Baby Camryn

3 Mar

This family welcomed a baby girl into the world a week ago.  The 5 of them came into the toasty studio and I got to wrap this tiny sweet in some of my fun new fabrics that came in this week (floral wrap and fabric from cloth apothecary, dusty rose chunky knit made by meeeeee)! Enjoy this little preview, and congratulations to this lovely family.

Season’s greetings Everyone!  I hope the holidays have been treating you all well.  I know this has been a special Christmas for several families who have welcomed a December-baby including this sweet couple.

Did Santa get Makayla and Robbie naps for Christmas? Or maybe a solid 4-5 hours of sleep? That’s what I got for the twins’ first Christmas and, I mean, apart from being blessed with healthy twinnies, sleep was like a gift from the Gods.

Wishing this couple all the best!!

There’s a new baby in the family, giving my daughters a new cousin to eventually dress up and play with.  We joked (not really joked) that in 5 short years auntie and uncle would have a set of babysitters available for whenever! (where can I get one of those for Friday nights?)

I don’t get to see these guys too often so it was nice to have them in the studio.

Ice Day!

26 Apr

Blizzards, snowfall, and storms aren’t uncommon for Aprils in Thunder Bay.  City closure due to weather is pretty uncommon as well, but an ice storm has given us a day off school and work today!

The girls and I started our day with peanut butter banana smoothies and yoga. We did lots of playing and painting, planted seeds to start our garden, and just after lunch we decided to go outside.  We smashed tons of ice off the car and other surfaces outside; a surprising inch or so thick in lots of places!


When the wind got to be too much we came in to watch a show but the power went out!

I had an idea to keep us entertained, something I’ve wanted to do since the lightpainting workshop at Neechee: Experimenting with portable light in the studio.  Flashlights, sparklers, strobes, etc.

Now, it’s hard as heck to get the girls be still and follow my directions – they want to do their own posing and follow their ideas, but I let them run the show and still got fun results!


Once in a while a school closure is such a treat – a surprise sleep in annnnnd a day with the kids.  Good attitudes all ’round at this house.

This session was so relaxing and gentle.  It was nice to meet this family and have a furry friend in the studio too!

Steph and Rich’s twins came home from the hospital recently and these little tinies got to come get snuggly in my studio.
