High Time for an Update!!!

Time has escaped me once again & I'm extremely overdue for an update!  I'll start with the 2012 Christmas Season--and what an amazing season it was!  God has so richly blessed me with my amazing business partner and friend, Karen Baker of Karen Baker Photography.  She and I have a great thing going with our Christmas Mini Sessions and God has faithfully blessed us year after year through these sessions and our clients.  Here are a few of my favorite Christmas Card designs from the 2012 season...

2012 Christmas Card Designs

November already, really?!  How can that even be?!
Time to start thinking about Christmas cards!!  

I am SO excited about my 2012 featured designs this year!  Each design is completely customizable to meet your preferences--colors, fonts, wording, the number of pictures featured on the card--these can ALL be altered to provide your family with a unique Christmas card.  If none of these are quite what you had in mind, we always have the option to work together to come up with a one of a kind design too!

I am offering my standard 5x5 or 5x7 flat, double sided photo cards as well as the Boutique shaped cards again this year.  There are also some beautiful finishing options to add to your cards such as a linen, pearl or UV coating.  These finishes are the perfect little "extra something" to add to your cards this year.  

So without further ado, here are my

Sugar & Spice and Everything Nice...

I recently had the opportunity on two separate occasions to design birth announcements for two very beautiful baby girls.  As a mama of two little boys myself, I do enjoy the break from cars & superheros every now and then.  It's a fun little change of pace to dive into all things pink and frilly :)  It was a delight to design birth announcements for both Adelaide & Wynnie and I love how both of their announcements turned out!

Recent Invitations

I've had a lot of fun lately designing many different kinds of invitations--from birthdays to barbecues--there's been quite the variety!  It's one of the main perks of my job--not only are no two designs exactly the same, but the types of events I get to design for are all different as well & it never gets boring, I LOVE IT!  Here are a few highlights from the past few months.

Happy Birthday Finn!!!

One of these days I'm going to have an organized order to the way I do my blog posts!  For now, I'll continue doing them when I have a few minutes to sit down & remember, oh yeah!  I haven't put that one on the blog yet! 

A few months ago I had the honor of designing birthday invitations for one of the most stylish, cool little dudes I know, Finn who turned one back in February.  Mr. Finn comes by his dapper style quite honestly from his mama, CoCo, who is a good friend of mine.  CoCo is also a mighty talented lady with a budding photography business.  Check her out at and just remember you heard it here first folks, one day this gal's gonna be famous :)

I was quite pleased with the way Finn's invitations turned out for his "Happy Monster" first birthday party!

Announcing baby Jack!

I felt especially honored & privileged to design this handsome little fella's birth announcements.  Sweet baby Jack is the son of my wonderful friend and business partner, Karen and her husband, Joe.  I cannot get enough of this darling little face, he is so incredibly precious!  LOVE how Jack's announcements turned out--and Karen had them printed with a beautiful pearl finish that was just perfect!

I love big brother Luke's expression too--SO proud of his little brother!

who is officially back from maternity leave now by the way :) 
If you're in need of some gorgeous family photos, I highly recommend Karen, you will not be disappointed! 
 ...and tell her I sent ya ;)

A bit late, but Christmas designs nonetheless :)

Okay, so I started this post in February which was indeed late, but then due to some tech issues, it was delayed even yes, it is now MARCH & I'm just now posting my favorite designs from this past Christmas :P  

I was once again privileged this past year to partner with my dear friend Karen of Karen Baker Photography for Christmas Mini Sessions. The long and the short of it is that I take her beautiful photography work & create custom Christmas cards for our clients. This partnership has been in the works for 3 years now & I pray God's plan is for it to continue for many more to come. I don't have words to describe what a blessing & joy it is to work with Karen & I am so thankful for her, for our friendship & for our partnership. So without further ado, here are some of my favorite designs from this past Christmas...

The first several are traditional 5x7 flat double sided cards
 (I've only included the fronts of the cards for the most part, otherwise this would make a long post even loooooonger!)

I had to include the back of the Baker's card too, 
their card was in my top favorites this year!

Here is a 5x5 card that I did--love this shape card!
Last, but definitely not least,
one of my Boutique card designs--LOVE this!!

I could definitely keep going...I love my job & I am SO blessed! 
Working with these beautiful families is such a joy to me and I just love creating custom Christmas cards for them!!
