EDIT: I've had quite a few e-mails/messages from people trying to find a box like the one seen below in this photo from Kelly Anderson Photography:
So I thought I needed to update this post with a little more information on how you can acheieve the same look (by doing the same thing as Kelly) for your sessions. First, just grab a regular cardboard box, make sure it has a blank side, or if it has writing or graphics on it... just make sure you can edit them out in Photoshop. Next you can use this overlay from the "In Bloom" Maternity Overlay set that I created inspired by Kelly's image! :) Apply it in photoshop after you are done editing your photo, and it should look something like this: I chose black as the color for my shape (overlay) and then chose the overlay blending mode to make the shape more transparent, and so the natural shadows of the box could show through. :)
I'm always excited when photographers send me peeks at how they are using my overlays. I enjoy the images posted to the VOL25 facebook wall too! :) Anyhow, this image from Kelly Anderson Photography is NO exception... I LOVE the creativity!
In other news... I'm working on my 2011 Holiday card templates!! :) They're a little different. I always kind of shy away from making them too Christmas-ey. I'm not really sure why that is? Maybe just a personal preference?
