My First Kiss January 4, 2008

…Wedding book that is.

I got big news for my 2008 brides. I am now adding simply bee-you-tee-ful handmade pure Italian leather albums from a homegrown company called KISS to my album offerings. Available in five funky colors, the leather is extremely supple and soft. The sample below is in Redlight Red. Isn’t it yummy looking?

And while the leather is amazing, what I love the most about it is the binding. When compared with a standard flushmount album, the binding of the spine is sturdy and tight. Plus, the prints which allow for a seamless 12X24 inch spread, no gutter in the middle!

I am totally psyched to start showing the sample around! I also plan on offering these leather albums to those who avail of premium family portrait sessions. Just ask me about them!



Martin @ Santa Monica Pier February 19, 2007

It’s wonderful to be outside shooting again! We had a wonderful shoot at the Santa Monica Pier with Mylene, Marlon and their cute three-year-old Martin. The three hour shoot just flew by, as we took shots at the beach, the arcade and the boardwalk. It was my first time to visit that part of Los Angeles and it’s no surprise why it’s such a popular spot with photographers. Now that we’re back in the Bay Area and the nippy weather, we’re definitely California dreaming about the warmth of L.A. and it’s friendly residents.

Below is the album layout for Martin’s Pictorial Book, which is available ala carte when you book a Family or Child Portrait session with Photograffiti.  Check out the slideshow here.
