The end of the year is a natural time for reflection, for assessing where we’ve been and look onward to where we’re going. This has been a full year for us—both personally and professionally—with many new developments and significant milestones. Getting to craft a photographic representation of another’s reflection on the year has been a fun challenge for two years running with local couple Paige and Erik. They connected with the style of our photo composites and last year approached us to recreate Erik’s mountain biking accident, which was the cause of many pains and challenges for them in 2013. This was their resulting holiday card last year:
For 2014, Paige and Erik wanted to do another photo composite, this time finding a silver lining to another year that was fraught with challenges. The resulting photo was a fun and playful composition, utilizing a lot of lemons (though not as many as you’d think). Last year’s photo, in the form of an enlarged print on metal, made a cameo appearance.
Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season and a very happy New Year. For us at Rogue Heart Media, we are very excited that 2015 will be our best one yet! See you in the new year!
UPDATE: The photo got a fantastic response from Paige’s network of clients and followers. This is what Paige had to say about it:
“The response was huge. It was epic. Everyone tells me it’s the best holiday card they get, and some people leave them up all year. This year, people started contacting me in May asking about the new Christmas card. I want to do a photo with Rogue Heart every year, to have it represent the year and have the same surreal style. My clients are like family, and the fact that I include my family in the photos brings me even closer to my clients. The photo gave them a laugh, and it brought a personal touch around the holidays and helped to build those relationships. My clients loved it, absolutely loved it! The expectation is growing, so we’re going to have to go bigger each year. We’re going to have to keep getting creative. Everyone looks forward to it each year. It’s inspired a lot of my clients: it’s known as The Super Hero Photo. I want to start a Rogue Heart fan club. I love you guys!”
