• Baby #2 Wish List!

Baby #2 Wish List!


1.  Baby K’Tan Wrap-Heather Gray  |  I used the moby wrap last time, which I loved but this time around I would like something with a little more support and in a lighter color (I had black last time) so I don’t get so overheated wearing it!

2. Chicco Double Stroller | I am going to need this!

3. Aden + Anais Swaddling Cloths |  When Caleb was little I had a pack of these and we STILL use them (except, he pooped on a few so I feel like I can get some new ones for our new guy!) They were perfect for the hot summer days when I still wanted to wrap him up but didn’t want to get him overheated outdoors. I am loving the night skies pack this time around!

4. Cara Diaper Bag | Okay, so I don’t really need necessarily BUT I feel like there are just a few items it would be nice to splurge on.  Last time around I got a Kate Spade oversized purse and fully intended to use it as a diaper bag and quickly realized those pockets and pouches really are useful.  So with Caleb we have used a skip hop bag which has worked great but I would love to have something a little more stylish to carry around now that I will be packing for a newborn AND a toddler!

5. Freshly Picked Moccs | I love these and never made the splurge for Caleb, but maybe this time around baby boy will get a pair.

6. Baby Monitor | We have his one and love it, but we are going to have to add a second camera for the nursery now!

7. Nursing Cover | I never had a good nursing cover with Caleb, and I am definitely changing that this time! I love this blush pink one!

8. Fox Stuffed Animal | Baby #2’s nursery is going to be woodland themed, and Caleb picked out a stuffed animal fox for his baby brother already. It is a great starting point as I pick out bedding and decor!

9. Nipple Cream | Because breastfeeding, ouch.

Gatsby Inspired Winter Wedding | Jim & Laura Married


This Gatsby inspired wedding had me from the start. Michigan winters are hard, and sometimes pulling off a beautiful wedding in the midst of a long, bitter winter is risky. When I heard this bride was taking her event in a vintage art-deco direction I was so excited. And the details? Well, they make all Read The Full Post >>>

The Worst Blogging Advice I’ve Ever Gotten


With a quick google search, anyone can access more blogging advice than is humanly possible to sort through.  Talk about heaps upon heaps of conflicting advice out there in cyberspace– and if you are new to blogging it can be very confusing.  Instead of telling you the best practices for blogging, I am going to give Read The Full Post >>>

Fine Art Albums


After the wedding is over and the digital files and film scans have come back, my favorite thing is designing and sending out albums and prints to clients.  It has taken me so long to find the PERFECT albums… albums that reflect the same craftsmanship and care that I spend on every single photo.– – Read The Full Post >>>

To C-section or VBac?


When I found out I was pregnant for the second time, the first few weeks were filled with the same fear of miscarrying.  Honestly, I didn’t really think far past what was happening at the moment because making plans or getting excited only to have that taken away isn’t fun at all.  It was only Read The Full Post >>>
