Several months ago I was contacted by someone in Tennessee to design a birth announcement.  By communicating via email and looking at images of the babies nursery, I was able to come up with a design that the client loved. Her photographer, Brandy Jaggers did an amazing job with the newborn photography, and the whole design came together perfectly. The bamboo paper gave a soft luxurious feel to the card, and we turned the orientation of the accordion card to better fit the images. I love how they turned out, and was glad for the opportunity to create something special for the new addition to the family.

I’m photographing a session in a blooming orchard this week and thought I had better practice keeping my composure around bees. Whenever apple blossoms are near I can’t help but lean in and drink the scent. It’s amazing. I decided to do a bit of macro photography on those heavy blossom laden branches, and had to share space with some very busy bees. They didn’t mind me too much, and I suppose I didn’t mind them too much. Eeeks!

I can’t help but share these blooms with you since today is officially spring! These peach tree blossoms make me think of freckles…


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.
