We have our three winners from our Back to School Photo Contest! All the photos were adorable and inspired fun back to school photo ideas for many parents. We did a random drawing and here are the winners!
Our first winner is … Jackson! Jackson started Kindergarten this year. His mother, Amye, said, “I had very mixed feelings about Jackson’s first day of Kindergarten. After having a slight meltdown during the summer when completing his registration forms, I was very worried about what may happen on the first day of school. I am happy to report both Jackson, and his mommy (me), did very well and there were no tears. It was an exciting, and fun, first day! He is LOVING his new school, Southminster Day School, and Kindergarten!” Congratulations and we are so happy to hear to the first day went well for both Jackson and mom – no tears shed!
Are you planning to send valentine cards that friends and family will love? Then you should spend a little time thinking about valentine photo ideas, first. There is one simple thing you can do to make your photos pop: use props!
Since most Valentine’s Day photo cards share a palette of pinks and reds, adding a shot of pink or red to your photo is a fun way to tie your photo into the card design. A cute prop, such as a big candy heart or a flower that matches the colors in your card, makes it look like the card and photo were meant for each other.
Real cards created by real people like you!
When our customer, Lindsey, decided to take a photo of her son in his new Halloween costume, she was a little worried about getting him to cooperate. “I didn’t think that my son would actually keep the costume on long enough for me to take this photo.” But using a little mom-ingenuity, she came up with a great idea. “The wagon was a distraction to get him to focus on something else other the big ears, fuzzy feet and long tail. The wagon is a new toy for him (an awesome hand-me-down from his two cousins in Seattle, WA) and since he hasn’t quite figured out how to use it as a walker yet, he likes climbing into and sitting in it.” Great photo? Check.
Next on the list was finding Halloween card ideas. Lindsey says, “I was looking at several websites for a photo card that was modern, clean and simple – yet fun and really highlighted the photo – and Pear Tree Greetings was the only site that had options that worked for what I was looking for.” Excellent choice, Lindsey with our Striped Halloween Greeting – Halloween Photo Card. And we love that your photo is black and white, which makes the card the perfect Halloween-y combination of black and orange.
You may not have thought about sending out Halloween photo cards, but as Lindsey will tell you, “it’s a fun way to send family members a recent photo and certainly is a nice memento to have that shows my son’s growth over his first year. Thanksgiving and Christmas cards are next!”
