Well, friends, we made it through another week! And this was a particularly memorable week–one of my closest friends in Omaha gave birthday to a big, beautiful baby boy yesterday. I’m especially giddy this morning because I get to meet him today, and his parents asked me if I would take his first “professional” portraits next week. What an honor! I’ve been doing my research on newborn photography, learning the best positions for the baby and what equipment I’ll need. But if you have any experience photographing newborns, I’d love your suggestions.
On another note, do you enjoy these weekly round-ups? I know I don’t do them every week, and I’m debating whether to continue with them. I come across so much great content on the web every day that I want to share with you, but I’m wondering if these types of posts disrupt the “flow” of my blog. (Does my blog even have a flow?) I’d love to hear your thoughts, so please leave your comments below. Or email me if you prefer: pj at somewhereinmiddleamerica dot com.
And now, the list:
From honey-colored waves or a bleach-blond pixie, Michelle Williams can do no wrong with her hair.

I have never been to Maine, but I would go just for a McLobster.

Have you ever seen anything as darling as this embroidered cake? (PS: Happy birth day, Spencer!) (via Oh Happy Day)
Knitting takes too long; I need to learn how to crochet. (via Design*Sponge)
Again, please let me know what you think about this weekly series (or any of my posts). I’m in the process of considering a blog revamp and could use your good advice.
In honor of National Dog Day, I’d like to share a photograph of my friend’s dog Lola, who graciously allowed me to take her portrait the other day. She’s part beagle, part dachshund and part diva.
Isn’t she a beaut?
The snow on the trees this morning is a clear reminder that it’s still winter in Omaha, but at least it’s no longer pitch black outside at 4:30 pm. We’re slowly making our way towards daylight savings.
Look at how Adele from ModernEmotive transformed my photo from the previous post:
to something so much better:
Incredible, right? I am so impressed. Thanks so much, Adele! You are my Photoshop guru.
Here are some photos I took in January of snow in my backyard…
The second photo and the last one are my favorites.
