Finally, the albums I have been designing for the last few months are starting to roll in. I got three of them just yesterday. They are sooooooo gorgeous! I love them. I love this manufacturer. They do such nice work. Of course, I am pretty proud of the layout and color, too! I work hard to make these books look this good. If you want to see some of the typical layouts I create go to my site to see a few. Most of our packages include both the big book and two smaller clone (parent) books. The little ones are the same pages, just smaller. Here is a peek at one of the sets of books that just came.

Wedding Albums and parent books

Wedding Albums and parent books

My favorite delivery guy just delivered the album I designed for newborn, Nate and his parents. A couple of months ago, I photographed Nate’s mommy in her last weeks of pregnancy. Then I photographed newborn Nate in his first couple of weeks of life. After Nate’s parents picked out their favorite photos from both sessions I designed this wonderful album for them. I love the way it turned out. They wanted a warm sepia tone throughout, and it goes so well with the ostrich cover they chose. I took lots of close ups of the book so you can see the quality of craftsmanship of the Kingston Albums. I use Kingston for many of the wedding albums I design, as well. They ROCK!

Whew! Another busy week blew by already! Portrait sessions, newborn sessions, weddings and of course, album designing. I am not complaining though, being busy is a very good thing! I have lots of sessions to catch up on, but I wanted to share a sneak peak at one of the adorable babies I photographed this week. Such a cutie! She kind of reminds me of my oldest at the same age. I met and photographed this little girl and her family at her home in Silverdale. I love photographing all those tiny baby parts. The best time to photograph newborns is in the first two weeks, when they are really tiny. However, at a month old, G was still pretty small and cute as a little lamb. How about that sweet round face!

It seems fitting this season to celebrate birth and the beginning of Spring and new life. Congratulations to this wonderful couple and the little one they expect soon.032308_06.jpg032308_01.jpg032308_04.jpg
