making valentine's day even sweeter with personalized cards
Today's lovely share comes from Colleen Hernandez of Fournineteen Photography.Â She writes, "This simple little round scalloped Valentine's Day card is a 'thank you' from me to one of my favorite, and regular, clients. I used a photo I had taken during their holiday session and tucked it away for this little gem. I then searched my Design Aglow collection of custom products to find the design that fit them best. The background from one of the Classic Monogram Cards caught my eye... and will hopefully catch their valentine hearts! To frame the image, I used the ornate shape from the downloadable printing guideline on MPixPro.Â I can't wait to deliver this and say 'thank you' for all of the family moments they have allowed me to photograph.
The Classic Monogram Collection is simple and can be used for SO many different design presentations. I use it for cards, albums and accordion minis all the time! It made making this card a cinch! When I spoke with my client about making these, she was so excited! Although I always do their Christmas card, and it has become an expected arrival at all their friends and families homes, now she can surprise them with a little Valentine goodie as well!"
Thanks for the share, Colleen, and enjoy your $75 gift certificate on us!
Earlier this year I attended Ben Sasso’s Heck Yeah Photo Camp located in Joshua Tree, CA. I had never been to Southern California, much less explored it’s incredible coast. For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to look down the coastline of Big Sur or see the Sequoias. After some super last minute travel planning, I found myself with 3 photographer partners for an amazing adventure. We decided we would start at sunrise in Joshua Tree, head south to Salvation Mountain and the Imperial Sand Dunes and then begin our trip north where we would end a week later in San Francisco.
There were so many beautiful maternity portraits I wanted to take during my pregnancy that I soon felt overwhelmed trying to decide on just a few for one photography session, so instead made an entirePinterest board ofMaternity Shoot Inspiration that I could tackle one at a time on a weekly basis. So my suggestion is to create an inspiration mood board as your first step to a self portrait, even if it's just a one-time shoot.
