  • WELCOME!

    Hi there! Thank you so much for visiting the Kelly Anderson photo blog. That's me (in my pajamas) photographing my 3 little loves. As you can see it's the fun, intimate, everyday moments that I love to capture!

sun-kissed sweeties

 

Remember the sun faded pictures that I posted last month?  See this post if you are new to my blog.  I tried the same fade effects with some new pool pics. 

Take a look at the very sweet sun-kissed girls here…

Another playdate with M&M!   This time we went swimming and the girls had a blast.  I only took a handful of pics (what you see here is it) because I was just too busy keeping up with their action.  They ran circles through the splash park full speed ahead and jumped into the pool hundreds of times. 

Notice the ’3 feet’ picture in the bottom right corner?   The girls pointed this out and thought it was fun to see the number 3 on the side of the pool (they are both 3 years old).  I snapped a quick pic of 2 little feet as they were standing there checking it out.   

You see more sun faded effects here with beach pictures (I’m loving it right now so you see it in most of my summer-y pics).

do you want to make tutus?

Last year about this time I pulled off my first tutu creation (see above).  It’s a handy thing to know how to make tutus.  Soooo easy too.

Since this is post 100 on my blog I thought I would celebrate by sharing instructions.   Thanks for following my blog and enjoy the creating fun!

 

Make your own tutus

What you need to start:

an elastic band (measure to fit the waist of your little princess) , 6 inch tulle (on a roll) in desired color or combination of colors, needle & thread

* 1/2 inch elastic works well for babies and toddlers and 1 inch is great for older children – but I use whatever I have on hand…

 

Easy Peesy instructions:

1.  Measure your model and then take off about 2-3 inches of elastic(as you tie and tighten the tulle, it stretches the elastic out)…then sew the ends together in order to make the waistband.

2. Cut strips of tulle off the roll in the desired length. 

Note: Decide on the length you would like the tutu to be and double it.  If you want the tutu to be 10 inches, cut the strips into 20 inch strips. 

3.  At this point, you simply tie knots around the elastic in a loop knot, alternating directions (and alternating colors, if you wish).  Make sure to tie the knots really tight.  Also, make sure you scrunch your tulle together really well so the tutu is full.

4. When you are finished, fold the strips over so they are pointing the same direction. Fluff and wear!

 

I know there are increasing numbers of visitors to this blog each day – thanks for following!  I would love to hear from you.  Comments are always welcome!

Many thanks!

 How perfect is this location for some bubble blowing fun?  You would never believe it but we honestly just happened upon this awesome site while driving around on a scavenger hunt (looking for color).  I was so happy that I packed bubbles along for the session (what a lucky coincidence).
