Handmade Portrait Album

All albums are cautiously, handmade. The quality of the paper, printing and the materials used for the cover are all of a very high standard and I always feel great pride paging through them before I deliver them to my client.

One of my favorite things about these albums is the attention to detail and ability to personalize the album, both for the client as well as for myself. My name and logo is embossed on every album cover, and is made from brown leather which lends a luxurious feel. Dimensions are 11 x 14 inches and includes 16 pages (32 sides). The inside cover also includes a  sheet of strong tissue paper to protect the first page against any discoloration and stains. 

How the design process works:

I personally design each album from scratch using amazing design software called Pixellu Smart Albums. The entire album will contain around 35 images and each spread (two flat pages) contains no more than 4 - 5 images as to keep the design simple and elegant. My clients are always thrilled with the editorial-style layouts (large imagery, use of negative space, no busy collages, etc.)

Clients have the choice of selecting their own images for the album or allow me to choose for them. I then design the first draft and upload it to my profile on Pixellu for online proofing. What I love about this step is, is that the client can flip through the album as it would look in print and even better, you can make comments on each spread about changes to be made. Photos are numbered so it is amazingly convenient to refer to specific photos you might want changed.

Once the album is just the way you want it, I send it off the the printer and within 2 weeks your new album will be in your hands ready for your viewing pleasure.

If you have any more questions regarding the album itself or design process, please do not hesitate to contact me!
