{just a slingin'}

we have a wonderful giveaway on the blog today courtesy of
keri meyers of keri meyers photography

Keri is a professional newborn and children's photographer just outside of Seattle, Washington. Being a newborn photographer, she is always looking for new and fresh prop ideas. She wanted to create something that fit her personal style and photography needs.
Keri searched for the best products to create her design. After much consideration, she came up with something that is fun and photographs beautifully. Each hanging newborn sling includes a sewn-in padded support bar, so no slipping will occur. Each hanging newborn sling is made with plenty of fabric for a parent or assistant to get a good grip while supporting baby in the sling. You cannot be too safe when you are working with newborns!


Keri enjoys searching out new and fun fabric for her slings to share with her customers. If you don't see something that strikes your fancy here, please feel free to send Keri a message to request a custom order.

Store website: http://newbornslingsbykerimeyersphotography.bigcartel.com/

    How Generous is Keri?! This is the second time I've entered a contest to win one of her slings. Last time I said I wished I had the lavender, this time I wish for the apricot! Been admiring a recent shoot Keri did with the apricot sling and it is amazing! Thanks to all of you for your generosity :-) xx
