Introducing Retro Love Photography: Fine Art Prints {giveaway}

HOW WE CAME ACROSS EACH OTHER

I met Nastasia 9 years ago. We were both working as nannies in London, we were young, wild and free. We both had a passion for photography, languages and traveling. Today, we are both happily married to foreigners: she moved to the US, I moved to Canada. She managed to turn her love for photography into a full-time home based business and I couldn’t be more proud of her. I love her and I think everyone should hear about her and what she does.

THE ARTIST BEHIND RETRO LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY SAYS HI

nastasia buttonShe says: “Hi! I’m Nastasia, a 26 year old photographer based in sunny Orange, California. Photography has always been a big passion of mine, and after growing a nice collection of photographs from all my travels, I decided to start an Etsy shop in the summer of 2011. What started as a side hobby of selling some fine art prints has since grown into a full time business that I run from my home studio. My art can now be found on multiple mediums such as Iphone cases, pillow covers, photo wood blocks and jewelry. All of these products are  handmade by me with lots of love!”

Summer Is Finally Here!

Sigh…Teething Rant

 
She’s teething.
My poor little one has been going through a lot of pain over the last five days and I am starting to wonder if it will ever stop. She hasn’t had a good night sleep for days, she hardly naps anymore, won’t eat much, and fusses a lot (etc.). It breaks my heart to see her in so much pain. She is a very easy baby so I can tell right away when something is wrong.
I am beyond exhausted. I take my hat off to single parents! Parenting with my husband is so much easier but I guess at the end of the day, you do what you have to do.

London: My First Trip Away From Baby

I haven’t been separated from my baby daughter since she was born, and this weekend will mark a milestone. I am going to London with my BFF for three days. We have known each other since we were girls, and we have been going to London for years. I moved in London at the age of 20 and then again in 2009 to attend university. We know London well enough to go for very short visits and skip the sight seeing. We shop til we drop, we dance like no one’s watching , and we go home happy.

But it is going to be very different this time…I am a mother, and I have a tiny little one who will be wondering where her Mama is.  My heart hurts at the thought of being away from her for so long…I even thought of cancelling but I need to do this.

It is going to be lots of fun and I will take a million pictures !

How did you survive your first trip away sans baby?
