This little miracle surprised us in all ways! Totally not planned, timing isn’t the best but that doesn’t matter, this baby is super welcome!!!
So after finding out and the initial stressful trimester, the fun period can start. With first finding a way telling all our family and friends. Really quickly I came up with this photo idea, only thing I needed was a tripod. So after that came in the first sunny morning we went out for some family photo fun. We had a blast, trying all different things, and both got a good workout out of it! Me running back and fort to set the timer (on my wishlist is a remote control now ;-)) and hubby for lifting our little prince and keeping little princess make funny and cute moves.
First we needed to see where we had to stand, so this cute test photo came out of that:
After we where happy with the photo with the tripod we let the kids have a little picnic on pink and blue blankets, a other idea I had. But we loved the other one a little more. But as you can see they had fun there too
Both of the kids are super excited for a new little brother or sister to join them Around June 2016. Specially our little princess is super excited, she couldn’t get enough of the video I made from the 12 week ultrasound and had a bunch of questions. And the baby is already spoiled with lots of kisses and cuddles. Super nice to experience her awareness of a baby growing in my belly.
With the wings I was super lucky that Kim Ebbets took the pictures. As much as I love taking pictures of my kiddos I am not even close to what she can do with the camera. But doesn’t mean I can’t gave it a try. Besides it was super fun to do!
Both my kids loved helping me out and at the same time exploring the park we where at. Elisa even took some nice photo’s with my phone to help out and allot of photos with her toy camera.
The corduroy skirt and super hero skirts both have a elastic waist band. My little girl loves those skirts because she can put them on by herself. At this age she really wants to do everything so she has allot of those skirts in her closet and they are always a favorite.
The vests can be worn either way. It is nice for those in between days where a jacket is to much and nothing just a bit chilly.
When Kim Ebbets asked me if I could help her out with an idea for a photo shoot that involved 3 cute little girls wearing wings I didn’t need any time to think it over. I was all in! This was the perfect moment to finally fulfill my dream of creating my own label. I love to work with other creative people and the brain storm process was super! The positive energy of sharing ideas you normally don’t think of on your own. I loved every minute of it!
After Kim shared her ideas with me and her mood board on Pinterest I started creating my drawings for the clothes. It took some nights with me waking up and thinking of something better, newer, and changes here and there. After a visit to the fabric store I started working on the wings. We decided that I would work with combination of dollies and pastel cotton fabric. I love dollies and was super excited to work with that.
The day of the photo shoot was closing up and I was getting a bit nervous……What will they think, will it fit and will I finish in time….. Last minute changes happened of course after a night of tossing and turning. But on the day itself I was satisfied with the skirts and wings. I really hoped Kim would be too. Of course I was super nervous, first time I made something for somebody else to wear besides my own kids and the first creations under my new label. Kim and the girls loved it! They loved twirling around with the skirts and the wings and it was a super fun photo shoot!
The photo’s are stunning!!! Really Kim you’re a true artist with your camera! We already know that because we where lucky we had a change to do our maternity and newborn shoot from our little prince with you. The way you work with the lighting and with 3 toddlers with a mind of there own is inspiring. It was a wonderful afternoon and even tho my little princess was started to get tired in the end she didn’t want to it end at all.
Really want to thank her for the beautiful pics and the trust she put in me for working out her idea, thanks Kim! If anyone is looking for a top notch photographer in the Bay Area, head on over to http://www.photosbykime.com/.
