I'm Nikki, a creative old soul who loves tea time, tip-toeing through gardens, mounds of books, swaying to records, watercolors, sunset walks with our three yorkies, and star-gazing with Paul. This blog carries snippets of my life with just us two (five with Rusty, Lucy, & Ethel) - I hope it brings you happiness as you snuggle in with something warm and delicious and begin reading. Enjoy, friends!

Welcome to my Welcome Packet

My Welcome Packets are a somewhat new addition to my branding. I hated showing up to meet clients with just a laptop, notebook, and pen. I felt like they deserved more – something that they would be excited to open, take home, and keep. So what is a Welcome Packet?? It’s pretty much me saying, “Hi!! I’m so excited to meet you and I can’t wait to show you all the hard work and love that I put into my photos and business! Here! Take this! Open it! I made it just for you!! I’m so glad to have met you!!” There’s a lot of !! in that dialogue which means I’m pretty excited about these. They’re nothing too elaborate but they’re mine. I made them, I designed them, I put them together each time I meet with a bride, and I love them. You know what I love more?? When a bride opens it and says “Omigosh, this is so cute!” Icing on the cake. :) So here it is – welcome to my Welcome Packet:

I love my little accordion books. Love, love, love them.

I love working with WHCC (White House Custom Colour) for my packaging supplies. And H-B Photo. They are my number one people to order through. Just saying. Anyways! I’m off to meet a lovely bride tonight so I shall say good bye until Friday! :)
