Welcome to CTB Creatives!
Please scroll down to see all that I have to offer!
First and foremost, I am a photographer - always have been, always will be. I specialize in lifestyle portraits, you know, families, maternity, newborn, headshots, engagement, etc, but I also LOVE fine art travel photography.
I am a digital artist. I have always craved being a painter but could never find the medium and tools that felt right...until Apple invented a pencil! Being a digital artist allows me the freedom to truly do what feels right in the moment without any restrictions. My work has a dualism to it that I feel mimics my personality. It is abstract and free with elements of control and realism. I sell small prints in the shop and one of a kind commissions. You can also wear my art on silk scarves and pocket squares!
I am a sketch artist. This is a new, but very exciting one for me. I had a friend approach me a few months ago and asked if I could sketch a photo of her husband and son for Father's Day. I told her I wasn't sure but I would give it a shot... turns out I could! I loved sketching so much that I ended up making one for all the men in my family. I truly love being able to create something so timeless and intimate.
I am a jewelry designer. Similar to digital art and graphic design, I have always wanted to design jewelry and am a jewelry junkie, but could never quite find exactly what I wanted - so I learned how to make it. Right now you will find custom beaded bracelets in my shop, but keep checking back as I have some exciting new styles and pieces coming soon!
I am a graphic designer. This is one that I fell into out of frustration. Constantly wanting very specific invitations, decor, or signage for an event but never finding exactly what I wanted so I took some classes online and figured out how to do it. I take a limited number of custom design projects a year for wedding suites, logos, party invites, and digital/print ads.
I am a candle maker. I started making candles a few years ago as Christmas presents for family and friends and fell in love with the process. Currently I am not selling individual candles in my shop, but am selling bulk custom orders (10 or more) on a case by case basis - perfect for gifts or favors!
Other things you will find here... Well, I have a blog. Still figuring it out and as of now it has a bunch of really random old posts, a few photo sessions, and some posts with things that I love. I am planning to post more of these "my favorite things" blogs soon. I really enjoy seeing things that other people like and I like to help spread the word for other companies (especially small businesses) that are doing it right!
