Lego Love

March 9, 2011

In case I EVER forget what it is like to have two Lego-loving boys in the house. You know, in 1,000 years when the last one is finally picked up and not embedded in the bottom of my feet.

Remind me about this photo and how this is just a scene from everyday life.

So.

March 9, 2011

I was all set to post Erin and Dan here and then I have an engagement session with Julie and Seth to share and then I had a great event at Jonathan Edwards Winery last week to share and…..I’m ready to move on from these blog confines. I am hard at work on a new blog and a new website, with some excellent creative partners, and I think it is time to take a hiatus until I can fill my gorgeous new blog with those images.

I have a few more tidbits to share here this month while I wait for the new blog to be revealed, but I am going to hold off on those client photos for now.

See you soon!

Erin + Dan on Style Me Pretty today!

March 3, 2011

Hooray for Erin and Dan! Their beautiful story was published today on Style Me Pretty, and all of us  involved with the day are cheering that Erin’s lovely vision is now being shared far and wide for her fans to see!

I can’t wait to share more of my favorites, but I’ll wait till you’ve had a chance to enjoy the gallery on Style Me Pretty. Starting tomorrow, I’ll do some posts sharing some of my favorite moments of the sparkly day on the Stonington shoreline. I’m sure Erin is preparing a wedding recap, too, so check in at Sparkle & Hay for the full story from Mrs. Sparkle herself, coming soon!

A few changes on the way

March 3, 2011

This blog has served as a catchall for baby and kid stories and photos, ramblings, recipes and client photos for a very long time, and it’s time for something new!

When I started here on wordpress nearly five years ago, I didn’t even have a phone that took a photo. (Really!) So all my posts about my kids turned into long (long!) winded narratives with lots of lovingly and carefully selected photos and…well, I think only crazy new mothers can keep that up. Or bloggers far more organized than me.

So then, when I got a phone with a camera (I think this was the first time I posted a cell phone picture, in 2008) and started using it all the time to illustrate the funny moments in our days, it didn’t seem like this spot was the place—mixed in with gorgeous brides and sweet, clean babies—to feature my messy, muddy duo.

And, since I was almost never sitting down at the computer to record the moments I wanted to remember, it felt like I needed a place to post by phone the mobile memories we were making. So, Will and Henry (a.k.a. Hank and Willie) have a new home on tumblr. It’s right here, and the address is annasawin.tumblr.com.

And has fine images like this one there:

I’m going to keep a similar eclectic mix here, but those tiny feet you see above in the header have grown (when I can find the image file of those feet, it will migrate over to tumblr, too) and might not need so many posts of their own. Since, thankfully, they don’t keep us up at night anymore, and as I look back, it seems that all I did was write about that and post recipes for hot fudge sauce.

So this space here, connected to my photography website, is going to be undergoing a transformation along with my website this month. I’ll still be posting client images here until the transformation is finished, but I’m hoping that will be soooooon–I’m ready!

Here’s a wee sliver of a peek at the website and blog changes coming up, designed by Lucinda Wesson of Chocolate Creative Design. Can’t wait!
