Rose Red


In all our quest of greatness, like wanton boys, whose pastime is their care, we follow after bubbles, blown in the air.” John Webster

Z was fretful and whiney.

I was on the phone.

Not a good combo.

So I squitred some soap and water in a paper cup, added a straw, and blew some bubbles around the house. (My father’s creative solution for us when we ran out of the good bubbles!) Z got quiet, played with bubbles, and I took these photos while on the phone too. So this photoshoot lasted maybe 10 minutes? Yay for speaker phone!

Wiping up the soapy bubbles also indirectly cleaned the floor.

This red vintagey dress is from Nana from Behbud, a place in Karachi, Pakistan that sells the most adorable baby clothes and empowers women in the process – the dresses are tailored for itty bitty skinny mini Pakistani kids which means Z got a nice ribbon, buttons, embroidered collar, and more!

(She also got a new haircut, which means saying goodbye to rubberbands, and hello to clips!)

A few of the photos are duplicates, but newer ones do start at the end, laptop died mid uploading!

About Doodling Through Life

I doodle. All the time. Doodling helps me make sense of the world around me. When I doodle, whether it be swirls or figurines, I am transformed to a world in which my doodles live, and my thoughts become clear. My mind breathes. Through my art medium of pencils, paint, potting soil, and pixels, I thrive. I am a teacher and have taught 2nd grade in Fulton County Schools in Atlanta, Georgia for 4 years. I am currently a Stay-At-Home-Mommy to a ___ daughter (she was born in June 2010—you can do the math !) and a ___ preschooler (she was born November 2012), an an infant (August 2017) who is exploring my creative outlet via the aforementioned 4 P’s! So far, I’m an author whose book Lailah’s Lunchbox was published in 2015 via Tilbury House Publishing. I have 2 new picture books projected for 2019: Amira's Picture Day (Holiday House, 2019) and Let Me Show You The Way (Eerdmans, 2019)! I’m an Atlanta based children-family-lifestyle photographer on weekends. Thank you for stopping by!
