Melissa Landres Photography

I received the most beautiful package ever from Melissa Landres Photography (feel free to visit her blog):


A few weeks ago my sister and I did a small photo shoot. I had called Melissa and told her exactly what I wanted - I described three poses. And she gave exactly that and more, lots more!

I now have plenty of pictures to do a blog header. I love it when I have a vision and I can call the right person to bring it together for me.















What do you think?


So this is my first draft of a header:



What do you think?

I do like the white in between the pictures - but I guess if I want to keep the template I have now I can change it to green.

What I would like to do is figure out how to get some cool fonts, and jazz it up a bit more, and then add the same style fonts to the blog content. Does anyone know how to do that? And point me in the right direction??

Thank you, Thank you Melissa Landres!!!

Thank you Melissa and CK for the font links. I think I found one I like - but not to sure how to incorporate it throughout the blog. One more thing to learn in this blog world. lol

Thank you Jen. You do some wonderful work also. Love your blog and all your kiddo's - Emma looked so grown up on Sunday :)

@Pat - The Photogenic one is my little sister, Melissa says I put her in front to take the initial impact of the camera. I did loosen up after a while and stopped worrying about my chinese eyes and triple chin.
