Clever products that shine with creativity help show clients that your profession is rooted in art. Kara of Kara Petta Photography shares, "My goal was to introduce a unique and beautiful product that could fit into a variety of budgets. I love the Accordion Mini Albums: Visual Poetry because it can fit into any budget and comes in a set of 3 (one to keep and two to give) that's an easy way to justify the upgrade for most! I also offer it sometimes as a complimentary addition for packages to wow clients and boost my referrals. Then I had the idea to use the wedding template for my fine art box that I offer with all my wedding packages. It ties the products together and gives a beautiful upscale design to my box. I've had brides book a wedding with me just because they fell in love with this box! I love them because they're so versatile! I've used them for mini albums, coffee table books, 8x8 or 10x10 albums, fine art boxes and cards. The elements can be used on a variety of products to tie everything together for a beautiful designed look. It really helps to set me apart and showcase my clients images. This is a product that has a wide range of uses and I love that there's a style for any type of photography you offer. It's worth every penny! Clients love that these albums are such an upscale, portable way to display and share their portraits. In the day of digital albums and online viewing, to have something beautiful and tangible to show to friends and family really wows my clients. Plus they make great gifts that work with any type of photography you sell." Thanks for sharing, Kara!

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.
