Making it Offical

| Wednesday, June 23, 2010

my new photography postcards came today (thanks Vistaprint!). They have my new prices and information on them. If anyone would like to "book a time" feel free to email my spankin' new email address: amandapeckphotography at gmail dot com (typed it like that for spamming purposes FYI).
Next month is filling up FAST. like in super fast. August is pretty open but September won't be open much at all since I'll be in Utah hopefully most of the month.
If you would like to request a postcard I am willing to send one to you just let me know your address (through email :)) and I'll get one out to you!

this is my second week doing the I heart Faces fix it friday. i have a lot of fun doing them so you might see more through the weeks.

my process:
i added a grunge Polaroid texture with screen mode (sorry can't remember where i got it but it was free ;)) then masked her skin so the grunge wouldn't show up

TRA Calire-ify 25%
TRA Pross Crossed #2 15%

Here are a few photos from an engagement shoot I did this weekend. It was way to sunny (if there could be such a thing these days). Loved the weather except for the 2 hours i took photos haha.

I hate when I realize how little I actually know about photography so classes here i come!...again
if anyone is interested i used Totally Rad Actions by the Boutwells and their Dirty Pictures Texture plug-in. love them.

I'm a Big Kid Now!

| Wednesday, June 2, 2010
last night i got a wild hair to make some business postcards. i decided the front should be a picture and the back would have my prices and whatnot. i got a prettttty good deal on them too which is extra nice. these are the ones i chose not to use. I made 3 different ones thinking i could order 25 of each but then only ended up being able to print 100 of the same design. so i chose another one that i won't put up here yet, i want it to be a surprise!

these pictures of the pratt family are probably some of my favorite. and i think it's about time for another photo shoot since that little baby she's holding turns 2 today and there's another little baby now!!

i won't post the backside either yet, i'll wait until the real ones get here. i'm super excited. i hope they print fast!
