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.Â For my pre-teen niece and nephew, I decided a nice gift might be their own set of personalized thank you notes.Â 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.Â 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.Â 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~
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.
