The Prettiest Thing I’ve Created Yet

I can’t help but think my daughter is the prettiest thing I’ve ever created. Probably since I had help. June turned 2 months old this past week and my friend and Minneapolis photographer, Amber of Amber Lianne Photography, captured some beautiful photos of her. She’s wearing a Dalida family heirloom passed down from her Auntie Faith. To see more photos or to check out Amber’s photography, visit her blog or facebook page!


Growing Life

It’s amazing that my little “bundle of joy” started out so teeny tiny in my belly. Pregnancy boggles my mind and amazes me — it truly is proof of a creative designer. My little June Sunshine is 6 weeks old and growing out of her newborn clothes. My, how time has really sped up since she made her appearance. She is such a blessing, and Darin and I are so grateful to God for giving us this opportunity to raise a child. I’m not saying it hasn’t been challenging at times, but, morning sickness, labor & delivery, sleep deprivation, every poopy diaper and fussy cry is worth it.

Above is the project I have been working on over the past few months with the help of my friend and talented photographer, Jonny. I wanted to record my baby’s growth in a fun and unique way. Jonny so graciously met me at The Guthrie Theater’s “Amber Room” every few weeks to capture photos of my growing belly. I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out!

28 Weeks

I’ve now entered my third trimester! I’m already starting to feel rather large, and I still have 3 months to go. This belly is only getting bigger. I’m praying for a decent last trimester. Baby has really started to move around a lot! According to my reading material, she is weighing in at about 2 lbs and is the size of a Butternut Squash. It’s mind boggling to think there’s a person inside my belly and that we will get to meet her soon. What a crazy thing – but a perfect thing, intelligently designed by our Creator.

Sneak Peek

22 Weeks, Photo taken by Jonny Edwin Photography

I am very excited about a little project I’ve been working on, with the help of my photographer friend (Really, the only contribution I’m making is growing my pregnant belly). You’ll have to wait until my 40 weeks is up to see it, but here is one photo that is contributing to the masterpiece. It was taken at the Guthrie Theater in the Amber Room, overlooking the river. I couldn’t be more happy with the way things are going. A BIG thanks to the talented Jonny Edwin.

Logo Design: Amber Lianne Photography

I had the privilege of designing a logo and business card for my talented friend, Amber, a few months back.  She captures people, pets, and the World through the lens of a camera. In her portfolio, you’ll find a wide array of Engagements, Weddings, Nature, Pets, and Portraits. Some of my favorite shots are of her fuzzy little kitten, Cayenne. But you’ll have to check out her blog to see those.

I had a lot of fun designing for Amber because I know her style.  She was also very detailed when explaining to me what she wanted.  We used light, airy, fresh colors to match her photography style, as well as match who she is as a person.  When meeting her, you’ll find a friendly, honest, down-to-earth girl.
