Hey friends! I am "just" a little excited over today's blog post. It's going to rock your socks off (hint: don't forget to scroll to the bottom for the giveaway)! But first, I want to thank every one who submitted your wonderful film images. Again, I am blown away by the talent of our fans. Do you love classic portraits? I do. I am drawn to its simplicity and its timelessness. I am attracted to a beautifully shot portrait that commanding respect. It demands my attention. It seems as if nothing else in this world mattered except for the subject and me. There is a sense of uncomfortable intimacy between us. The eyes of the subject seem to tell me "look at me, look at my soul" but I am too timid to stare too long.
I love everything about this stunning portrait by Lea Hartman.

Let me present you Snap Point Picture Frames by Thistle and Poppy. As photographers, we understand the importance of getting the images printed and mounted on the walls. There is no simpler way to update your frames and your photos than Thistle and Poppy's mixing and matching framing system. Here is a glimpse of how it works:
Thistle and Poppy had generously sent a sample set of Snap Point Picture Frames for me to try. Needless to say that I was beyond excitement when the package arrived in a securely packaged box with plenty of padding to protect the valuable frames inside.
I am pleasantly surprised at the superior quality of the wooden frames and base. I feel they can definitely stand through the test of time. The frames are made from recycled wood. The colors are hand painted and finished to perfection. Both frame top and base are embedded with magnets which hold the photo securely in place. It can not be any simpler to design your own frame using Thistle and Poppy's Snap Point Frames! Here is how:
- Select the style of your frame base and frame trim
- Select the colors that compliment or match your decor
- Place your photo on the frame base
- Snap the frame trim in place...done!
The interchangeable frame trim and base allow you to create over 42,000 different combinations to fit your decor and style. Thistle and Poppy's innovative design doesn't stop here. You should try out their virtual designer to help you sort through different combination of colors and style before purchase!
