I was dying to photograph Sloane with my good friend, Karyn’s, daughter and son. And her home is just the icing on the cake! Loved this little mini-shoot.
Recently I was hired by Mini Style Blog as a lifestyle contributor and I couldn’t be more thrilled to work with such a great team. This particular shoot was for Anthem of the Ants and SoYoung. Getting to work with children’s brands is a lot of fun because I get to work with my own sweet daughter, Sloane. Here she is with her little friend Elena.
This past week, before the snow came, I went to take some photos of my best friend at what they call “the pit”. It’s a private residence that the owner has generously let me come take photos before. It’s basically a pit full of wood. He has chickens and is building a shed for pigs and other animals. When I took my kids they were able to feed the chickens and then check for eggs. It was definitely a fun afternoon for the kids.
The shirt that Sloane is wearing was graciously sent to us from The Bee & the Fox Co. It says Free as a Bird. Very fitting for this little spunky girl.
I know some of you have already seen Sloane’s big girl room via Mini Style Blog and Moms Best Network, but I haven’t posted it on my blog yet and I’ve added something new. I was contacted by Urban Wall Decals a few months ago to try out their wall stickers. I chose the little Batman decals because who says they are only for boys. I love them. They are very easy to work with and easy to take off when the time comes. It’s easy to add such a big statement to a room, but not feel like you’re trapped into something permanent.
The darling plus sign blanket was sent from my girl Shari from Spearmint Baby. Her designs and workmanship are extremely beautiful. And she has so many to chose from!
I love how her room has turned out. I kept it simple with some modern touches that can grow with her as she gets older.
This past weekend I took the kids up to the canyon to see the Fall leaves. It had just rained and everything smelled absolutely fantastic. Don’t you just love the fresh air after a rain storm? It’s like a fresh new start for each of us. It’s nice to step away from all our To-Do lists and just immerse ourselves in God’s creations.
My sister had introduced me to Duchess and Lion Co. and they generously sent Sloane a dress from their AW14 line. Isn’t it gorgeous! The quality and workmanship is unbelievable, let alone it’s beautiful to look at.
