PHOTOGRAPHY BY GALICIA | DESIGN WORK

Today I want to take some time and feature my friend Galicia of Photography by Galicia.

We met this past summer at a wedding here in the Tri-Cities. Galicia was the photographer and my husband Paul and I were doing the music. (Yes, my husband sings and I play guitar, but that's a whole different topic for another day!) In between our weddingly duties, we started chatting and the rest is history! 

I have had a blast working with Galicia over the past few months, helping to bring some of her vision and ideas to life. Galicia is an amazing photographer and offers so much to both her clients and fellow photographers.  The following are a few of the projects we have been working on and this is just the tip of the iceberg!

This is probably the biggest project we have been working on so far. This is an AWESOME resource for photographers with 60+ pages of posing examples as well as an inside look at Galicia's process of working with Seniors from beginning to end. I will be doing a separate post about this with a few more details in the near future. :-)

Here is what Galicia has to say about the posing guide...

I’m so excited to be launching the POSING GUIDE [+] for photographers. It has been a labor of love and in the works for a long while now. Let me say that SENIORS ROCK MY WORLD! I’m always researching the latest and the greatest to give each one of my seniors the “BEST” photography experience that is FRESH, MODERN and BOLD. This guide is more than just about POSING. It includes (60+ pages) of inspiration and how I create “A ONE of a KIND EXPERIENCE” that sets me apart from everyone else. I hope it will inspire you to take your senior photography to the next level!

I LOVE the style and passion Galicia brings to every one of her sessions. I hope you will take some time to give her a "LIKE" on Facebook or check out some of her amazing work on her website.

MARQUEL DODSON PHOTOGRAPHY | PACKAGING & BRANDING

I am so excited to get to show you the packaging and branding for Marquel Dodson Photography! A few months ago we launched Marquel's new website,www.marqueldodson.com, and then, to make her branding complete, started the task of designing her Welcome Packet and Product Packaging. All the amazing photos I'm going to show you are courtesy of Marquel Dodson Photography.

I love stamps and knew I wanted to incorporate them into her packaging design. During one of our brainstorming, coffee drinking sessions, we came up with her tagline, "Uniquely You" and I knew that needed to be one of the stamps. Marquel already had existing business cards with a big "Q" on them, so we decided to incorporate that as the second stamp design. I had the stamps made at www.rubberstamps.net and they turned out great! Just a note though, if you ever order from them, the wooden handles don't just come with the stamps so be sure to add them on!

The front of each Welcome Packet is stamped with the "Uniquely You" stamp and wrapped with twine around the binding.

Inside Marquel had a lot of information to fit into a small space! The left hand side includes cards with information about who her stylists are, session packages and print pricing along with her business card attached to the folder, and the right hand side is a Session Guide.

The Session Guide shows a bunch of ideas for styles/locations/props on the front of the cards and on the back clients can read through tips to help make their session a success.

Finally, to finish things off, once her clients purchase a print package they will receive a box full of goodies.

The outside of the boxes once again make use of her "Uniquely You" stamp, are wrapped with twine, and have a couple of mini cards attached.

I designed a variety of mini cards for Marquel to use with her packaging. They were printed at moo.com. I can't say enough about how much I love MOO!!!

Each box is full of goodies inside! A thank you card, a card with information about caring for your art, a yummy chocolate bar (this was all Marquel's idea!), a canvas bag stamped with her "Q" stamp and filled with a USB flash drive, referral cards and a few complementary wallets of one of Marquel's favorite shots from the session.

I had such a great time working on this project with Marquel! She has amazing photography skills and I hope you will take the time to visit her website and check out some of her work,www.marqueldodson.com.
