meeting mrs french | a 1yr birthday girl party + picnic
the image above was selected to be printed as their large print (20x30)... since it's one of most fav images ever, i totally approved. (plus i have swwwooony love for large prints)
waiting sooo patiently for a bite while sissy has the first nibbles of her cupcake
as he was allowed the one bite *munch* he took the biggest one he could.. :)
jammies + story time
happy first birthday little lu!
we met online.. it was a back and forth thing.. little email here.. little love note there. 'i LOVE your blog!'... 'ooo.. i LOVE your work'
but an actual face to face meeting for tea & chats proved elusive with our crazy schedules. until i got the call..
'ack! lui is turning 1 yr old, we are moving to bend the day after her birthday and i would adore for you to photograph her before we leave and oh yes, we leave in 4 days.'
ok.. no panic.. we can do this. i brewed up some ideas tossed them at the lovely mrs french she tossed some back and a sweet 1 yr old birthday shoot was hatched.
with sunlight tickling thru the branches and a smiling young boy running at me, we finally met. and it was all true. the whole french family was just as sweet and charming as i imagined.
if you haven't yet had the pleasure of longing stares at mrs french's blissfulbblog you are cordially invited... she has a collection of delightful meals, goodies for you, places to yearn for, and much more.. set timer.. you might get a bit lost in all the loveliness. :)
and if you would care to hear her side of the story, mrs french wrote a much too kind blog post .. MUCH more timely than i :) enjoy!
