photo birth announcement for jax

Welcome Jackson! This Colts family wanted to show some team spirit with their photo birth announcement design.
After enhancing the photos, I made the sibling photo grayscale and pulled out the blue accents. I love the gray and blue together. In creating my design for these images, I added more background to the main image because I loved the texture it provided. It adds a neat visual interest, and mimics the stripes on the shirt in the inset photo as well as the stripes on Jackson's shirt in the main image.
Your custom birth announcement from Chouette Design at http://www.photoinnovation.com/ is created just for you, based on your photograph and details you provide on your order form. It can be anything you'd like! Classic, fun, modern, trendy...
While we could create simple "drop-in" template designs, we prefer creating one-of-a-kind photo announcements for you. And your photos will look like they could have been taken in a studio, even if they weren't!

holiday announcement for luke

This holiday announcement design is for Luke, whose mom has been a great customer for several years. Each year she sends a wonderful photograph and a fun phrase to build a design around. This year it was "let heaven and nature sing". And this is what I came up with --- a simple yet beautiful way to express their holiday message and show off the photograph. As far as photo enhancement goes, I just brightened it up overall, then with a duplicate layer, brightened up specific areas a bit more. This really lets the light shine on Luke's sweet face.

photo adoption announcement

It's really fall! And while the thermometer says it is 54 degrees outside, try telling that to my frozen fingers. I'm so cold! This isn't a good sign. I'm trying to tell myself the cold is "refreshing" rather than painful. It's not quite working. I wonder how long it will take my body to figure out I'm not in Atlanta anymore! In the meantime, we're stocking up on wood for the fireplace and I'm thinking electric blankets might be a good investment.
And to help me think of warm days, a photo adoption announcement featuring photos taken on a beach! A warm, sandy, sunny beach. Ahh...perhaps if I close my eyes...
