Our theme for this week is “Patterns.” We are a cloth diapering family, and one of my favorite things about cloth diapers, is all the fun prints and colours! (To see my previous entries, please click here.) If you are new to my blog, I am a professional photographer in Spokane, WA, and I offer photography for Maternity, Birth, Newborn, Babywearing, and Breastfeeding. I recently joined a “Project 52” with a few other photographers from around the globe, and we are sharing one photo a week based on a weekly theme. Feel free to click over to the next photo from this project by Sarah Dragman. If you are interested in inviting me to help you capture the special parts of your life story, please reach out; I would love to hear from you!

Our theme for this week is “Black and White.” This is a rare photo of my toddler and I… The transition to two children is a challenge for many reasons, but largely for me because ever since birthing our second baby 6 months ago, I have struggled with feelings of “missing” Arielle, and not feeling as close to her. So I’ve been trying to be more intentional about spending quality time together, just the two of us. This photo happened shortly after we were reading a book together, and she saw my camera nearby, and said, “I want pictures, mama,” and nestled cozily into my arms. This is the first time she has ever actually asked to be in a photo with me (and the first time she simply wanted to be held while doing so, instead of asking to push all the buttons)! My curly-haired, wild little girl, with her ever so curious gaze, and tender cuddles; I love her so much.

A few photographer-friends from the PBAP invited me to join a Project 52, which means, each week of this year, we will share an image in line with the theme of the week. This week’s theme is “New,” and I am working hard this month to learn many new ways to wear my babies. Below is Chloie and I, all wrapped up in a Hip, Kangaroo Carry, with a Kerrington Pearl woven wrap. This is a brand new carry for us, and she loved it so much, she was asleep before I even got done wrapping!  (Colour version on my Instagram.)

A few friends asked how to do this carry – when I get better at it, I will have to
make one myself, but for now, CLICK HERE for a great instructional video:
