Matter Of Time


I am sure it is only a matter of time before Alex will no longer allow me to play with her, use her as a model and take millions of pictures of her.  Right now she enjoys it for a little while and then gets a little sick of it until I offer her candy or something yummy to do it for a little bit longer.


I am in love with ETSY.  I could and do spend hours looking at all the different shops, seeing what these creative women ( maybe men ) make.  I wish I was artsy in that way and could make my own props and cute headbands and bows for my daughter.  


But I can't so for now Etsy will have my business.  Some Etsy shops work with photographers, giving discounts or trades for images.  I am happy to offer some of my images ( if they think they are good enough ) for some of there products or in exchange for a discount. 


I enjoy working with other moms, young ladies or grandmas.  They are doing something they are passionate about and so am I.  Photography is my passion and adding fun things like headbands, bows and hats into the mix makes it a lot more fun.  


These headbands are from Mia at Dolce Vita Mia and they are fabulous! I got 5 of them and did a small outdoor photo shoot with Alex wearing 4 of the headbands.  I have decided to do a giveaway with the 5th.  I have never done a giveaway before but thought it would be a lot of fun to allow on of you to win one of these adorable headbands.  


These headbands have a vintage look to them and that is what I love about them.  They are unique and absolutely stunning.  She has lots to offer and a lot of different looks.  You can even convo her and she will work with you to make something perfect!


I am not a huge headband or bow type of girl but Alex will no longer allow me to put her hair in pig tails so I have been on the search for cute stuff.  of course I will warn you that if you do stop on over to her shop or any shop on ETSY you will be sucked in and you will be in danger!
