Hello, and welcome to my blog. I'm a natural light photographer living in the Boise, Idaho area with my husband and 5 kids. I enjoy capturing images of all kinds, but I am truly in love with photographing newborn babies. The first days of life are precious and magical and so very fleeting. Feel free to email me with any questions you may have at Thank you for visiting my little corner of the web :)

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!!!!!!!!

You are in luck! :) I am actually heading to IKEA tomorrow while my son is in preschool! I would be more than happy to grab it for you. Email me at

PS I've had your blog in my Google reader for awhile your work!

You can't order from Ikea's website, but you can place a catalogue order by phone. I've done it with a couch, and trust me, it works.

Good luck, and I love your work!

Thanks Mirah. I'll look into the catalog tomorrow.

Mirah, I'll email you. Thanks!

I'm interested to know if you can get this in the US at all...the link goes to the Australian website.

I know, I just realized that the link I put up is the Austrailian one. I don't even know if IKEA has one in the States. Why do they have to make it so difficult? Bug.

If the first commentor can't secure one for you or you are not able to order by phone, email me as I live in Portland and we have and IKEA near me. I have actually been looking at this blanket as well, so I can pick up 2.

i have wanted this blanket so badly! the ikea near me was out of stock every time i've gone over the last 6 months or so... and now the blanket is no longer on the ikea us website. .. if anyone comes across one of these in your local ikea, i would be so appreciative if you'd pick it up and send it to me.... i'm willing to pay a finders fee :]. thanks! * amanda *

Laura, your stunning photography of beautiful new born babies is beautiful, absolutely beautiful.......

I am the proud father of five myself, but I just so happen to be very far away from all of them right now.

I ran across your website when looking up pictures of the Ofelia blanket.

You've made me miss my children so much, and remember just how beautiful they are, as well, thank you.......

I really hope to be back with them soon.
