Baby Zoey’s Photo Shoot

By now you all probably know my love for anything design or photography related. My college degree is in graphic design and I even took a few years of photography in college. Well, after spending many months getting to know my new camera, I finally decided to take a stab at my first photo shoot. By no means am I even close to a professional, but I didn’t think these images turned out so bad for an amateur. But hey, with a model like this beautiful baby girl, I guess they couldn’t have turned out too bad. ๐Ÿ™‚

Recent Work: Larissa & Doug Save the Date

Hi Everyone! I’ve been trying to play catch up over here so bare with me. ๐Ÿ™‚ I wanted to share a recent job with you so you can see I really am getting some work done over here! Haha. Anyway, this is the design I came up with for Larissa & Doug’s save the date. They’re getting married on the Eastern shore of Maryland, so what’s better than a nautical theme? More work to come soon!
