    Hi all… I am back! From a relatively short photography hiatus (about 12 months), but a supremely long blogging hiatus. Tiny D ain’t so tiny anymore..nope, he’s a full blown kid.

    What better way to start my premmie blog than with a few words for the little cricket who has inspired this entire project… Tiny D himself – my little 29 weeker. I already did a piece on him for my Bare Image Blog a few months back which you can check out on the Bare Image... Read more »
