The foundation of this website was built upon a single amateur photograph of a relative of the client. After viewing several photos presented by the client I settled on the one here. This photo just happened to be taken in the perfect composition and the subject very much reflected the essence of a healthy child. I masked the subject in photoshop, then applied a gaussian blur to a copy of the layer. This second layer was placed below the masked original with a gradient mask applied to create a fade to white.
Each flower was hand selected from a series of photos available through a photo collection, then masked, drop shadow applied and then resized to represent each section of the website.

A typical LAMP stack sat behind the website with a couple unique requirements. The eCommerce was handled through PayPal’s simplified cart, but a requirement to agree to a disclaimer prior to purchase meant that we needed to capture this information before allowing a product to be added to the cart. This agreement was captured with a session variable which was passed onto the cart and subsequently emailed to the client. The email was handled with a library that I had written to handle contact forms.
