meet the fullmers

i photographed my friend and fellow photographer, Melisa Fullmer & her cute little fam when they were visiting Utah. We met in Dallas while my husband was in school, and she actually bought my first DSLR and put it to good use - I think she's very talented!

jose villa workshop

i am a HUGE, HUGE Jose Villa fan, and i got a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend his amazing workshop in California last week. Suffice it to say, he is a creative GENIUS - his talent will blow you away. And he is such a kind person - I think he has no idea what a SUPERSTAR he is!

so i shot my first roll of film ever, and here they are! these are straight out of the camera, no photoshop at all (keep in mind that these are scans):

I'll share more about my California adventure later, but right now I have to get crack-a-lackin!

product sample pics

This post is for my clients that have asked to see Storyboards, Albums, Canvases and Christmas cards. I hope this gives you a good idea, but please believe me when I tell you that they look so much better in real life (pictures of pictures don't do them justice!) And remember to click on them to see much better detail.

So here goes:
This is a 16by20 gallery wrap canvas. The thick edge wraps all the way around, and it's ready to hang. [I wish the picture did it justice!]:

This is a collection:

this is the desk calendar & CD slideshows. The calendar comes with 12, 5by7 pictures to insert into the stand for each month and is great for dad's office or grandparents.
This is the small Leather Session Album filled with 24, 4by6's (i love these!):

Here is an example of a 2-sided, press-printed Christmas card. It comes with your custom message & names on the back, envelopes & matching return-address labels. There are many design styles to choose from as well.

Here are some more storyboards. Storyboards come with 2-5 images. This one has no writing:

this one has her name written in colors that coordinate with her nursery colors:

i put the tape dispenser next to it to give you an idea of how big a 10by20 is. you can also see that you could lean these on a photo ledge as-is or frame it.

Here is the large session album (my personal favorite product). It is a handmade leather album with silk-lined keepsake box, filled with 40, 5by7 images of your choosing.

I hope that helps!
