{MATERNITY} Ashley + Scott

2013-07-10_0009 Ashley and I met a couple of months ago at prenatal yoga and discovered that not only are we due within a month of each other, but we also live in the same neighborhood! She and her husband, Scott, are so excited to welcome their little boy next month and I was honored when they asked me to take some maternity photos for them.

This session is actually Part 1 of 2... they love their sweet dog, Dax - their first "baby" - and knew they wanted to include him in their maternity photos. So we did this little session right in our neighborhood, and then we'll head into Downtown Frederick in a few weeks to do more photos of just Ashley and Scott. I can't wait!







Zachary's 1st Birthday!

This past Sunday was my sweet nephew's 1st birthday, and I was so excited to do the decorations for his party. Zachary looooves monkeys so my sister naturally went with a monkey theme. I busted out my Silhouette and got to work...

Our super talented cousin Emily made all the baked goods, and I added the name cards, wrappers, and toppers. I purchased a set of monkey clip art for the graphics and custom Silhouette shapes. I used the leftover dots from cutting the cupcake wrappers as confetti.

I got this super tall palm tree from Party City to display photos from Zach's first year. The bananas are a Silhouette shape and I used the Xyron to make them into stickers.

Happy Birthday, Zachary!!! :-)

PS... I'm trying out some new photo layouts from Pugly Pixel, and really liking them. The best part is they're FREE! Gotta love the Internet.
