In the interests of transparency, I wanted to share a little bit of personal information about myself (before we get to the fun stuff!!).
They say that change is as good as a holiday. I don’t really know who “they” are, but I guess they are right in many ways. The last 5 years has seen so much change for me, both personally and professionally. I’ve grown and reflected, and moved into such a different version of myself, and I’m proud of who I am and what I’ve become. There have been all kinds of “whoah” moments, and the realisation that change is good – no, change is GREAT – when you let it be.
When I started my business many years ago, I was married with one baby…then came babies 2 and 3. And then one day down the track, my marriage ended, and suddenly I was raising my children by myself (but with the most wonderful network of family and friends helping us out, and for that I am eternally grateful).
Divorce is so often seen as a bad thing, however it’s truly not always the case. Sometimes it’s like a “healthy pruning”, as a friend once said to me.
And so, with the change in direction that my life took, so did many other parts of me…including my name. Karen Pfeiffer Photography had served me well for so many years. But one of my dilemmas was that although my business itself wasn’t changing, the name didn’t “fit” anymore.
And so, with the help of the wonderful Terri from Pure Design, who has been ever so patient with me (please contact her via her email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you require any branding or design, she’s amazing!!), I am now proudly sporting the business name Karen Lynch Photography.
I knew from the get-go that I wanted to incorporate my children into my branding somehow, and so my new business logo is the exact same as the tattoo on my left wrist, which I got in 2015 for my children. It has a heart for each of them. Terri also added the circular component in the crown, with this representing a camera lens. It’s perfect, it’s very “me”, and so I’m thrilled to launch it.
(And for the record, this change IS as good as a holiday!!!!!)
