a babywearing giveaway

i'm SUPER excited about this giveaway. if you've been here a little bit you know that i love taking pictures. most of what i post are sessions with clients. but you also know that i love being a mom- and so the next thing to frequent this blog are tidbits of my life with my baby...

some of you started following along with my pregnancy documentation and then others came when i participated (and later was one of the winners!) of sakura bloom's sling diaries.

this giveaway brings it all together- my love for photography and my love for documenting precious moments between momma and baby.

so.... what is the prize to be won here? well, none other than a SAKURA BLOOM SLING! yes, you read that right. the lucky winner of this giveaway will have their very own brand new pure linen sling in organic maple.

and.... better yet, if you are local to utah- you will also win a free babywearing photo session!

(details to the photo session at the end of the post)

  22. I've been a long-time follower of your blog. I just pulled out a cheapo sling I got as a promotion and carried my son around in it today. I like carrying him in theory, but the sling I have cuts into my shoulder. I'd love to carry him more often since he's too big to tote around in an infant carseat and I think he's happier by my side, but I can't fit this gorgeous Sakura Bloom sling into my tight budget. Hope I win!

  53. Stop it stop it stop it. This is dreamy. =) For my first comment/entry, I can only say that I love IMAGINING wearing my baby in a sling. Little guy or gal is still several months away from making an appearance. It just seems like such a great way to foster closeness with both mom and dad, while also leaving your hands free to take care of other things. Glorious.

  64. I follow your blog! I love wearing my baby because I know she feels safe and secure and I love being able to share my day to day activities with her. I've always loved wearing my babies, but after almost losing our second child I gained a greater apperciation of this small window of opportunity in our children's life where we can literally bring them anywhere we go with ease, and create a stronger bond that will ideally last and strengthen in the years to come.
