The contest theme at I Heart Faces is "Best Face from 2012." I have so many that I love from last year, both clients and my own family. But when I came across this one of my baby I knew it would be my entry. I love the face, and the memory.
I've been working on some special Valentines for my etsy so I thought I'd show off a few. Be sure to pop over if you like what you see here! www.etsy.com/shop/melindabryantphoto (Actual size is 2.5x3.5 -- with the exception of the first one, which is 2.25x3.25 - the size of a box of Sweethearts conversation hearts)
I don't know about you, but I still have a bunch of people on my list to buy for. So in the spirit of last-minute giving, I thought I'd feature a few of the fabulous last-minute items available at etsy.com:
Hello! Who wouldn't want to receive a box of delectable sandwich cookies in the mail, every month FOR A YEAR!! I DO!! Check out Tookies -- it'll make your mouth water.
Beautiful, beautiful personalized prints. I have to admit, in light of recent events, this one made me cry.
Not only can you buy her lovely prints and have them shipped to you, there is also the last minute option of printing it yourself! You can purchase a .jpg file to print on archival paper at home or at a print shop. Available at Words Work Prints.
This next one appeals to the photographer in me:
These are print-at-home onesie stickers for those cute pictures that document baby's first year. There are so many cute designs to choose from! She sends the pdf file and you print them on sticker paper OR you can print them on iron-on transfer paper (you have to flip them around though, so they will face the right way when you transfer to the onesie). I'm thinking a stack of onesies with these cute things ironed on would be the perfect gift for an expectant mother! Available at MyGraphicChic.
Top off your super cute baby gift with these:
Well, a gift certificate for these. But aren't they cute! Those pictures would be even cuter with a little hat to match the adorable onesie. But really, everything in this store is so, so sweet. I love it. Go check out Organic Quilt Company.
And of course don't forget that I have last minute gifts too! Super cute gift tags are available until the 22nd -- maybe even the 23rd.
(shown much larger than actual size of 2.5x3.5") Check out all of the designs at Melinda Bryant Photo.
The wedding was gorgeous, as was the bride. The reception was fabulous. But the thing I can't get over is the send-off:
Shall we back up a bit and see what else happened? Our story begins at the Draper, Utah LDS Temple:
The reception was at a beautiful, mountainside home with the most amazing views of the mountains and the valley that I have ever seen (we shot the bridals there a few weeks ago). It was stunning. But, uh, this is a view of the cake:
There was a fire about thirty miles away that added some mystique to the sunset :)
These two little cousins danced together all night:
This looks painful doesn't it? I snapped this the THIRD time he did it:
