Shout out to my facebook fans- I have a giveaway going on today only for a Christmas card template! Go To my facebook page for all the details. And enter :)


Let me tell you a short story . . .

One day, 2 photographer friends got talking and decided they just couldn't find any great Christmas Cards to use for their clients, or for themselves! With the card season approaching, they started to panic knowing the Christmas rush would be awfully overwhelming without some ready to go card templates!  Well. . . . after snuggling their 6 combined children to bed, they drove far and wide to get together and see what they could come up with.  Several hours, two pumpkin pie shakes, and 8 sets of cards later... 3 am design was born. 
And we are SO dang excited about it!! Me and Chels are a great team and I think we came up with some stuff you will really love! You can change all the colors and text on each card to fit you taste. We obviously LOVE the bright, happy colors :) We feel like we made options for everyone. You can buy the whole set to use for your clients, or just one card for yourself!   If you don't own photoshop, no worries!  Purchase the flattened jpeg file, send us your picture & we will make it for you & send you the file to print.  The great part about a double sided designed card is it can be used for eight cards....or 16 if you are only printing single sided!  Double bonus!
Now... go check out the 3am design blog and buy look around :)

How to look thinner in photos!

Who want's to learn?  Hope these tips help:)
(click on blog to view video, if viewing in reader)

Stretch it Out
When posing on the ground, make sure to stretch out your legs. This will elongate your body, making it so you're not cut off at the knees.

Take it to the Edge
Always sit on the edge of the chair. Your posture will look much better and remember - the closest body part to the camera always looks the largest.

Your Best Side
Turn sideways to the camera, planting one foot in front of the other. Point your toe to the camera and place all your weight on your back foot. This allows you to look thinner by centering your weight away from the camera. (This is a great trick the celebs use!)

Look Up
When taking a photo it's important that your photographer does not snap the picture from below. This adds another 20-50 pounds to the 10 pounds automatically and annoying added by the camera. So bend down so they can get a great angle from up top!

Be Aware
Be aware! Pull head slightly forward, and tip chip down to minimize any appearance of a double chin. Hold your arms slightly away from your body. This keeps upper arm flab from flattening out.


shop, shop, shop

I have talked about this great secret place to shop before, but today on zulily have a killer deal that would work great for photos! Petti skirts have been quite popular in photos and these are great because they are only $13 :) I would go for these softer colors that you could pair up with a nice leopard cardigan to richen up the look. Sometimes you need to be careful with the bold contrasting colors in petti skirts because it can look cheesey cheapen the look :) Hurry and get them they sell out fast!

You will love this spot. This is where I get almost all my girls designer labels. They often sell lola et moi, and twirls and twigs. They are some of my favs!



Jammies, pumpkin candle, yummy treats, and most importantly a wonderful message.
Wasn't it great?
