I'd love some feedback on my new business cards and 6x9 pricing card. To save time, instead of re-uploading and formatting everything, I'll just link you to this blog post with all of the images...

//prophotodiary.com/new-business-cards-and-6x9-pricing-card/

I'm not a professional designer, so any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you see any issues with wording, etc. I'd love feedback on that too!

Thanks.

Well considering you don't think you are a designer you did a really nice job. I found them very elegant and simply. You have just reminded me that is something that I need to do (design my card and get my butt out there). Love the child you chose. She is adorable. Using the different photos depending on your client is an excellent idea. Good Luck :)

all your stuff is more than good enough for you to be competitive.

however, KILL ANY SHOTS from a top-down perspective. that's the only shot the most camera owners take, the tops of their kids's heads. aside from running/marketing the business, the key to successful professional photography is to do things that others can't do for themselves...

I'm not sure I'd bother with a 2-sided business card, but if you do I think the design is OK, except that the last bit of contact info (FB, email, phone) are too small try to make it easy for people to contact you.

I'd make that type 2-3 points larger, and also upsize your name and website a bit if you think you need to balance out the other change. If it looks too wide at that point consider using a "condensed" version of your font, or scale it to 80-90% width.

The price/services card seems legible and informative enough; since I probably couldn't afford you right now I suspect your prices are about right ... :-)

I'm curious how you plan to print these, and in what quantities ...

Print through moo.com for the business cards. The pricing cards I may go a different route.

I see what you're saying about the top down shot. I have plenty others that aren't so I'll look at doing a switch. Thanks.

Love the simplicity of that first image, makes a great card and really puts the focus on the imagery. I'd call you a designer.

Your blog is very well written as well, I'm interested in finding out how you do.

And moo makes niiiiiiice cards; that's what I use when I can afford them.

First impression was Wow! Something bothered me about the photo on the back side of the business card, but I think others have covered it very well. I think the other thing that bothered me about that particular shot was that it seemed to emphasize her bare breasts.
Your prices seem to be a tad out of range of the average Joe, but if they wanted the shoot bad enough, they could choose to afford it, but not something they would just casually do. The model is absolutely adorable, and obviously interacting with you.
Very nice.
