Timeless: Art Focused Storytelling....

September 20, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I had the privilege of speaking at the King's House Antiques Tips of the Trade today, and Susan Kidd was such a gracious hostess.  It is such a lovely venue at Pepper Place.  She invited me to talk about the new niche in my photography business -- Art{Full} Creations. It's an honor to share what I do because I love it so much.  

Over two years ago, I began to take notice of how fast-paced our world has become – where everything is in the “cloud” and technology is constantly changing before our eyes… I looked at how we communicate, how we relate to one another. Everything is at our fingertips... we text, take pictures and videos post them on FB, Instagram or Pinterest  in seconds and we can also delete them in a Nano second.  

What I observed was a need to slow down, to enjoy, to savor, to relish, to treasure, to celebrate… to inspire.  I loved what I did but I had discovered that I wanted to do something more… something different.  I wanted to be purposeful… to do something intentional, to do something with significance and real meaning.

As a professional and a mother, I am sensitive to the details that matter in life, and I am passionate about photographing people and their relationships, the beautiful places and things that make up their lives. 

So in 2011, I re-niched my photography business by adding another venue – Art{Full} Creations… where I photograph, design & layout beautiful, custom coffee table books. These exquisite books are truly works of art.  The elements that have always been important to me like capturing the essence, personality and relationship of my subjects, composition, lighting, colors, textures and patterns have naturally pointed to and evolved into Art-Focused Storytelling.

These books are a reflection or extension of who you are and what’s important to you… they tell your story. By coming alongside you, I am able to document your life together in an artful and creative manner by capturing different vignettes of your family (multi-generational photos), pets, beautiful home, garden or lake, beach or mountain homes.  Each book is custom done – so it’s what you want; it’s your story. The possibilities are endless!

Like I mentioned earlier, my goal is to be intentional about these books… it's important to me that they depict your heart, your soul… that they capture what you treasure, what is meaningful to you, what has purpose, what is worth celebrating, what really matters…. 

And the good news is… they are tactile… you can touch them, curl up in the bed with them or have them on your coffee table…they are to be enjoyed and shared with those whom you love and for generations to come.   These books are timeless and they continually give and bless….
