{new products 2009}

modern matting: a modern and unique way to display your smaller prints. The modern matting line allows even smaller prints such as 5x7's to create a huge impact. Each print is printed directly on white space, essentially creating a matted print that doesnt even need to hide behind glass and is immediatly ready for display because it has been specially coated during its printing process. All prints printed from the modern matting line are printed on beautifully elegant linen textured paper Please inquire about pricing and size options.
streamline mini album: these little beauties come in sets of three and are simply stunning! Each image is printed edge to edge within the 3x3 accordian album for a truly seamless look. Each album includes 9 of your favorites images cropped to size and is anchored on each end with high quality material (leather is shown in image below but linen cotton is also available). Please inquire about prices and color options.

Giving is awesome semi announcement....

Sorry for the delay in this announcement, with a house full of sickies and the rush of the holidays i allowed myself not to feel guilty about spending extra time with my family...

After spending so much time reading and rereading the 4 entries i received i finally made my decision...the family has been notified and i will hopefully get to post bits of their story for yall all to read.

BUT (there's always a but, lol) i have also decided that each of the other families will also recieve a a smaller gift of my time and prints as well.

I will say I have been touched by these nominations and have come to discover that there are so many in our community who deserve the gift of these memories.

FYI if you missed your chance to nominate someone just wait, i plan to run another variation of this giveaway later in the year.

{giving is awesome}

{a smile from miss camdyn belle for your viewing pleasure}


It has been a year full of tragedy for many of us here in Houston, with everything from Hurricane Ike and so many families losing their homes but also the financial crisis that has negativly impacted everyone in some way.

Do you know someone who’s experienced a tragedy, is struggling to stay afloat, is raising kids while holding down more than one job, or is volunteering selflessly despite extenuating personal circumstances? You know someone who can’t afford custom photography, but who would cherish it this holiday season. You know someone who deserves a year-round reminder of their family’s spirit, love, and beauty.

You know someone. I guarantee it.

I want to know who they are, and I want to give them the chance to experience complimentary custom photography. A portrait session and custom package of $400. It’s in your power to give them the artwork they deserve this holiday season.

Oh, and the best part? The person who nominates the winner receives a portrait session too, along with $100 worth of product credit. What better reason to show some love could there possibly be, people?

The rules:
* You cannot nominate yourself, and the person nominated must sincerely be incapable of purchasing my services. (Being unable to make mortgage payments for a two-million-dollar-vacation-home in Paris does not qualify as sincere financial need.)
* The nominee must reside in the spring/cypress/tomball/the woodlands area. Tell me who you know, what they’re experiencing, and why they deserve my artwork. Please include a way to contact both your nominee and yourself as well.
* Giveaway pkg will include:
(1) mounted 11x14
(3) 8x10
(9) 5x7
(2) sets of wallets
(1) 10 page jlee leather mini album (filled with prints)
session fee waived
{approx value $400}
* You must e-mail me the full story - my email address is skc@ the website address. (Sorry - trying to avoid spammers.)
The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve — get nominating! I can’t wait to read all of your entries!
**** the session will be coordinated based on photographers schedule coordinating with the chosen families schedule, and will be held after jan 1, 2009
I’m not the only one doing this right now — Giving is Awesome is coordinating a lot of us. Maybe someone in your area if you’re not in Houston? Or maybe you’re a photographer and you want to participate too?
Open your heart to someone this holiday season — and thanks for giving me the opportunity to open mine.

with love
