Meet one of my 2012 brides, Elizabeth!  She contacted me asking if I could take a few photos of her for a headshot, as she’s about to begin teaching yoga and needs a portrait of herself for the studio’s website.  We headed out to a field in Bangor, which perfectly complimented the neutral shades she was wearing and her gorgeous green eyes, and talked about what’s currently going on in her life (graduation!) and what’s to come (her wedding!!!)

Ah, how I love to bond with my brides and grooms.

I have never liked CDs.  They’re probably more sturdy than I realize, but there’s a reason why I never store files on a burnt CD– I fear that one scratch will cause me to lose whatever I have stored on that disk.  That’s an awful feeling.  And that’s why I’ve been giving anyone who purchases high resolution files from me a flash drive.  They feel more reliable, and I want my clients to feel like their images are as safe as possible.*

I wanted to invest in new flash drives that reflect my branding, so I researched and finally decided on these!  Every 2012 bride and groom, along with portrait clients who purchase high resolution images, will be receiving one of these bad boys in either red or blue.

Aah, I love those colors!

Can’t wait to begin to give these cute little drives out!

*If you ever purchase high resolution files from me I strongly urge you to back up your files on your computer and on another flash drive/CD/the cloud.  You never know what could happen, and I want to make sure your images are as safe as possible!
