Hey Hannah! I ran across your site through Amy Middaugh's site. It is beautiful!!! Your children are absolutely breathtaking. I was looking through your film pictures on flicker. My husband is a photographer and he took me out for my first film shoot on Saturday. It was fun and has peeked my interest. It was fun to see your pictures! I hope you all are doing grand!

So glad I found you via Orangette.

Huffmania is such a happening place. Can't wait to check out your archives.

Me too re: 'smile more'...I have a 3 yr old and a 1.5 yr old and the 1.5 yr old was colicky for 12 mos, and well, you're a mom, you know, despite the deep love I was in a lot of pain and my smile took a back seat to her sister, 'survival'.
