Note: The title of this post must be said to the tune of what would you do-oo-oo for a klondike bar :)
Ok, now that that is out of the way, what would you do with a storyboard? I offer these with all my sessions and there are some really cute and creative things you can do with them. Unfortunately I think a lot of people look at them and think "well that sure is pretty, but what am I going to do with it". Here are some ideas:
As a lover of all things girly, including ribbons, naturally my favorite thing to do with them is to have them mounted on foam board and hot glue a ribbon to the back of them and hang them on the wall. This is super cute because it can be custom tailored to suit your decor style. Lets say you want to do this with a story board of a little girl and her bedroom colors are pink and green, you can find a cute pink and green ribbon to glue to the back of your story board and viola! you've got custom artwork to hang in her bedroom. These also make great gifts for grandparents!
So maybe you aren't a ribbon person, no problem. Another one of my favorite things to do is keep it mounted on foam board and just display it using a plate stand. This can be hung on the wall, or displayed on a shelf somewhere. I think using the plate stand adds more dimension when decorating.
And lastly, they do make frames for size 10x20 so you could always go the traditional route and hang your storyboard in a frame.
*The photo above is an example of a recent storyboard I did for halloween which was then emailed out to my family. The storyboards you will see in your session have a neutral, black, or white background color unless you request otherwise.

Talk about a cute baby! Taylor is beautiful and I think she's wise beyond her years, or month I should say, because it seems she knew I was in need of a challenge which is why she refused to let mom or dad put her down for some photos. We did the entire sessions while her parents held her :) Oh, and I am officially obsessed with black and white, just to be clear to any of my future clients reading this, I do offer all my photos in color also.

Nos is a friend of my husband, a Marine, a fellow photographer, and a little bit of a local celebrity. He takes amazingly creative photos that have been featured on the local news and in a few galleries in Palm Springs. Here is a link to his flickr photostream http://www.flickr.com/photos/aheram/

Michelle wanted to try her hand in the modeling industry and I helped her out by being the first photographer to work with her so she could build her portfolio. While I will admit, I am not a fashion photographer by any means, it does help the model to work with a portrait photographer first to get comfortable in front of the camera. Michelle actually became a really popular model out here and only a few months after photographing her I saw a professional photo of her in a local magazine! P.S. The top photo really reminds me of Dorothy from Wizard of Oz, maybe it's the colors.

If you follow my blog, you'll notice that I love photographing couples. Andrew and Christine booked with me to have their engagement photos done before they moved to Hawaii (where Andrew is being stationed) after the wedding. I know, how lucky is that? They get to have their wedding and then go on a 3 year long honeymoon!
