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: ArdenDesigns.com

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.
