Pinhole Press Frames + A Giveaway!

11/05/2013


A few months ago we decided to have family photos taken. It seemed appropriate now that we have our two kids and, of course, dog. My expectations for how the kids would behave were fairly low. I mean we're dealing with a two and half year old and a one month old, you really can't raise the bar too high. Mila surprised me, she was jovial most of the time. Her brother. Not so much. We managed to "fake" it a bit though. See? All smiles. All the time. We don't cry, or fit or fuss in this house. ;)


My sweet friend Kierstin of Dear to My Art Photography (don't you love the name?) came with her assistant, and honestly snapped some of the most amazing photos. There are seriously so many more, but I'll spare you the onflux of kid photos (aren't they the cutest though? Aren't they)???


Naturally I wanted to display some of our favorites and found the cutest collection of three frames at Pinhole Press. You honestly can't get any more classic than black, wood and silver. I love how they look against the brickwork.

Now you want some good news? Pinhole Press is kindly offering one lucky reader of The Short and the Sweet of It $50 to spend towards a framed photo or two. They are seriously gorgeous frames AND you don't have to do any of the work of printing out the photo and driving to the store to pick up a frame. See? Win for everyone.

Christine D. | The Plumed Nest said...

well, i wouldn't mind seeing more photos, they are the cutest, yes, yes. ugh, i was just thinking the other day i have slacked, big time, in actually printing photos! the digital age has its drawbacks. framing a photo or two is something i must do soon whether i win this givaway or not!
