“It was an absolute pleasure to work with Beth! Her ability to explain Apple’s Aperture program was clear and practical. Thank you for helping me to organize my photos and showing me how to scan photos into my library. I’m thrilled that I will now be able to use and find the thousands of photos in my photo library.”

Personalized Gifts

Mariscal - Frame 2

“Beth recently created two gifts for me that can only be described as works of art. Not only did they capture the recipients’ personalities, but they were aesthetically beautiful and struck just the right tone. To say that I am a satisfied customer is a complete understatement. I plan to use PhotOptimist whenever I need a personalized gift in the future!”

Keepsake Memory Book for Mother’s Day

DSC_4377

“Beth put together a photo and memory book for my 85-year old mother for Mother’s Day. Her children and grandchildren each contributed a photo and a memory or funny story about Gramann. (Even her dog contributed a page!) Beth gave each family member several prompts to get the ideas flowing, collected the photos and stories via email, and put together a fabulous book using my mother’s favorite colors to tie it all together. Beth was fun to work with, had great ideas, and the whole project seemed effortless. We all had fun being a part of it and Gramann was moved to tears when the book arrived in the mail. Best Mother’s Day present ever! ”

Custom Gift Tags

 

“When I wanted gift tags for my homemade maple syrup, I knew immediately who to ask for help. What a perfect coincidence that my talented friend Beth Shedd was about to launch her photOptimist business. She did the photography, gave me design options and came up with the perfect product. “

Photo Note Cards

“I have known Beth for many years (dare I say 20) and have always been in awe of her amazing eye for every beautiful detail of our world. No color, texture, movement or feeling escapes her artistic eye…she goes everywhere with her camera. A few years back while visited my home on Nantucket, Beth presented me with the best hostess gift I have ever received; a box of cards with a selection of her photos of many of the places and beautiful sights she had photographed during her prior visit.  I was there for all the shots but what she captured was so much more beautiful than I remember —A lone seagull on a sand dune; An overturned skiff, beautiful and ghostly in the fog; A spectacular Nantucket window box dripping with flowers;, A colorful fishing boat in the marina, my home from a distance over a marsh with an old post fence in the foreground. The cards were a perfect size and had a wonderful feel to them. I used the cards sparingly — only sent on special occasions to friends and relatives. Every time I sent a card the recipient would comment and ask where I had gotten such a lovely card. I was sad to use them up. I loved each and every photo on the cards and even asked Beth if I could have a large print of one of the photos to frame and hang in my home. I am beyond excited that Beth’s work is now available for sale. I am planning to be a frequent customer and can’t wait to see what wonderful things she has been creating.”

 “My own one-of-a-kind photo album celebrating more than a decade of friendship and family was the most special gift I received on my big birthday.  I cried, laughed, and slowly savored each meticulously crafted photo page.”
