Ankles Crossed Flowers at Feet BLOG
It began with a burlap box that caught my eye.....
Vday Sarah Chin on her Wrist Tapastry BLOG
I often see things when I am out and about that inspire me in some way.
FINAL Pear in Hand BLOG
When I do, I am never quite sure where it will lead me....
Leaning Back Vday Pink Dress Tapastry Square BLOG
or what the end result will look like, but it is a starting point.
Burlap Pears and Pretty Feet BLOG
I have stared at this burlap box for about 10 days...and finally it all came together in my head.
VDay Sarah with Flowers BLOG
The pink dress for contrast, the fresh fruit and flowers, and one natural beauty.
Head on hands Pink Dress Vday BLOG
Hard to believe she is 6 years old when you look at these photos.
She looks so much older and more mature....
I think it is the long straight hair free or any clips of headbands.
Whatever it is, I hope she stops growing up so quickly.
Looking at these makes me want to freeze time....
she is definitely giving us a glimpse of the years to come.

The winter months are the most difficult for me....photographically speaking.
I find it difficult to keep my photography mojo because for the most part, it is too cold to shoot outdoors.
These are the months I really need to give myself an extra push to stay creative, so I look wherever I can to find inspiration.
The burlap box did not end with Sarah. You will see a little more of it this week:)
The neutral color and texture are fantastic...
just wait until you see it close up{hint hint}!

Oh gosh...I looooove those pics. Will you teach a class on how to do that too? Tee hee. That picture of your daughter's feet dangling off the box looks like something I'd purchase for my daughter's bedroom.

She is adorable! She looks older than her years in these pictures but she hasn't lost that innocence yet.
I have loved looking at your pictures.
