We’ve been keeping busy and quiet while we were working away planning not only our new look but a new direction for our shop…one with a bit more heart.
So, what’s new?
You asked, we listened!
1. FIND THE PRINTS YOU WANT EASIER
You can now browse through to find prints MUCH easier with our broken down menu items. Shop by doors, photo orientation, colour and more. This will make it easy to create the best gallery wall for you!
2. SHOPPABLE GALLERY
Yup, you can now shop directly from our inspiration gallery with two easy clicks. No more toggling between tabs to find which print you like.
and the best for last
3. GIVING BACK
This all started probably about 6 months ago. The climate of the world is not the greatest and I found myself struggling to keep positive and motivated to work on “pretty photos” when there was so much suffering in the world. I wanted to do my part but kept saying to myself I’m just a photographer…what can I do?
I started to really pay attention (and yes, almost envy) these amazing small business that had a purpose and were giving back to incredible causes and helping their community. How amazing that they could turn doing what they love not only to make a living for themselves, but to help better others?
Again, I found myself feeling I wish I had that.
Then one day close to after Vegas, as I was sitting in my family room looking up at my photo ledge lost in thought it dawned on me. I had a shop. I had a product I sold. What if I changed things up and started to donate every month to a different charity, organization or cause? As soon as I said it out loud to my Mr. I knew it was the solution and new direction I had been looking for.
So, to kick things off…
In the months of November – December we will be donating a portion of our sales to Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto.
They are currently raising funds to build a new hospital to provide better care for children. We rushed our little one there when he was only a few months old, thankfully it turned out to be nothing but I had never been more scared in my entire life. I was so thankful to the nurses and doctors there who were patient, kind and answered all our (new parent) Q’s.
Come January we will be choosing a different organization and cause to support!
Psst, don’t worry we are still hosting our annual Black Friday 30% off sale. Just with a little bit more giving.
Want bigger savings? Our VIP’s get to save even more during this sale. CLICK HERE to join now.
Need more help?
We’re here all season long! Send us over a photo of the space you want to fill up and I’ll personally give you my recommendations! firstname.lastname@example.org
