A Mom’s gotta brag a little…


My son loves to take photos.  He has the ability to see ordinary things in an extraordinary way.  A year and a half ago he bought a new digital SLR camera, and we’ve all enjoyed seeing  the world through his lens.

For the past two years, I’ve teamed up with him at Christmas to produce cards using a selection of his photos.  This year he bought a macro lens and took amazing plant photos last summer at Lotus Land and his Grandma’s garden, both in Santa Barbara.  (Sorry, Grandma doesn’t have a web site!)  It was really hard to narrow it down, but we finally decided  on 6 floral shots.  Before I show you the cards, I have to warn you that I’m not much of a photographer, and taking pictures of pictures is harder than you can imagine!

Poppy and Roses

Waterlilies and Rose

Lotus and Cosmo

The prints are standard 4×6 prints, mounted on a coordinating piece of cardstock 4 1/4 x 6 1/4 and attached to a 5 x 7 card.

Of course, there’s a custom stamp on the back to identify the photographer.
