I am thrilled with the artwork and logo that was created for me. Amy was so easy and pleasant to work with, and she really helped my ideas and concepts come to life!

Changed my mind and asked for my $120 back before the files were even sent to me and I was told no. I would have even taken a credit for something else in the store, but that wasn't given to me either. So, now that I'm stuck with the purchase, I want it finished like I asked and she won't even communicate with me to finish the file as asked. She just keeps sending me a file so I have one, but I didn't agree to it. Amy's return policy states the "files" are non refundable, which I totally get...but I didn't have my files.l (although, now she is sending me a file so she can say she sent it to me). It's pretty disappointing especially as a returning customer for the 4th time. I won't be using Amy again.

Tia's custom logo purchase covered not only the deliverable files but more importantly the service to design a custom logo which included an intricate, hand-drawn, watercolor painted graphic element. She changed her mind after the design concept, with the exception of a minor font change, had been finalized and approved. Due to the digital nature of my work, I can't offer refunds, particularly after the initial design concept has been accepted.

About

Everyone has a story. I like to help people tell theirs.

Having been trained as a professional musician and holding a top job at a Harvard Library, making the choice to stay home with my first child was one I looked forward to with curiosity and a bit of apprehension. The busy life of commuting in a big city, working in one of the "smartest" universities in the country and performing music by night was replaced with lansinoh cream, Pampers, burp rags and strollers. While it was no less fulfilling, going to work one day, having a baby that night and "staying home" the next day (for good) was a transition that lasted 12 years.

When my first child turned 2, I had to admit that I felt like my high maintenance baby lifestyle was beginning to slacken a little. I finally went up for the first breath of air in 2 years and decided I needed a hobby. Having visited the Target Portrait Studio several months prior, it occurred to me I really enjoyed having regular photos, the portrait kind, to save for my daughter's keepsake book but I really couldn't stand the price for even the base package. I bought a camera, my first digital one, hung a white sheet, dressed up my daughter in her Christmas dress and managed to take several hundred images in a matter of a few minutes. I was hooked. I joined the vast sea of "Stay-at-Home" mothers doing just the same thing. Taking adorable digital photos of our children, and all for a fraction of the cost for Target photos.

Then, just like all those same mothers, "I Became a Photographer." I found that I was being asked to take pictures of friends, their kids and their families. Its funny looking back. I thought I was doing something original. Then I discovered that the digital photography movement was taking over like wildfire, all over the place. At one point in time, my small rural Iowa town of about 5000 probably sported close to 20 such hobby photographers. I was unimpeded by the competition, however and kept at it, trying to grow my little business. Until I made my first photo book. I looked forward to photo sessions but what I really enjoyed was the presentation of the portraits I took. Printing my beautiful portraits on the best products and in a way that told a story was what I looked forward to with each passing client.

After several years, the photo book won out and I switched modes from photographing to photography template design. I discovered Etsy that way. I set up shop with my photography templates and, somewhere along the way, needed to design a logo for a client for use with a template set. I added logo design to my array of templates and have found over the past five years that this puts me back in touch with clients again. Its a pleasure creating something from nothing with the aim of telling a story. In the process, I have helped clients understand their own business better. While I thoroughly enjoy the creative process, helping others is the best part of this affair.
