Oh my goodness, it has been over a week since I have blogged. Shame on me. My only excuse is renovations, baby, work, life, etc… Not good enough I know. My promise to you is more frequent blogging and renovations updates weekly. The dumpster arrives tomorrow so the big time begins. Just when I felt overwhelmed and wondering what I am doing trying to juggle all this I get a great little piece of press. Well Erin Gates, with whom I am so lucky to have a great friendship and working relationship, got interviewed by CNN.com and they used some of my photographs in the article. The article is all about finding décor inspiration in your closet, and the gorgeous pink, black and white apartment I photographed with her is a perfect example. Pop over to CNN.com to check out the whole article. Here are some of my images.

I am spending Valentine’s day in lovely Sea Island, GA. The hubby is away in California for the week and bébé and I hopped the first flight out of snowy Boston to the Georgia low country. If I can’t spend Valentine’s day with my husband what better way to spend it than with my mom and dad (and grandma and grandpa). The air is humid and rejuvenating. And my mother has the house sprinkled with white hydrangea and pink roses. We are having a sweet sweet Valentine’s Day. I hope you are too.

Well I seem to have fixed the design problem on my blog only to open my suit case and find this…arg! I know I know, so stupid to put my laptop in my checked luggage but I was flying with bébé by myself and couldnt manage all that carry on. Plus it was in a hard sided suitcase. Ugh. (The baby and I have run away to Sea Island, GA to be with my parents while the hubs is out in California for the week.). Deep breaths. Deep breaths.

It seems my custom blog design has expired and with all my travels, baby birthday and blizzard preparations I have let it slip through the cracks. Please bear with me.

I am sitting in the Las Vegas airport, waiting to board my after a whirlwind work trip. I am rushing back to my husband and baby in time for her first birthday, which is tomorrow! I can hardly believe that a year ago at this time I was in labor, working hard to get baby girl here. It has been the most exciting, wonderful year of my life. But I won’t get too deep on how fast they grow up and how emotional it all is. Instead I will just leave you with a few photos from my travel.
Oh and I think I left my wordpress custom design expire. Working on the issue now…sorry for the old design.

Late last night, as I was perusing my Pintrest boards, I caught sight of a fabulous photograph of a child. We are not talking the Christmas card family photography with which we are all familiar, but a cool, editorial style fashion image. It lead me to my new obsession…the blog Smudgetikka. The site is penned by Linda McLean, fashion director at Junior Magazine, a UK based publication. She blogs about her job, location scouting and all the great editorials she sees for children’s fashion. (What is it about Europeans and great children’s clothing?!?! No cartoon characters and silly princess crap, just darling, age appropriate clothes.)
This now has my mind churning with ideas for a children’s fashion shoot. I adore working with my fashion clients and would love to bring that look to a children’s shoot.
Here are some editorials pulled from Smudgetikka blog.
And the princess in armor of this one by Emma Tunbridg.
I love all of them so much! Now excuse my while I go dress up my daughter in a Celtic warrior suit of arms and go photograph her by the water on a cloudy blustery day.

This weekend the hubs and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary with a little staycation at a lovely old Boston hotel. The in-laws offered to stay over with bébé and we had our first night away together without her! It was wonderful. My weekend was also bookended with some Boston fashion week events on Friday and Sunday night. Here are some iPhone and Instagram pics of the weekend. More on the actual shows later.
Press pass, and in the photographers pit for the Sam Mendoza show. So official.
Serious photographers a work! (Taken by my friend in the front row, Liana.)
Me being super blasé about the whole thing.
Saturday we checked into the historic old Taj hotel (use to be the old Boston Ritz) for a little in town get away. We were away from bébé for the first night together, but could practically see our apartment windows from the hotel room. Haha. Baby steps.
Beacon Hill on that rainy Saturday morning
Champagne that night in the old hotel bar.
Sunday morning was sleeping in, room service and the paper. So lovely and quiet.
Sunday evening (after blissful reunion with bébé), I strapped on my heels and headed out for another Boston fashion week show. This time it was the ethereal Emily Muller.
Seat mate, Soonha Lee and I compare shoes.
Jessica Sutton and I smile for Soonha’s iPhone.
Fashion shows, fancy hotels, champagne and room service…it is a tough life, but somebody has to do it. Glad that somebody is me!
