holiday card mini guides to streamline sales sessions

Holiday Card Catalog for PhotographersToday's fan share comes from Marci of Marci Lambert Photography. She writes, "I have used Design Aglow card templates for years with my clients and this year I added the Merry Modern line. I loved the suggestion of creating a proof book, so I made them for each line of cards I sell (Glowlicious, Vintage Greetings, High Impact, Tis the Season, Holiday Headlines and B&W Christmas). Each is 5x7 with a coil binding and contains fronts, middles and back of each card. I added my own photography (I keep a file on my desktop of marketing images and just pull from there) so clients will have a good feel for what works with each card. They can look at the proof books during a consultation, and they'll be available during their ordering session as well. Since I also have printed versions of several of the designs, I can show what the finished product looks like. Design Aglow products are always beautifully designed and easy to use. I can modify them if I want to and can customize colors to perfectly match my photos. Having separate proof books means I can add new lines as I buy them. And having so many templates means I can create a preview for the client to see at their ordering appointment. Most clients end up buying the preview version they see first. My clients love having so many beautiful options for holiday cards." Thanks for the great share, Marci, and enjoy your $75 gift certificate in the shop~

I form a "C" with my left thumb and forefinger and tuck the phone into it so it rests on my hand with my middle finger holding it up along the back. 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!
