Have You Seen What's New at Minted.com?

Friday, November 29, 2013

Like many of you, every year I like to send holiday photo cards to family and friends. As a photographer, I come across thousands of designs each year.  I am always on the search for something unique and beautiful that will compliment the photographs I work so hard to create. There is certainly no shortage of sites that offer holiday photo cards, and I have tried many in the past, but have been somewhat disappointed in the selection and quality that some sites offer.

Well, I recently discovered minted.com and was thrilled by the selection of gorgeous holiday photo cards they offer!  They have a wide selection of designs and many that are perfect to showcasing a beautiful family photo with just the perfect touch of holiday cheer.



I like cards that offer a simple, pleasing design that won't distract from the photos I have painstakingly chosen. Just getting 4 kids to cooperate for a portrait is a chore in itself ;)  After all that hard work and preparation, I want to chose the perfect card to compliment our family photo, and minted.com offers plenty of beautiful options! Here are a few more of my favorites:





Not only was I impressed by the design choices (they even hold design contests and you can submit your own!) but the paper quality is exceptional as well. Definitely a must for me. I'm not a fan of flimsy cards that feel cheaply made. Check out the quality difference from minted:


I love that the site is easy to navigate too. And they offer much than holiday cards; they have a wide array of products from wedding invitations, to stationary, paper products, business cards and more. If you haven't seen minted.com recently, you should check them out! Once I finally decide on which of their gorgeous designs is my favorite, I will be ordering my holiday cards from minted.com

If you visit them today, be sure to take advantage of their awesome Black Friday sale!!

I was provided with a gift card to minted.com in order to facilitate this review. All opinions here are my own, based on my experience with the site.

Friday Photo Journal - Week 47

Happy Black Friday everyone! Have you filled your carts with amazing loot? I still haven't bought a thing :( But we had a fantastic Thanksgiving with family. I hope you did too! Today, rather than shopping, I'll be working. I have 3 sessions this weekend and a boat load of editing to do. I did some quick editing of yesterdays pics.
Here a some of my favorite family moments snapped from our Thanksgiving gathering:

P52 - Falling Behind

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

Hello friends, Once again I am struggling to keep up with all of my projects. I know the year is quickly coming to a close and I'd hate to give up on my P52 now. I have taken photos of my kiddos, but they get left on the hard drive while I work on edits for my business. Today I thought I'd share a few quick pics I shot while waiting for some clients last weekend. We shot at a park in Virginia Beach and the leaves were just gorgeous. I was wishing my own family had tagged along because we are soooo behind on getting Christmas cards photos. Anyway, these were quick edits so they will have to fit the bill for P52 this week. 






 I hope you have all had a great week and I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!!
What did you do last week?

Another week down and Thanksgiving is nearly here! I'm excited and anxious...because I am so NOT ready for Christmas. I have so much to do! But, I am really looking forward to some family time! Only three more sessions, and a ton of editing to go before I can unwind a bit on turkey day! :)

Here's a peek at last week:

P52 - Week 46

I'm late again for P52, but I'm up to my eyeballs in work.  Last weekend was a whirlwind of sessions, including my holiday mini sessions on Saturday. Minis are fun, but they are a lot of work! Next year, I may enlist some help. I came home Saturday evening, exhausted, and didn't think to check for ticks afterward. Then found one attached behind my knee on Sunday. Ewww! Fortunately, I don't think it was there long enough to inflict any real damage, but gross! I hate those little blood suckers. :-/

Here's a peek at my weekend:


I still have lots and lots of editing to do!

Hi friends! I have a busy weekend ahead with family sessions, mini sessions, a wedding consult and a senior session. I'm not sure I'll get much sleep! Next week will be the big cram to get all that editing done and I also have a wedding to work on, and a wedding album design. I haven't even begun to think  about Christmas shopping! Have you?

Here's a peek at last week's shenanigans:

Just sharing a few photos from a recent session with this lovely gal and her pup. She purchased portraits for her husband who has been deployed a loooooong time. I'm betting he'll love these!
