The Nursery

July 21, 2012
I promised many weeks ago that I would share pictures of Felicity’s nursery. I never imagined that that preview would come after her birth, but I do like to keep my promises. Here’s a wide look at the entire room. Pewter crib by Bratt Decor. I love that it looks vintage. Of course, Felicity has yet to spend a night in her crib. The bedding was custom made by a local seamstress. We found the fabric at a fabric outlet in town. I wanted something that was playful…but I didn’t want it to scream NURSERY or GIRL. Most of my college friends would have expected pinks and...
Felicity: 3 Weeks Old

July 20, 2012
It’s hard to believe that Felicity is already three weeks old…especially considering that she isn’t supposed to be here just yet. Today, we’re heading back to our pediatrician for a weight check and lactation consult. We’re hopeful that Felicity has finally reached her birth weight and that we can continue moving forward with exclusive breast feeding. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers if you would. Earlier this week, I met up with Sarah Halstead to take a few newborn photos of my baby girl. Sarah posted some of her favorite images from our session the other...
Tutorial Tuesday: Pop Art!

July 17, 2012
Welcome to Tutorial Tuesday! Sarah of Naptime Momtog and I will be bringing you a new challenge every week, to stretch your shooting and editing skills. This week, I am not quite as prepared as I’d like to be. Felicity has hit her two-week growth spurt and is cluster feeding…which means eating every hour…and I’m the 24/7 food bank. Not only is it a bit exhausting, it’s hard to get anything else done. Luckily, I asked Mama Monkey to prepare a tutorial for later in the month and she was so kind as to write a tutorial on creating POP ART on her blog earlier this...
Scavenger Hunt Sunday

July 15, 2012
Guess who’s back?! For those of you who might have missed it, on June 29th, I had a baby. Sarah Halstead quickly picked up for me while I adjusted to life with a newborn. I wasn’t sure how long I would be away, but I feel like I’m getting my groove back – rather, I’m learning how to operate in my new reality. I can’t promise that I’ll be back to a full blogging schedule anytime soon, but I would hate to be away from Scavenger Hunt Sunday for too long…to be sure I can take five photos each week, right?   Anyways, welcome back to the Scavenger...
