Memories by Andrea sent me the Willow print pictures below and it is just beautiful and of high quality. The prints can be ordered in 4 x 6 or 8 x 10 and she can also make greeting cards out of them.
I love the photos she takes of the old barns too. When I see photos like the old barns I just wonder what stories go with that old barn.
I ask Andrea some questions and this is what she had to say:
When did you open your Etsy shop? I am new to Etsy, and just opened my shop in March of this year. I have been doing photography for about 5 years, 3 of those years as a business.
How did you get started in photography? I started in photography by just taking pictures because I liked it. I had always liked pictures, but it really started when I was taking an art course in college and one project was to experiment with an art medium we were fairly unfamiliar with, so I chose photography. I got some nice pictures out of it and fell in love with taking pictures and framing them and having others admire them so I kept going until a couple years later someone asked me to do their wedding, and then another request for a maternity photo shoot, and from there I kept going and turned it into a business! :-)
What size prints can people order? Custom orders for different sizes or mediums for display are welcome (please inquire within for details). Any print you see can be ordered in standard 4x6 size ($7) or 8x10 size ($17) as well. Requests can be made for larger sizes, customers will need to inquire within for pricing according to their request.)
All images can also be made into greeting cards. Photos are mounted on white 5x7 sized cards with a black border and come with a 5 1/4 x 71/4 envelope. Prices for greeting cards are $3.75 each or 3 for $10.00.
What inspires you? I am inspired by many things, but I have a particular affinity for flowers and rural landscape scenery. When doing portraits, I love to capture people as they are and have the photo speak about who they are. My favourite is black and white for portraits... there is just something simple, and beautiful about that to me! :-)
