I was looking through the design options last night and I will probably be ordering from the flat stationary holiday photo cards. There are tons of really pretty designs to choose from. My absolute favorite are the French Vintage Christmas cards:
And I’m also a fan of the Pretty Pattern Indigo Christmas card:
Thank you Auden for being such an adorable and willing model for my sample Christmas cards!
If you have your own blog, make sure you hurry up and sign up before it gets too close to Christmas! Bloggers can get 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly.
I will be sure to share mine with you guys when they come!
*edited to add [since i had a comment from comcast] that the issue was totally with mcafee. dell customer service wouldn't own up to the fact that it was a computer/software issue and told us that we had to working with comcast to fix it since they are our internet service provider even though the internet was still working on our xbox and i had already told them that. i'm not hating on comcast, but a discount would be nice if you guys do come by this page again ;)
the photo above was from when i was doing a shoot on saturday with an adorable couple named mike & eva. you can see some of the photos here.
New Year's Eve Wedding Ideas
If you are looking to have a huge celebration at your wedding reception, you may want to consider choosing December 31, New Years Eve, as your wedding date. Set the time for your wedding ceremony late enough and your guests will be able to have a double party combining their New Years celebration and your wedding reception into one amazing night.
I'm 23 years old.
Where are you originally from?
Planet Earth, but I like to travel. :)
Did something or someone in particular spark your interest in photography? How did you get started?
There was nothing in particular. I know it sounds pretty uninteresting, but it's true. I started by playing around doing fashion photoshoots of a friend of mine, basically. We both liked it so, we would play dress up and I would take pictures of her and she would take pictures of me. It was really fun, actually. Girls will be girls! ahaha And it just went on from there, really.
Who are some photographers that you like that inspire you?
Well, there are many and they are constantly changing depending on my current interests. Right now, I think: Aëla Labbé, Vins Baratta, Alison Scarpulla, Violaidi, Matt Hill, Anna Inghardt, Hui+, Ann H. - ugh, many many many....
Do you have/are you working on a degree in photography or are you self taught?
I'm self taught.
Is photography your career? If not do you plan on turning it into your career some day?
It isn't my career but, of course, I would love to work in photography, just not shooting weddings or door knobs... ahaha. Anything that would allow me being creative and still being me would be wonderful, though.
What is your favorite thing to photograph?
People - honest and quirky people... maybe some dishonest ones too. :)
Where do you find and how do you instruct your models?
My models are usually friends. Since I'm an actress, most of them are actresses as well. How do I instruct them... well, most of the times I really strive for them to give me something real. I ask them to focus on an emotion or to imagine a certain situation, and usually I just tell them to keep moving so that I can photograph moments. I really do love emotive portraits - when you can feel something looking at it, when you can relate to the mood of it, that's what I love. And if I can make it beautiful, feminine and whimsical... I will.
What type of acting do you do?
I'm a theater actress mainly, although I've done some short films aswell.
What inspires you?
Everything inspires me. I can be inspired by a story, a person, a quote, a song, a mood, an emotion, a piece of clothing, a good hair day... anything really. The usual common factor, though, is light. I love light and there is nothing like sunbeams shining through. It's just... magic.
What kind of camera do you use? Do you dabble with different types or stick to one old faithful camera?
I use my analog camera as much as I can - everytime I have the money, that's another way to put it. :) It is a Zenit-11. For everything else I use my Canon 400D... For now, at least, I don't think I'm settling on these two.
Do you have any advice for someone who is aspiring to become a photographer?
Yeah... Have fun!

there is a whole group on flickr dedicated to film swap... appropriately titled FILM SWAP. if you choose to try film swap, i suggest you swap with someone you know in real life or well from the internet. my pairing was random and she was lame. i heard many other people complain that they never heard back from their random pairing through photojojo as well.
