|Hi, I'm Julie ... artist, photographer, potter, etc. I am so happy you are here! I consider this blog my creative journal where I can share my recent work, ideas and dreams, and lots of little details about my life. Please make yourself at home. Whether you are a bride-to-be, a photographer, or just a visitor, I hope you will find inspiration here and even become a friend.|
Regarding the revival of my business I have a very big announcement to make! This one comes from the deepest part of my heart as an artist, photographer, and human ... so I am heavy with anxiety, excitement, and nerves as I type all of this out!
My business is seven years old this month. Happy Birthday little biz of mine ... you are in for some big changes!!!! It all started as a tearful conversation with my business mentor - who also happens to be my husband :) ABOUT how frustrated I felt with situations A, B, and C (I'll be vague about those details because that's not the good part). The good part ... is that Nick's response was short, insensitive, to the point ... and it jolted me. "It sounds like you need a new business."
"Let those words marinate for a moment before you freak out, Julie. He is right." That's me talking to myself. I do that occasionally.
So yeah, I didn't just need a new business ... but my business mind needed a revival. A fresh start. A spotless canvas. (Isn't Easter the perfect time to announce this ... I totally just put that together ... God is awesome!)
Let me also rewind for just a moment and make clear that Julie Roberts Photography isn't really going anywhere. I have a great thing here ... and I don't want to lose what I have built. I will still continue to do family portraits and weddings under this brand. In fact, I'll be sharing more families here instead of just weddings. That's good.
So the big announcement is that I have essentially TWO new businesses ... Creative Revival (which I've already announced) and Love Alive (which I'm announcing now).
