Welcome, Finn! / by Annemie Tonken

Hi all! I've got another set of beautiful newborn photos for your enjoyment, but first I wanted to take a second to point out my brand-spankin' new toolbar at the bottom of the blog. See it? It should've popped up when you loaded the page, and should have several links on it, including buttons allowing you to share a post on facebook or twitter, contact me, check out my FB/Twitter pages, or put the blog in your rss feed. You know me: I'm not a pushy person, but I get almost all of my business via word of mouth, and I'm always looking for ways to make it easier for you to spread the word! Let me know if you aren't seeing the toolbar, or have trouble with any of the links. Otherwise, please feel free to like, follow, tweet, etc., etc. whenever you see or read something you like... and later this week I'll tell you how instant karma might just get you for it! And now... without further ado:

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a sneak peek of three day-old Finn's photo shoot here, but man, was it hard picking just a couple of photos for the sneak peek! This little guy is absolutely gorgeous:

From the minute I met Sarah & Sean, I felt like we could be great friends. We have loads in common - from views on childbirth to Sarah's love of knitting to the stack of vegetarian cookbooks in their kitchen. Mostly, though, despite the fact that I went to their house just the day after they got home from the hospital, they were totally relaxed and comfortable and head-over-heels in love with their new baby... my kind of people!

I also love Sarah & Sean's house - so many fantastic touches and fun decor! I love the bright colors in the dining room...

...and Finn's matching hat :D

The nursery is all airplanes and looks like something straight out of apartment therapy... the mobile below was the inspiration for the room:

Sarah and Sean: it was such a pleasure meeting you and little Finn... I hope I get to see you again sometime soon ('cause an annual photo in front of your tree of life would be aaahmmaaazing! Just sayin')!
