The Ofelia blanket

I so want this blanket

The texture is gorgeous, it's nice and stretchy, and it's even machine washable. That's a must when it comes to newborn photography.

Well, this little gem comes from IKEA. My problem is, I don't have an IKEA round these parts and I can't order from their site. Lame. It's almost 2010 right? Anyways...if anyone out there has an IKEA near your home that you're itchin to visit and you feel like doing a very good deed for someone, please email me or leave me a message in my comments section. I would love it! Thanks so much. Here is a link to the blanket. CLICK It's really sad that I'm not above begging.

UPDATE: I'm so happy I was able to find someone willing to get one and send it to me. Thank you so much for picking one up for me Jessica!!!!!!!!

Beautiful Miss Maisa : Boise Idaho newborn photographer

This was one feisty 1 week old. I'm so glad she finally settled in enough to let me pose her because wow, what a beauty she is. I must admit, a little thrill ran through me when her mom got her out of her carseat and I saw what a doll she was.

She has such long eyelashes for such a new baby. I love it.

Blanket made with love by Grandma. Lucky little girl.

A fun outing

A few weeks ago I went out with some great photog friends, Audrey and Alison, to a really fun new location that we heard about from Melissa Niu. I liked it there so much that I decided we'd take our family pictures there too. I didn't get much of Lily that night. She's not too cooperative when it comes to pictures at the moment so I just let her play with Abbey. I was happy I was able to get a few of me and Stella though. She's growing up way way too fast. Thanks for the fun evening girls!

Take a look...

Leah is a super talented designer who asked to borrow some images I'd taken of these little boys for her organic baby album templates. Every page turned out so beautifully. Click here to check them out.

My new favorite lens

The Canon 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS lens came a couple days ago and I'm loving it. It's supposed to be my Christmas present but there is absolutely no way I could wait another 2 months to play with this toy. I'm sure I'll wrap it up and put in under the tree on Christmas Eve so the kids don't wonder why Santa didn't bring me anything this year.

I love love love the shallow depth of field it gives on close-ups.

In honor of Halloween I trapped a really hairy, creep, yucky spider in a jar and snapped this little gem.

And no, I didn't have the heart to squish him after looking into all four of his eyes. He almost seemed to have a personality, ya know? After debating over what I should do with him for an hour or so, I finally let him go in the front far from the house as possible of course.

Bo's eye.

Right about now I wish I'd taken the effort to plant some flowers in the yard this year. But I didn't so I had to make do with what we've got. Kinda boring though, I know.

I really have no clue what I'm doing with macro photography yet, but I'm having so much fun trying to figure it out.
