It’s Launch Day

  • Introducing the New KJ Look & One Incredible Giveaway

Today is the DAY! We made it!! After a long week of prep and the hard work of Jen Olmstead and Flosites have made it happen! In case you haven’t noticed from my instagrams this week, this isn’t an easy task. Re-launching your entire online presence is no joke! We are thrilled that it’s done and we’re so thankful for all of the amazing people that make it happen! I’m going to go ahead and thank them right now because they deserve an insane about of recognition and praise!!

– Michael : I’m sorry I’m not the nicest person in the world when I’m stressed. Thank you for your patience, support and opinions that are focused on functionality and not just the “pretty”.  Jen and I appreciate your input!

Jen : Man oh man! What a journey! You are one insanely talented woman! I knew years and years ago that it was going to be my goal to work with you one day. It’s kind of surreal that that actually happened and I now have a Jen Olmstead masterpiece of my own! Your eye, patience, positivity and vision are exactly what I needed. I had no idea just how much I needed help with this stuff until we started getting into the nitty gritty of the design. You amaze me with your ideas and ability to work your magic to fix ANY issue. I’m seriously SO in love with everything and I have you to thank!!! You are my dream designer and you went above and beyond what I could have even hoped for! Michael and I are SO thankful for your time, our design overnight and your commitment to making this PERFECT!

Flosites : Whew! We go way back!! My first REAL blog was created by you guys and I can’t believe how long it has been! I believe this is Blog #3?! I’m so thankful for your continued excitement to work alongside of us.

Tyler Herrinton : This guy. He puts up with my last minute video dreams and always makes them happen! We’re so thankful you’re in our life, Ty!! You made this new brand extra special and we’re SO grateful for your time!!

Now on to the PRETTY stuff!!! We not only have a beautiful blog for you to explore, we have an AWESOME new WEBSITE!!!!! There’s so much to see! Take a few minutes and look around HERE!!

  61. Didi McConnell reply

    I have been following you for the past 10 months and besides being an extremely talented and super photographer, you truly have the Lord’s grace upon you. You can see it in your beautiful smile. I consider myself to be a good Christian, but you have truly been blessed by our Lord. Your wedding photos sometimes actually take my breath away. I love your site and love what you and Michael have done with the new one. Both my husband and I can hardly wait for our coaching session with you in April. We are so looking forward to meeting you and Michael and working with you. We have a precious mini-doxie and are anxious to meet Bokeh, too. I hope we will be lucky enough to have you impart some of your knowledge and have our photo taken by you.

  62. Dajuan reply
