Thankyou Cards

After my sister's graduation party she decided to use to of my prints as her Thankyou Cards to share my work with friends and family. I thought I would share with you outcome. On the back of the cards I do place a lable that says who took the photo.

More of Ronnie's Senior Package

Along with getting his senior portraits, I designed two photo collages. I also tried something new and designed one of his photos into a magazine cover. I include the collages in all my portrait packages and depending on the poses I may include a magazine cover.

Senior Portraits - Ronnie

Ronnie Rea is a Mukwonago High School Student and will be graduating this coming year. On Saturday August 14th, we meet to take his senior pictures. The day was beautiful with a few clouds to block some of the sun's direct light. We meet at the Mukwonago high school with my sister and his girlfriend for support, and was hoping to take some portraits in the actual football field (sense he is a football player). Unfortunally the field was locked and the fence was too high to jump so he decided to head to a local park in Mukwonago. At first he was a little shy taking, but after some time he eased up and started having fun.

Card & Calendar Samplings

I ordered some cardstock from Photographer's Edge and decided to make a few samples to share with everyone. These can be added onto photo packages or can be ordered with my Fine Art Prints. (please visit http://www.ottophotography.photoshelter.com/ to see the prints).

Two Families - One Benefit

Sunday August 8th, Two Families - One Benefit was held at the Roma's Resturant in East Troy Wisconsin. After hearing the stories of the two families I want to at least help in some way. I learned that the benefit would be hosting a silent auction to raise money. I donated two free family portrait sessions and two framed photos. The families who recieved the framed photos were very happy about them. To read and learn more about the two families, please visit http://twofamiliesonecause.webs.com/.

Kohler Design Center

The Kohler Design Center is three stories of kitchen and bath products, designer rooms, luxury furniture, and Kohler history. The building was originally used as a recreation hall for residents of the Village of Kohler. In 1985 though, it was transformed into a 36,000 square-foot showcase for the extensive array of quality products offered by the Kohler family of businesses. The following photos I took during our visit at to the Kohler Design Center.
