Black & White Glamour!

My dear friend Alia, of Alia Morgan Photography is crazy talented.  She recently took newborn photos of my little Grayson and they turned out fantastic, like, I love them all.  

She was recently gifted an antique buffet that's been in her husband's family for quite some time.  So, like all good friends would do - we bartered services.  She takes pictures of my new little man ... and I paint furniture for her. Who doesn't love a good trade?!

We went back and forth on colors and ideas until we finally decided on a black and Annie Sloan's Old White color combo. Such a unexpected color choice and I love everything about it!

Here is how it turned out ... 

Simply beautiful. 

And ... I'll leave you with a few of the lovely photos she took of our Grayson.

Again, simply beautiful.  Make sure to visit her website and her facebook page!
