Trendy Tot Linkup

Posted by Lily Kay at 9:50 AM 8 comments
For todays Trendy Tot Linkup I wanted to post a few of my favorite pictures from this past month. I love the above pic of Baby Z holding on to her pet bunny. Dress is from Baby Gap last season and hat is from Janie & Jack.
I love the shorts with tights look! Add in a scarf and its unbearably adorable! Scarf and shorts and H&M. Shirt and boots are Zara. Tights are Circo from Target. Gorgeous scenery is Stinson Beach.

This photo is from a valentines photo shoot I did with Baby Z. Red knit beret is from Zara. Dress is from Etsy boutique The Jaded Boutique. Red lace bottom leggings are from The Childrens Place and Black Patent Bow mary janes are from Janie & Jack.
Lace dress is from Baby Zara. White tights are Circo by Target and purple ballet flats are by Baby Bloch.

XoXo,
Lily Kay and Baby Z

Photographing a Toddler: The Basics

Posted by Lily Kay at 10:05 AM 0 comments
Photographing my little toddler isn't an easy feat so I let nature take its course. I let her do things she enjoys..like getting to be naughty and stand on a park bench instead of sitting properly. I let her run, explore, search, dance...whatever her heart desires and then I just point and click.
Throw in some fun props that your toddler will enjoy. Baby Z LOVES ballons....so ballons it is.
Choose places that make for pretty or interesting backgrounds such as the park, a pond, your backyard...whatever you will enjoy seeing in your photographs. Play around with your lighting and focus and voila!

HopScotch...

Remember the days before computer games, Xbox games, Playstation games etc?? Kids were excited to buy Jacks, Sidewalk Chalk, Jumping ropes and the such? I want baby Z to be excited about those things. Sometimes simple is simply just better.

Turquoise scarf by H&M (last season).
Beautiful scenery by Stinson Beach, California.

Tiny Fashion: Little Yellow Jacket

Posted by Lily Kay at 2:33 PM 0 comments
Splurge!!
This luxurious yellow wool coat is one I had been drooling over since Janie and Jack released it about a month ago as part of their Classic Garden collection. However, Baby Z's size sold out unusually quickly given its almost $80 price tag. Its currently on sale though so check it out if you adore it as much as I do!

Steal!!
This yellow trench by Carters was a lucky find! Its not the same fabric or cut as the Janie and Jack twill coat but its just as equally cute! It also comes with a much more friendly price tag of $40 but is currently on sale for $26. You can bet I picked up this sunny yellow number as soon as my eyes spotted it!

Crewcuts Cute Dresses...

Posted by Lily Kay at 3:45 PM 0 comments
I recently discovered Crewcuts...and the adorable ladylike dresses they make for the little girls in your life. It was a 'ah' moment for sure. I may just have to test out Crewcuts and order a few pieces to see what their quality is like. If they are anything like their mother J. Crew, I am sure I will not be disappointed.

All pieces discovered here.

P.S. Sorry for the recent onslaught of annoyingly small photos. Blogger has suddenly decided I cannot post large pictures. This issue is being worked on and I hope to have it solved very soon!

The Duck Pond...

Posted by Lily Kay at 10:59 PM 3 comments
 Took Baby Z to the local duck pond/park today. Perfect way to spend a sunny February 1st.


 When it comes to photographing a 20 month old, its best to just let them do their thing. If they wander around, capture it. If they sit on a bench, if they run like crazy or even if they eat the bread you were supposed to be feeding the ducks...just capture it. Capturing the natural moments are some of my favorite photos to take.
Baby Z's top, pants and vest are all from H&M. Shoes are from Baby Gap.
No duck pond post would be complete with a picture dedicated solely to our web footed and bread hungry friends.

XoXo!
