Waiting for baby...

Well, my first due date was March 1 - but I guess my "official due date" was March 6. Either way I am overdue and patiently awaiting the birth of my sweet baby girl. It is so hard to sit and think it could happen at any moment.

During my wait I'm taking a bit of time for myself. I'm finishing up a few projects in the studio and getting closer to finishing her nursery. The image below is a collage of some of the things in her room. The theme is birdies surrounded in soft pink and buttercup yellow. I just love the look of stylized birds... I love that my grandfather made birdhouses almost everyday... I love the sounds I hear of the birds that live in the bushes on the side of our house... So I concepted this design. My mother created the custom bedding, I painted a 20x40 canvas and made the mobile, Andy re-did the electrical and all the hard labor in the room. Overall I'm so pleased and can't wait to show it to baby G2!

Keep checking here for updates and baby photos. Let's all hope she comes real soon!!!

Special album offering for a 2009 couple

I offer many products and albums for my clients. Sometimes a couple will request a product that I don't have on my rate card. I am all about making my clients happy with images and albums that they will cherish as their first family heirloom and welcome any such requests.

When Tricia and Bob mentioned to me they wanted a traditional slip-in album I was a bit nervous. This was the type of album I received from my wedding photographer back in 2001. I was nervous because it was something I've never had to layout or order. You see, instead of designing an album with software and sending the files to a album book binder, the slip-in album needs to be constructed in a totally different way. Individual photographs are printed in various sizes, mats are ordered with different sized openings. Both are then hand assembled into a beautiful album that will definitely stand the test of time.

I am very proud of the way the album came together. I'm sure Tricia and Bob will be satisfied with their choice of a more traditional album for years to come!
