17th Birthday Memory Booklet

DSC_4682Matt Karpowicz - Memory Book

“I’m not sure which was more enjoyable: working with Beth to put together a memory book for my son’s 17th birthday gift, or having the book, which brings a smile to our faces and touches my heart every time we look through it.  Beth uses her considerable technical skills and delightful imagination to create a wonderful product that will be enjoyed for many years to come!”

Surprise Party Memory Booklet

 

DSC_3121“Beth did a photo book of a friend’s surprise birthday party. I gave her a folder of miscellaneous items (menu, restaurant card, etc.), the chronology of events, and many emailed photos, some of dubious quality. The finished product was polished, professional, and exactly what I envisioned–with virtually no effort on my part. She even got all the names right! Beth was a pleasure to work with: proactive, super-organized, and detail-oriented. Definitely try PhotOptimist for your next project, large or small.”

Birthday Memory Booklet

Clare

“Wow! What a great idea I found on your website for a birthday book for my cousin, Clare. It was the perfect gift to present to her after her husband threw a surprise party. She had tears in her eyes as she sat with her family flipping through each page. I don’t think a day goes by that she isn’t looking through that book. The amount of detail you added with your creative talents was nothing short of impressive. I was amazed how you identified the crowd and captured all the unique expressions on faces. It almost seemed as if you were at the party and had known the group forever! My favorite was how you captured my Uncle Jack sneaking a moment watching the Bruins playoff game! Thank you so much. Can’t wait to order more products from you in the very near future.”

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!”

16th Birthday Keepsake Booklet

I designed this little memory booklet for my daughter’s 16th birthday.  I used her favorite color and pattern and provided 2 prompts for guests to choose from and voila! …a keepsake was quickly created right before the cake was cut! Clip the pages all together with a silver ring and wrap in an organza bag, and you’ve got a beautiful and sentimental memento from a fabulous day!

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. “
