(Not yet born) Baby Adelaide


Baby Adelaide is coming soon, and her mom wanted some pictures of her in the belly.


Suzette's money picture.



That is real lens flare people. No fancy apps or instagram here.








They are good at making serious faces, but this picture is much more them.





Suzette always has cool outfits, even while pregnant it seems! I loves them.

A Baby for Cindy


I'm so excited for Cindy and her soon to be born baby, Arabelle.









Cupcake wrappers. I printed all these out for the baby shower, but you can see them better like this.


And some illustrations of some onesies I made. I was so busy getting the baby shower together that I forgot to take pictures of the real onesies, but they turned out great. I printed the designs on iron-on paper, then just followed the directions for ironing. (The second one down isn't my original idea--I saw a talk bubble on a onesie once and thought it was a cute idea.)
It seems as though everyone is having a baby these days!

My Little Kidlets


Alexandra is now 10, Liam is 3, and Luke and Jude are 17 months.

And for those of you that think you may be able to pull off a picture with kids these ages or close to it with just one photographer/adult, I have tricked you. This top photo was the only picture where three were looking (I never had one with all four looking) so I photoshopped Liam's head to a non-looking-away-graham-cracker-filled-open-mouthed head.

Minted Features


A few days ago Minted featured (on their Facebook page) a baby invite I designed that is for sale on their website. I love this design, but it is pretty bad quality from the screen shot I took. HERE is the invitation on their site.



And today I was featured in Minted's most recent email sent to anyone on their email list, along with the designers. It may have been because they needed to fill in that Utah/Idaho/Montana area on the map, but still awesome.
Also, I need a good headshot. That picture below was taken five years ago on a hot day after walking around a museum for several hours while visiting a friend and not having any of my normal hair products. But at least it is a picture where I'm not holding a kid! That is seriously why I use it as my profile picture.

Minted Art


Another piece I have for sale on Minted.com titled Aboriginal River.





It has a partner titled Aboriginal Rocks that wasn't chosen to be for sale. Too bad, they would look cool together on a wall.

Baby Grace


Little baby Grace is 3.5 months old and just a sweetie. Look at that bottom lip! I had fun taking her pictures and creating this baby announcement. Girly, but not too girly.

Triplets


My cousin had triplets about a week ago after 11 years of trying to have a baby. They were born early, 29 weeks, and are in the NICU. For the time that they were born, they are doing pretty well, but they still have a lot of hurdles to overcome. 

This is the baby shower invitation that I designed for her. Pretty simple, she wanted the triplets represented in some way so I came up with some cutesy animals. 



Here is her pregnant belly at about 24 weeks.



And a few shots from the baby shower. Her neighbor organized the shower. Everyone is extremely excited for her and tons of people helped.





These delicate eggs decorated the tables and were beautiful.



Aaaand, this is what the gift table looks like when you're having triplets. Can you tell by the wrappings that she is having all girls?

My Babies are One


My babies turned one in February. I took some pictures of them in these paper boy hats I found on clearance after Christmas at Target. It sort of worked. Trying to get two babies to sit still enough for a picture together with just one adult (me) to keep them in place is near impossible. Most of my pictures didn't work.

Example:



The individual pictures worked better. Here is my little Lukie. I could squeeze his cheeks and neck aaaalllll day. He is a super squishy baby. He loves loves loves to cuddle.
(I was given the bow tie--and a second coordinating polka dot one--by Veronica of Lolly Lu Designs. She sells them for just $6.95 on her Esty site and they are immaculately made.)




This is sweet little Jude. He is quite independent but has learned to say "hi" and loves to say it when a new person enters the room. He also recently learned to hug by putting his head on things he likes while saying "aaahhhhh." He has become really affectionate.



I was able to get a couple okay shots of them together. I don't know that face Luke is making.





I patched these two together. Luke kept playing with Jude's ear, it was hilarious. Jude didn't even seem to mind.

Close To My Heart Stamps


Close to my Heart makes scrapbooking products, and are mostly known for their unique acrylic stamps. They are clear and you attach the stamps to a handle you already have. I actually don't have any stamps myself, or I'd show you a picture of how this works. BUT, here are four different stamps I've designed for them. One day I'll get the stamps themselves!

The stamps with pink lines are stamps that also work with Cricut die-cut machines.











Baby Stella


My sister recently had a beautiful little girl. Meet baby Stella at 6 days old.

I love her fuzzy little fat little cheeks.




This is her at about 7 weeks old. Already growing up!
