Carla Coots-Rodriguez - Insight Photo
I have always been involved in, and interested in the arts. I grew up in a family of artists, craftsman, creators. I’ve taken pictures since childhood, and as an adult used 35mm cameras until 2006, when I started using Canon Digital SLRs. In High School my majors were Art and English. When I graduated from High School, in keeping with family tradition, I went into teaching. I have a Masters in Education from San Jose State University, San Jose, Ca. In the beginning of my career I taught general education students. For the past 20 plus years I have taught special education students, currently students with Autistic Spectrum disorders. My students are predominately visual learners, and I have had to create work systems, curriculum and materials that address their visual learning style. This has informed my photography as well. I enjoy photographing weddings, other events, portraits and my own personal subjects. I feel honored to photograph weddings and other special events, and be given the opportunity to participate in and document these milestones in people’s lives. I have taken classes, read about photography and the arts, attend and participate in openings and exhibits and take photographs often and anywhere.

Custom-Illustrated Party Decorations by Amy Colburn
Have you ever found yourself in the middle of the party decoration aisle in a big-box party store and thought to yourself, "Is this all I have to choose from? I wish I could just custom-design my own decorations." Well, you can!
Custom-designed and illustrated party decorations created by Amy Colburn are now available exclusively through Talulah's Fancy & Friends.
Hostesses and planners typically plan a gathering around a theme, and also a color pallette. These are the inspirations for your custom decorations! A full-color illustration is created in any image or design that you prefer, and then decorations are printed and hand-crafted specifically for your event.
These photos depict some examples that were custom-created for the Talulah's Fancy & Friends Mad Hatter's Tea.
A welcome banner greets guests and sets the tone for the party! It can also give your guests a terrific backdrop for photo-ops. Banners are created from sturdy artist canvas with coordinating fabric, tassles, or other embellishments to fit the theme. The banner is hand-painted by the artist using acrylics, and hangs from a dowel. Prices start at $200. Visit the Gift Shop to see a sample.
Paper tags, garlands, and favors can all be created from a custom illustration created for you by Amy. Ideas include:
- Food flags ~ on skewers or toothpicks
- name tags
- bunting-style garland
- flower arrangement sticks
Pricing varies on quantities; minimum order of $300. Please call Tamara at (585) 734-5683 to make an appointment, discuss ideas, and gather a quote.
