COMBINING A LOVE OF DESIGN + PRINT
I’m pretty dorky... I love to laugh. I love to sing. I love to cook. I love to create. I’m pretty crap at one of those four. Lucky for me it doesn’t influence my work.
Elysian Creative is the culmination of 11 years of self-discovery and I’m so excited to share my passion for design with a community of people who love photos. I love how a photograph can transport you back to a moment otherwise gone.
My favourite thing in the world is to treasure these keepsakes of your memories and nothing makes me happier than putting them together in a pretty package and knowing you’ll be displaying them in your home.
We've also 'recently' added a little bundle of love to our family in the form of our daughter, Emerson Anne and since becoming a mom, now more than ever I realise just how important it is to capture and save the fleeting moments... because they really do go by in the blink of an eye.
WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO
This business was born from my own experience of being a fresh-off-the-conveyer-belt bride..
That is having just experienced the joy and excitement of our wedding day, and the follow up experience of receiving our wedding photos and wedding album.
When my photographer sent the digital layout of our wedding album I wasn’t 100% happy. Wanting different images and this process was hard. Then it hit me.. how many other brides are experiencing this? And how many photographers dislike the album design process.
And so I birthed my first baby, my own business. She’s a joy and a delight and I wouldn’t swap her for anything.
MY DESIGN & FAVE STYLE
For photos taken by a professional photographer, I prefer your images to take the shine that they so deserve.
Considering that you made the decision to invest in a service to make those memories permanent, I want them to stand out and thus keep the design more on the simple side.
For other albums, happy snaps from your holiday or pics of your fam at home – whatever the occasion, the layout is slightly more relaxed but still true to my signature design style of less is more.
Basically, as long as you don’t ask me to add butterflies and print on metallic paper I don’t mind custom requests. My goal is design and print albums that will become family heirlooms not family curses.
SOMETHING MORE PERSONAL
I married my high school sweetheart and after 9 years of married bliss we had a baby girl who is the best part of our day!
I don’t like fruit salad but I love fruit. I’m ambidextrous. Instead of doing sport at school, I did dog showing (I have a major sweet spot for any dog I see because of this).
I’m an airforce wife and love our little community. I’m an undercover romantic and have watched every Nicolas Sparks movie ever made and I don’t care who judges me (guilty pleasures and all that!)
I secretly wish all the pins I add on Pinterest would magically appear in my house in real life. Let’s be honest – who doesn’t?
I have an intense need to travel to many, many places and make albums of them all!
