Tea for one.
A capture from one my quiet mornings before my girls wake. This is definitely my favorite time of the day!
Fuji Superia 400
I hope that you had a wonderful first day of Spring!
This weekend, a friend had her very first gallery opening – good times, indeed.
There is nothing quite like being surrounded by art, good food, and conversation for an entire evening.

I found a cute little french bakery near my home. I’m worried that stopping in for “a little something sweet” (in my case, macarons) may become habit forming. I don’t think that there is any turning back after these little splurges~
Have a wonderful weekend my friends!
Kodak Ektar 100 film
Ranunculus are quite possibly my favorite flower. Even on rainy, grey filled days (hence the blue tint) – they still spark a sense of beauty and nostalgia….
About those spring portraits…..
The natural light was perfect. Her dress was ready.
But she had other plans – I couldn’t get her to keep her dress down, or stay still! I guess I’ll have to try again when it’s actually Spring.
Bits and pieces of my days recently. I’m a little addicted to steel cut oats ~
I want to thank you for your kind visits and comments (I truly appreciate each and every one). It makes coming to this space and sharing my work truly worth it!
I have a few links for you today that I have enjoyed recently ~
+ Blown away by this photo by Whitnee.
+ An interesting read regarding copyright infringement. The woman in the photo is striking, and this is a constant reminder about the risks of sharing work on flickr and online……
+ Astrid shares her favorite film.
+ Katarina’s hats and polaroids post – gorgeous!
+ Irene and Xanthe’s new blog, London vs. Paris.
Have a wonderful day!
As promised, I wanted to share with you my film images of our tea date last weekend. It was cold and rainy outside, and I feel these captures reflect the warmth and coziness we shared inside. In a way, film does that for me – captures the moment exactly how I remember it.
And let me assure you, there is nothing cuter than watching little girls enjoy their tea!
A sure sign that Spring is on it’s way is the sweet morning light streaming through the windows in the mornings.
And if I could bottle the scent of this freesia for you, I would label it “heaven“.
Here’s to the start of a wonderful week, my friends.
I enjoyed tea this weekend with a dear friend and our girls. And although it rained outside, we were nice and cozy inside, enjoying our tea.
A little preview for you ~ I took film images as well, which I hope to share with you later this week!
On the first day of winter, I hosted a winter photo swap. I thought it would be an excellent way to get through these cold months, by finding beauty in winter and exchanging a photo with someone else around the world.
I asked the participants to send me captures of the photos they received. The results were beautiful! Here are some of the winter images that were exchanged:
Gorgeous right? Thanks to all who participated!
More captures from this day, all taken at my mother’s home – hence, the paint brushes! The grain is courtesy of ISO 800 film, which should have been ISO 400 based on my lighting, but I like the results nonetheless.
Today I’m picking up some I dropped off film at the lab and I have no clue what’s on it. I love that.
I have a few links that I enjoyed this week that I would like to share with you ~
+ 9 things Irene’s son’s have taught her on their 9th birthday
+ Elisabelle’s beautiful portraits.

Thanks so much for your kind comments on the “what’s in my bag” post! As you can see, I can’t take may shots without one (or both) girls nearby.
Happy weekend to you!
In all honesty, it’s “what’s in your diaper bag” since that’s what I am carrying these days! I thought it would be fitting to do one of these posts since I enjoyed looking at what people tote around (i.e. Alice, Hannah, Brian, Elisabelle and countless others). As an added bonus, I found out yesterday that I won an *emera bag by entering a giveaway on Kim’s blog. So I will soon transfer all of these goods to my first official camera bag!
+ I carry everything in a Skip-Hop Duo diaper bag. I like it, but the flap gets in my way most of the time. It holds everything though, with a little spare room.
+ My Pentax film camera and spare film. I should mention that I either carry this camera or my DSLR since they are both pretty hefty. These days, it’s mostly the Pentax.
+ The only Canon I own – a SD1300 IS point and shoot, a gift from my mom. I use this for quick captures of my girls during the day.
+ Baby goods – change of clothes, diapers, wipes, toys.
+ My wallet, iphone, and chap stick.
And there you have it ~
I’d love to see what you carry!
I am leaning more and more on coffee these days. And loving the blue tones of these film captures……
Is it March already?
