Couture Albums

I’m getting ready for an amazing newborn session today but I had to take a minute to write this post! I’m just so excited to be launching my Baby Couture Line. What is Baby Couture you ask? Baby Couture is my new premium line of custom baby albums designed to really personalize your Rainbow Eleven experience. I personally create a couture, fashion baby album for you based on your unique style and taste to design something that is truly special for your baby, and like nothing else you’ll see.

I’m so thrilled to offer such a unique, amazing high quality heirloom to my clients. Not only are Baby Couture Albums unique with the luxurious imprinted leathers, fabrics, silks and velvets we can offer but there is also premium photographic prints used during the binding process… Something that only Rainbow Eleven clients know about 🙂 You’d have to see it to believe how beautiful it is!!

The great thing about this to me is the ability to use so many different fabrics, leathers and textured materials in my custom design. I love being able to mix leathers with textures and do something creative and unique, something really personalized and special for your baby!

I love this design so much, I named it “Sabre” after the adorable newborn in the image. The leaves in this design are actually a raised velvet texture and there is a gorgeous strip of rich black leather down the middle. I LOVE the way it frames the image and creates this striking yet opulent look.

You can see the texture and the way the velvet leaves are raised here. Also the gorgeous quality of the spine. Such perfection!!

Look at the craftsmanship of this binding and spine. This is what a high quality album looks like! You can see the thickness and durability of the pages so the photographic print binds perfectly and seamlessly to the page. Baby Albums really do make me happy!

I think being based in Toronto means that I’m lucky enough to have so many amazing clients with so many different tastes and styles. Like for instance Makio’s parents, Funky music producers with an amazing sense of style. I always love to have my clients input and get a sense for what they are drawn to when creating my design. I love, love, love this texture and the way it plays off of the fresh lime colour of the baby sling. Sometimes my clients leave the creativity and design solely up to me and that’s so much fun too. This texture is so vibrant and so much fun. I named this style after the featured baby as well, I call this design “Makio”

I love doing the less than obvious when it comes to my Baby Couture designs. I love playing with negative space and doing the unexpected. Having a single image on a page allows your eye to enjoy the image with ease, it really is a beautiful thing isn’t it?

And don’t forget about the adorable details… They grow up way too fast, don’t they.

These handcrafted albums truly are a dream…

I just got these albums in late yesterday afternoon and wanted to share them with you all before they go to their new home 🙂 These are not Baby Couture they are our Premium Leather Albums in 10×14 and 10×10. Still uber gorgeous, and in luxurious leathers.

Thanks for taking a peak at some of the awesome options we have to create fine art pieces of your baby’s first photography experience. To me this is my craft and a work of art, my vision is not complete until I can present my clients with a luxurious album to hold on to their memories of this very special time. Can’t wait to photograph your baby or newborn soon!
