Happy Valentine's Day!
In honor of Valentines Day, I want to share my favorite love quote that I've memorized from college days; although, I can't recall who wrote it, it made a lasting impression on me. It expresses what we should practice not only on Valentine's Day, but every day in our journey of life: The lover does not give in order to receive. Giving is in itself an exquisite joy. But he that gives can not help but bring something to life in that other person, and this which is brought to life reflects back upon him.
What a great way to show off your unique style with this contemporary acrylic cover album. Match it with a premium leather color option to decorate the spine and showcase it like any other decorative addition to your home. The textured acrylic cover acts as a piece of art, showcasing an impressive photo of your choice. As you turn the pages, you notice the sturdy construction as the pages are mounted on thick composite board. It’s hard not to fall in love with this album. It just oozes luxury as it presents your wedding day story to be relived every time you put it in your lap and turn the pages. I just had to share how beautifully this sample album turned out. I can’t wait to begin designing these for my clients. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Eirini was baptized in her family church, Assumption Greek Orthodox church, amongst family and friends. It was a posh affair and Eirini made several wardrobe changes for the occasion. She was princess for the day as she was held and kissed by all her admirers. I loved watching her expression as she experienced the day. She was so observant that you felt she understood the meaning of the day. I event caught her yawning and who wouldn’t with all the attention and excitement in the air. It was a beautiful service and Eirini held up well considering all the rituals of the baptism. Yes, she cried but once she was in her God parents arms with Mom & Dad close by, she snapped out of it. Eirin’s Mom, Stacy, did a fabulous job with the reception décor. There were fairy princess’ everywhere and loads of sweets that the kids went crazy for. It was such an opportunity to witness and photograph such a reverent tradition.
Amber and her siblings took advantage of CW Photography Designs, "Fall Portrait Special", to gift to their parents for Christmas. It's difficult finding that perfect gift for someone. Those perfect gifts all too often wind up in a goodwill bag, tossed in the back of a closet or stored in the garage or attic. We're all guilty of this, so why not give a gift that will be cherished and provide a lifetime of smiles and joy. A portrait session is the perfect gift for the holidays. Framed prints decorate and style the home but there are so many other ways to utilize a photo in addition to a framed print. Metal photo ornaments are great for stocking stuffers. Personalized photo coasters and calendars make a great conversation piece for the home or office. A gift certificate can be gifted to that special someone and their furry friend. We all love our pets and they sometimes are overlooked for portrait sessions until it's too late. My point is, support small businesses and in return, you save gas, money, time and your sanity by gifting a portrait session to that someone special and let CW Photography Designs take care of the rest.
I typically schedule portrait sessions during the golden hour but to accomodate a baby's schedule, we decided a morning session would work best for Keith & Alicia and their sweet little boy, Nathan. Towards the end of the session, Nathan was ready to go home. He did very well throughout the shoot but we couldn't get him to smile. With a smile or not, Nathan is such an adorable baby. I loved editing Alicia & Keiths photos because I would zoom into Nathan's baby face and giggle from his cuteness. We did get one huge smile towards the end as Mommy lifted him up high.
