After seeing a demand for baby announcement designs here at The Whimsy Tree, I’ve decided to create a couple custom designs for the store. I will be offering design services to finish the card with your own images. For now here’s a sneak peak of some inspirations, including some great finds from local antique stores such as, vintage baby bonnets, books, luggage and an old watch spring tin. I love finding vintage goodies that inspire me in design and also for session props.

This family portrait session took place on the Yellow River Road property. The warm light in this session was just wonderful! It reminded me a bit of Rembrandt’s colors. The Banks family is one family I loved working with. They just happen to be my family but I really do think they are kind, down to earth people. I noticed a while ago that their children are the most well behaved kids ever. I’m told that not only are they good kids, but they’re really smart. Natalie, a natural around the camera, loves to read and is a bit shy, like me! Noah has always been in high ability classes, loves sports, and playing guitar with his dad. Whether its grocery shopping or traveling, the family loves to do things together. They even agreed to have a picnic with my mini homemade apple pies. I hope they’ll love these images as much as I do! Enjoy!

P.S. Keep an eye out for another blog post on a special little project we worked on with this family.

It really is gorgeous weather for a family portrait. Here is a little sneak peek of a session from this past weekend. More to come!

The perfect way to share a new birth is with a custom designed announcement. Malia was blessed to have two different newborn photography sessions with two different photographers. This allowed a plethora of images to choose from for her birth announcement cards. I love being able to work with other creative people and I think it made the cards so special to have two different perspectives. A 5×7 folded card was perfect for the amount of images and it was printed on a lovely pearl paper. The texture of the paper gave a slight sheen to the images that added a touch of girliness. I think this card was a delightful way of sharing the wonderful news and captured Malia beautifully. See Malia’s Newborn Session here.
