sarah's family photos

All photos by Frances Moulin

Sarah's family photo session was like a big family reunion at Trinity Park in Fort Worth. Only they were reuniting for one special person - their Granny. Sadly, sweet Granny has been battling cancer, so for her 75th birthday, her grandchildren, great grandchildren and other loved ones gathered to take family photos to give to her as a very special birthday present. And I was lucky enough to capture it all. 

Granny loves to crochet and made each of her grandkids a blanket over the years, which they brought with them. They all have such big hearts - and they love to laugh together! Such an amazing family.

In honor of the return of my Etsy shop (stay tuned, adding items as we speak, including vintage finds!), I decided to round up a few lovelies that caught my eye on Etsy lately. So many talented artists out there - please do keep them in mind for upcoming birthdays, showers and the holidays.

little miss london

All photos by Frances Moulin
My friends Megan and Martin had the most adorable and petite baby girl named London. And recently I was able to spend some time with her / snuggle / take a few newborn pics. Isn't she ridiculously sweet? 

The ribbon skirt pictured is courtesy of our talented friend Amber, my fellow craftinista. Also, London's amazing crib sheet was specially picked by mama and daddy to represent the tree of life - just darling. 

The floral scarf in these images is the scarf mama Megan wore to the hospital when London was born. (Wipe tear.)

rosemary crowns

All photos by Frances Moulin
This idea was adapted from rosemary crowns I saw during my neighborhood Fourth of July parade. Several people were wearing these beautiful rosemary creations adorned with simple metallic tinsel, and I thought it was too perfect for my friend Ale's bridal shower I recently hosted at my casa.

At first I was going to make each lady a crown as a favor, but then I thought it would be more interesting if each of us made our own. So naturally, I turned it into a craft. And it was a hit!

There's really no full DIY needed here. All you have to do is cut two to three long sprigs of rosemary, wash and dry, tie them together with fabric or twine, and adorn with ribbon, fresh flowers, tinsel, the sky's the limit, really.

Have fun, my beautiful rosemary princesses!

Penny tried to leave Ale some marital advice, but she ended up falling asleep on the cards instead.
