Last night I finally finished letterpress printing Eliot’s birth announcements. I still have to score, fold, trim, stuff and send them, but the hardest part is finished.
Along with the card, we’ll be including a newborn photo to show off his adorableness. We have so many amazing images to choose from thanks to my dear friend Cassi (of Sassa Art Photography). She is a total genius behind the lens. She came to visit and shoot these images just days after Eliot was born, and they are incredible. Can you believe I haven’t shared them, yet? I got a little carried away with life!
Well, I’ll make up for it. Here you go:

Wow, right? And I could have shared 25 more that I love just as much. I am fascinated by the way she used natural light in the comfort of my home and created such a peaceful space with Eliot. If you’re lucky enough to live in the Bay Area, and are looking for a photographer, I can’t recommend Sassa Art more highly.
I am so happy that Cassi made the trip (with her 3 month old, leaving a 2.5 year old with grandma!) On top of being the beautiful photographer that she is, she was the most spectacular friend and helper in my two-days-postpartum experience. She brought gifts for everyone, played with Milo so I could rest, and was available for those good, friend-I’ve-known-since-we-were-twelve conversations whenever I felt up to gabbing. After all of the difficulty surrounding the final days of my pregnancy, Cassi was a breath of fresh air. Thank you again doll. You know I love you.
