Avon- A Grand Affair

I recently photographed an Avon award banquet in Fairfield, CA. Avon is always celebrating their representatives’ success and rewarded them for all their hard work. The theme of this banquet was “A Grand Affair” and was held for all the representatives in that district that sold $1,000 in campaign 25. Several of the top representatives also received tiaras, and, as always, they handed out some great raffle prizes including a flat screen TV! I will be posting the highlights of the event later, and Debbie Midling will be sending out an email containing the information on where to view the images. Congratulations everyone on your achievements!

Bianchi Family Portraits

This weekend we took family pictures of the Bianchis at Bianchi Orchards located on 99E towards Red Bluff, CA. We had a great time walking around their orchards and taking pictures. The kids had restored the old truck for their dad for his birthday, and it worked perfectly for their photo session! Happy Birthday Ray! Check out their nut shop located on on the orchard or you can purchase nuts and gift baskets online! We were lucky enough to get some honey-glazed and cinnamon-glazed walnuts and they were extremely tasty. The honey glazed walnuts didn't even make it home, and we only live about 7 miles down the road!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I wanted to share this picture that I took of our niece last summer. I came across this picture while we were trying to find images for our website updates! I just had to share it since it shows a special kind of love and a Star Wars creature! Araina loves all things baby, and the girls always love playing with Dusty's Star Wars collectibles. So when I told Araina this was a monster baby, she devoted all her attention to it! It was sooo funny to see an adorable little girl pretending that the Star Wars monster was her baby doll!

Color Palette

I am working on some new album designs that have more patterns and embellishments. These are mostly for kid albums, but they would also work for pretty much anything. Anyway, I was trying to come up with color palettes to use on my designs and found a few really good color palette generators online. Here is the link that I used to generate my color palettes for the below photos: They generate two color palettes that are based on the URL of the photo that you plug in. Last night while I was googling, I also came across Colour Lovers ( which is an extremely cool site. The site has thousands of color palettes and patterns to choose from. You can also create and post your own color palettes. I loved looking through the site and seeing all the great color combinations that I could use to design my albums. Now comes the hard part of narrowing down the color palettes that my clients can choose from for specific products!
