Lindsay Alexander Photography

Hi, I’m Lindsay – a lifestyle and wedding photographer based in Fort Mill, South Carolina. After four years of business, I knew that I was ready for a change. When you own your own business and YOUR NAME is at the forefront of what you do, you want your product to be TRUE to who YOU are! Yes, I loved my old look . . . it was me THEN. I just wanted my new look to be ME NOW! I wanted everything to speak to the heart of why it is that I have this business in the first place and it took time and development as an artist and business owner to know that.

(Please click on each of the photographs below for a larger pop-up version. And visit Lindsay’s “Welcome Packet” post on her blog for a detailed explanation of each of the photos you see here.)

Ready for another awesome prize pack? This time we have Joyce Smith’s WordSmith for Photographers, Kotori Photo Jewelry, and Collages.net!

WordSmith giftcard prize contest

First up is a $300 shop credit to WordSmith for Photographers!

“When I was working on my Ph.D. in English literature and teaching freshman composition, I never imagined that I’d eventually bring my love of grammar, syntax, and all that other stuff that makes your head hurt to my career as a photographer. It quickly became obvious to me, however, that clear communication is paramount to creating a “good faith” working relationship with clients. Not to mention the fact that–let’s face it–writing is hard. I’ve always found it interesting that even gifted writers often loathe the laborious act of putting pen to paper or, even worse, staring at the dreaded blinking cursor. Experience writer’s block or frustration as you struggle for the right words no longer! Click on the home page to peruse our selection of documents and guides (ever expanding!) that will make your life as a photographer infinitely easier and oh-so-eloquent . . . today!”

And we are currently running a fall special with advertising rates up to half-off (or more) — and we’d love to have YOU join us!

Paperie Boutique ad sale autumn 2011

We’d like to welcome one of our newest advertisers – Swoone!

Swoone is a specialty design boutique created to meet the specific needs of the small business photographer. We create products to help photogs reach their business goals and to bring out the most in their work. We have two primary product categories; branding and marketing packages to help photographers develop brand presence and a variety of templates to highlight their work.

One of our long-time, best-selling product lines is our Seriously Simple collection. The clean, sharp design of this line translates well into albums, proof boxes, and wall displays. With so many combinations and varieties, there are an infinite number of ways to mix and match these templates.

We are also proud of our holiday card collections. One of our newest, Adornaments, is inspired by our favorite holiday shapes. It’s perfect card template set for the coming holidays. In fact, we think these templates look so incredibly cute/awesome/fantastic, that we know they’ll be perfect for any space – from the mantle to the dining room table to the family tree, these sets are worthy of a place front and center this holiday season.

Head over to our Facebook page for a complimentary Halloween Photocard template. Get ready to Swoone!
