I recently got the itch to try my hand at some product photography. It's been so long since I have had a chance to be behind my camera regularly, and I wanted to try something new. Since all of the custom crochet pieces I've been making have been going to the post office as soon as I've finished them, I decided to ask a dear friend of mine to borrow some of her things.
My friend Angie is the power behind Isabel Lee Designs, and she makes a TON of amazingly super cute embroidered things, including scarves, dresses, stuffed animals, stockings, and now THESE!
They're called headband slides, and they slip super easily onto these sweet, silky headbands. How ingenious are these?
Stocking stuffers, anyone?
I know, I have a boy, but I have several nieces, and these would be the most amazing presents for them! Especially since they're little and already have plenty of toys (and there's no small pieces, haha!).
And get this - she can even make matching custom sliders doll-sized, so your princess and her princess can match! ^_^
A slide and headband set is $8, with additional slides for only $5! Doll sets are $6, with additional slides for $4. Just hit her up on her Facebook page for your custom order!
Want to know how awesome Angie is? She's offered to sponsor a giveaway here on the blog! One person will win a headband and slide set! Check out below how to enter :) The giveaway will be open for entries through Sunday, December 7th, at midnight. Winner will be announced and contacted Monday, December 8th. Good luck, friends!
Less than a year ago, I moved to Eastern Kentucky to be with my family. I have been overwhelmingly blessed with so many great friends; Kimberly, her husband Joe, and their son Gage are no exception. A few weeks ago, I was able to document a bit of Kimberly and Gage's breastfeeding journey. I was so excited when they asked me to capture another special moment: the Gender Reveal of #2!
Kimberly's mom got the balloons and we all met at the local park. Lots of smiles, laughs, and a few tears quickly followed!
Super (big) Bro Gage loved the box!
Grandma gave him a flower...
Aaaaaaand he decided to eat it!
These two... <3333 staaaaahp!
Super Bro enjoying the park!
Congratulations again, my friends <3 I can't wait to meet baby Samuel!
August was National Breastfeeding Month. Those that are close to me know that breastfeeding is very important to me, and I'm blessed to be a part of a community that holds it in a high respect, and is also very supportive in helping mamas new to breastfeeding.
One of those ladies is a very dear friend of mine, Kimberly. She has been breastfeeding her son Gage, now 17 months, and is a huge inspiration to me. She confided in me that this special relationship is starting to come to a close, so I suggested a photo shoot to commemorate their journey. Joe came along for the ride, so we were able to get a few family shots, too!
It's been years since I've had the chance to really get behind the camera like this, so it was extra-special for everyone. Photography is one of my biggest passions, and I had to put it down for quite a while to finish school, deal with some major life changes, and my own pregnancy and birth of my son. I'm so excited to be jumping back into the game with my camera!
Now, without further adieu, the photos!
High-flying baby! Thank you guys, again, for allowing me to capture such special moments. I love you all, and I can't wait for our next very special shoot! :D
