A Day In Our Lives

December 6, 2015 • KidsLife

going through all of the photos KELLY STEENLANDT took of our family that one weekend in august, it seems like spent so much more time with us than those few hours. it might have something to do with juliet’s dozen or so outfit changes though… i just wanted memories of her in all of my favorite little outfits!

kelly let us go about our daily rituals, casually chatting with us while we changed juliet’s diaper, while we fed her bananas or tried to keep her entertained while the other parent was fixing her bottle of milk (girl has my lack of patience for sure). from time to time she’d ask us to spend a little more time on something or do something a little slower than usual to give her more time to capture the moment, but she never directed us or asked us to take awkward poses. i think that is why i like these pictures so, so much – because they show who we really are and what our lives are really like right now.

these pics were all taken on saturday, before the sunset walk we took (of which i shared snapshots right HERE). the last little chapter of this story will be dedicated to sunday morning, when we really tried our very best to have some family shots taken (we failed miserably at posing, kelly succeeded wonderfully in coaxing a few good shots from us). stay tuned for that!

Welcome Juliet

April 7, 2015 • Kids

either you are following me on instagram or you smart birds figured it out all by yourselves, but you probably know why i went m.i.a. all of a sudden. on march 26 we welcomed our baby girl juliet a week earlier than planned – though i now understand how little planning is actually involved in the concept of parenthood.

i’m taking a little break from work and the blog to enjoy some quality time with my little family, but i do have some fun things planned for you in april. check back soon for a few interviews with kick-ass ladies who also happen to be pretty rad moms, and for some give-aways generously donated by a few of my favorite baby brands. i’m still posting on INSTAGRAM regularly – because babyspam is just too delicious to resist – so if you want, you can always follow me there for more regular updates.

some details in the snapshots above // juliet lightbox custom made by JVB DESIGN // marble crackled blanket by MAD ABOUT MINI // tiny little gloves by OEUF // white blanket with black stars by CARLIJNQ // black polka dot bunny by JELLYCAT // grey polka dot bunny by NOGARAVIN // marble pacifier and black and white jersey blanket by ELODIE DETAILS // paper bag with bunnies by STUDIO BRENSTIJL // white and pink dresses by ZARA MINI // black and white polka dot dress by GAP KIDS // black and white grid moccassins by MINIMOCKS // cream mary janes by CLIC! // grey camouflage booties by little indians via JUNE AND JULIAN // grey changing mat cover by FUNDAS // white bunny bath cape by PETIT BATEAU
