Sometimes with running a photography business, time slips by and you find yourself in a bind for your own photo gifts to family members. Jessie of J.Passon Artistic Portraiture shares how she used the Accordion Album Collection: Visual Poetry to create her own unique Mothers' Day gifts,Â "Running a business and being a mom of two little girls and a baby, time is precious. As yet another holiday quickly approached, I was trying to think of what quick yet thoughtful gift to send to their grandmothers for Mother's Day. Taking a cue from my clients who have given these as gifts in the past, I decided to do a mini accordion along with a mounted 5x7 print of my three daughters together. Of course the first place I went was my Design Aglow files and right to my Visual Poetry template set. I love how simple yet elegant the designs are and they are so easy to customize! I have one client who has ordered mini accordions from each session to give as gifts and I think it is such a great idea.I pride myself in being a photographer that only offers high quality products that I myself would purchase and the mini accordion with a customized template is no exception! Thank you so much for making templates that are great for professional and personal use--myself and my clients thank you!" Thank you so much for sharing Jessie!
