Calm Cradle provides nature photography for the restful nursery and inspired home. Click here for the company's background story and vision. Once life settles down a bit, I also plan to provide limited newborn and maternity portrait sessions in the Raleigh-Durham area.
For now, Calm Cradle offers a variety of nature prints in specific sizes (typically 8x10, 11x14 and 16x20 inches or 8x8 and 12x12 inches), though I work to accommodate custom sizing requests whenever possible. To keep things simple as I start up, I’m not yet offering routine matting, framing or other types of artwork. But shoot me a note if you have something specific in mind, and I’ll see if I can make it happen.
This blog will focus on the concept of creating a calming environment for you and your wee ones. I define environment loosely, so my posts will likely run the gamut from design how-to items, such as choosing an appropriate mat and frame for your image, to thoughts on finding some serenity in your busy home life. And of course, I anticipate some general musings on motherhood, since I’m very much in the thick of it right now and know many of you are, too.
I also plan to add a few regular columns, including:
Featured Photo: Will give the back story and a discount on a particular image.
Around the House: Will showcase how customers and I have displayed my images or other design projects in our homes.
Ideally I’ll be posting a few times a week. But the clock is ticking down to the arrival of Baby Girl #2, and I’m sure we're in for at least a few months of chaos as we adjust to life with two little ones. So please don’t give up on me! I’d love to start a dialogue on this blog about the process of creating nurseries and homes that serve as peaceful, thought-provoking refuges for our families.
