I just got a new batch of thumb drives. The people at Pexagon Technology totally rock it out! www.photoflashdrive.com

When it comes time for my clients to order prints, I always suggest ordering a canvas gallery wrap of their favorite image. I heart gallery wraps.

To create the wrap, your image is printed onto canvas, and then stretched over a wooden frame. The “gallery” part means that there are no staples or nails visible. The canvas is attached to the back of the wooden frame, so it isn’t visible. The gallery wrap comes out of the box ready to hang.

Gallery wraps are available in all sizes. They really give your pictures a “fine art” feel, and look wonderful as a stand alone, in a wall cluster above your couch, going up your stairs, or in your dining room.

The wrap can be ordered to include your image on the sides, or have a black, or white boarder like this one.

Several months ago, I worked with Rachel Faucett of Handmade Charlotte on a do-it-yourself activity you can do with your kids. She needed some photographs of her playing with her kids as well as some artist portraits made, which I love.

Rachael’s creativity is infectious. It never fails that an afternoon with her inspires me to redecorate a room in my house, or dust off my sewing machine for a quick project.

Last month, my photo adventure with Rachel was published in LaPetite Magazine. I was estatic to say the least. If you are a fan of my facebook page,  you will know first hand how excited I was. I upgraded my camera that night in true “Kate celebratory fashion.”

Part of the joy of my job is the brilliance I get to work with. Whether collaborating with another photographer, discussing a shoot with a bride or a mother of 4, or recording unforgettable moments, I am always inspired by other people, and the way they see the world.
