I'm a big fan of local small businesses. What a lot of people don't realize is that the people who start small businesses are literally pouring their hearts and souls into it. The courage and fortitude it takes is astounding. And the amount of work that goes into running one of the best new spots in Darien is immense to say the least.
I announced previously my need to find a new vendor for the heirloom presentation boxes that are included in my top two Collections. After an extensive search, I'm so excited to show you the new product. They are hand-crafted by Michael Chinn in San Fransisco California (you can see more of his work on his website: http://michaelchinn.com/) and he's been making them since 1999 after training under a master bookbinder from England!
I love the clean lines and the simple design.. which fits so well with the style of photography my clients hire me to do. Most of all, it's the best way to keep your precious photographs safe and guarantee their longevity while still being able to enjoy them.
There are many reasons why parents do milestone sessions for their baby (like this session we did for Siena, who is 8 months old). The most obvious is that their child is growing like crazy and they want to forever preserve those changes in photographs. And there are many photographers who offer these types of sessions. They can be quick or elaborate. Cheap or expensive. But what sets my milestone sessions apart is the fact that my clients walk away with beautiful museum-quality prints in the end...
