a great way to say "thank you" to your clients

Today's share comes to us from Melanie of Melanie Ashcraft Photography. She writes, "I wanted to make something as a thank you for my client, and wanted to include some of her favorite photos of her daughter from the session. I absolutely love the Finishing Touch Borders, and the Fleur Book, so I knew I had to think of something to do with those products. My client said she has a buffet that she has a lot of pictures on. So I figured I would do something that she could easily display, either in a frame or easel, and not feel she's taking up tons of room. I used a page from the Fleur Book with four image spaces and then added flourishes from one of the Finishing Touch Borders to create a frame around them. I then added a color overlay and pulled the color from her dress for the frame color. I also added a stroke around the photos using the same color, to help the flourish frames and the shape of the image places stand out. I had it mounted on 2mm styrene to add that additional durability, and give it that added classy feel. I love this product because I was able to use some fabulous items from different products to create a sweet, and simple way of saying thank you, without leaving the client wondering what to do with it. It's small enough to display on an easel, but it's easy to frame as well. I'm excited to be able to give this to my client as thank you gifts are never expected, but they always love." Thanks for the share, Melanie! Enjoy your $75 gift certificate in the shop~

Let's face it, we've all gotten that email that asks us if we offer holiday/off-season/Sunday/dog's birthday discounts. As a girl who loves shopping clearance racks, I get it, I love me a good sale... but always being asked to discount your prices can be disheartening and devaluing as a creative. We already struggle with putting a price on our art, how the heck are we going to make any money if we don't charge profitable prices.

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!
