Christmas Photo Shoot

Hello, I know I said I probably wouldn't get much chance to blog here for a while, but I simply had to share these images with you and tell you all about them as I'm so delighted with them I could burst with joy! :)...

...Now that my portfolio of new greeting cards and gift wrap designs is steadily starting to grow, I knew I needed to find a good photographer, ideally local to me - who could work with me to deliver perfectly styled images and hopefully help take my designs to the next level.

Also, I'd  reached that point most small business owners get to when you realise you just can't build a successful future without adopting a strong support team around you, as it's simply impossible to do absolutely everything yourself and still do it well!...

...As luck would have it, by asking around I discovered the most amazing pair of photographers in the neighbouring village.  Kate and Alex photography usually specialise in gorgeous wedding and child portrait photography, but there was something about the way they styled their images that caught my imagination.  These ladies have a keen eye for something a little bit different, but always exceptionally beautiful!....

...The only snag I could see was that they freely admitted they had never done product photography before.  I on the other hand, have lots of experience assisting and managing product photography shoots from my years spent in ad agencies so was at the ready to share advice and tips...Not that they really needed much of that as they were completely up for the challenge so I had every faith that they would come up with the goods...and oh boy, did they deliver! :)  

You can read on their blog here all about that challenge and how it went for them: 

..This post is just really to say a big thank you to Kate and Alex - I have lots more new products to launch in the new year, so this is just the start of us working together :)

I also want to thank Marna at Little A Designs for all the gorgeous ribbons you see adorning all my parcels - I love pretty ribbons on parcels - after all, it's the finishing touches that make all the difference!

Have a great week
