Last Copies of Our Fine Art Book

We recently went digging into our closet to pull out some more copies of our fine art book – Lobster Island – to send out, and realized that we’re down to the final boxes!

Holy smokes! It’s been a pretty amazing sight to see these go off into the mail, sharing our experience documenting lobster fishing in Prince Edward Island. It’s not something we ever thought we’d actually witness – a book of our own, being shared with others. And to say it’s been a rewarding journey is to put it mildly!

How To Get Your Family Photos Into An Album

Getting your family photos into an album can be a huge challenge. It requires a lot of work, thought, time, and skill. Photography is quite important to me (no kidding), and I treasure my family photos more than anything, but as it stands I have only created two family photo albums. Ever.
