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~

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.

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.
