holiday gift idea: personalized note cards

Today's fan share comes to us from Katharine of Katharine Elizabeth Photography. She writes, "Now that the holiday season is in full swing, I needed to start finding gifts for my own family members.  For my pre-teen niece and nephew, I decided a nice gift might be their own set of personalized thank you notes.  For my niece, I used the All Buttoned Up letters to create a simple 4x5.5 card with “Thank You” on the front and her name and ample writing space on the back.  For my nephew (who LOVES baseball), I used the Alphabet Frames and a photo I took at our Minnesota Twins baseball stadium and I added his name on the back corner of the card.  I love the way they turned out and I hope the kids feel grown-up having their own stationary for thanking school friends, family members, teachers, or anyone else important in their lives."

Thanks for sharing, Katharine, and enjoy your $75 gift certificate~

About 6 months ago, we realized, largely through conversations with fellow wedding photographers, that our in-person sales (IPS) game was weak. Well, let’s be fair: it was non-existent. We were basically selling some products online, occasionally. Our “viewing and ordering sessions” were not generating good sales numbers.

I fell in love with documenting the stories of couples, when I realized I never wanted anyone else to feel the way my husband and I do about our own wedding images. We describe them as "really nice pictures of other people.” There’s nothing about them that feels authentic.

That’s when my work became more than a pretty picture.
