Today's share comes from Jessie of J. Passon Portraiture. She writes, "I love it when I can cross two items off of my "to do" list at the same time! This time it was thanks to Design Aglow--yet again. We moved into an old Victorian house just under 9 months ago and with a renovation list miles long I just had to do something to put a little of "us" into the house. Digging into my DA files, I came across the Larger Than Life canvas templates that I purchased a while ago and came up with a great way to satisfy my need for art on the walls (until we can paint!) as well as introduce this product to clients this year.
Taking my favorite images from each of my daughters' 1 year old and 3 year old sessions I chose one layout from Larger Than Life and used it for two different canvases. Knowing that they will eventually share a room later on, I wanted the canvases to be the same size and layout. It was a piece of cake to re size the template to fit my 26x36 gallery wrap canvas desires. Their sessions were photographed at different locations, but they both happened to wear cream dresses at one point so I chose images from that outfit in each of their galleries.
This was such an easy way to create totally unique canvases for each of them, yet keeping a cohesive look for display in the same room later on. For now the canvases are proudly displayed in their rooms and I will soon be showing them off loud and clear to clients! Thank you so much Design Aglow for giving me a way to create gorgeous art for myself and my clients. Every time I look at the canvases emotions inside start stirring up...if that works for me then hopefully I can do the same for my client!"
We love this great share, Jessie! Enjoy your $75 gift certificate in the shop~
My husband and I craved some sun and sand for our honeymoon. We wanted to go on an adventure together, to come back with an awesome experience and not go on a “standard" honeymoon. We were able to settle on Cuba.
The turquoise waters of the Bahamas, the dramatic Rocky Mountains, the vistas of Iceland- endless romantic images pop into our minds when we think of destination weddings. And that is why, almost every wedding photographer at some point wants to give them a go.
So we’re going to tell you how to find them, book them, and prep for them.
The formula is simple.
clients you love + photography you are excited about + doing it your way = happy photographer
We think a shift should be made in photography. A happiness shift. You likely got into photography because you love taking photographs. And then the reality of making a living at it started to creep in, and you became bound to jobs you didn’t really want to do, because you needed the money. We’ve been there, and yep, it stinks.
