The Dance Studio, Perch A.  The ballet barre in here makes my heart sing.  I miss ballet SO MUCH!  I’m sure my dance teachers would laugh at that now… because I AM SURE… I did lots of complaining in class back then.  🙂

Yoga and ballet classes from 5 weeks old and up!  I think I may have to take a class with my little guy Dominic!

The High Tea Room!  UM. Seriously.  I loooove this room!

And it is available during the day for moms using the daycare service or if you have a child in class to do some of your own work! Can you imagine working in a room this beautiful?!   I think I will be taking this offer up more than a few times!  Drop the kiddos off for a few hours of play and fun while I edit, or answer emails or even meet a few clients to sign contracts!  Yes. please.

And it is set up for High Tea from 3-6pm daily!!

The Hatchery, on-site child care!  This room, kinda makes you just take a deep breath and say Aaahhhhhh when you walk in.

Aiden – Fresh 48 Newborn Session

Congrats to new parents Jessica & Shawn!

I got to take some photos of Mr. Aiden when he was just about 14 hours old at St. Lukes Hospital!  I love documenting fresh 48 hour sessions.  Even though I was here just 5 short months ago, it sure does make me have newborn fever!
