I can’t believe that our first baby is celebrating his 5th birthday! Seems like yesterday that we brought him home as a little puppy and now his our big ‘little guy’! As is customary, Duddly got his special birthday cupcakes (all of his favorite fruits and veggies, bound with egg) with peanut butter icing! Happy Birthday Dudds – we just adore you!
I cannot believe how long it has been since my last post! I guess I have an excuse as I did have a baby! That’s right – I have been far away from my blog as we have been blessed with a little miracle of our own and I have been taking some time to stop and smell the roses (or delicious baby scent as the case may be)! We are taking a full year off from baby/maternity/family photography in order to give the little lady in our life the time that she deserves with her mom, but I have made my way back to the blog and would love to start posting all of the loveliness that 2012 had to offer before our little L arrived. So here is to new beginnings – this is what the last 5 months have looked like to me.
Rosanna is a very good friend of my sister’s and over the years I have come to know her well. We spent some time together when my sister got married as we were both in her wedding party. She is an amazingly friendly and genuine woman and her husband Joe is very much the same. I was so happy to hear that they were about to have their first baby and even happier to capture some images of them with their new little man in the first few weeks of his life.
Guess who made the cover of Dabble Magazine today? As always our nutty bulldog has charmed the pants off of the staff at this fabulous Design, Food and Travel magazine, enough to get him landed on the front page! It was more than a year ago that my husband and I went on a great trip to Cabo San Lucas and brought this hat back for Duddly, all with the intention of course to take a photo of him wearing it. The photo fit well with a Mexican Movie Night theme that they were working on and they asked to use the photos in their 8th issue. If you haven’t checked out Dabble, you really should! Nyla Free, my sister in law is a regular design contributor and gives some great tips on interior design to help you make your home look gorgeous. She is uber talented and one of the most amazing people I know! This issue indeed was a special one, because you can also see my gorgeous two nieces in this issue bouncing around in their mom’s stunningly designed space! Check out Dabble at www.dabblemag.com
