After 2 1/2 years I've finally decided to get a blog set up. I always thought if I had a facebook page or website I wouldn't need one BUT right now my facebook page is kind of a catchall place for A Shields Photography; because of that some things I post just get hidden. Obviously posts with CUTE babies are going to get WAY more attention than say a post showing the difference between 3 different canvases (more on the canvases coming soon).
I thought the blog would help me keep facebook primarily for clients preview photos (& of course the Quote Contest too)! I think everyone's favorite part after the shoot is sharing photos so all your friends and family can see them and lets face it facebook is pretty much the BEST for that! My website will still have all the info, pricing, photo restoration, contact me, etc. & the blog will be for everything else: places Calvin & I road trip to, props I make, posts about upcoming price changes, things I think are helpful before/after you photoshoot, etc.
I also REALLY like that you can subscribe to our posts with your email address! If we make a post about upcoming price changes, discounts we are having, or whatever you will get an email about it! Unlike facebook you won't miss out if you aren't logged in at the "right time."
That's all for now but there will be much more coming soon!
