Fine Art Friday | Spring has Sprung!

I am not sure if any of you here in Colorado have noticed that Spring is slowly trying to bring back colorful life to our beautiful state. As I drive around - I can't help but spot the whites, pinks and greens dotting the otherwise barren twigs we call trees. These blooms and blossoms do not last long so I thought that they would make a very pretty installment of Fine Art Friday.

You may notice that I got a shot of another harbinger of spring - a flighty little bee! He just happened land on the bloom I was photographing... a sign of great things to come?

Welcome back Spring!!!

Colorado Newborn Photography | Custom Designed Announcements!

I am not a graphic designer. That being said, I love color, fonts, graphics and layouts. I create my own albums for customers and my website has always been designed by me. I love the challenge of balancing great photographs, meaningful text and coordinating colors to make something meaningful.

This is a baby announcement I designed for Baby Evan. I used colors and texture that fit with the images from two sessions that we chose to be on the invitation. The parent's had the idea of saying that they "gained a few pounds over the holidays" so we were able to make the card even more personal. Having a design custom created to fit the mood and style of your images really gives a custom look that no one else will have. These are truly unique!

I am always up for designing announcements, Christmas cards and thank you's - here is a link to more information on my website. Please email or call me if you are interested!

Fine Art Friday | Opening day!

In honor of Baseball's opening day I thought I would get down and dirty with some new spring grass and a couple of classics from our nation's pastime! If you are paying attention - this is actually a softball -  but it is all I have. Plus it is well worn and full of texture - making for great close-ups. The glove is nice and worn too - thanks to my husband. Maybe I will use these in a little boy's room someday...
