making valentine's day even sweeter with personalized cards

Valentine Card for PhotographersToday's lovely share comes from Colleen Hernandez of Fournineteen Photography.  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.  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!

Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.

This past March, my family and I took a road trip from Marietta, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina. The trip fell during the first few days of spring, and we all dreamed of warmer weather and a nice change of scenery! Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
