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~

I’ve been taking photographs ever since I can remember, but once I entered the world of wedding photography I felt the need to really understand my gear. Once you really learn your tools, you can worry less about the technical side and focus on putting your vision into that single frame. I feel the faster I can work, and the more intuitively I know my equipment, the more creative I can be. Wedding photography can make you a pro really fast. I think that artistic pressure is what drove me towards it.

As a lifelong fine artist, I didn’t fall in love with photography until post-college. I was a graphic design major who landed a non-creative position in the industry. Upon searching for a creative outlet, and being the hopeless romantic that I am, I discovered wedding photography and was immediately hooked. I poured everything I had into learning the medium so that I could eventually start my own business, which happened a couple of years later in 2012 — also the year I was married.

I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Portland, but catering to clients across the Pacific Northwest and beyond. As a child, I never imagined that I would pursue photography. I didn’t even own a DSLR until I was 21! However, I remember the day I decided I wanted to learn the ins and outs of photography. I used my college textbook money to buy my first Canon Rebel from Craigslist. I was jumping up and down with joy and scratching my head at the same time because I knew photography would not be simply a hobby.
