May12 Family in Virginia 2015

I just love at home newborn sessions.  This beautiful family welcomed their new baby Mia and documented new life in all it’s blooming glory at their home in Northern Virginia. Photographed on film full of intimate moments and a peek into their modern nursery with pops of color, makes it perfect for a feature on this beautiful spring day.

May07 Sweet Shoppe 2015

“What’s sweeter than a Sweet Shoppe? A Sweet Shoppe themed 1st Birthday!  Kaitlyn’s 1st Birthday combined the pretty pastels of a Parisian Sweet Shoppe and the fun and loving nature of a very special 1st Birthday at Chubby Cheek Cafe in City of Industry, CA .

There was no stone left unturned when Skybox Event Productions planned out every pretty detail of this birthday.  From the milk carton Goodie Boxes and the paper Bakery and Ice Cream Truck centerpieces, to the Patisserie Window backdrop of the dessert table (with the prettiest and most delicious treats from Merely Sweets!), mini party hats for kids, and all signage created by Little Ink Print.

The party kicked off with a delicious buffet of sandwiches, salads, pasta, and more!  Ice Box Creamery was there with an adorable Ice Cream cart that was ready to serve up some tasty and cool treats to all in attendance.

Kaitlyn’s family and friends were able to enjoy making their own photo Flipbooks with the help of Flipbook Frenzy.  They also had fun with cute and quirky Caricature drawings of themselves done by Toon Upz.

There is no sweeter way to spend a Sunday, than by celebrating the 1st Birthday of a special little girl.”

May01 Jacadi Le Bapteme 2015

Jacadi – the Paris based kids fashion brand, just recently released a line of clothing for Baptisms.  I think everyone still has their beautiful dress or outfit they were baptized in because it is such a special occasions. It is one of those things we’ll pull out of a keepsake box in twenty years and sob over the lovely memories and wonder how they could have ever been so small. It’s worth buying something absolutely timeless and perfect. Maybe even turn it into an heirloom piece to be passed down through the generations.  So if you’re looking for the perfect piece that will be treasured forever, you’ve found it.

Apr30 Santiago’s Nursery 2015

Christie is an interior designer in Florida and thus has created a fabulous nursery for their new baby. Because of their small space they had to be creative to make the room comfortable, beautiful, easy to grow into and double as an office.  It’s a tall order but they did it perfectly.

“Making room for baby was a bit of a challenge in our 1,000 sq. ft apartment. We not only wanted to welcome our new baby with a cozy nursery, but we also had to incorporate a fully functional working home office for my husband.  We wanted to create a space with a clean modern vibe with a little edge that Santiago could grow into. We decided to go with a custom bold graphic pattern as a feature wall in shades of gold, grey, and white.  It was very important to us that the pieces we selected would not only work aesthetically in the space, but would also change to accommodate Santiago’s future needs. For example, the Stokke Crib transforms from a crib to a toddler bed and the glider fully reclines with a foot rest ideal for nursing.” – Christie
