This blog has served as a catchall for baby and kid stories and photos, ramblings, recipes and client photos for a very long time, and it’s time for something new!
When I started here on wordpress nearly five years ago, I didn’t even have a phone that took a photo. (Really!) So all my posts about my kids turned into long (long!) winded narratives with lots of lovingly and carefully selected photos and…well, I think only crazy new mothers can keep that up. Or bloggers far more organized than me.
So then, when I got a phone with a camera (I think this was the first time I posted a cell phone picture, in 2008) and started using it all the time to illustrate the funny moments in our days, it didn’t seem like this spot was the place—mixed in with gorgeous brides and sweet, clean babies—to feature my messy, muddy duo.
And, since I was almost never sitting down at the computer to record the moments I wanted to remember, it felt like I needed a place to post by phone the mobile memories we were making. So, Will and Henry (a.k.a. Hank and Willie) have a new home on tumblr. It’s right here, and the address is annasawin.tumblr.com.
And has fine images like this one there:
I’m going to keep a similar eclectic mix here, but those tiny feet you see above in the header have grown (when I can find the image file of those feet, it will migrate over to tumblr, too) and might not need so many posts of their own. Since, thankfully, they don’t keep us up at night anymore, and as I look back, it seems that all I did was write about that and post recipes for hot fudge sauce.
So this space here, connected to my photography website, is going to be undergoing a transformation along with my website this month. I’ll still be posting client images here until the transformation is finished, but I’m hoping that will be soooooon–I’m ready!
Here’s a wee sliver of a peek at the website and blog changes coming up, designed by Lucinda Wesson of Chocolate Creative Design. Can’t wait!
