Arden Designs: Coastal Greeting Cards and Beach Photography

Long time Long Beach resident, Kristie Arden has transformed her love of Long Beach into a growing custom photography business. Arden Designs offers a line of coastal photography and beach inspired greeting cards. “I let the beach compose the pictures for me.” says Kristie, “Natural lighting is the perfect way to let any subject come to life. The early morning and sunset are my favorite times to shoot.”

Arden Designs’ greeting cards are all handmade. The front of each card is a 4×6 photograph; which can be framed.  These works of  ‘mailable’ art are available a The Coffee Nut Cafe (250 East Park Avenue), Earth Arts (162 West Park Avenue) and on her web site:

Arden Designs will proudly participate in Long Beach’s Arts in the Plaza this summer with a full line of handmade cards, prints and framed coastal creations of Long Beach. Arts in the Plaza begins on May 26th and will run every Saturday in front of City Hall.

  1. We love Kristie’s insight. We carry her cards in our store and we have several pieces of her art displayed at our home. She has an innate capability to capture the true essence of our home town with natural light. Genius!

  2. Kristie is an amazing photographer. I have been following her career and have seen amazing growth in the kinds of pictures she takes and the types of subjects she photographed. I love her work and treasure the pieces I have of hers.

  3. I love Kristie’s designs and the “one of a kind” feel that they lend to every occasion. The cards are as beautiful artistically as they are personal. They also make a great gift as framed art.

  4. Kristie’s art and photography is so amazing that we carry it in our (antique) shop, here on the Jersey shore. We are a co-op in the heart of Red Bank. Antique furniture, vintage, shabby chic, jewelry and home decor. Kristie’s amazing pieces of art and cards add life and character to our vignettes and displays. She has a great eye that translates well to any style.

  5. When I look at Kristie’s photography and artwork it makes me feel like I am part of her work of art. Her colors are so vibrant and beautiful. I have many pieces of her artwork in my home and I get such joy looking at them. I have purchased her items at Monmouth Street Emporium in Red Bank, NJ. They just make you feel good.
