a little something to the photo.

Even though the eye makeup is bold colours and I love them. When I had the black and white layer on dodging and burning I wanted to see how the conversion would go using the @infinitecolorpanel . Well the infinite black & white colour panel.
