Hand-drawn illustrations of gentle forest friends adorn this lovely template, and add a fresh addition to your studio's newborn offerings. Liz of Elizabeth & Jane Photography shares, "I took the cover design of the Woodland Delight Album and modified it to work as a super adorable and wonderfully designed DVD Case and Disc. Just because a client purchases the digital files, doesn't mean I cannot make it look gorgeous so it becomes a display piece to showcase their images. I love how easy it was to convert this to a DVD Case and Disc design while still keeping the option to create matching pieces in case the client orders more. I'm all about continuity! The clients loved the design so much because their nursery was a woodland theme. They were so impressed, in fact, that they came back a few weeks later to order the matching album! I was thrilled!!"
Thanks for sharing, Liz! Enjoy your $75 shopping spree on us~
Dear Ashley and Graham circa 2008,
Your business will not live and die by social media. You're going to be tempted to put more time into Facebook and Instagram than you do into in-person relationships because it will feel like that's what everyone else is doing; it will feel like the only way to keep up. Resist that temptation. Resist the urge to jump on the ever changing hamster wheel of social media. When you get on that hamster wheel it will feel like you're running as fast as you can and getting nowhere. And that's exactly where sinking unscheduled, unintentional time into social media will get you: nowhere.
Next to framed art, albums are a favorite, no-brainer product you should be offering every client. Albums are the one product that truly stands the test of time and will be treasured for generations to come. Not long ago, album design went a bit “photographers-gone-wild” with acrylic, metal, and even fur covers. Remember that panoramic ultra-wide album fad?
Luckily the tide has turned back to favoring a classic, luxury presentation.
Netflix. HBO. & Hulu.
That could be about 70% of my off season. The time a friend introduced me to Game of Thrones was the most epic two months of my life (sorry adulthood). BUT, the keyword in that first sentence is “could be”. My biggest love during off season is stepping out of my living room for a travel adventure.
