New Album

Christmas came early with the arrival of my new album. I was holding my breath waiting to see if it would be all it promised to be. I was thrilled when it arrived and turned out to be as wonderful as I had hoped.

The printing is fantastic. The album has a hard cover that is fully printed on the spine and front. Each page is printed uninterrupted across the entire width of the this case 24 inches across so you can have really striking layouts with huge images on them--think of it, an 8x10 doesn't even take up the whole page! This is wonderful for those big group and wedding party shots.

It costs the same as my standard album but with some very key improvements. The differences include that it has 50 pages instead of 30 pages and each page is 12x12 instead of 10x10 which means you can get many more photos in each album. Who doesn't want more pictures! That will surely help people having a hard time choosing. It is slimmer because the pages are thinner--not card stock but thick photo pages that are printed on both sides. That will make storage easier. It will fit on a bookshelf like an expensive coffee table book and the spine is printed so you will always be able to find it. Parent albums and companion books can be printed from the same design, taking the time out and lowering the cost to you while giving you a much better book.

I'm so happy to be able to offer this kind of quality, one of a kind, album and hope you will make time to see it in person soon.

2009 has been such a fun year. I was shooting the groom when the bride set this image up's my favourite of the whole wedding. We rode in a stretch hummer to their reception in Littleton and all the guys had cammo ties and vests.

This wedding took place during a hurricane. The entire ceremony was amazing with lots of wind until the "I do's" and then complete calm. Lovely couple and a lovely day. That was my first reception at the Wildflower and I must say they do a great job. You can find a link to the Wildflower on Darling Hill in Lyndonville on my wedding links page.

I had some rainy weddings but my lights really saved the day on those. This wedding was at Jay and we were looking forward to those spectacular views from the top of the mountain. Rain moved all our plans inside the ski lodge but these people would not let the rain dampen their spirits and the images came out great!

Shopping cart coming

Hi all,

I've been working on my website and re-doing and tweaking here and there. We have a programmer who is writing a module to allow print purchasing on line from the galleries. There will be cards and mugs and such things there as well so stay tuned.

I'm excited to have my own e-commerce solution. For one thing it lowers the price you have to pay for your prints...I was paying 15% on credit card transactions...which means you were paying it too. I've already lowered the prices on my rate's page.

Paypal on the other hand, only charges 3% and gives you the most secure way to pay on the internet. I've had transaction disputes and had my entire payment refunded to me by paypal. You don't have to have a paypal account either--they will process your credit card.

New Album on the way

I've been looking for an album that offers quality and affordability for my clients. My custom leather album is a little pricey for many and lesser books just don't cut it in the print department. Dime store albums destroy your pictures over time and those Kodak press books are printed on horrible paper with a printer...not photo process. I found a new book printed on Fujifilm Crystal Archive paper (photo-process) that has a hard bound printed cover. It looks like the answer to my prayers! Ive ordered one today and expect to see it in about a week. I'm crossing all my fingers and toes and hope it's as good as the hype! You can expect it to go right onto my offerings if it does and will save my clients about $100 and give them the quality I demand.
