I’m so excited to announce that Design Design is expanding to now offer photography! It has been a dream of mine to diversify the business by offering photography services in addition to invitation/announcement stationery design, and I’m happy to be making it a reality.
One of the greatest things about obtaining my BFA in Graphic Design from the Cleveland Institute of Art is that they encourage crossing mediums. In addition to design, I was able to study drawing, painting, fibers, and photography. At that time, the photography was black & white film that I developed myself in the dark room. I loved the experience and found it very creative and rewarding.
During the past ten years that I have worked as a Graphic Designer, I have worked with several photographers, styled and art directed hundreds of photo shoots, and edited countless photos for print and web. Editing has ranged from minor cosmetic to major changes – like totally changing a room! Now it’s my turn to get behind the lens and bring all the knowledge that I have learned from art directing and editing into creating photos.
I was the girl growing up always taking pictures of her friends, family, pets, and anyone else who would let me! When my babies were little I was obsessed with capturing every moment on my camera – down to the tiniest detail. I often look back at those photos and am so grateful for them. I love that photography captures a moment in time, and preserves it forever.
I am happy to now offer photography to capture your special moments - Weddings, Engagement, Family, Babies/Children… Please contact me for rates and to schedule a session.
