  4. Question (if I may): Do you shoot and publish raw photos? I love your photography style so much, it's so simple and focused and everything is so perfectly framed. Lovely, lovely, lovely.
    I made a commitment to finally figure out how to use my wonderful beasty camera this year, poor thing is probably feeling abused by me ha.

  6. I know where you were! Julius Meinl!

    Have you ever gone to Southport Grocery and Cafe? The reason I ask is because I was just there on Sunday and we passed a Julius Meinl while we were walking around Southport Ave. Anyway, you should try it - the cupcakes are heavenly! And so are the bread pudding pancakes! And the hash!

    Beautiful pictures :) beautiful baby!

  7. @carissa - I almost always shoot raw. And don't be afraid of your manual setting on the camera! Possibilities are endless, just experiment! :)
    @becka - it really was heaven!
    @olivia - thank you!
