Sarah Dobbins: Template Giveaway!

I am so excited to have the fabulous Sarah Dobbins sharing some of her gorgeous templates with us today.  And because she's so generous, she is even giving a template to one of you, as well as a 20% discount to her shop.  
Thanks, Sarah! 

A little about me :

I'm an editorial photographer who shoots private child and baby sessions for families across Tennessee. One of my clients' favorite things to purchase from me are custom albums filled with images from their photo sessions. As I set out to design some of my clients' albums, I knew that I wanted these things :

    a simple design that wouldn't compete with my images
    a timeless, elegant look that wouldn't look dated as my clients' tastes changed
    a template that I could use and re-use, and easily alter to fit my sessions--cutting WAY down on my album-design time

I designed a handful of different templates that fit my requirements, and it occurred to me that there might be other photographers like me who could use them too... so I put them on etsy! (

I love taking "requests"--in fact, my rounded-corner album was a suggestion from a repeat etsy-er, and I ended up LOVING it!

(And, by the way... if you're not a professional photographer, these are still great for family photos! I use them for our family albums every year!)

I'd love to give one of Shondra's readers one of my templates--just leave a comment on the blog about which template you'd like, and she'll select a lucky winner to receive that template for free! And don't forget to add my shop or my items to your favorites on etsy!

Also, all readers can get a discount on templates for a limited time--just use the code WALKWITHME20 to get 20% off your purchase!

  2. Such beautiful photographs. I see I still have a lot to learn. I think a good step forward would be with a template for an album. I am following this awesome blog and I tweeted at twitter. Also, since I am into 'whimsical' I love the "Whimsical Square Album Template" at Sarah's Etsy Shop. ;o)
