Hi Friends!

Wow, it’s 2018!  Can you even believe it?

2017 was an exciting year for me and my family. It was also a year of reflection and the beginnings of change for my photography business.   If you follow me on Facebook, you may know by now that I bought a new studio! (If you don’t follow me, you should!) The studio has been an exciting (and sometimes frustrating) renovation project, and it’s almost ready for a grand opening!!  In the meantime, I have been musing over ways to make the most of my new opportunities.

How can I…
-simplify my booking and ordering process?
– offer more of what my clients really want?
– better serve my customers?
– unite a community of incredible people who value photography and cherish these timeless memories?
-do more of what I LOVE, each and every day?

Well, I can tell you, I think I’ve figured it all out!  2018 is going to be a BIG year for Bella Marie. I am so excited to make some big changes in my business,  and I’m going to start by going back to the very beginning…

…Hi. If you don’t know me, I’m Kimberly Means.   I’m the owner and lead photographer at Bella Marie Studios, based in Warren, PA.    

I’ve been a professional photographer for over 6 years now, and I can’t begin to express how much joy it brings to my life!

I’m also a bit of an introvert and I don’t typically share a lot about me with others. I realized during my time reflecting that I have extended these tendencies to my business as well.  You guys- I have not written a post on this blog in over TWO AND A HALF YEARS!  Not any of the gorgeous weddings I’ve photographed. Not a single precious newborn baby. Not a mini session, or a beautiful family at golden hour, or even a photo of my own children. Not a single photo.

Boy do I have some catching up to do!

One of my many resolutions this year is to share with you the love I capture. I’ll be posting past sessions, new work, and also giving you small glimpses into my crazy, beautiful life.

Stay tuned to see a lot of really beautiful people as well as hear about some of my other big changes for 2018!
