Perhaps you thought we decided not to have Auntie Calla do a photo shoot for this one? Not on your life. In fact, this one was much easier because everyone was more laid back. Second children, folks—much easier than the first!
More pictures soon. Promise.
Gosh this computer fiasco has really left me feeling beaten down. Does a photoshoot with Ms. Evans count as a craft?
Well if it doesn’t, I am still workin’ away at several projects that I hope to finish and post for you soon.
I don’t have a craft for you today, but I do have a promise. My wedding has been featured on many a wedding blog, has sealed the deal for many a client for Ms. Evans, but my I think the only person who has something printed from the day is my mother-in-law, and that’s only because she took a file from the onlines and went and printed it herself.
As part of craft month, I pledge to take some time away from other fine couples’ albums and finally design my OWN wedding album. I mean, it’s been two years, and with photos like these, I really should get on it.
Before it’s not January anymore, and my excuses are all gone, here are some of the lovely absolutely freakin’ AMAZING photos Miss Evans took over the course of my pregnancy. She’s something, ain’t she?
1 vintage scale
1 Le Creuset dutch oven
1 picnic basket
2 yards of gingham
6 alphabet blocks
1 serving platter
1 pack Polaroid Spectra film, saved from 2007, specifically for baby
1 change of clothes for mommy
3+ changes of clothes for Samson
1 handknit scarf
1 quick laundry cycle
5 balls of yarn
1 bamboo tray
…make for an amazing set of photos, that we’re quite sure, being a guy, Samson won’t really appreciate, but his wife is going to LOVE.

The pretty red oktomat comes from Ms. Calla Evans as a going away present, of sorts. I shot my last wedding with her last weekend, and now I’m off for peanut growin’, birthin’, and rearin’. The oktomat replaces my SuperSampler with which I was able to take masterful photos while I had one on loan, but kept breaking when I finally got to own one. I’ve had it replaced twice under warranty, and currently it sits in a box waiting for some useful instructions on how to keep that silly pull cord winding the film without breaking.
And so you don’t think I left Calla empty handed as I walked away from her, here’s what I made for her. CF card pouches (to replace her current system: ziploc bags). They come complete with colour-coded tags and zippers (red means stop, green means go shoot more weddingtimes!). Not only do the pouches match our ShootSacs, but the tags should make it easy to pull out the right pouch when stashed inside one of the Shootsac pockets.
And so you don’t think I’m only a hipster when it comes to photography, I just had to stage these pouches for the photos on my vintage Singer sewing machine bought at an antique market for $25. And it works.
