the launch.

um, wow. i am still on a high from the party and show last night. i am so grateful to all of you who came out to support me and see what the new j. shipley photography brand is all about. what a blast. i so enjoyed our conversations though they were brief, and it was a pleasure getting to meet some new friends. and i must say, y'all were lookin' fly. i was so blown away by how many fun and cool people were there. what a crew i tell you.

now, as promised the new jshipleyphotography.com went live last night. so be sure to head over there and check it out. i am amped out it. and i am so excited to continue to share in this life with you. thanks for celebrating with me and thank you for being the types of people who teach me how to live well. i look forward to building new friendships and strengthening old ones and of course creating art together. let's shoot. please.
