Brand new sample albums and proof box

I'm so excited about these new sample albums!

The first is an English line Couture Book that I designed to be very unique and complement Melissa and Brett's wedding. I'm over the moon with how it turned out! The pink flocking on the cover is so soft, the inside endpapers have a little shiny detail to them, the papers are creamy, and the cool black velvet sheath is awesome. This is from the newest line of albums that I carry, and I absolutely love it!

This album measures 10x13", which gives it a nice, big feel, but it's also available in 8x10", 6x9", and some other nice sizes.

Click here if you'd like to see the full design layout.

Next is the design I made for Nestldown from Rachel and Giancarlo's beautiful wedding - another Couture Book, this time from the Japanese line. I have so much fun designing these and absolutely adore the job my bookmakers do with the finished product! This is also a 10x13" book.

For that design, click here.

Finally, a brand new product, the Proof Box. I had this sample made from my favorite shots from the Style Me Pretty Inspiration to Reality shoot this winter, and I know it's going to be a client favorite!

Just contact me if you're interested in ordering or learning more about any of these products.

Nestldown, Los Gatos

These photos are actually from last February, believe it or not! From a site visit I did at the amazing site, Nestldown, in preparation for shooting Rachel and Giancarlo's lovely June wedding there. With all of the busy-ness and excitement of the last year, I never had a chance to properly edit them, but since I just sent a sample album (more on that soon) to Nestldown, I thought it would be a nice time to revisit the photos. And I'm happy I did, there are some lovely lovely things at this place!

I can't wait to work there again!

Just a few shots of a beautiful orchid my grandmother gave to us a few months ago. She gave us the root thingy (as you can see, I know nothing about orchids!) and Devon put it under our bitty skylight in the kitchen. It grew and grew and grew, and finally we have blossoms!

Probably a metaphor in there somewhere, but mostly I'm just glad it bloomed.

Pregnancy photos - 30 weeks and 33 weeks (!) and counting...

Whoa, mama!

Yes, that is me. Huge, huge me. The pregnancy is still going very well (I am so lucky and grateful!) but I am not exactly my normal spry self. So far that hasn't stopped me from doing some rad photos shoots, but I do occasionally have to hold myself back from trying to balance on a funky crumbling wall or ledge for the shot... Otherwise, baby is wiggly, mama is feeling good, and everyone continues to grow!

These are from a few weeks ago (about 30 weeks and pouring rain:

And this weekend (33 weeks and super sunny outside!):

Here I am with all of my Valentines:

And just my human ones:

Me and little Frank and our garden:

And with the blanket I knitted the baby:

Devon and Franklin are cute little dudes:

And, okay, I don't normally put up photos of anyone in their skivvies on my blog, but I love this shot. This radish was planted last summer, and has been growing way out of control for months. For awhile the baby and radish were growing at the same rate, but now one is way huger (and also much cuter, I'm hoping):

Have a great weekend! Photos of people other than me coming next week : )
