Lucy was sooo sweet! And such a good girl for her session! She didn’t mind trying on all the bonnets, most of which I made and will be for sale this summer. She showed me her smile, her grumpy face, and her sleepy face. It was so nice to meet you Lucy!

This weekend I’ve been busy sewing for an upcoming newborn session in Three Oaks Michigan. I’ll be adding some of these pretties to the store this summer.

Today I was preparing to ship a cd of images out and had to capture another aspect of why I love my job. I think of it kind of like Christmas, and the experience of unwrapping a gift. You’ve invested in custom portraiture, and I believe every aspect of your experience should be delightful, and be a reflection of The Whimsy Tree! I love details!

When Asher had turned 6 months old, the family not only continued with his “grow with me” sessions, but thought it was the opportune time to also do some portraits for the whole family. The location we decided upon was a state park in North Liberty called Potato Creek. I hadn’t been there in years, but remembered it having a big lake and bike trails. It has a lot more to see than what I remembered, and turned out to be an awesome location. His adorable sister Braelyn was a big helper. It has been a blast to watch Asher grow. I’ve photographed him as a newborn, a 3 month old, and now 6 months. I’ll also be following him all the way to 12 months, so expect two more sessions with this growing family. If you’re interested in a “grow with me” package you can email me at elicia@thewhimsytree.com, or fill out the contact form on the bottom of the home page.

The family also wanted to announce some news… their having baby #3!
