Another birthday party is in the books! I have the BEST time planning events for my family, and I have to say… with two little kids + the holidays, I got a seriously late start this year when it came to deciding what I wanted to do for Indie’s birthday, but as soon as I saw a variation of this theme on Pinterest, I knew it was the perfect one! Read on for party planning inspo, to hear all about the vendors I used and how much fun was had by all!Continue reading “Indie’s Enchanted FOURest Birthday Party!”
Indie’s Enchanted FOURest Photoshoot by The Deerwood Co!
You all know I LOVE a strong, cohesive theme and for every birthday Indie has had, I have incorporated the party theme into her formal portraits! I don’t know how much longer I’ll do this… do people do formal photoshoots for birthdays beyond age 5? I barely know anyone who does them past the first year! But here we are…. four years in, and I’m going strong – because I cannot deny that I’m extra.Continue reading “Indie’s Enchanted FOURest Photoshoot by The Deerwood Co!”
The time has FINALLY come!!!! I am SO excited to walk you through all the details of Stevie’s big, groovy, 70’s hippie-inspired first birthday bash! If you’ve been following me for some time now, you know how much I get a thrill from planning “larger than life” events and seeing my visions come alive right in front of my eyes. It seems like each event I do gets bigger and bigger so I guess it’s safe to say I have “no chill” – but all the more reason for me to get this post up and running so that you all can benefit from the inspo, the party planning tips, and of course – the local NJ vendors! Read on to get the lowdown and to view the gallery, shot by Little Nest Portraits NJ and edited by yours truly!Continue reading “STEVIEPALOOZA 2022!”

Hospital Bag Checklist!
Finally getting around to showing you guys what I packed in my hospital bag ahead of meeting Baby Sis! I want to preface this post by saying that, as someone who prioritizes photos and blogging, I probably pack way more than what’s actually necessary…. so take this all with a grain of salt. The reality is that all your baby really needs is YOU (and an outfit to go home in!). Focus on the essentials for yourself – what will make you comfortable – and the rest will fall into place. It’s amazing how much the hospital actually provides you with… but some people just prefer to have their own “stuff” – and I’m one of those people! I also packed a bag like this when I had Indie and I learned very quickly that NONE OF IT MATTERS. Her birth and NICU stay made all plans go out the window and 90% of my “bag” was literally useless with the exception of a change of clothes. Do not lose sight of this! It’s so important to remember why you’re there: To get baby Earthside safe and sound. The rest is nominal. Read on to check out my full packing list this time around!Continue reading “Hospital Bag Checklist!”

I can’t believe the time has come for another maternity photoshoot. This pregnancy has seriously flown by (so much so that I haven’t even written about it on this blog, now that Instagram has become my predominant form of posting) – but there’s no better place to share a huge gallery than in this space right here, so let’s get cracking on THE shoot of all shoots…. what has become hands down my favorite photography session I’ve ever done.Continue reading “2021 Maternity Photos With The Deerwood Co!”
