As Easter is time to be thankful and rejoice. I am thankful for the dogs that shared their lives with me. Thankful for the willing models they were for this photographer. Some were just naturals and the others learned how to behave when the camera travelled with us and that was most of the time on our walks. Now I have two new ones (15 months old) and they are coming along nicely. The handsome fellow posing for the Easter card is Tux. He came to us as a 3 or 4 year old rescue. He fit into life with the photographer as if he’d been special requested. As with ALL my models and friends, he is truly missed.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. And it is true. I started creating custom greeting cards a while ago. Probably due to need. I needed a card urgently and no stores close. Then it became fun. I could create a card custom-made to the person I was giving it to. For years I have created the Christmas card we send out. People tell me they look forward to a new one each year and keep them. A friend asked for a birthday card with a photo of her husband as a little boy for his mother. A shower card for a daughter from the mother with photos of them together. A card for the mother of the bride. No one thinks of the emotions a mother of the bride goes through the day her daughter gets married. The birthday of an accomplished team roper. These are cards not available in stores. Signs are another that can be custom-made to the person or the occasion. A photo can be used for many things. I hope you enjoy viewing some of the card faces I have created. Now with e-mail instead of having a two fold card with writing inside, the writing is just placed below or beside the photo. Some pretty awesome keepsakes can be created with photos and imagination!
