Picture This!

Let's face it, many of us consider ourselves to be proficient picture takers these days.  Thanks to technology we can automatically erase a pic and take a better one.  Even phone cameras can detect when you need a flash and have auto focus.  Thanks to photo editing software we can erase blemishes (or an ex), red eye, center the pic and even make us 20lbs lighter!

But there is nothing like the skilled craft-woman and talent of a true photographer.  Instead of taking a picture to tweak and fix they capture the right lighting, form and setting to result in a perfect picture.
Laura Herr Photography is a photo artist located on Long Island New York and captures people's greatest and happiest moments  from weddings, births and every day happy moments.   I was lucky enough to be able to be affiliated with her and she took a few pictures of my favorite summer candles.  Making these candles was fun but now that she took pictures of them they look stunning (if I do say so myself)!  You must check out her website and blog with happy pics of people I want to know and places I want to be.  That's the feeling her pictures evoke.

For a limited time if you visit her blog and comment on our feature  "Making Scents of it All" one lucky person will be randomly selected to use a $20 credit on our Etsy shop!  Offer ends May 21st so hurry!
