Featured Artist: Danielle Flanders
Dani Home Spun with Heart I am a certified K-8 teacher turned stay-at-home-mom with 2 beautiful girls and live near Albany, NY with my husband of 10 years! Creating things has always been my passion since I can remember! Scrapbooking and cardmaking were introduced to me when my first daughter was born 9 years ago. Since then I have really flourished and adore trying new techniques! I enjoy creating scrapbooks for my daughters and want them to know how we feel about being parents, how much they are cherished, and create something memorable for them to keep forever. But the process is what I really enjoy the most! I feel my style is girly, artsy, creative and a bit of shabby chic thrown in for good measure! Current Design Teams

  • Portrait photography can be one of the more challenging aspects of photography; capturing a photo that appears natural and conveys the subject's personality is a skill that takes practice. The good news is you don't need any fancy equipment to snap great portraits, because portrait photography is about capturing a sense of a person's character, rather than producing technically perfect compositions. These tips will help you move beyond simple 'snapshots' to taking some truly engaging portrait photos.
