Little Posers - divine photography!

Being 28 weeks pregnant, all things 'baby' are on my mind! Whilst browsing the Mathilda's Market website, I came across an incredibly talented Brisbane woman who is specialising in portrait photography of newborns. Lana Bell is the creative force behind Little Posers, and her portfolio of work really made me gasp with delight! She has captured the gorgeousness of babies in their first days of life out of the womb, photos which would be treasured for generations to come. Needless to say, I am in the process of placing a booking with her for when my own little bundle of deliciousness arrives in May.

Even if you aren't in the baby market, you will really enjoy browsing the photos shown on Lana's website.

Wonderful new frames from Obrien Schridde Designs

I have previously posted an article about the gorgeous creations from Obrien Schridde Designs. This very talented, LA-based duo create elegant, timeless timber photo frames which are perfect for tastefully showing off family photos and favourite piccies. Happily I can tell you they have added two lovely new designs to their exceptional range, "Nostalgic" (above left) and "Ivy" (above right). These new frames are smaller and more delicate in design, and complement their existing range of frames beautifully.

These frames, once hung, become a talking point in your home, showing off your pictures and also your wonderful personal style.

For gorgeous, hand-painted ceramics you can't go past Ensparkle Ceramics. These wonderful keepsakes are designed and painted by mother of two, Helen, in Sydney Australia. Such cute creations which would make wonderful Christening gifts, birthday gifts, or just lovely items to use in the home!

All products are non-toxic, using dinnerware safe paints and glaze, so you needn't worry about what your child is actually ingesting (apart from their nutritious dinners!).
