I can’t believe this photo is almost a year old now. This is a candid of my friend Clare laughing during a fun photo shoot day when she¬†was about six months pregnant. Last April we were carrying a living room couch out on to the patio in Napa- now I’m missing her, her husband, and their baby after their recent move to the Pacific northwest.

Collage for a Baby

In celebration of my friend Candace who is expecting, I made this collage as a gift for her babyshower this weekend. Candace is a special education k-2 teacher and her and her wife have picked out a gender neutral name without knowing the assigned sex of the baby. 

I focused on a mix of gender neutral bright and earthy tones, and organic and geometric shapes and brought together a bunch of old images I’d been looking forward to using to create a stimulating, bold piece to activate what I know will be an already very intelligent mind. Congratulations!
