Baby Boy and Family

This Fall has been extremely busy with my kids -- school, sports, activities, etc.  Things have picked up in my Etsy shop too.  So to preserve my sanity, I've been cutting back on photo shoots.  But I just can't resist a newborn shoot -- no matter how busy life gets.  They are just too precious to pass up.  So here is a gorgeous baby boy and his gorgeous family :-)

This is Baby's big sister in their amazing front yard.  It's a photographer's paradise.  No grass at all, just flowers, and flowers, and more flowers.




And here's our first glimpse of Baby.  Just his sweet little mouth and a darling hand peeking out of his swaddling.


Some day, in another life, I will look this good in photos.  Isn't she stunning?


This has to be my favorite shot.  Look at that smile!  He looks so peaceful.


Again, stunning.



I love them.


Thank you for letting me spend this time with you in your home!

Birthday Invitations!

I've been having fun designing birthday invitations for my Etsy shop and thought I'd share a few:

This one is my personal favorite:

Dinosaur birthday party, 5x7 print-at-home invitation

I used my own dinosaur photos for it.  I couldn't resist the idea of dinosaurs in party hats!

Circus party invitation, 4x6 print-at-home -- also available in 5x7

SpongeBob inspired:

Water party invitation, 5x7 print-at-home

For your little chef:


All of the fun play food on this one is made by a friend of mine.  It's available for purchase at Nadia's Place (recently featured in a full page spread in Food Network Magazine!!).

And my latest:


Familiar?  What can I say?  I just thought this would work really well for a reptile party.  I used photos from the reptile party we threw for our oldest last year.  I especially like the tarantula -- on the card, not in my house :-)


Family

This is my beautiful sister and her family :)

Two beautiful babies

I had the opportunity to photograph these beautiful sisters a couple of weeks ago.  Spending an afternoon with two sleepy newborns was such a treat for me.  Thank you!

Newborn/product shoot

What could be better than a product shoot featuring overwhelmingly cute baby products AND and gorgeous new baby?

Nothing.  Nothing could possibly be better.


We let her have her binky.  It seemed only fair.  She was such an angel.








Thank you for sharing your baby with us Momma.  And thank you Nadia's Place and Polka Dots and Posies for the opportunity.

Best face from 2012

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.

Last minute gift ideas!

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:

First up:


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.  

Up next:


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.

Merry Christmas!!
