Many people wonder what in the world I do when I am not out taking pictures of people… like there must be nothing else to my job. :-) I usually politely smile and say “only about 10% of my job is actually clicking a shutter button.” The off-season (ie November through March) is usually FILLED with album design work. While an increasing number of my clients are purchasing classic matted albums or La-Vie Albums (which are designed by La-Vie), I still have many clients that want that flush mount style album, and I still LOVE to design them! I thought I would share a few layouts that I have worked on in the last few months. Happy viewing, friends!
I did this one today. I love that Michelle & Dan allowed me to choose the images for their initial design. Of course, they will get to swap things out, but designs go so much smoother for me when I get to choose the images first… simply because I often have visions of designs when I cull the images. This layout is a prime example. Not many brides would choose 5 portraits of just her for her album, but I love the feel of this spread! (the frills are from their invites).
Cat & Joe are another example of a bride & groom letting me choose the initial images to use… and another example of using designs from the wedding stationery (easy to do when you have clients that are designers!).
i love this panoramic page for Debbie & Alex. They were married in the fall of 2008. Usually, we do all of our designs pretty quick after the wedding, but just a month ago, I was working on a 2006 album, a 2007 album, three 2008 albums and then five 2009 albums! It is never too late for those couples that didn’t have albums in their packages!
This album is almost ready to ship to Kaleen & Jack…
Last, but DEFINITELY not least… Baby’s First Year with Sophie. I love every single spread from this album (so click on that link!), and I can’t wait to get it back from Cypress Albums in about a month or so!
