Happy weekend! Just wanted to share a quick post to show you the final pieces I finished up for my friend a few weeks back. She’ll be framing these prints as a Christmas gift for her Father and I can’t wait to hear what he thinks!
If you had it in your mind to contact me to do some prints for Christmas gifts contact me soon! It’s hard to believe it but Christmas is only 6 weeks away.
It’s been such a solid week of editing, working on new project ideas, finishing up unpacking, starting a new job, and lots of other craziness that I almost forgot to blog something special! At the beginning of the summer I posted about sharon’s dress. When Sharon got married last year, she wore the very same dress her mother wore in 1968. Sharon had it updated and added a few finishing touches but it still had the same elegance and delicate beauty as when her Mom wore it.
For the project, Sharon and I met for a brief photoshoot. We took a few pictures of her in the dress, I took a few detail shots of the dress, and then I went to work, scanning in the photograph of her parents from their wedding day, editing the pictures from our shoot, and scanning and touching up a journal entry Sharon received from her mother that talked about the dress. I combined all of these elements into one large piece that Sharon had printed and will hang in her home and is also giving as a gift to her mother.
If you have any ideas for some digital collage work, please contact me. All of the pieces I do are a combined effort with you to ensure your memories are displayed exactly as you want them. I’m willing to do an entire book (like the one I did for my Grandparents which I’ll be sharing with you in another post), a collection of pieces, or just one piece you can share like I did for Sharon. Old letters, documents, photographs, or even raw materials (think a lace handkerchief of your great great grandmothers) can be combined to create these unique pieces.
