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!

Well, hello! I'm a boudoir and wedding photographer from Pennsylvania; I am based in both in Philadelphia and in the mountains of Northeast, PA. I have a love for shooting film, vivid colors, fluffy dogs, salty snacks, binge watching Netflix, sarcasm, and napping. My road to becoming a photographer isn't a very poetic or adventurous story: I was a painter and had always pursued the thought of going to school for fine art. I took an introduction to film photography class in my senior year of high school and just fell in love with the medium. I've pursued my own photography business ever since and am still shooting with film!

One thing we love about living in Portland is the strong emphasis on sustainability and a genuine concern for the environment. The natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest has obviously inspired locals to care and take action, to protect the lushness surrounding them. The name of the game here is conservation and preservation - with multiple trash/recycle/compost bin options in every restaurant and coffee shop, to chicken coops adorning backyards aplenty. We’re so pleased to see this positive trend hit the design and technology spheres, as hard copies become a thing of the past and the Cloud becomes the Internet’s new storage bin.
