Grab your camera

When snow blankets the ground, it reflects a beautiful white light. It's like having a photographer's studio in every room! I quickly dressed Elise and set her on the white bed for an impromptu photo shoot. These aren't professional quality, of course, but they're better than my everyday mom-shots. I wanted something extra special to tuck in the grandmothers' Valentines.


(If you remember, I found this sweet little dress at Salvation Army last spring. Andrew wore his fancy outfit to his great-grandfather's funeral, then promptly outgrew it.)

She is just the most beautiful little girl. I love taking advantage of picture opportunities like these. When Emily gets over her cold, I am going to work on some photos over here too. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration, Meredith!!

Hi, long time lurker here. Just wanted to let you finally know just how much I enjoy your blog. Your daughter is quite possibly the most beautiful baby I've ever seen.

She is adorable. She reminds my of my sweet dd who also has red hair and these pictures (and the one of her cooking) brings back such wonderful memories of when she was a baby. Thanks for sharing. BTW, I've been lurking for a few weeks and I love your blog.
