Early in my post-graduation dreams, I saw opening the doors to a lovely paperie, somewhere within a refurbished brick building, among a quaint downtown area. Shelves of colorful stacks, tactile stocks and funky envelopes. Labels, pens, washi tape... and then I realized just how many novelty notecards I would have to sell to cover the bills, let alone make a living, and that idea was, shall we say... shelved.

However, as my design and photography passions evolved into a sustainable career, my love of paper has never faded. In 2010, I launched the mini-calendar project as a way to create a meaningful gift for clients, and to satisfy my itch for custom paper goods. Now, a change in the professional winds for me has allowed me the opportunity revisit some of my self-initiated design goals, and with that, the Summer House Boutique is now open.

Currently available: Numbered, signed limited edition prints for framing; high quality notepads for list-making... and coming soon, photographic greeting cards for sharing. All, packaged for giving. 

For now, these designs feature images of my choosing - mostly nature or travel inspired. My goal is to release new designs each season, and to offer custom notes for those who are Summer House portrait clients. Photographic notepads are available in two sizes: 4x6.5" and 4x9", 50 sheets per pad.


Additionally, I have created a robust 100-page 8x8" pad to help keep you organized and inspired throughout your day. If you are like me, you live and die by your checklists. So, might as well do so in a beautiful, minimalistically-designed way. {*grin*}

If you would like a custom-designed notepad, please contact me - and look for updates {new products} to the boutique in the coming weeks!
