sample albums

i've been busy! but i finally managed to snap some shots of my new sample albums yesterday at naptime, so i wanted to share them. i have a ZILLION pictures to blog - all personal, from a week spent in raleigh with my parents, and a wedding i went to as a guest there (uhh... with my camera...) - but i wanted to at least get these up! these first images are of the "Traditional Matted Album" i offer; this is a 20- or 30-sided leatherbound 8X8 album with a cameo window in the cover; this is one of the two options i offer muslim brides who wear hijab and would like to have a wedding album containing images of themselves without hijab. the pictures would be captured and processed by me, then printed at a local, professional lab by women only (i have an arrangement with this excellent lab), picked up by me and hand-mounted into this album, assembled by me in the privacy of my home studio. the images in this sample album are a mix of portraits from wedding, family and individual portrait shoots i have done.

this next series shows the "Wedding Book" i offer; professionally produced at the amazing forbeyon. it's an 8X8 album with stiff, slightly glossy pages on which the images are printed directly (not photographic prints). the result is classy and enduring, at less cost than a flush mount album but with a similar design style. this cover shows the standard cover material option (black) with a cameo image printed on metal, but there are many other cover options. this sample album showcases the beautiful, loving wedding of jamil and mahdiyah which i shot back in march.
