From years to months to days and now just hours…

The book.

Our book.

I remember emailing Peta through Facebook with my crazy idea. The cafe where I wrote the book proposal has long closed down. The babies I rocked in a pram next to me as I carefully crafted our big idea are now pre-schoolers. I recall the joy upon waking to an e-mail from our agent that Random House really REALLY wanted us. For some reason the travel chapter flowed so easily at a table in my new favorite cafe…that cafe is closed now too. So many walks home from dropping Gemma at school were done on autopilot as I had my nose in my phone reading and sending emails during the revision period. It is a different walk home now from a new school.. All those changes over the last 2+ years and one thing has endured…

Beyond Snapshots™

Tomorrow on the 20th of March in America,  it is officially born to the public.

This is just the start for Beyond Snapshots™! One of the first things we have coming up is a Twitter party. Keep in touch on our Facebook page for details!

If you have not already pre-ordered your copy or have not run out to the local book shop to pick one up, there are a few chances to win a book floating around the internet right now. Lensbaby (the lens I used for these shots) and Clickin Moms both have interviews and contests on their blogs! Each has a special extra you could win so check them out. We are also giving a way a signed copy on our own Facebook page, but you must enter to win it on my SESAME ELLIS Facebook page.

Life just flies by us… capture it beautifully.

  • Morgan - Did you know this is just what I have been looking for? This year I wanted to take less photos and have them be right sooc. I wanted to spend less time trying to save terrible photos. I have about ten random sites bookmarked with tutorials on various photography elements, but they’re not all in the same language. There’s no flow, and I don’t ever have more than about 20 minutes to sit down and look at them, so I keep starting in the same spot. This book shall be my perfect solution. Thank you.March 21, 2012 – 5:38 amReplyCancel
