They Are Back In School...
They are back in school...
It’s the end of August; and what does that mean? If you’re a parent with school age children, this is the time we as parents are excited and overcome with joy, because the kids are heading back to school. Especially after the last 17-18 months of homeschooling (virtual) due to Covid protocols. I'm sure you've taken out the camera to document your child's back to school picture. Ha..ha...I did too. It's a tradition!
If you're in the Los Angeles area, many of our kids went back to school last week. This has afforded me the opportunity to be at home and get work done instead of being the peacekeeper, referee, lunch superintendent, teacher, etc. How about you?
It’s hard to believe I have a high school senior and a new teenager! I look at my kids and wonder where has the time gone.
Beautiful Story Box - Ervin
Beautiful Story Box
This beautiful Story Box will be a centerpiece in any room of your home you place it in. Tamieka Smith Photography offers two different types of Story Boxes. This Story Box has a built-in window frame to showcase your beautiful family portraits or military portraits inside.
This Story Box features a newly promoted Ft. Belvoir Army Colonel. It's no secret I'm a huge advocate for printing family pictures. With the heavy use of cell phones and cell phone pictures, many of us have let the printed portrait go by the wayside.
This Story Box is an easy way to showcase your portraits.
5 Tips to Create Luxury Packaging
Turn Your Portrait Packaging Into A Luxury Experience
Luxury packaging isn't only for the high-end retail stores in Beverly Hills, it's possible to create a luxurious experience in your portrait studio. It doesn't matter if you are making a purchase online or in person, your product will be delivered in some type of packaging. This is also true for professional photographers. Where your portrait studio hand delivers to clients or send the portraits through the mail, the first thing you'll want to consider is how to protect your wedding pictures, family pictures, maternity or newborn pictures.
You'll want to ensure your portrait packaging is sturdy and will properly protect the beautiful artwork you've created.
Impress your portrait clients with a creative and over the top unboxing experience.
National Museum of the United States Army
Did you know there is a new venue in the Northern Virginia? The National Museum of the United States Army in Fort Belvoir is now open and available for service members to have their military promotion or retirement ceremony. This is great because The National Archives books out extremely fast and service members are consistently looking for alternative locations.
With this venue coming online, it is a great first choice for many military members, especially Army service members.
A few weeks ago, I made this post on Facebook regarding how technology changes, and you don't want to have your family's portraits get lost on obsolete technology.
If you remember, not to long ago, CDs were the rave. You could find them everywhere; on your computer, DVD, car, etc. Families used CD to store their family pictures, to listen to music and more.
Then we moved to USBs. Have you purchased a new computer recently? USB drives are typically not included in a standard computer purchase.
