products that multitask for great client gifts and art!

We love this creative share from Brandi Natividad of Bell Creation Studio. Brandi writes, "I took the birth announcement from the You're My Type cards and added all my daughter's birth information. I simply printed an 8x10 image on my home printer. I bought the frame at Kirkland and painted it white then added a custom mat made from Hobby Lobby to match my colors. It's such a cute way to display my daughter's birth information as a piece of decorative art in her nursery." Thanks so much for sharing, Brandi. We know a lot of clients would love something like this from their photographers too. Why not make it an offering or a gift with purchase? Great idea!

Here’s a saying we find really annoying: “do what you love, and the money will follow. Umm, nope. If we asked every photographer out there if they are working hard, they would say yes. But if we asked every photographer out there if they are raking in the big bucks, many would say no.
