An exciting new venture in the works

Mom?  MOM?!  MOM!!!

Baby?  BABY?!   ALINA!!! 

Ah, the clamor at home when my kids and husband arrive from school/work while I am locked away in my studio enthralled in my designs. Someday my trio will say that their mom's creative efforts have made them stronger, more independent and that it inspired them to pursue their own passions. One can hope. Luckily the whole de Albergaria pack is engaged: Bernardo changes time zones without batting an eye. Dario, when not in school, is on a soccer field or two while his twin sister is either discovering her love for photography, sailing, at a juice bar, or "face masking" with friends (geez, is she only twelve?) And our blooming young artist is now following in her brother’s cleat-clad footsteps when not enraptured in her art. Even the dogs are less sedate, barking on a whim.

But last Wednesday I heard none of it as I was engaged in a fruitful photo shoot highlighting our upcoming venture with an exciting new company whose endeavors are changing women's lives every step of the way. It was a fun, invigorating day with a fabulous group of women playfully hard at work. The result? A myriad fantastic photos currently under wraps. But here are a few behind the scene shots to whet your appetite...

This exciting new enterprise will soon be announced so stay tuned!
