Today's share comes from Kira of Kira Derryberry Photography. She writes, "While I'm waiting on my senior album to come back from the printer I decided to go with the "mixed media" theme from the Organic Paradise album and portfolio box templates to create other pieces that were needed. I grabbed pages from the album templates and put together the accordion album. I took some elements from the portfolio box template and added it so I could put in my senior's name and school. I added my own "2012" overlay to the background to commemorate the year. I did the same for the senior rep cards that my girls will hand out to their friends. Finally, I re-sized the portfolio box template to work for this MpixPro Wallet Box which is a great way to package those loose wallets instead of handing them over in sheets to the client.
I LOVE the colors in the Organic Paradise templates. They match perfectly with my style and are completely different from any other senior template out there that I've seen! I'm so happy I was able to stretch the theme even further! I'm using this album template for my studio sample, so I ran it by one of my seniors first to get her opinion. The first thing my client said when I showed her the album template was, "Wow those colors are going to match my session perfectly!" and I couldn't agree more! She hasn't seen her finished products yet but I know she's going to love them! Also, she's thrilled she's going to be featured in the studio sample!"
