Let’s face it, Mamas--the baby photo shoots happening today are nothing like when we were younger! JCPenny photo studio days are over. There’s no more buying an outfit the day before or simply having a parent take a photo of you on your special day & waiting to get it developed when there’s enough time to do so! Nowadays, many Mamas are hiring a personal photographer to capture those precious moments with their babies and the pressure is on!
We’re talking 2-3 outfit changes per session and props---lots of props! Anything from banners, wreaths, and baskets to chairs, personalized hats, and hair bows. There’s even a point when we change the scenery, the first part of the session is held indoors, and the rest is outdoors! Am I right?
It’s insane, but I love it, and wouldn’t change it for the world!
So how do we personalize and be original?
You don’t want to do the same thing your best friend did with her son? Or your sister did with her daughter? So how do you make it original? This is always a struggle and something I along with many Mamas spend so much time thinking about to try to make your child’s photo shoot special. After all, we’ll never get a re-do of these photos, right?
After hours and hours of searching for the perfect outfit, blanket for the outdoor session, props for the indoor session, the list goes on--- I found The Kinsley Collection's adorable Monogrammed Moccasins! I was tired of all of the fancy shoes, half of the time, my daughter wouldn’t wear shoes anyways! Most of the items I buy for the photo shoots, my daughter wears once, and I never use them again. But moccasins? Who doesn’t love a good pair? And thanks to the elastic backing on the shoe, they’re not so easy for my daughter to rip off! Can I get a round of applause?
Why Monogrammed Moccasins?
The Kinsley Collection offers moccs that are easy to walk in, leave room to grow, and most importantly, provide safety & protection for those wobbly walking babes we have running around! I love that not only did I use these in this sweet photo shoot, but my daughter actually wears them daily! I chose the gold with black because they go with almost all of her outfits! And can I just say how I LOVE that they can be personalized? How many photo shoots have you seen with personalized moccasins? Exactly!
One more thing!
I’m someone who truly enjoys gift giving! The possibilities are endless with these moccs from the Kinsley Collection. I’m already thinking about who I can give a cute pair to?! I know a little girl who will soon become a big sister! I know a couple of babes turning the big one soon. I am looking to have another baby sooner than later (fingers crossed), what a cute way to announce the pregnancy!
Alright Mamas, whichever way you choose to rock your babe’s photo shoot, I know it will be great! Treasure these moments, they go so fast...but I know we all know this already.
