WHAT IS KITBASH? JEFF TELLS ALL.

Hello ARP family!

Jeff here. Way, way back in May of 2013, I announced my plan to start a branding agency. Here is the link to that post for those interested. With the help of the wonderful Allison, Kitbash launched and I have been growing it ever since. 

I know you are asking yourself, "What is a branding agency?" Don't worry. It is the most common question that I get. Essentially, it’s a graphic design firm with a focus on a company’s overall brand. Think about Apple and how everything associated with them from the MacBook to the iPhone has a cohesive feel to it. Even their packaging is extremely thought out. That is what we do for our clients- help them present the best version of themselves to the world. We show what makes your company unique. This includes creating logos, websites, business cards, letterhead, print or digital ads, t-shirts...the list goes on and on. 

Check out our new site at getkitbashed.com and tell me how much you love it. If you feel like this is something you need, let’s get together and talk shop.

Introducing The ARPcrew!

15 WEEKS AGO VIA SOCIAL MEDIA :

"I want my business to feel like an awesome party. One where I get to hang out with my friends, and make cool stuff for people we love. — A" 

When I made this post, I was in the middle of deciding the future direction of ARP. I realized that after 10 years of business I could continue down the same path, or I could choose to take a completely different one.

I love what I do. I love what WE are asked to do for our ARPfamily of clients, and I LOVE the "WE" in that statement. Cultivating and growing the ARPcrew is a passion of mine, and over the years I have had some amazing crew members - people that I consider family. So, I decided that I wanted to "grow" the ARPcrew a little differently. 

I love this business that Jeff and I started in 2004, and the time has come to share it with other creatives. For the first time ever, we have hired PHOTOGRAPHERS! If you've been around me long enough, you know I'm a BIG IDEA GAL, and with more photographers and an awesome Studio Coordinator, we're going to make those big ideas happen!

So, let me introduce you to the new ARPcrew :)

Haley Edmiston : Studio Coordinator - She really is the one that keeps us crazies in line, and you'll love her southern charm. She's in charge of all things "ARP," and there's no way we could go on this big adventure without her.

ME : Creative Director / Photographer - I'm still around and shooting a limited number of Custom Sessions as well as stepping into my super exciting role as the Creative Director of ARP.

Rebecca Dodson : Photographer - Not only is Rebecca one of our amazing new Photographers, but with a background in Interior Design, she's also great at using your images to create custom designs for your home. Rebecca will be working with our ARPkids, ARPfamilies, ARPseniors, and she'll be in your Ordering Appointment! Rebecca had a wonderful photography business in Florida for years, and I knew the second I met her that she would be a perfect addition to ARP.

Kellie Conlon : Photographer - Let me just say that Kellie is the BEST newborn photographer I know, and I am beyond excited that she'll be taking care of all of our ARPnewborns and ARPbabies. Newborns are intense sessions, and Kellie's work is amazing! This fine art approach is something that I am thrilled to bring to our family of clients.

What does the future of ARP look like? Well, there are just so many things to tell you, but for now, I just wanted to start the introductions.

We've officially started an Instagram account (@allisonrodgersphotography) so look for us there :) Announcements for some fun events and special sessions will be happening soon, so keep your eyes open!

We like the sound of that :)

These two have been part of our ARPfamily for a very long time!
Not only do they make an awesome couple, but they have 3 adorable boys :) 

We've loved watching this family grow over the years, and we were so honored when Wes & Kristi asked us to tell the story of their big day.

The attention to detail at this wedding was amazing :) Chad Conley had a vision for this event, and he created such a beautiful envirnoment for these two to tie the knot!
