Give the gift that will last a lifetime...

So forgive me, I am going to get a little long-winded because I have a couple things I want to post about. The first is a new item I am offering. I just recently had a client purchase a sitting fee for her friend who is having a baby and it got me thinking...I really wish I had a gift card I could give her to present to her friend. SO....here it is. The idea behind the gift card is to give the gift of "Heart Prints". I don't look at what you receive from my sessions as just ordinary prints...there is heart and soul put into each and every image created for you and so that is where the name came from. You have also heard the saying leave your hand print on life...well I want you to "leave your heart print on life" with a collection of pieces from your session that will be enjoyed forever!!

So this is what you will receive if you purchase a gift card. It is 2 sided and about a business card size. The reason I chose this size, is for the presentation of it. It comes in a beautiful chocolate & aqua gift box with coordinating ribbon. If you have purchased any of my jewelry, it is the same packaging :) Special thanks to baby Blake who is the little guy you see on the front of the cards :)

The second thing I wanted to post about...is last night I had the privilege of doing my very first in home ordering session. I really enjoyed this because it was a chance for the client and myself, as the artist, to choose locations in their home where prints would be best suited. It also was helpful for them to know which sizes would look best in the locations where they were putting them in their home. I also was able to help with wall layouts (groupings) which is something I can not as easily do over the phone. This is something I hope to do more of in the future, or if you are interested in this for your session now please let me know so we can set up an in home consultation. I can bring a variety of print sizes and specialty items such as the gallery mounts to help you choose the art that is best suited for your home.

Thanks to the "M" family for having me in your home to help you choose your art pieces :)

Until next time....

It's so pretty! I'd love to receive that as a gift. It's way better than a pack of onesies or a cute outfit that ends up in a box in the basement. Your art will be treasured forever!
