I shouldn’t really call these FAQ’s because it’s not like I’m asked these questions frequently.  But, I do get asked them from time to time so, for inquiring minds…

1. What type of camera do you have?

In short, a Canon Rebel XSi.  In long, see here.


2. Where did you get the month stickers used in the monthly photo shoots?

Etsy!  There are lots of different options of monthly onesies or stickers on Etsy.  I loved having the stickers because I didn’t have to worry about a certain size onesie fitting at the right time.  Plus, I think I only had to get 3 onesies for the whole year!  I got maxwell’s stickers from Belle’s Buttons and Spencer’s from Little Baby Bumblebee.  I loved taking the monthly photos and watching Maxwell grow.  I then displayed all of the photos at his first birthday party.  It was so fun to see how much he had changed and I can’t wait to do the same for Spencer.


3. Where did you get the names Maxwell and Spencer?

It’s a family name.  You can read about it here.  And, yes, we call him Maxwell…or Buddy…or Pumpkin Pie…or Chubbo.

Spencer isn’t a family name…at least I didn’t know it was when I picked it!  Robert and I just liked it and then I found out it’s actually my grandmother’s grandmother’s maiden name!  It was meant to be.


4. How did you make those applique shirts?
