Something you may not know about me is that I work full time as a graphic design instructor/designer. So as part of 2013 being a new, better chapter for my photography business I thought I would start incorporating some of my design skills.
One of my lovely return clients, the Hogan family, called on me to photograph their son’s Graduation portraits last weekend. When I mentioned that I can design the Grad party invitations they we’re both relieved and excited. They trust my work and we’re thankful to have it off their plate.
I offered two front side options:
She chose the cap and gown version. And when I sent the first option for the back, she loved it! Easy peasy :)
I sent the files off to the printers last night and I can’t wait to see them when they return.
I’m going to be offering more design services for my photo clients going forward. You can expect to see Save the Date cards, wedding invitations, graduation announcements, and custom thank you cards.
I’m very fortunate to have such a supportive and trusting clientele, and I hope that I can return the favour by upping my game this year.
Congrats Marshall on your graduation!
Jessie and Melissa are getting married this coming October and I’m super excited for it!! These two are so crazy in love, seriously…you guys should see the way he looks at her. It melted my heart.
Melissa and I have been in contact for a few months now, talking and planning their shoots for the engagement and the big wedding day. And can I just say, I love organized folk! Girlfriend knows what she wants, and I love that. But at the same time, super down to earth and easy going. When she mentioned that her and Jessie we’re going to be home for a week in May it seemed like the perfect timing to arrange their engagement session.
We started out on Saturday evening at Dominion beach, which by the way, is totally in mid-construction. So it was a little tedious getting on and off the beach. It was cold, windy and the sand was so softly packed that you sunk up to your hip in places. But we had a good laugh about it.
In spite of how pretty it was, it was darn cold, so we wrapped up early and decided to reconvene Sunday morning out Louisbourg on the trail. Seemed like a rational place to go, they and I were both staying in Louisbourg anyway, plus that will be the location for their wedding photos.
I loved how their photos came out, and so did they. So much so, that they ordered a photo guest book for their wedding day. (Which are totally off the hook and a great way of adding some extra personal touches to the wedding itself)
Thanks again Jessie and Melissa! I cannot wait until October!!
My cousin Stacey just has her first baby, a bouncing, giggly baby boy named Cooper. Just 4 months old when I photographed him this past March, he was full of smiles and an utter ham for the camera. For my first session of the year, I couldn’t have asked for a better model! Plus his momma is a stunner so incorporating her into some of the shots had it’s perks as well.
I’m thrilled with how they turned out!
Isn’t she gorgeous!
He’s a sucker for kisses from Momma
