So, here I am, turning the page and starting anew after a nice rest during which I soaked in some late summer sunshine, celebrated my daughter's first birthday and sent my son off to pre-school. For those of you who used to read my posts on Tutta la Storia, welcome to Under A Shady Tree!
A few weeks ago my husband said that he missed my blog posts. That was all I needed to get back to Blogland. You see, Tutta was mainly created to keep family updated that were far from us. My husband is out of town nearly every week, so I was chronicling moments from home for him to share in.
My first blog post on Tutta was a collection of photos taken to celebrate my son's first birthday. We recently did the same a couple of weekends ago in Maine for my daughter. We chose a spot not far from where I grew up and a friend from school took the photos. The day was breezy, sunny, and beautiful. Enjoy.
The dresses that Ella is wearing are vintage--the pink one is from the 50s and the white one is a Victorian Christening gown that was altered to add-in a doily that says "Baby." These were gifts from my Mother.
The photographer is William Morgan Conant from Brunswick Maine. Leave me a comment here if you would like his contact information.
