Things I support: moms, wine, cheese, terrible pop music, breastfeeding, cloth diapering, baby-wearing, freedom of choice, shopping locally.

Things I do not support: mean girls, jet skis, hate, fat-free chips, bashing other people’s parenting, Sarah Palin.

A little more, for those who are curious:
I am Suzanne, age 35, a New England native who was raising in a military family and then married into one as well. My husband Evan is a Senior Chief in the Navy. We met while I was at college getting my degree in underwater basket weaving communications at the College of Charleston in South Carolina and he was going through training to run nuclear reactors. No, he does not glow in the dark. After a couple of transfers, we ended up in Eastern Connecticut where we got a dog, a Jeep Cherokee, and a house. Once we ran out of grown-up things to buy we decided it was about time to work on the bebehs. Now we share our 100+-year old Craftsman house with our children Evan III, Caroline, Lincoln and Finnegan; our dog Brutus; our cat, Blushes; about a million baby toys and several pounds of pet hair. I’m giving the SAHM thing a try – part desire, part necessity – and I use this blog as my own personal soapbox and brag book. In the fall of 2013 I launched my photography business, Ginger Snaps Pictures and now I work part time (although it feels like full time in the fall!) as a photographer. I specialize in lifestyle and family photography and this blog has become mostly a photo album of our own adventures.

Camera info (since I often look for this on other people’s sites):
Until November 2012 I shot with a Nikon D90, upgraded to a Nikon D7000 in December 2012, switched to full frame in 2014 (first on a D600 now on a D610). I sold my 600 recently and now shoot with a Nikon D750 for digital and an N80 I bought on Ebay for film.
Nikon 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-S DX
Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF
Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 SLD DG Macro Lens
Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX

I own none of those anymore. Now I shoot mostly with my
Sigma ART 35mm f/1.4
Nikkor 24-75mm f/2.8
Sigma 50mm f/1.4
Tokina 100mm macro f/2.8

I buy 90% of my camera equipment through Adorama, who I love and recommend. I wrote a post in 2015 about all my equipment, which you can check out here.


If you’re a company or small business who is interested in sending me stuff to review or give my readers please feel free to email me at bebehblog@gmail.com. My favorite color is pink, but I look best in blue. My very favorite things to write about and share are cute kid clothes, baby carriers, and camera equipment.

I use affiliate links through CJ.com sometimes, so if you click through my site and buy something I might get some pennies for your purchase.
