I’ve been hoping for this day for a very long time…. but I wasn’t sure that it would ever come. That sounds dramatic but let me explain. I LOVE my website company. Showit is incredible and the more I learn about and experience other platforms for hosting and creating custom websites, the more I realize, they aren’t really, truly “custom” at all. Showit is the website design platform for the creative. Hands-down. It’s so powerful, so intuitive and so easy to use. Years ago, Showit created a way to implement a Showit theme onto a Wordpress blog!!! Genius! I couldn’t wait for my blog to be a Showit blog…. but it never happened.
Why? Because my blog wasn’t hosted on Katelynjames.com. It was custom coded wordpress blog that lived on another serve and had over a decade of content stored there. We tried multiple times to move it but it was so massive that we had serious issues. Years passed and I started to give up hope that I would ever get to experience the design freedom and creativity that a Showit-Wordpress blog had to offer. Recently, with the help of some very talented people at Showit and our amazing designer, worked together to tackle the gigantic task of getting KJ’s Blog onto a new server and fully functioning as a Showit-blog!
I’m obsessed with it!!!!
We may still have some tweaks here and there to handle…. but it’s live and it’s beautiful!
Jen, our designer, is forever patient! She’s talented and has a gift for looking beyond how things have always been and creating new online experiences while also maintaining brand elements that our people have some to know and love about us. I can’t see past what I’ve always had. I’m so limited in my view of what my online presence could be and I’m so thankful for Jen’s eye and her willingness to give me a fresh start online!
So what’s so great about this new blog?! Let me tell you!
There is so much more that I could share but I’ll just let you take a tour for yourself!
Thank you Jen for your amazing work! Thank you Nate and Kylen at Showit for being incredible resources for us with our hiccups and hurdles! So thankful for this incredible team. Our industry is unlike any other. The more we grow as a company, the more I’m realizing this at a new level and I’m grateful!

This beautiful day way unlike any wedding I have ever photographed before. It’s hard to put into words how powerful and inspiring it was.
If you’ve been following my updates since I got the R6 two years ago, you know I LOVE it!! It has been a game changer for me! But there is ONE mistake that I’ve made that cannot be fixed afterwards!
There are things that EVERY photographer should have on their website! We will walk through some students’ websites to see how small changes can impact their perceived value, and for you to see if what they’re missing is something that you are too!
You know what I’m realizing? I’m realizing I am loving getting to see people I love and miss in this very busy season of our life.
We’re gearing up for wedding season and there are so many ways to market yourself DURING a wedding to keep new clients coming in! I have been a wedding photographer for 13 years, and I have never paid for ‘traditional’ advertising!
I am eating my words again! For years, I have used InDesign for everything… but Canva had a HUGE update last year which changed everything!!
