  32. Heather

    Beautiful photos! I have the same camera as you, but I never seem to get quite as good pictures as you. Can you tell me, what settings do you use to get the foreground in focus and the background so blurry? I would really appreciate it!

    You have a very lovely family and I enjoy following your blog. Thanks for uplifting my day!

  33. you always have such awesome pictures!!!!


  34. Hayley

    you have a beautiful family! I especially love Eleanor's little feet on the swing! Aren't baby feet just the cutest? And I am definitely trying that puff pastry recipe when I come home from college this weekend! It looks to die for :)

  35. Kate

    Your family just looks so perfect! I love the images, your photography is just stunning. Hope you have a wonderful week! x

  37. Oh my my where did you get Eleanor's shoes? They are so lovely. I would like to find a pair for my little girl.

  38. SL

    my favorite thing is kingley's expression in the last photo!

  39. Hannah

    i don't think that it is fair, that the trees in DC are this beautiful and in Munich they are just boring and without any kind of flower.
    Eleanor looks so cute. i love watching my neighbors kids walking up and down the street with their parents and the motivation they have to stand up everytime they fall. Just love it!

  40. I think this is the most casual looking we've seen Josh!

  41. Jen

    looks like a fun weekend! love the beautiful blossoms! best part about spring :)

  42. Catt

    Oh my goodness, little Eleanor's Nike shoes!! And now you have me craving some chocolate glazed sprinkled donuts!

    Looks like a perfect weekend :)

  43. Oh Eleanor – so adorable! Thanks for sharing your puffed pancake recipe again Naomi, I was telling my husband about it and he got so excited, I actually came on here to find it again! Have a great week! x

  44. It must feel good to have so many people telling you how beautiful your daughter is. Not every baby is beautiful, cute maybe, but not beautiful and Eleanor is just stunning.

  45. Katie

    Beautiful pictures! Especially love the one of Kingsley!

  46. …and your baby girl is the prettiest blossom!!!! Nice photos, thank u for sharing!!!

  56. where are the doughnuts from? baby and me are craving some for the holiday weekend!

  57. joyce

    I have used the puff pancake recipe and it has now become a staple in all of my brunches! Have you tried using them in muffin or cupcake tins? They turn into small bite size puffed pancakes, and I think your family, especially E. will love them!
