Little did I know that when I walked into target for “groceries” ,  that my day was about to get a whole lot better!!  While browsing everywhere ( except the tiny grocery section ) I went around & checked in with all the little lovelies that make my heart beat faster.  You know the ones, where you see it for months, picked it up to price check at least 3 times, you might have even done something fun like setting it in your cart.  A long time ago, all those things would have been somewhere in my house,  now I am a mom.  My only binge spending comes in sizes separated my months.  My impulse buys are validated by thoughts like ” But by the time his feet reach the floor, this will be GONE  FOR-EV-ER!

Not this day.  I was glancing around my favorite, the end of the isle… the back one, the narrow part.

“It’s a mistake, there is no way THAT is on sale”

 But I can see the sticker.

 ” yeah i bet it’s like $2 off reg price”

..was umm 54.99 …NOW 16.48?!?!

 “I bet it doesn’t work, there’s a hole somewhere”

It’s METAL, there’s no hole & I don’t know if I care if it works….so pretty..

••Photographer tip: want to put the child in the snow without distracting props, but not actually in the snow??

Prop: Baby Gus is on a clean white bathroom mat that has a rubber bottom.

Photoshop: Just clone around the sides and if there is a color difference pic up the color of the snow and paint that color on a new layer in “color mode”

[Be safe with little ones, endangering their health for a shot is wrong This was a 45 sec session & it was really too bright for my little polar bear cub!!]
