Tutorial Tuesday

July 24, 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, Sarah is exploring an idea she found on Pinterest and applying it towards her anniversary. My anniversary isn’t until October, but I think you could apply it towards just about anything. I remember when Elena did something similar with her childhood photos: click HERE. I have a few photos from my childhood that I’d love to recreate with Felicity…I mean, she’s already wearing my baby clothes so why...
Scavenger Hunt Sunday

July 22, 2012
Other than going to the pediatrician, I don’t think I’ve left the house this week. Hmmm, I’ll have to change that this coming week…even if it’s just to walk around Target. Although, the visit to our pediatrician was worth a trip out of the house.

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...
