Are you feeling a little overworked or overscheduled these days?

This is something I would normally reserve for my newsletter subscribers, but it’s just too good to keep quiet. I brainstormed with some talented Portland colleagues to put together a big promo giveaway around the theme of NOURISH.

We know you work hard. Probably too hard.
And that’s why we want to nourish you.

2010 holiday card options

Friday, October 1st, 2010

2010 card design gallery

I’m really excited to offer a couple of extra-fancy holiday card options for our portrait clients this year. (Please note that luxe cards and mini accordion books are not included with the holiday card sign-up promo from our Boston mini-sessions)

Luxe cards are die-cut into delightful shapes, and can even double as a holiday ornament if you choose to add some cute ribbon (the round shape comes pre-punched).

Accordion mini-albums are adorable, and at 3×3″ they are the perfect size to leave out on your desk at work or to give a proud grandma to carry around in her pocketbook.

Our regular, 5×7″ holiday card designs (and prices for everything) can be viewed in the 2010 card design gallery.

casting call | little redhead girl in white dress

Monday, June 28th, 2010

I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for redheads, so when Boston-area artist Julia Denos made my sweet little girl illustration exactly to my specifications, I was thrilled.

I’m putting out a general casting call for another poster girl with curly red hair like this, between the ages of 4 and 9 years old in the San Francisco Bay area. Ideally she would also have access to a little white dress for the photo shoot. Portraits from the session would be used for marketing materials for my business, and my model would get a framed fine art print of her choice from the portrait session.

If you know someone with a daughter who fits the bill, please have them get in contact with me. I can’t wait to find my next poster child! 🙂


oh, you procrastinators!

Monday, November 30th, 2009

We decided to leave the store open until NOON today (EST) in response to some of our favorite people procrastinating until the last minute, and a grandmum overseas who had some trouble placing an order last night.
