Photo Shoot and Website Updates {Design}

I decided it was time to get some professional shots done of myself. I have gotten pretty handy with my point-and-shoot and iPhone, but they don't always look that professional. I contacted the talented Troy Goldthorp and got some shots done. Here is a peak at the shoot:

You can see more of my website here. My blog also got a makeover to match my website and the new branding (as you can see right now and for the last couple of days).

Fudge Apples {Eat}
