Branching Out

i think i have survivor's guilt or something. it's like i survived the workforce and now i feel guilty that i get to stay home with mack while B is slaving away (not that mack doesn't keep me working!). i know i'm still contributing, but it's different than contributing financially, like my contribution isn't easily seen or measured.

maybe it's the guilt, or maybe it's that i'm overly-ambitious, but i've decided to expand my photography business to include a bit of my graphic design background. i haven't decided if i'm going to open an etsy shop or not, but i'd like to start designing birth announcements, cards, wedding invitations, etc.

here's a birth announcement that i did for someone close to me:
here's the one i did for mack:
yes, mack's initials are m.m.m. :)

i made this thank you card to coordinate with the announcement:

here's a christmas card i did for my sister:
i took their pics, too. such a photogenic family!
i love doing this kind of stuff, so why not integrate it into my business? i'm not sure how much to charge for this kind of stuff, as i'm still in the researching phase of it, but i'm hoping to get going soon. if you have any thoughts or suggestions, i'm all ears! and, of course, if you're interested in having something designed by yours truly, hit me up! :)

Beautiful designs - i wish I was so talented!
I would totally buy your designs - in fact, I have been sending out Costco photo greeting cards ($33 for 125 cards with envelopes!) to friends and family every month. They don't have many good stock designs. If you had a few generic stock designs that could fit the costco greeting card size, i would totally be interested.
