Ah… summer camp! The place where so many fun summer memories are created which of course includes lots of time in the sun + swimming! We love this summer camp inspired fashion shoot by Katerina Venevskaya. Everything about these photos just smiles with sunshine + happy summer days. We can’t even begin to think that summer break is almost over so we will hold onto these images in our minds for a bit longer!
We have been long time lovers of all things paper and also the art of letter writing. We don’t take the time as much as we should to sit down and write a thoughtful note to our friends and family, but we hope to become better at making the time to do this. We also think it’s important to teach our little peanuts to do this and there’s no better way to get them excited about writing in general than with their own personalized stationery!
Minted is a fabulous resource for all your paper needs from holidays and birthdays to children’s stationery + journals. They bring the best in indie design from a global community of independent designers. You can choose from hundreds of stylish designs with customizable options + personalize a design to make it your own! We love the quality of their products and of course the ease of being able to quickly order them at home! Each design has different color options as well as different shape options for the cards. Rounded corners or scalloped edges finishes the cards off perfectly! You can even get coordinating address labels that really seal the deal! Each order comes with a package of outer envelopes delivered in an embossed white gift box.
Below are a couple of our favorite designs from Minted! With back to school just a couple short weeks away we are having fun writing some sweet notes to our little friends + letting them know we are thinking about them! We hope you will join us this fall and start this tradition with your little peanuts as well!
The weekend is done and Monday is here! To start things off we have yet another gorgeous maternity session to share with you. Little Lamb Photography submitted this romantic and oh so dreamy session shot in a field of Queen Anne’s lace. The scenery is perfection and the lighting is sublime! Maternity sessions are dreamy in there own right with glow from every mother and the pride you can see in every father’s eye. This one is no exception and we couldn’t love it more!
Friday is here and we are in full anticipation for the weekend! To help get you through the day we have a darling modern nursery to share with you captured by Julia Azcona Photography. We love the clean, modern lines and the bold, black and white contrasting colors they chose. The animal prints are the perfect touch to soften the look. This is definitely a room that will grow with sweet little Mila as she does.
It’s hard to believe it’s almost the end of July and we are starting to have back to school plans on our minds. We aren’t ready to give up our summer just yet and are still trying to live each day to the fullest. Of course that includes eating more than our fair share of popsicles, snow conies and ice cream! Our little peanuts have a serious sweet tooth and we can’t keep these summer treats in our house for very long. Lucky for you we are sharing one super easy homemade ice cream recipe that will knock your socks off (ok maybe flip flops off)! We used to be so intimidated by making ice cream because we didn’t have all the fancy equipment but this no churn ice cream doesn’t require all that and with just a few simple steps you can make your very own Blackberry + Honey + Sea Salt ice cream! Recipe below… enjoy!
– 2 cups heavy whipping cream
– 7 ounces (1/2 can) of sweetened condensed milk
– Seeds of 1 vanilla bean or 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
– 2 pints fresh blackberries
– 1/4 honey
– 1 tsp. sea salt
In a bowl, mash the blackberries and set aside. In a stand mixer with whisk attachment add whipping cream, sweetened condensed milk, honey, and vanilla. Whip until stiff peaks form. Gently stir in the mashed blackberries. Spoon the ice cream into a freezer safe container and freeze for 4 hours or over night.
Happy Monday to all of our lovely readers! We hope you had a great weekend and to start things off we have a gorgeous momma + daughter forest photo session captured by Maria Corona Photography to share with you. Sweet little Ava turned one and what better way to celebrate it than have some pretty pictures taken with her momma to forever document this fun time in life! We love the natural beauty and serenity of all these images. The green forest and the organic feel of the clothing were the perfect accents to these gorgeous girlies!
Well the weekend is almost here and to get you through the rest of the week we have an amazing family session to share with you. We are dying over the creative and playfulness of this shoot. Heather Roth did an phenomenal of capturing this darling family. We are absolutely crazy about the way they thought out of the box and used all the fun props with an added touch of glam. This is not your ordinary family photo shoot and we couldn’t love it more! To here from the photographer and her tips on making the most of your family session with kids head over here.
When it comes to picking a color for any room, you can never go wrong with a neutral color palette for both girls and boys. Catarina’s room designed by the incredibly talented team at Sissy + Marley is covered from head to toe in a delicate tan zebra wallpaper with touches of safari animal toys and decor throughout. Simple artwork, decorative pillows, and clean lines make for a minimal yet perfectly styled space. This dreamy + cozy room is perfect for any little peanut!
We hope everyone had a wonderful and playful weekend! We are back it and have a gorgeous garden maternity session captured by Carissa of The Graceful Light to share with you. The lush gardens combined with this beautiful momma create something very Mother Earth and we couldn’t love it more! The lighting is breath taking and taking just one look at this glowing momma can’t help but bring a smile to your face.
During the summer we pretty much live in summer dresses ranging from shirt dresses to light weight maxi dresses. It’s the perfect way to feel good (and like you actually got ready for the day) while still being comfortable and able to chase those little peanuts around the park or beach! We also can’t get enough of our Tailored Tote in Electric Citrus by our favorite designer, Petunia Pickle Bottom! Not only is this bag a hot color + pattern for summer we are obsessed with the shape! This tote easily doubles as a purse or diaper bag and is equipped with all the pockets you need! Check out our round-up of favorite summer dresses for mom below!
