… ingrid week by week

1 week

fabric: michael miller dumb dot

it's amazing how quickly babies change, no? i can't believe our little girl is 5 weeks old today.

to document ingrid's growth (and to have some fun) we've been photographing her at each week's milestone. i hope that at the end of the year we'll have a terrific collection of photos showing how much she's changed, and also something super pretty to look at.

2 weeks

fabric: anna maria horner summer totem in tart (from the loulouthi collection)

this idea is not mine at all, but something blatantly ripped off from the fine folks over at young house love. they photographed their adorable daughter every week with different fabric backdrops and photoshopped the week onto the onesie. when i saw this i thought, "this is the project for me!" not only do i also have an adorable new daughter to photograph, but i also have an endless supply of fabric on which to photograph her. though, sadly, what i didn't realize when i started this project is that i'd need at least a yard of fabric for the backdrop, and most of the cuts in my stash are half yards or smaller. so, good news/bad news, that means i have to start buying new fabric to keep this up. oh, the things we have to suffer for the sake of our children, right?

3 weeks

fabric: monaluna anika organic blossoms

i chose not to add the number of weeks to the onesie, but instead to make an icon over the fabric itself. but otherwise, i'm pretty much doing exactly what they did. and i'm going to tell you what the fabric of the week is, because i'm thoughtful like that.

4 weeks

fabric: timeless treasures organic apples and pears in cream (from the fruit punch collection)

so please enjoy these photos of my sweet snowdrop from the last 5 weeks and stay tuned for more to come!
