Custom New Mama Set – Patricia Bravo

Can I just say again how much I like Patricia Bravo? This NMS used Filigree Deco Plants in Teal and Goldsmiths Work in Fresh. I think it’s just beautiful. Hmm shoulda ironed the nursing cover before taking that picture… The lifesaving sling… Perfect for those early days… And the later days too! And no set […]

10 Month Photo Shoot

I have theĀ privilegeĀ of knowing many fantastic photographers. Recently, I attended a portrait party at the Children’s Sculpture Garden at Mueller and had the opportunity to get to know Heike Murphy, who truly has a fantastic eye for photographing children.

I didn’t fully foresee the way a child […]

sweet pod

I saw this carrier back in January, when Meg from Sew Liberated blogged about it. I thought it would be a great carrier to have if we wanted to go hiking. I mean, jogging strollers don’t really cut it for hiking. . . And the pocket sling that I love and adore? Not the best […]
