A Family Photo Session at the Park

A few warm afternoons ago, we decided to hike over to the park and take some sweet photos of this little cutie. If you might remember, we took some pictures at Kevin & Janelle's wedding a few years ago. Kevin and I went to art school together for college and it's so amazing to see families grow and evolve. I still can't believe I have a child of my own and so do some of my friends! Life is crazy. We shot these at Ostiningo Park in Binghamton.

Making Instant Memories

 

This summer has been a busy one, filled with travel, tons of eating, and spending our days with all of the people we love. We’ve been finding ways to use our time by being creative and of course taking pictures is a very big part of what we do daily. So, we were so excited when UncommonGoods sent us the Lomo’Instant camera to play with. 

Much like our own business model, UncommonGoods, is extremely committed to creating a quality business that adds value to our world and our lives, by investing in the people who work for them, as well as taking great care in sourcing materials and choosing manufacturers that practice high standards of sustainability. We love partnering with like minded people who care about the earth and each other as much as we do. 

Our two young cousins are visiting from Spain for a few weeks, and Sienna is in love with them both. Tomorrow is Cisco’s birthday, that means summer's end is nearing. UncommonGoods has so many great personalized gifts ideas and other things for men. It was really fun finding this camera for us to make memories with. But, the girls and I had to test it out first, of course. 

As the sun was setting, we spent the warm afternoon taking photographs of each other. These girls are also young, so the magic of a real instant photograph was so new. How fun it was to see this through fresh eyes. 

So, last of the year in our family, is Sienna’s birthday, which isn’t until November, but I’m excited to look through all of the kids gifts on their site. She is obsessed with putty, so this may be a no brainer. 

Making sweet memories and doing something so fun and creative is what I live for. Thank you UncommonGoods for this great gift.

Museum of Play in Rochester

We took a quick trip to Rochester to see some friends we love. We had so much fun at the Museum of Play with our friend Charlie. Wish we had more time and energy to stay longer and visit more. Maybe again soon. Hoping.

New Fishy Father's Day Cards

We have new fishy Father's Day Cards listed in the shop!
2 color screenprint in black & gold ink.

It can sometimes be hard to express in photographs what the ink looks like on paper. Something that I feel strongly about is that our work is much different in person. So you'll have to buy one and see ;)

Screen Printed Business Cards

We have been slowly going through and changing everything over to our new name. So we've screen printed some new business cards with white ink on French Paper Company's kraft card stock. Happy with how they've turned out.

Custom Winter Baby Shower Invitation's

We do custom invitations and other printed goods. This was a baby shower invitation screen printed for one of my very best friends. We met as roommates in college. And now she has a beautiful son. If you are interested in paper goods, tote bags, boxes, or just about anything you can screen print on, let us know ;)
These were printed with silvery blue ink on Dark Blue Card Stock.
See some of our select custom work here.

Essential Oils


I’ve heard of new mothers in other countries like Nepal and India who participate in this loving act of rubbing oil onto and massaging their babies’ skin. I believe any touch is healing and beneficial for us all. I’ve always loved this idea, but it hasn’t been until lately that I’ve decided to try incorporating this into our lives. 

We use different essential oils like Lavender, Tea Tree and Chamomile to rub into the souls of our feet. I want to find time at the end of every day to make a space for our family to sit together, talk, and enjoy right now. Si is at such a sweet time in her life at two and a half years old and and I want to make sure we savor every last bit of it.

Happy Mother's Day

We had a couple of things in the shop for Mother's Day.
Our Printed Pouches are also up.

We hope everyone had a really nice day. I enjoyed a beautiful brunch with my family and got to take an extra long nap in the middle of the day! I'm one lucky lady.

A Good Year

It's been amazing seeing my daughter grow into a toddler over the past year! I'm hoping at some point I'll be able to contribute more to this blog. I do miss it. But for now I'm going to enjoy this time with my daughter and try to be as present as I can. I try to instagram here sometimes.

Terrance

A portrait of cousin Terrance. 

A quick recap of the last few weeks . . . in photos

This is a photo from a beautifully styled & colorful wedding we shot of two local artists at their gorgeous farm house.
Then in July we made the trek home to Maui to visit family. Where my two cousins (also sisters) are both pregnant and due at the same time! 
 This couple put together the most magical wedding in the woods. Everything was so simple and perfect.
 This gorgeous couple were from out of town but got married locally. Can't wait to show your more of their stunning wedding.

Kylee & Yoffrey


It took me way to long to post these, but I hope they are worth the wait. Probably one of the most beautiful wedding's we've ever had the pleasure to shoot. Kylee is a college friend and gorgeous girl and her new husband Yoffrey was such a pleasure to work with. Enjoy more photo here! Also note, I will not try to shoot a wedding at 8 months pregnant again :)
