Never too late to say happy new year.
As I may have mentioned ( a bazillion times ) our son, Finlay William Emerson was born in November, 2012. In anticipation of this, I began to wind everything in a little. The Google ads stopped, the Facebook page had tumbleweed blowing around, I stopped blogging and my SEO campaign ( such as it was ) ground to a standstill. I have had a great year getting to know my son. It hasn't been easy but it has been, in turns, humbling, joyous, frustrating and heart-wrenching.
As desired, the bookings and enquiries dried up and Emerson Photography had a hiatus. Now begins the somewhat daunting task of kickstarting a semi-dormant business. I didn't stop altogether though, working at some beautiful weddings from Darlington, through Durham, the Lake District and even on the Isle of Skye. Towards the end of the year, I introduced "mini-sessions" to my portfolio - 20 minute family / kids portrait sessions. These have gone down a storm and as soon as all this mud disappears, they'll be firmly back on the menu. The north east dog photography revolution has been incredibly busy this last year too.
The upshot of all this is that I hope you'll see a fair bit more of Emerson Photography over the coming months - I've never had a forceful marketing strategy and that won't change but I am now back in the room and looking forward to getting back to the fray :-)
