P A C K A G I N G // 2015

I get excited when it's time to deliver photo orders to my clients, to create something beautiful just for them.  Being able to present their images in custom made packaging is important to me. I feel as though my new packaging you'll see below represents where my brand is heading and cannot wait for my clients to get their packages in the mail!

Today I'm thrilled to share with you my new packaging. The artist in me had fun creating and putting all the elements together. It's a labor of love and I'm happy to continue to build my brand. Hope this inspires someone! 
Thank you for stopping by!

P A S S I O N // Typography Print

"There is no passion to be found in settling for a live that is less than the one you are capable of living." - Nelson Mandela

This is by far one of my favorite quotes, I've used it on other designs but I thought I should create a chalkboard handlettering design! I'll be selling this shortly on Etsy, so check back soon. In the meantime though mosey on over to my Etsy Shop and take a gander at what I have for sale at the moment:

Until next time!

A couple weeks ago a little blinking notification went off as I logged into my Etsy shop. Meaning I had just sold my first custom piece through my Etsy shop!! I was pretty stoked when I had an email form a sweet lady from Washington asking if I would design a large typography print showcasing her and her husband's vows!

I love being a part of creating a lasting art piece, especially when it is something as precious and important as a couple's wedding vows to one another.  I'm pretty excited for this couple to get their piece, and find the perfect wall in their house to display this wrapped canvas!

Here are a couple shots of my recent design project! If you like what you see and would like to buy a custom vow design, or any other custom typography design check out my ETSY shop: ANorthwestNative and shoot me an email with what you're thinking! I'd love to design for you!

A Walk On The Timeline Ackerman Academy | Fundraiser Concert 2015

Whenever what I do for a living and passions in my life align it makes me smile, overcome with happiness. On March 12th, I had the privilege of seeing and photographing the students (who I've been working with the past few years) perform at their Fundraiser Concert - A Walk On The Timeline at The Place to be Cafe in Canby. 
The night was amazing, the cafe fuller than I've ever seen it. The event was charged with electricity and the feeling of community was undeniable. There were phenomenal performances from the students who are a part of the Ackerman Academy music program and the amazing instructor, Grammy nominated singer/songwriter, Ellen Whyte.  

Ellen did an outstanding job working with, encouraging, and challenging the students to go beyond what they imagined they could do.  I loved seeing the students grow, develop their skills, and become more confident in themselves.  They definitely put on one AMAZING show and couldn't be more proud of the Ackerman students! 

I am excited for the students at Ackerman, and the opportunities they will have in the future because of the awesome people who have worked with them, who came to this event and gave!

See all the photos from the night here!

Check out some of the photos from this event!
