{Behind the Scenes} | modern kids photoshoot

Head on over to Sarah's blog for behind the scene images and a fun video of the Modern Kids|Beatrix NY photoshoot, taken via my iphone! What a magical place. I love how the butterflies turned out on the tree stump. The stump came from Sarah's own home, and it's now in my possession. Thanks Sarah!

I had so much fun helping her source props and style the kids. I can't WAIT for our next project. Check out the fun cardboard trees in the video...yes, Sarah and I made them. Stay tuned for more trees in the sneak peeks she's posting.

Lastly, Sarah found an amazing tree stump slice at Michael's, that I definitely recommend using as new idea for art in the nursery or elsewhere in the home. ;] Sorry no link. Michael's doesn't have it for sale on their website, but here's a similar product. I thought a kid's sillouette on the trunk would be fun...something like the image below? Sarah had the idea of laser cutting a graphic...sounds dynamite! The stump slice was used to photograph Beatrix NY's super cute logo. I love it! So creative.

Happy Tuesday!!

{Happy Friday} : Halloween!

Sorry for not posting much this week. My in-laws are in town for Halloween. 13 month old twins + costumes = ridiculous cuteness. :] I've been waiting for a year for this Halloween. Last year Everett + Amelia were 6 weeks old, fun but not as fun as babies running around with huge costumes. Can't wait to share photos of our weekend of Halloween adventures. Here's a sneak peek. Hopefully Amelia will enjoy it a bit more. :]

Next up: Photo Shoot with Sarah for Beatrix New York, a company that creates cool, contemporary accessories for a new generation of kids & mums. I met with Sarah and Claire today to discuss the locations and props for the shoot. Super excited about the shoot since it involves little kids, cute products and nature inspired photography. Those of you with kids should definitely check Claire's website out. The lunch boxes, roller bags, backpacks and thermoses are so stinking cute and a must for this years gift from Santa. There are some new products coming out soon! All I can say is bears, whales, and robots. Can't wait to show you progress shots! You can check out Modern Kids Blog for updates. Stay tuned! And last but not least, Pinterest! Have you heard about Pinterest? If not, you should definitely check it out. It's a social network catalog. Perfect for you design savvys out there. So addicting, so be careful! :] Here's a snap shot of one of my boards "Things I Love".
