It feels like forever since I’ve gone out on my own, well December was a while ago, so yeah I’ll go with forever 🙂
One of my main goals was really to focus on weddings, while I do love the babies and families, weddings are really where my passion lies. Don’t worry folks, I will still do family sessions for you 🙂
So building my brand around weddings was a huge priority. If you’ve been following me you see that I’ve got a new logo, which I love. Simple with a little funk…( love me some funky), it is my photography style.
I love capturing the little moments that happen throughout the day, moments that the newly married couple might not see. Moments when captured in a photograph snap you right back to that day.
This is me and my style.
So without further ado we get to the title of this post….Crossing off one thing from my list…
The new website! Yeah! So excited to introduce you to my new site. It was a stressful time, but I made it through with some awesome tech support and my husband (who thinks he did the whole site, ha ha, he didn’t) but I can still give him a few props!
It still needs a few tweaks, but I really do love it. Simple, funky…it’s me…..So enjoy! And please feel free to pass along the new site to all your friends and family.
We all heard the news about Facebook buying Instagram for $1B…WOW!
Pretty cool though for a small company to be so amazingly popular that Facebook would want to buy it. And not only can iPhone users utilize the app, it is also available for Android now.
I use Instagram every day, it is so easy and fun and it is a good way to keep your mind sharp!
I do a lot of driving every day.
I am fortunate that I live in such a beautiful part of the state and get to drive by the Saugatuck River, several reservoirs and lots of forests. Lots of pretty things to capture instantly, and sometimes as I’m literally driving! So I thought today I would share some of my favorite recent Instagram photos. If you’re on Instagram be sure to follow me @heidihansonphotography
So here they are:
For those of you who know me (and now those who don’t), know that I never sleep. If I get 3 hours a night that is amazing… So I often will get up and make a list of things I need to do, things that I think might make a good blog post, a little phrase to get me through to the next day, etc. So last night as I got up the song “My Favorite Things” popped into my head, you know the one from the Sound of Music…Raindrops and roses and whiskers on kittens….
So today I’m going to list a few of my favorite things (not necessarily in any order)
My daughters giggle (whether it be evil or not)
My son’s honesty (even though we pinky swear that it is a secret!)
Photography (duh, as my daughter would say, yes she is only four but very wise)
The color orange
The smell of gasoline and fresh cut grass (not necessarily together)
Massages, manicures and pedicures (who doesn’t?)
Pier 1 Imports and Target
Christmas (my favorite time of the year)
My husband’s constant support
The beach, doesn’t matter which one, just give me some sand and some water
And last but not least, a photo of one of my favorite things
What are some of your favorite things?

Not 9, not 11, but 10
