A little introduction -> Many of you may know me formerly as Pintsize. You’re probably wondering what happened, as I closed the shop with no potential re-opening in sight. . I actually ended up losing the amazing moms who helped me sew the clothes for my business, and having no idea how to sew myself, I was just waiting until I could find a replacement. . Well, months have passed, and I found out how hard it is to find someone to help me. . I also realized how much I actually want to be a part of the process of bringing you comfortable, cute clothing for your babies ❤️. . That being said, I’ve taken my haven’t-been-opened-been-sitting/in-my-closet sewing machine out, and decided that I’m finally going to take the plunge and learn how to sew. . And as to not keep you in the dark or confused about where I’ve gone or what I’m doing, I’ve decided I want you to be a part of this journey of learning to make my own clothes. . I’m going to be honest. Some pieces will not be good. Some will be downright ugly. But this is the season of life I’m in now, and I believe this is what God wants me to do, and so I’m just trusting in His plan and letting Him be in control of my life. . Every Little Season? Pintsize was/is a reminder of not only my shortcomings, but also showed me my lack of trust in what God has in store for me, trying to force things to happen in my own time, my own way. And this season is about letting go, and truly letting God. . And I hope to one day {soon} bring you clothes that you will love. For every Little, in every season. . PC: Andrew M Boyd
Ieri sera sono morta e risorta. • • Ore 19.15 Alex trotterella per casa, alzandosi da solo e camminando fiero di questa nuova conquista nei suoi movimenti, fiero della sua autonomia. Io preparo i bagagli, domani si parte. Mio marito mi sorride mentre osserva il nostro cucciolo muovere i suoi primi passi divertito. - È un attimo. Un misero attimo. Alex inciampa e cade sbattendo la sua boccuccia perfetta e tagliandosi il labbro inferiore, sia dentro che fuori, con i suoi stessi denti. - Un fiume di sangue. Urla disumane che mai avrei voluto sentire. È un attimo. Lo sollevo e lo attacco al seno. - Lui subito si calma. Mi guarda con i suoi occhi immensi e mi allunga una manina verso il viso, come a volermi consolare e a dirmi: "mamma, se ci sei tu qui vicino io sto bene". Mio marito prende il ghiaccio nel frattempo, cosi blocchiamo il gonfiore ed anche il sangue pian piano smette di scorrere. - Noi sembriamo appena usciti dal set di un film horror. Abiti sporchi di sangue. Pelle contro pelle, sangue contro pelle. • • Una corsa al pronto soccorso per accertarci che la situazione fosse sotto controllo e per verificare se servissero punti di sutura o strip di contenimento, ma per fortuna nulla di tutto ciò. • • La sua ferita si riemarginerà, piano piano. Il mio cuore riprenderà ad avere un ritmo regolare, piano piano. • • [ In foto: I will change the world. Alex, 10 mesi. La perfezione fatta a bambino. ] . . . . #pensieriditito #cosedamamma #hounastoriaperte . . . . #cheansia #primipassi #attacchidipanico #thingsiwanttoremember #lascritturahaloroinbocca #feliceadesso #faidellordinariounapoesia #spontaneamentecurato #lessenzialevisibilealcuore #esercizidibellezza #esercizidilentezza #ungiornoallimprovviso #racconti #motherhoodsimplified #motherthishome #simplymamahood #stillaboy #ourchildrenphoto #writeyouonmyheart #lovelymoments #documentlife #lifeandlensblog #treasuringlittlememories #littlefierceones #worldoflittles #nestingly #theheartcaptured
Summer is coming to an end, but we can’t wait because #homeschool - so all it really means to us is less crowded pools + beach 😬🌿 Did you know you can homeschool any schedule you want, as long as it’s within the states regulations ? We do year round so we can take breaks whenever we want. Homeschool = freedom #raisingcubs #101reasonswehomeschool #homeschoolcubs #sonlight #homeschool #raisingmen
|| I t s A l l A b o u t T e a || Its no secret that I'm partial to a bit (15-20 cups a day) of caffeine. But it's also no secret that with a wedding looming and a body shape I can only describe as 'spongecake oozing over the baking tray' I need to slim down and shape up a little. _____ This is my conscious effort to cut down on caffeine. Lemon and ginger, peppermint, raspberry & echinacea and ginger and lime. I always add a lemon or lime slice to freshly stew with the tea too. We've also topped up the fruit bowl, given the last of the crisps away, swapped full fat for semi skimmed taken a stab at meal prep and planning in advance. We've also (Adam and I) made an appointment to check out out local gym. _____ Tomorrow marks the start of my 'wedding regime' to give it a name. More effort, more exercise...let's shift this tum, bum and then some!!!! _____ #ontheblog #savvyblogging #bloggerlife #bloggergirl #creativelifehappylife #thepursuitofjoyproject #familyiseverything #documentingmotherhood #dailyparenting #mamablogger #lifeandlensblog #unitedinmotherhood #momlifeisthebestlife #honestmotherhood #ohheymama #joyfulmamas #slowmotherhood #teammotherly #motherhoodunplugged #cameramama #clickinmoms #childhoodunplugged #oneofthebunch #momswithcameras

It’s#WorldPhotoDay , and I’m sharing my favorite photo at the moment—a photo of my little ones! I haven’t shared this in a while, but it was because of my oldest daughter that I even became a family photographer! ❤️ • The best part of my job is that I’m able to capture beautiful memories and create beautiful works of art for my client families. And being able to capture the personalities of my own children is something I’m truly blessed to be able to do!
World Photography Day is certainly a day we love to celebrate!!! We think bringing photography and photographs to individuals without access is incredibly valuable and important, and we are proud to continue to grow our reach and share more stories. Thank you for joining us! #worldphotographyday • • • #visualoflife #photographylife #gatheredstyle #lifeofaphotographer #clickmagazine #destinationphotographer #livethelittlethings #momentsofmine #lifeandlensblog #beautifuldestinations #worlderlust #instapassport #exploringtheglobe #travelon #travelgram #openmyworld #passionpassport #passportexpress #welltravelled #gotoafrica #travellingto #wanderlusttoafrica #creativityfound #artforthehome #entrepreneurspirit #goaldigger #photographyforgood #focusonwhatmatters
Happiness is waking up slowly on a Sunday, making breakfast for your family as they lay sleeping in bed. Watching them slowly awake to the smell of bacon and the sweet sounds of Aretha on the record player. Gratitude is knowing that this is the only thing you would want to be doing right now. . . . #thatsdarling #documentyourdays_summer #ottawaphotography #ottawa #yow #thesincerestoryteller #cameramama #candidchildhood #lifeandlensblog #childrenofinstagram #wildandbravelittles #magicofchildhood #follow_this_light #dearphotographer #thelifestylecollective #wilderness #wild #ofwilddawnphotography #familyphotography #ottawafamilyphotographer #family #childhoodunplugged #613
My boy just dropped the 🎤 when it comes to kids birthday parties. For his 3rd birthday party he chose a Statue of “LiVerty” theme. 🗽😂 He became a little obsessed with her over the last few months and will happily tell you facts about her. Coolest kid ever!! Check out how excited he was about getting a torch, crown and special 🗽 deserts in stories. He’s hilarious!! . . . #3rdbirthday #statueofliberty #mamasboy #lovehim #minicomedian #lifeandlensblog #ourcandidmoments

During our little sunset session last week, Jim asked if I wanted him to take some photos of Grace and I. I nearly said no, as I didn’t have makeup on and wasn’t dressed nicely... but I do complain that I don’t have enough photos of me and my little squish. So here we are 🌻 Also, I reckon I’ve taught him well 😏 📷 @jimmy_trewhella
Just washing off some of those really cool, super fun, terrific-two toddler vibes. 👍🏼👻
|| T h i s L i t t l e L i g h t O f M i n e || I m G o n n a L e t I t S h i n e || - How do we (Charlotte) get into brand rep and influencing?? ○●○●○● How is my eldest daughter, my baby girl, going to be in secondary school in less than three weeks? _____ I'm just not mentally ready to accept I'm old enough to have a nearly-but-not-quite teenager. She is scarily independent already. I know it sounds silly but she never needs me for anything any more. She makes her bed, puts her laundry away, picks up her own mess, makes her own breakfast, lunch/school lunch. She's making plans with her friends to go out and spend the day doing stuff. She only needs me when she's run out of shampoo 😂 One day she'll kill me for saying this but she also still needs kisses and hugs at bedtime, although I will absolutely miss them when they disappear from the evening routine. _____ So this is actually a throwback picture to two years ago (I know, she looks so grown up doesn't she!!!) The reason behind this little faux photo shoot is we had a little stint of trying to get her into catalogue modelling. We never really went through with it even though she got through to a final casting with a couple, because most of the agencies were based in London and beyond, I couldn't drive, and I was worried about things clashing with school. So that year, she became Carnival Princess instead. ____ She's a little more keen to dabble this year, but I was thinking maybe brand repping online would be something more manageable?? How do we/she get into entering brand representing and influencing for children? Any advice will be eagerly taken on board - thank you. ❤ ○●○●○● #brandrepsearchuk #influencer #ontheblog #savvyblogging #bloggerlife #bloggergirl #creativelifehappylife #thepursuitofjoyproject #familyiseverything #documentingmotherhood #dailyparenting #mamablogger #lifeandlensblog #unitedinmotherhood #momlifeisthebestlife #honestmotherhood #ohheymama #slowmotherhood #teammotherly #motherhoodunplugged #clickinmoms #childhoodunplugged #oneofthebunch #momswithcameras

Me: “I’m getting everyone fleecy animal onesies for when we go camping. Do you want in?” Sam: “Absolutely not.” YOU CAN’T SIT WITH US.
Jawel, het is zover, vanaf nu hebben we dubbele fun aan het kraam 🎉

Can I tell you a secret? I didn’t love being pregnant. I was uncomfortable and felt gross and it was weird knowing I was growing a human inside my body that I could feel. Also? Didn’t love having to pee all the time, not to mention not being able to sleep well. It was a hard thing for me to give up my body autonomy in that way. Because of that, I didn’t have maternity photos done. It was the last thing I wanted to do. But now? Now I wish I had one nice photo of myself with that big belly MAKING A HUMAN INSIDE MY BODY. Because that is pretty freakin’ awesome.
Sometimes it’s all about a little pop of colour! The pink roses in these girls’ bouquets was the perfect touch.
School starts on Monday for my girl. Enjoying last summer break weekend together ☀️ P.S. photo shoots at apple orchards are just magical. Ask me more about them. 📸

For almost 4 months Sam has hated bath time. He’s been terrified of water and panics at even just his feet being dipped in. Just recently he has either come around to it, or we have figured out a routine that works, either way I’m not changing a thing! @babobotanicals has been our go to baby soap since he was born, and this amazing living sponge from @kytebaby is a must have! . . . #umh_kids #beunraveled #pixel_kids #the_sugar_jar #motherhoodthroughinstagram #cameramama #jj_its_kids #momtogs #momswithcameras #clickinmoms #thebloomforum #dearestviewfinder #thelifestylecollective #lifeandlensblog #simplychildren #newborn #kidsmood #heaventhrumylens #thebloomforum #ourcandidlife #documentyourdays #magicofchildhood #lifewellcaptured #childofig #lophoto #lubbockphotographer #lubbocknewbornphotographer#stunningbabies
Hi baby 💛
I know everyone’s probably out enjoying the last few summer weekends but how unbelievably cute are these two ❤️❤️ So happy to sneak in a little session before they head back to AB @victoriajjohnson
#sundays more than often look alike in our little cottage. we let in small shards of sharp early light to slowly wake us, while we pad about heavy-footed and foggy-eyed into midday without needing leaving the house... we brunch instead of breakfast. our favourites are hot cakes slicked with maple syrup or croissant if I've been home the evening before with time to let them rise. and always local press orange juice we've purchased Saturday from the markets. it feels simple, routine, but we like it. I slow more than usual and make time for pour over coffee. I use the six cup Chemex we would share and it lasts me through til mid-afternoon while I write. finally without you i have found time to write. a lot has changed since you met us. there's no place for you here. #allofthesenamesforyou #thesincerestoryteller
It’s the last weekend of summer for us and while a big part of me is excited for our routine to be back I’m really going to miss the carefree days of making some sweet memories.
