Easter Printables & Portraits!

Easter is one of the most popular celebrations in the US. That’s because it’s a celebration with a backbone – that backbone being the beautiful universal story of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. And yet, it’s a celebration filled with sweets and pastels and outdoor activities. Which means we get to spend time with people whose company we love and enjoy ourselves all at the same time! It doesn’t get much better than that!

Below, you’ll find printable backgrounds and designs that will help keep the kiddos entertained while they wait for the Easter Bunny to arrive! The designs are so adorable and can be put together in a frame as a keepsake when Easter is over! I have several other designs that are perfect for decorating your home on Easter. Find all of them in the shop by clicking on the link below!

Have you been looking for an Easter gift that is unforgettable? Look no further and get those personalized Easter Printables or Minimalist Portraits while they last! I had the honor of spending time one-on-one with a child recently and was even allowed to take his sweet little portrait. As I was creating his portraits, I was reminded of how much fun it is to see a perfect, cute little kid grow up. Just like watching one of my nephews or nieces on Facebook where every new post is accompanied with a tale about how “big” this person has suddenly become. As you create your own portrait keep in mind that I do have blank, non-personalized Easter Printables available for those who wish to create their own “story” with their children.

[TOP FIVE TIPS to Help You Save on Wedding Videography]

I’m always looking for ways to reach out to you guys, my clients. I hope to help you find resourceful elements, helpful tips, neat ideas. I hope you feel welcome to reach out to me as we get closer to your wedding day.
I develop the neatest relationships with my clients- some ask me for help on timelines, some for photo ideas, some go so far to ask if I think COLORS look good together! This job is a whirlwind but it is a dream at the same time.
As a former bride, I know what it’s like to have to come up with extra cash in a short amount of time… and having to pay for a wedding on your own. So I wanted to find a way to share how to cut some odds and ends. While I rank Videography as one of the highest priorities in a wedding day, here are a few great ways to save on the trade..

  1. Share your budget: Did you find your dream videographer but… they’re out of your price range? TELL THEM! Ask if there are packages in your price range or deals they can make. MOST Videographers can be flexible. And while we’re at it- what do you have to lose?
  2. Wed during the “slow season”: Some videographers will offer discounts or will be more flexible during their “slow season,” aka Winter, or days that cancellations may have occurred. While videographer hunting- consider your own schedule and how flexible YOU can be- ask them if they have dates they are trying to fill. You never know what they might offer!
  3. Lose the extras: Do you really need the extra reception hours? Hours of “getting ready” coverage? Modify and capture the highlights. I recommend 6-8 hours of videography to all my clients,even when they request 10.
  4. Trim the Fat: Many videographers work with assistants. If you can’t afford the additional help during the entire wedding, ask if they can only be present for a particular amount of time. I’d recommend sending them home once the reception gets started- you can only have so many videos of drunken dancing!
  5. Ask About Editing: Inquire with your videographer if it is possible to purchase an edited copy of the ceremony and unedited cuts of the reception. This will cut the videographer’s editing time nearly in half and they may be likely to give you a price break.

Happy Planning!
