Ho! Ho! Ho!


Wow, guys I can't believe it was Halloween when I last posted something. How time flies. I can hardly believe it is already into December. Feels like I have been in the middle of a tornado the last
couple of months!

So, here is a quick post with some recent updates on what I have been busy doing the last couple of months!

As I wrote earlier in the fall I have had th
e opportunity to photograph some great families lately! Recently, many of them have come to me to design their Christmas cards. Typically when someone asks me to do this for them, I come up with 3, 4, or more designs for them and they can choose the one that best suits them.

So! Since I don't want to spoil the surprise for any one of you who may be receiving a card from one of these families, I will not po
st the ones they actually chose. I will post, though some of the other samples I did for them.

This is something I really enjoy doing! As m
uch as I love my work as a photographer, the part of me who studied graphic design in college, really loves getting to create something from scratch, just a plain white screen, and see it turn into something beautiful.

I always love to see how a card shows the personality of each family. You can tell a lot about them by the card they choose. Whether it is classic and simple or modern and trendy.

Some choose color and others like the look of black and white. Personally I love them all. I always have a hard time creating my own because I just can't decide.

Well, it is back to the drawing board for me now! I would love to go on and on, but I am going to have to hold off on my ramblings until...... well, probably January.

I still have a lot of work to do! (If you are one that is waiting on me to finish yours, I promise this post didn't take me away for too long!)

Until then, I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!! Enjoy the time with your family and friends, and never forget the REASON FOR THE SEASON!
