Happy Friday. Must be time for your weekly dose of Yorkies in the Wild (I know it’s been a while). For this shoot Chewie was sandwiched between my camera and a picture of outside. That’s how we like to do the outdoors in these parts. Climate controlled and without insects.
We are super excited to release these photos today in our Etsy shop! Head on over and check them out. Favorite them, buy them, pin them, stare at them, etc. The holidays are quickly approaching, so keep in mind your fellow dog lovers out there. Over the next several weeks we will be releasing new Yorkies in the Wild prints each Friday.
Model | Chewbacca the Yorkie, age 6, 4.5 pounds
Photo Shoot Soundtrack | Rolling in the Deep, Adele
Feel free to suggest your own captions in the comments. Chewie wants to hear what you have to say. You can check out previous editions of Yorkies in the Wild in the tab up top.
It just sort of worked out that the little guy has a skeleton costume for Halloween complete with an awesome, creepy skull hat. He says a skeleton seems terribly fitting as a commentary on the state of his mother’s breast milk. In addition to his grasp of irony at a mere 5 months, it is the perfect costume to celebrate Dia de los Muertos this weekend!
We are way behind on our altar to celebrate the lives of our loved ones that have passed , but we have until midnight tonight to gather our symbols and thoughts, and through the weekend to reflect. I especially love the traditions of Dia de los Muertos now that we have a little one, because it’s important for me to create times and places for him to get to know all about his grandfather, and all the important people we have lost, who are part of our lives forever. Though I understand the importance for some of visiting a cemetery, I find a celebration of life and memories so much more warm and rewarding than visiting a headstone.
Wishing you a wonderfully spooky Halloween and a fulfilling Dia de los Muertos with your loved ones!
Here’s a wee bit of cuteness and warmth from all of us at Sequined Asphault Studio and CawfeeGuy Knits to help you get through your chilly, fall Monday.
Life as a new Mom has taken the business in exciting directions that I’m excited to share with you. We’ve got some great fall marketing coming to you for our friend, CawfeeGuy, who is busy knitting for you as we speak. You need something fabulous and warm to wear as you wait for the bus, or something wonderful for a loved one to unwrap this holiday season.
CawfeeGuy’s Etsy site includes some great ready to wear accessories. Or you can stalk CawfeeGuy Knits on Facebook until you’re ready to exercise your PayPal account. Hat, gloves and blanket above are all courtesy of CawfeeGuy. Baby (not for sale) by LaLa and Dug.
In other exciting news, my very own Sequined Asphault Studio shop, showcasing my Abandoned project, is almost ready to open! I’ll be doing some giveaways here on the Blog and through Facebook in the month of November, so keep an eye out. Feel free to message me or leave a comment if you’d like a special email when the shop opens.
Stay warm xoxo
Little Miss A is much more excited the second time around about this whole tooth thing. And it’s certainly not difficult to get her on board with the whole fairy situation. So here she is showing me loose #2.
And how bout that magenta feather in A’s hair? I’d love to run right out and get myself one today. In purple, of course.
Very recently, it was like my birthday all over again here at Sequined Asphault Studio (I mean, if I had birthdays anymore, which I don’t). The very same week I got to guest blog over at MirrorMirror, I decided on a couple of new ultra exciting camera lenses and ordered the first (with much prodding and many assurances from the gang about laying out that much money for the good of my craft).
And Tricia, who has always been one of my biggest cheerleaders, kindly assented to me coming over and testing out the new glass on 2 of my most favorite wee ones, A and Chase.
Even though it’s a totally new way of shooting for me, and after the fact there are definitely lessons learned, I’d say we got a few keepers in the bunch.
