Oh, my sweet girl… it’s been a difficult month so far. After months of debate, your daddy and I finally decided to move you to a different Montessori school. It’s a great school, and much more in line with what we want and expect for your care and education (which we take very seriously!) We know that you’ll love it in time, but in the short term the change has been really tough for you.
You’ve been acting out a lot and daddy and I haven’t always reacted with the love and patience we know you need right now. Parents make mistakes, too, but I promise we’re trying and we’re going to try harder. We’ll all get through this rough patch and things will go back to feeling happy and predictable.
Hang in there, buddy… you’ll make new friends at school and things will start to feel more comfortable for you there. Until then, daddy and I will support you as best we can. We love you soooooo much, no matter what, and we’re so immensely proud of the little girl you’re becoming and what a fantastic big sister you are.
I am joined in this “Letters to our Children” blog circle by an amazing group of photographers and moms. Together, we’ll be writing these letters every month in honor of our love for our sons and daughters. I encourage you to head over to my sweet friend Carrie’s blog to read her letter to her daughter.
We’ve all found ourselves in this position – we don’t quite know exactly what we want, we’ll just know it when we see it. That’s where my friend Heather of Heather Meyer Photography had been with her branding for the past couple years. She’d tried out a few pre-made logos but was never 100% happy with them, so when she was getting ready to launch her business she knew it was time for something custom made just for her. She wanted her branding to feel whimsical, emotional, and intimate, and what we came up with – well, I’m kind of obsessed with it…
Thanks for trusting me with your branding, Heather! You were awesome to work with and I can’t wait to see your business take off!
I’m so excited to share my latest design venture with you – the custom ProPhoto site I created for my good friend Kristy of Kristy Dooley Photography. I’ve been wanting to work with the ProPhoto platform for a long time now, so when Kristy decided it was time to upgrade her Blogger site to something more professional, I was thrilled that she turned to me for help.
The first step was to update her existing branding to incorporate a slightly different color palette, then I started developing her custom web elements and site layout…
Kristy’s landing page features a rotating masthead gallery, Featured Galleries, her Latest Blog Post, and custom buttons that link to her most important pages and Facebook.
I think the most fun part for me was creating a custom About page for Kristy… one of the trickiest (but most important) aspects of branding is to ensure that when potential clients visit your site their reaction is “this is someone I want to work with.” So Kristy’s About page was critical… our goal was to capture her fun, easy going personality in a visually appealing, not too text-heavy way.
In need of a custom ProPhoto site to showcase your photography? Contact me! I’m now offering packages that include ProPhoto design and full implementation, and I’d love to work with you.
Your brother arrived a couple of weeks ago and you, my sweet girl, are an AWESOME big sister. I was so worried about how you would react to him, and from the moment you saw him you have been head over heels in love with him. You’ve been incredibly sweet and gentle, and love playing mama’s little helper when it comes to taking care of him.
I really didn’t think it was possible to love you any more, but seeing you as a big sister has only solidified for me how insanely wonderful you are – and how lucky I am that I get to be your mama.
