Step 2: Cut and paste sections from the templates that you want to use for gift tags onto your 8.5x11 document. Replace the text with "To" and "From". Here is an image of what my four 8.5x11 pages looked like (they are shown together only for sharing here, I printed them as 4 individual pages)
Step 3: Print your 8.5x11 pages onto cardstock or Full Sheet Adhesive paper (for those that you want to stick on). The adhesive paper can be found at most office supply stores. It is the same thing as label paper, only it fills the entire page instead of numerous little labels.
Step 4: Cut your labels out using a paper cutter or sharp scissors. For rounded edges you can use a corner punch or use your scissors to follow the outline of the labels.
Step 5: Once you have all of your labels cut out you can gather up packaging supplies and start creating beautifully wrapped gifts.
We traveled to Italy for 10 days recently for a wedding in beautiful Orvieto, and extended the trip into a roadtrip down the coast. Our itinerary looked a little bit like this: We flew from JFK straight to Milan, and took the scenic route to Cinque Terre by stopping in the gorgeous little towns of Santa Margherita and Portofino! After two nights in Monterosso al Mare, we drove through Florence to stay for a night, Orvieto for two nights for the wedding, and down to the Amalfi Coast for 4 nights!
When I was trying to figure out what I wanted my new studio to say to my clients I realized it was much more about how I wanted them to feel. I want to transport them to New York City to the set of Vogue or Vanity Fair magazine. In reality, the studio is located in an collective artists studio in a refurbished old rice mill called The Silos on Sawyer. My style of Intimate Portraits soon became a luxury experience to the women that come through the studio.
Film or Digital? This is the question for the ages. Over the past five or so years, there has been a huge resurgence of film shooters in the market, and I think that freaking rocks. Not because I think film is better than digital, but because I love variety. I applaud people using whatever medium they adore the most to create things they’re proud of and that others can enjoy. My suggestion for all of you is to not feel locked down to one or the other. The truth is that film and digital are both awesome, and if we learn a bit about them both, we can use each of them to benefit our shoots in different ways.
