If you’ve perused our website and landed on the “About” page then you have a slight notion what we’re about, but there’s more!
Dulce Vida Images is a small business, very small actually in the form of 2 people......Larry and I, Barbara, his wife. I’ve always wanted to start an online “side hustle”. I love details and all the logistics and moving parts involved. Larry......yeah, not so much. That’s not his cup of tea at all. So I proposed a compromise....he’ll make his art and I’ll do the logistics side of things which ultimately means I’ll be the voice. Deal. Let's do this!!
We dabbled in the idea of starting a website for years. In fact, we had one several years ago, but took it down because at that time there was coding involved and it was a much bigger challenge than I was prepared for or had time to give it. We made the hard choice to pull back, realizing it was not the right time.
Fast forward a couple of years and with our friends' encouragement we decided to try again. I don’t say that to brag, but they saw something special about Larry’s work and felt it has a place in the world.
Finally about a year ago and the universe connected us with the right people who introduced us to the wonderful word of Shopify. What a difference! That platform made it possible for us to share Larry’s work with you.
In a world where anyone can submit a photo online for quick printing, we feel there’s still a place for those who just want to hand the process off to someone they can trust. That personal touch. Someone who will follow it through the process and make it into exactly what they’re looking for while they go about living their busy life. All they have to do is wait for the final product to arrive.
I don’t know about you, but I’ll take all the help I can get these days. Make the decisions simple and help me out by doing the legwork. Wow! If only that happened more in my own life, I’d be thrilled.
So because that’s what’s important to us, that’s what we offer. The Golden Rule...in a matter of speaking.
And, just as importantly, we as a small business are supporting our local small business printer, which again, is something we feel very strongly about. Anyone can print via online sources, but there’s something to be said for having your photograph hand carried through the entire process until it arrives on your doorstep. Sadly, it’s a dying art these days.
Call me old fashioned, but there’s a lot to be said for that kind of personal attention. Kinda like writing handwritten letters or sending cards in the mail. (Yeah, I still do that too!)
