Take a look around. See anything new…anything different…anything interesting?
I bet you saw it as soon as you clicked the link to this post because my brand new header image is right there at the top in all it’s fabulous footwear glory!
You probably see some other new things too–like a whole new theme and a new sub-title. If you click around, you’ll see some other new things too. Like the “Meet Stiletto Momma” section to the right on the home page and the brand new “About” page at the top.
The newness I like best is that header image. I took the picture myself. I spent all afternoon selecting the right shoes, the right location, the right focus. But this picture almost wasn’t because somebody stole a little pink sneaker!
I started my photo session outside on the front porch in an attempt to get the best light.
My second location was a room inside just off the foyer–a mere four steps from that front porch. I gathered up as many shoes as I could and began staging them inside. On my second trip back, I noticed something missing.
In the 20 seconds it took me to walk back to the porch for the second load of shoes and return, one of my shoes (actually one of the Young One’s shoes) had vanished. I glanced around the room, but I couldn’t see it anywhere.
I retraced my steps to the porch…no pink shoe out there either.
I know I had two pink shoes. I have photographic evidence from location shoot one (see above)!
“Where’s my shoe?” I asked the quiet house.
In the hallway…”Where’s my shoe?”
In the dining room…”Where’s my shoe?”
In the kitchen…”Where’s my shoe?”
In the great room…”There’s my shoe!”
And next to the missing shoe, I could finally see the culprit–the Fluffy One, all four pounds of her had swooped in while my back was turned and made off with the one prop I needed for the perfect shot.
I finally persuaded her to give it back, but not without a chase around the living room. (For a fluff ball, she sure is fast!)
As you can see, I love my new header, and I love it even more now for the doggy story that goes with it.
What do you think of the changes at Stiletto Momma? I’d love to hear what you think.
