...and then "look out, there's a new photographer in town"

>> We had decided earlier in my pregnancy that we weren't going to have maternity photos "professionally" taken this time, but rather we will get family photos taken this fall! However, maternity and baby photos are my favorite to photograph so I just couldn't resist doing a couple! So I hired in the help of my wonderful Husband to replace me behind the camera so I could be on the other end! At first he grumbled, and then he was [secretly] excited...and then a little more grumbling when the time actually came! And if you ask him, he will tell you "I don't know what I'm doing!"...well, these photos are exactly what I was looking for and would have captured myself and I am so proud of him and the job he did! Thank you babe and yes, you do know what you're doing! :) {I better look out, a new photographer might be in town! hehe}

...and then "a new camera calls for a new camera bag and strap"

>> So when I bought my new camera, I of course needed to get a new camera bag and strap...however, the ones online are just so darn expensive and I had recently purchased a new bag for all of my lenses and accessories, but didn't have something to protect the body and lens I keep attached.  I found this pattern on ETSY and I couldn't be happier with out it turned out!
**Note: It would NOT have turned out had it not been for my mom --> Alice Teunis [Thanks mom, even though you doubted my color choices when we purchased the have to agree it suits me perfectly! Yay for contrast!] :)

...and then "she made a truly simple and quick fringe tank"

>> Sorry it's been awhile since I've posted any new Pinterest Projects, but here ya go! I've been wanting to try this one for awhile, but have been waiting to find tank tops really cheap! Meijer finally put theirs on clearance and so I hunted them down so I could make this top!
