A sunny winter’s day in Newfoundland

In a world where I can mix plaid, sailboats, fake fur, and a hoodie – anything’s possible ; )

In Arnold’s Cove, Newfoundland.

    Love the photos! Love all the little footprints in the dusting of snow on the deck! Marshall must have had fun marching around in his funky plaid/sailboats/fake fur/hoodie/boots :)

    Love your photos of the little big man exploring. It brings back memories. Wish I could do it all over again. I would stop longer to enjoy their moment. I never comes back.

    Marshall Ace, you are a Freshly Pressed machine, and cute to boot :)

  8. I dress the same way but I don’t have the cute hat. Must get one for my adult son…he wanted one for Christmas….Enjoy the good weather days there….we seemed to have missed winter here in our corner of Southwestern Ontario…..

    Love the sailboats on the leggings! Pretty stylish! And I envy that hat. Looks so nice and warm.

    He totally ROCKS that look…wish I could do the same! But alas, fur and plaid on me would only lead others to conclude that I indeed belong in an institution…

    Baby-winter-newfoundland2 is my personal favorite. Love the perspective, the light and composition. Well done!

    But more importantly you have given your baby a VOICE.
    [I’m a baby. And a fashion blogger.]
    Laughing pretty hard half way around the world. Can you hear me? This is what the good stuff in life is made of.
    Thank you for sharing. Congratulations of being FP’d.
    Looking forward to your future post for sure.
    cheers

    He is a lucky, curious and intelligent boy, you can see that on those few photos. Bless to the parents of lucky children and, of course, to all children.

    Such beautiful photos! I am a WordPress photographer as well, so I absolutely love when I see posts like this! Great job.

    • Thanks so much Aaron – we certainly aren’t “photographers” on your level but we know when to find the good light and have cute subject matter :)

    I’ve always wanted to go to Newfoundland. I have been close several times, but now I want to take the CAT (If one goes there) over to visit. I’ll go in summer if you don’t mind. It looks too bloomin’ cold to be there right now.
    Nice photos, and a cute kid.

    • Big ferries – from Nova Scotia you can go:

      1. North Sydney to Port au Basques which is the quickest ferry journey (5-7 hours) but very far from the capital (900km), St. John’s

      2. Or you can take a 17-hour journey from North Sydney to Argentia, which is right near St. John’s.

      If you want to see the more of the island and go to Gros Morne National Park then option one is best :)

      Good luck!

    Wow!!! You take great pictures! I didn’t even have a camera when I was 3…and the ones you took of your self! Amazing!!! You must use a timer? Anyway, it’s good to see 3 year olds taking charge…your time has come….do it for the two year olds! They’re not quite awake yet…as you know….does Dad let you drive yet? Cause I think you’re ready…just say this: “DaDa, me steer…you do peddles…” trust me…it worked for me! Later Gator!

    I think this blog is mean to your poor kid…. Sure he is gorgeous and the clothes are super cute… but your making him like a zoo attraction and some beautiful things are so because they are private… like the life of your baby.
    You have the skills to create such a beautiful and popular blog… why do you need to publicly display your little boy as the medium…?

    Such great pictures, the fashion is great! I love it when kids put together the outfits we think wouldn’t go together and then when they are done they look so natural and cute! The senic pictures are wonderful and clear as well. You have a great eye for photography and your family looks so wonderful. Have a great winter and can’t wait to see what you post next. :)
