Changing Times. Utah Portrait Photographer.

It has been way too long since I wrote a blog post, but there are three very good reasons why.

1) Changing the Website

Do not get me wrong, I do love this dark wood and black theme going on here! However, I realize when I set it up the site, I just tried to find the most professional looking free backgrounds, made my own logo, and put it up as fast as I could. I didn’t really put a lot of time into making my site look more like the service I provide. So this month, I have been searching for something a little more me. Although I do LOVE the color black and a part of me will miss this dark black background, I  think I found something that I like even more! (It will be a HUGE difference)

2) Complicated name change. 

So about a year ago I married the love of my life and it has taken me about a year to officially change my name. Getting married is fun, changing the name is not. I postponed it and kept saying I would do it next month etc. Well, a year later- I am now “Breanna McKendrick”.

What does this have to do with Photography? Well, when setting up my first logo- I was in the limbo stage of the names change. I didn’t know when/if I was ever going to do it. So… I didn’t know what I should call my business. I know this should seem simple and obvious, but I couldn’t make a decision. Should it be Breanna Meldrum Photography? Breanna McKendrick Photography? Well, I wimped out and just went with Breanna Photography avoiding the whole last name situation. However, I have embraced the McKendrick and want it in the business name now.

3) I got a new camera! 

And I have been too busy loving it. I mean really. I feel like I just gave birth to a darling 1.8 pound, 21.1 megapixel full-frame Canon 5D Mark II!  I have been shooting with a Mark II for a while via renting. But now I am a proud owner(mother). I know Canon just released the 5d Mark III, which made the Mark II a little more affordable for me. Great deals always make me happy.


So when are these website changes going to happen?? SOON! I think my time researching sites and re-designing will be well worth the effort (even if I have sacrificed a few blog posts this month!)

In the mean time, here are a few pictures of our fun Christmas Tree that we set up this last Monday. I am sewing a Tree skirt and our christmas stockings soon! I will show those to you too when they are finished.

Did I mention this is the first year I have had a REAL tree?? It was a riot to see my husband and I try and pick one out AND get it strapped down to our Hyundai Elantra. But I must say, it is a perfectly shaped tree.
