Today we have a lovely share from Kelli of PhotoBella Photography. She writes, "I used components from the various Complete Baby Plan products and created a gift card. I absolutely love the simple, classic design of the Complete Baby Plan. It fits perfectly with my branding and style in general. I love how each component is in it's own layer, and usually as a vector (easily-scalable). It is so simple for me to copy one design element that I like (for example- the leaf) and incorporate it into everything. This makes it so simple for me to take the beautiful pieces of the Baby Plan design and carry them out throughout my materials for a unified look and feel.
I had never gotten around to actually creating gift cards. Something about the Baby Plan design made me want to spruce up my marketing materials and complete the neglected items, like the gift card. With the holidays around the corner, I think this is a perfect time to introduce these to my clients."Thanks for sharing, Kelli, and enjoy your $75 gift certificate in the shop!
From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.
I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years. Although I majored in art and studied photography in college, my career started in marketing and advertising, from the client service end. Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
