We had a photo shoot

May 30, 2007

Far more than Isabella Kate but I think it has something to do with being a newborn with a full tummy and a 3 year old that is always ready to play. Tomorrow I am going to take photos of Isabella Kate’s toes and fingers.

What a moment…

May 9, 2007

I have been a fan of Martha Stewart for over 20 years and I never thought I would get to talk to Martha much less to Martha Live on her show.
