old school photo

A tribute to school photos from years past, since school season is upon us. The kids are cute, but it’s the schoolteacher dressed to the nines that cracks me up. She looks ready for a wedding, not a classroom! (click to view larger)

rita's girdles hanging, machine to press papoo's clothes

Please note the hanging girdles, the vintage All, and the machine for pressing her husband’s clothes. And still she smiles! Am feeling quite grateful for modern life at the moment.

Today I designed a book documenting a home birth. Here’s one of the images – mom + baby just hours after the baby’s arrival. Beautiful.

We are so excited to start working with Joel Flory, a SF-based photographer who has such a great eye and fun, creative wedding clients!

We just finished his first sample book, which he featured on his blog. Thanks, Joel!

Tomorrow we start on Helmer and Emma’s gold mining history in Alaska. Such great photos. And I’m learning a lot about gold mining, of all things.

“my skirt couldn’t be much higher…”

From a book I’m working on right now.

A photo this newlywed sent to her husband in World War II. On the back she wrote, “My skirt couldn’t be much higher but – look at my wedding band – I still want to pinch myself to see if I’m dreaming – you’re all mine dearest – we’re one forever.

Love is the greatest.

Shannon just sent me this beautiful image of her holding her newborn girl. I just love it! Something about the black with the lovely blonde lil babe.

We’re using the photo for her daughter’s birth announcements. They’ll be similar in design to Joel McHale’s son Isaac’s announcements which you can see here and here.
