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.

Look what arrived in the mail this week! I custom designed this mini accordion album to go along with this little one’s nursery. The colors just so happen to be pretty similar to my website colors, so I of course love them! You can see more images from the newborn session here.

 

 

 

Not once had there been such eyes,
Such a nose,
Such silly, wiggly, wonderful toes.

Meet baby Malachi! Isn’t he the sweetest?! I love photographing newborns. It’s the sort of thing requires a good amount of patience because newborns are best posed within a week of being born, full, and sleeping. With much time spent waiting for the baby to sleep, there’s lots of moments to reflect on all the little details of the newborn. Not having children myself, I’m told by so many that this stage just seems to fly by. I really enjoy capturing these fleeting moments. . .

 

 

 

My new business cards are consistent with The Whimsy Tree identity and you’ll see familiar elements from the website. Hand drawn illustrations by my hubby and I, with a slight vintage feel. These business cards were printed on watercolor paper and came just in time for the art show which is this coming Saturday. Click the link for more details.
