Just have to share, I'm really excited about this... I've been on this RedBubble site for a while, posting photos and stuff, and recently I created and ordered a calendar of some of my floral photos. It just arrived today, and I am seriously SO excited that MY photos are in this big, gorgeous, professionally-printed, high-quality calendar! I know, it's all my work and probably no one else will ever order it, but there is something so exciting and rewarding about seeing your work printed up just like a pro's.
I know most of you ladies are superbly talented and some of you have been real pros for a long time, so you may be used to seeing your work done up in a professional way (large prints, on canvas, etc.), but this is kind of a first for me. It sure is a fun feeling! Makes me want to just keep shooting and get better and have a ton more stuff to be proud of!

i hear ya! One of my earlier sessions was a freebie session for a girl at church with 2 small kids. The shots turned out great and she ordered a bunch of them. She replaced the other pro ones in her house with mine and gets compliments on them all the time And i ordered a photo book to use as an on the go portfolio so it make me feel like a pro. I know i'm not...but it's nice to have work worth printing right? Congrats on feeling like you've arrived...we all have in our own way!
It felt neat to me like that when I ordered a canvas of one of my tiger photos to hang in Eva's room and when I got cards made for a friend with one of my ocean sunsets on them. And my 12x12" yearly hardcover nature books--those are always so exciting!
This fall/winter I'll be printing calendars of my nature photos for 2 friends so I am excited to see those too!

I can only imagine! I actually saw some of my work on my friend's wall and it made me smile. You work is great and I am glad you finally got a good feeling out of it. I sometimes wonder why I do this b/c I don't see the end product printed, but it's so nice to capture those moments/things.
