Senior Yearbook Ads and Commemorative Pillows

Lucy ElwyScreen Shot 2016-03-09 at 10.29.39 PM

“Beth is a dream to work with–she is creative, efficient, impressive, professional and truly saved me a ton of time and money during this very busy 2015-16 senior year. Beth created my daughter’s senior yearbook spread, and provided me with delightful, well crafted one-of-a-kind WHS graduation presents for 4 graduating seniors. (I was only going to buy one keepsake pillow for my daughter but when I saw how awesome they were, I quickly purchased 3 more!). When I contacted Beth about the senior yearbook piece, I was desperate–the due date was near, and although I had selected my daughter’s photos and some captions for the yearbook, there was no way I was going to be able to put these together in any dignified way. I contacted Beth and within hours–HOURS–I had the most gorgeous photo spread for the yearbook. Beth, thank you for your talents and for your time! I feel so lucky to have found you!”

“Beth has a gift of capturing the true essence of her subjects. Her gentle and very efficient style put my daughter at ease and very quickly we had so many beautiful options from which to choose. Her choice of background was brilliant and her eye for light just right. We would highly recommend Beth for this work that is so personal and important as it captures our lives.”

Photo Memory Book

HART, Chris - Testimonial

“Beth created a photo book for my son’s graduation that was truly amazing!

I knew what I wanted, but did not have the time or expertise to create it. Beth understood what I was looking for after a brief discussion, told me what I needed, and proceeded to put together a  creative and unique book celebrating  my son’s life from birth to graduation.  She gave excellent advice and suggestions along the way and was so easy to work with.

You must have the photoptimist, Beth Shedd, help you with your next project.”

Sue Ellen - You Are My Sunshine

“Beth has once again surpassed my expectations. I just had an idea and a so-so photo which she managed to dress up by helping me address lousy backdrop. I wanted it in center of a canvas surrounded by song lyrics! I couldn’t be happier! Thanks again, Beth..”

Photo Collage Pillows!

16x16

16×16″ Photo Pillows are a wonderful way to decorate a room and celebrate life events. I created these pillows for 11 high school friends to remember their years of friendship.

“Beth’s creativity and hard work is unmatched.  It was so much fun to collaborate with her!!!  I could not have been more thrilled with how adorable the end product was.  She is the best and most creative designer that I’ve worked with.  They were the most memorable graduation gifts for my daughter and her friends…. When the moms saw them they wanted to keep them for themselves!!!!”
