Meet Victoria Grace!

Despite the dreadful weather two of our dear friends, Andrew and Arcenia, and their lovely baby girl Victoria, were able to make it to our house earler this afternoon. We had planned Victoria’s 7-month photo shoot for a few weeks and I was thrilled to see that outside conditions did not spoil our plans.
We had a wonderful time and baby Victoria was such a great sport- not a tear in her eye but many smiles and giggles.
Here is a little preview from today’s session.



The first day of Spring?

I could not believe my eyes when I woke up this morning. Snow?? On the first day of Spring?? Really?? I did not expect it. Winter does not want to leave quitely.
I must admit, however, there is something magical about snow-covered trees... Here are some photos I snapped from my window earlier today.

Dress Making

I must admit that my interest in art does not end with photography. I have always been into all the 'craftsy' things like drawing, painting, and some ‘domestic arts‘ like knitting, crotcheting and sewing. The latter has occupied some of my free time lately, along with numerous trips to the local fabric store. I am including a few images of my latest creation below. When I came across this fabric I knew I had to have it. It’s so feminine and so gorgeous I immediately thought of Michael Kors‘ floral dress from his Fall 2008 collection (yes, a little past season but very flattering). My dress isn’t an exact replica but an inspiration of the above. I am definitely not a master at this and have not been trained at all but somehow I managed to put it together and I think it came out nicely (just don’t ask me for the dress patterns- none exist ;-). I am thinking of taking up some sewing and design lessons in the near future.

This dress is the third one I am adding to my do-it-yourself dress collection =)
Now, off to looking for my next inspiration.... Ciao!
