I love Myles' nursery, loved putting it together.  Started with choosing colours - we didn't know we were having a boy so it was gender neutral.  After the colours were picked I showed my Mom and she picked out some amazing fabric and made him the most beautiful quilt! And pillow cases.  And sheets.  She is the BEST and that is my favourite part of the room. Next was finding a wall decal (okay, these come in right behind the quilt for my faves) and I ended up getting these birds custom made from a seller on Etsy. All the furniture came from Maddy's room since we upgraded her to her big girl bed.  Everything else was added as we went along.  Here's a peek into his cozy room.

Project 10 - December

Every month on the 10th a group of photographers I have met post 10 of our favourite photos of the month to our blog.  This month there is only me and one other fantastic photographer - you can get the link to Leah's blog at the bottom of this post!

This month I'm sharing 10 photos from our first few weeks home with our brand new baby boy and also 10 fun facts about little Myles.

1.  We didn't know he was a boy  (surprise!) and he was born November 19.

2.  Myles' middle name is Benjamin (my maiden name is Benjamins).

3.  Our niece chose the name 'Rocketship' for our baby when I was still pregnant so our entire family called him Rocketship for months and months.

4.   Myles is my Oma's 90th great grand child.  Yes, you read that right.

5.  It was -19 Celsius the day we took him home.

6.  I am from Ontario and have family staying with me for 2 and half weeks - amazing.  I haven't done laundry or cleaned my house (yet it's always clean) - a BIG thanks to my Mom, Dad and Sister! xoxo

7.   He loves to be held.  All the time.  So I hold him. 

8.  I

9.  Am

10. Tired.

The last picture keeps me going.  :)

Kristin's Maternity Photos

I thought I would blog these images taken by my husband - he did so great! I really didn't want to have pictures taken but so glad we did it.  I'm just so happy to have some pictures with my sweet Madden - makes me incredibly happy!  It's so different being on the other side of the camera but a good reminder of how my clients feel at photo sessions!

Project 10: October

I had a different set of pictures in mind for this month's Project 10 (10 pictures posted on the 10th) blog circle.  But then I went in to Maddy's room yesterday after her nap and she was standing on her bed with just the little bit of light coming in and I couldn't resist snapping up a few shots.  Quiet moments - dramatic lighting.  I just love these.  As usual with this Project you will find a link to the next photographer in the circle - click through and follow along!

Project 10 : September

I had my camera ready for the morning to follow Maddy around and try to capture a morning with her.  I am posting as part of this month's Project 10 where a group of photographers post 10 favourite images of the month.  At the bottom of this post you can click a link to go to the next person's post this month.  It was really REALLY hard to just pick 10 from this morning.  

I would love to capture what your morning looks like.  Think a Saturday morning session - PJ's - breakfast...etc.

And just for fun, another animated treat - how she often says no to me - by whipping her head back and forth.

Dress & Lensbaby Love

I dressed up Madden in a cute white dress last night for an impromptu photo session to try out the new Lensbaby I bought.  This was the first night I really got to play around with it (Lensbaby Composer with Sweet 35 Optic).  There is definitely a learning curve and it can be hard to get the focus while chasing around a toddler but I love the result! I can't wait to play some more.

Project 10: August

I have joined a circle of wonderful photographers that are all connected because at some point we have taken a Jellybean Pictures workshop or mentorship.  What this means is that on the 10th of every month we will post 10 pictures - it can be a day in the life, a theme, or our 10 favourite pictures of the month.  Each of us will post a link to the next photographers blog post on their Project 10 - click through and check out the whole group!

Here's my first post - capturing all things summer - how we spent our August long weekend - camping at the river with some really great friends.  Why is summer going by so fast?!
