Christmas Baby

I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas filled with family, friends, and love! We had a white Christmas this year. Nothing major, just decorative snow. Little man was a little disappointed it wasn’t enough to have a snow ball fight.  I didn’t take many pictures this Christmas which disappointed me to no end BUT sometimes it’s more important to be in the moment rather than worrying about getting that great shot.

This precious little angel was such a ham for my camera. We didn’t get to spend enough time together when I took these; but I’m hoping for a round two in a few monthsSmile

I love when I get to shoot a family again and again. To see their family grow and change. This special family has been on the blog before, documenting their family when they were just a family of 3 when baby “L” was still just a bun in the oven and when she was first born. My how time flies!

And as always, none of your images will be shared on the blog or Facebook without your permission.  Feel free to contact me and we can chat about boudoir photography and my relaxed approach if you are feeling any reservations about this type of photography.

A Blog Update

This is the first of many blog updates I will be implementing over the next few months.  I have changed the domain name of the blog to be geared more towards my photography as that is where my creative juices are taking me.  If you come here via some sort of Reader or as a bookmark, please be sure to update them.  The old domains will still route you here until January 2013.

The new domain name is www.hartsdesirephoto.com

Thank you all who come to check out my photography work.  I’ll still be posting a few DIY and Before and After’s as I do them but the blog and my life has taken a turn towards photography and I couldn’t be happier about it!

I hope you will continue to come visit and share in this journey with me.

And because I can’t have a blog post without a picture, this is one from our beach trip this year.

Kitchen Island Update

Way back in September, Heather contacted me to say she loved my island and included it in a daily roundup.  When I checked out her blog (a TON of great ideas all in one place!) I realized how much our kitchen/dinning room had changed since I took that first picture of our island. I realized then that I needed to do a little before and after update and 3 months later I’m finally getting around to it!

So this is what I first posted:

When I first took this picture, we were just finishing up our Kitchen renovation, you can check it out here.  Notice the old light fixture that had been zipped tied to keep heads from knocking into it. 

And here is what it looked like in September:

Blog-1

The new light fixture that hangs over the island was created using a large antique pulley, a pendant light kit, and some sort of country looking knick knack that started as what I think was a bell.  You can also check out my post on the collage wall of here and the post on the DIY curtains that are in the dinning room.

Blog-2

On one side of the wall, I’ve hung 3 wooden crates in various sizes for storage.  The other side of the wall holds my DIY Riddling Rack

Blog-3

We’ve kept one of the original bar stools for little man, and I picked two of these for $8/piece!

Blog-4

It definitely looks and feels more lived in, I just wish I could keep it looking this cluttered free everyday!

 

Have a great Monday!
