By now you have realized that a little facelift has happened over here at KortniMarie.com! Websites are like homes, always a work in progress and never done.
If you have been with me from the start, thanks for sticking around for it all. From shooting my first wedding to a new photography market with my move to Tampa, Florida, to a big pause.
The shift in my business comes out of seasons of life and what I want to pursue. I’m not saying I will never shoot another wedding, but when I look at the ten year plan of my business, wedding photography being a primary source of income is not one of the budget lines.
When I look at what I want out of my business, I want for you to be confident in your home. Whatever your home looks like, whoever dwells there, whoever speaks into your life, whatever phase of life or chapter you are in, I want to help give you the tools to be confident there.
To me, a home is made up of the space, the faces, the hospitality and you.
1. The Space: The space should be all of the walls and the spaces between as spaces and walls you are proud of. Proud of, not perfect. We will always wish for more time or dollars to invest in another project or our ideal piece of furniture or fill in the blank, but making your space work with your budget and your style.
2. The Faces: The faces that make up that home whether they are near or far should always be present. They should be present in photographs or for a simple game night or night around the fire. The faces are what make the house a home.
3. Hospitality: What is a home without hosting. That doesn’t mean it has to be often or a large number. Simply be hospitable. I see this the most through food. Food is welcoming.
4. You: Be confident in you. Invest in you. Whether that means taking thirty minutes of ‘you time’ a day or investing in wardrobe pieces that make you feel fabulous, decide what you need and fulfill that so you can give to others. You can’t give from a bucket that is empty.
Those four core pieces is why Kortni Marie exists. Kortni Marie exists to help give you inspiration and keys to making your space what you want it to be, a space that you are proud of. You can find inspiration through a weekly inspirational read or a ‘How To’ (like the abstract canvas) or help to find the right detail to bring into a room (Shop My Home or My Home Favorites) or bring beauty to your walls with the soon to be launched KM Print Shop where you can print a digital image that you downloaded at the instant of purchase to print in any size for any room of your home.
Kortni Marie exists to help bring the faces into your home. Photos are the only thing you have beyond the memory of moments together or a season of life! Make sure those moments are captured! Book a session!
Kortni Marie exists to help you be hospitable. Whether that for home decor, party decor or a menu for hosting or gifts for giving! You can find inspiration and ideas here to support hospitality and welcome those faces into your space!
Kortni Marie exists help you be uniquely you. You should always be confident in who you are and know your strengths. Whether that comes from simple daily reminders, wardrobe inspiration (Shop KM Closet Favorites) or anything in between.
This is why Kortni Marie exists and is changing. These are ways that I feel I can better serve you. I hope you will join us as we venture down a new path with this business and it will be an inspiration to your space and you to share and love on those faces in your life through a variety of different ways.
We hope you love the changes just as much as we do. We are still figuring it all out, but hope you will ride through the journey of just figuring it all out with us. We are excited to see where this little business can go and who it can serve. We would love to hear from you for all the things! Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Youtube, but also feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to hear from you! Again, thanks for sticking around.
