More goodies arriving every day!
Gina has a real editorial sense of design, and she focused a lot of her picks on portraits of her and hubby, Bryan, so her album has the look of a luscious, timeless, durable magazine. So many of her books’ pages are my favorites. I love how great the bridal party shot looks at this giant size and the way the story ends on such a romantic note.
The black and white print and the subtle silver inscription on the opal silk brocade cover just makes my day.
I can’t wait to get this into her hands!
Well, hello, beautiful!
Michele and Brett are super-busy, so they asked me to pick the photos for their album and then used those picks as a starting point for tweaking. They had some fantastic design ideas to add!
We made the new 13×10 inch album for them, and I just love how they get these enormous 13×20 inch enlargements of some of the photos!. They look amazing at that size, too!
The Silver Spiral Designer NL cover isn’t imprint-able, so we decided to put the name and date inside the first page as part of the design.
Can’t wait to ship it off and get it in their lovely hands!
Ali’s birthday was coming up, and all she wanted was a portrait session with her mom, her fam and her sister’s family. So her mom made the call.
Ali and her sister put together a collection of vintage white dresses and shoes for the ladies and the guys were dapper in their light-colored clothes. Ali’s mom had a beautiful white couch, which we moved into the new sun room. With a white curtain pinned to a sunny wall, we ended up with a lovely white, vintage theme for some memorable photos of a very fun session.
I think Ali’s birthday present might have ended up being a gift for everyone there. Including me!
P.S. See more from Ali’s birthday portrait session on Facebook and at the web gallery.
Being a mom can be pretty funny sometimes. You wouldn’t believe the crazy stuff we mamas see! And my Facebook page was becoming one of those that they warn you about – full of posts about the kids. So I decided, as a New Year’s Resolution for 2013, to take the show on the road. I’d been reading this totally hilarious Facebook page, Honest Toddler, for a while, and I found myself craving (and creating) the alternate perspective – the one about honest toddler’s honest mother. So I started a Facebook page where I could post all about it, and it’s developed into a sweet addition to my portfolio. So you can see my faves on the website now, too, as the latest project. I hope you “like” it! ;)
Look what just arrived!
Aren’t the new matt designs, customized here for the 10×13 sized album, so cute in Ashley and Steve‘s book? Ashley had some fantastic input about the album, and even asked us to expand the book a bit so they could have more full-page and two-page bleeds. (These are just a few favorite pages from her big, bad album. And there were so many to choose from!) As always, the ability of the Renaissance book to lay flat and have a true panorama on each page is just awesome! Ashley and Steve chose the Tribeca cement cover – always a favorite! We can’t wait to hand this baby over to them this weekend!
Check out the new additions to the website:
There are fresh photos in the other sections, and more coming soon, too. So come back and visit us again and again!
I can see the first day of spring. It’s written on the calendar just a page away. I’m not sure how the little buds will wake up and crawl out from beneath this blanket of snow.
But, inspired by a short walk on one of those deep freeze days of January after a portrait shoot at Mohonk Mountain House, I have been on the lookout for all the winter textures. Coupled with a few warmer ones from my trip to Florida, perhaps it will show those little buds the way.
