Spring Style for Toddler Boys & Girls

We’re hoping spring weather is just around the corner after a blustery winter.  My kids have outgrown almost all of their clothing!  Ella jumped from a 2t to a 4t (which she’s almost already outgrown) within a year!  And Hudson is finally growing also!  So, needless to say we are on the hunt for some new spring & summer clothing.  Today, I wanted to share some of the pieces I wish to add to their spring wardrobes. spring style_girl

kilee - Jenny- this is so cute! Perfect looks. I have a random question for you- what fonts did you use for this collage? Also what font is your logo? I love them both and am looking for some new font for a project I’m working on.

Mamarazzi Webinar

Those of you that have been asking for an online Mamarazzi class…today is your lucky day!  Ashley and I are hosting our first webinar on Saturday, April 12th.

Mamarazzi Webinar

Cost:  $175.00 includes a PDF version of our workbook as well as access to an alumni-only private Facebook group where you can ask questions and communicate with us long after the class.  Purchase your seat here:

What we will cover:  The basics of photography including what aperture, shutter speed, and ISO are and how they work together.  We’ll go from shooting in auto or semi-automatic modes to shooting in manual and nailing the exposure of each photo you take (Hooray for no more dark or blurry images!).  We’ll also talk about lighting, composition, and how to take more creative storytelling photos of your child.

How it will work:  We will meet online at 10am CST.  Ashley and I will go over our presentation as you watch.  As we go through if you have any questions our moderator will pass them along to us.  You will also be emailed a recorded copy of the class afterward to re-watch if need be.

It will be a first for us…but we have absolutely loved teaching this class for the last four years and are excited to teach those of you who can’t make it to Oklahoma for a class.  Can’t wait to see how your images change after just a few hours.  Reach out to us if you have any questions at mamarazzioftulsa@gmail.com

King Cake

My sweet friend, Lauren, of Lauren Haddox Designs (also a contributor of Every Day Cheer) sent us some fun mail last week…a decorate your own king cake!  I squealed when I opened up the door just in awe of her thoughtfulness.

My husband had LASIK surgery last week and the cake couldn’t have come at a more perfect time.  We needed a quiet after school activity & snack so Daddy could rest.  It may have not been the most beautifully decorated king cake…but it was a tasty one.

Thank you Lauren!

Our Everyday

This picture just exudes our everyday life right now.  Hudson absolutely lives in his roller skates.  And Ella is obsessed with dresses.  Her favorites are this one and her ballet dresses & tutus.  She changes outfits about 10 times a day.  I used to forbid it but now I give in and realize it’s her version of playing dress-up.

I was finishing up some work in my office when I came out to see Ella sitting on the table playing with the train set with Hudson.  I ran to get my camera.  Couldn’t pass up a moment like this.

PHOTO TIP:  Pick up your camera today and photograph your children doing something they love.  Even if it seems ordinary in the moment it will be something you’ll treasure once they’ve outgrown that stage.
