Happy 9 months (7.5 Months adjusted) to my little man. You can see why I call him my little man, he acts so mature ☺️. You are 80th percentile in height. You have 2 teeth and 2 more coming in. You say mama, dada and nana. You love bananas and baby cookies as well as water. You won’t stop trying to crawl, can’t keep you on your back at all. You are a silly little funny guy who loves to laugh and babble. And apparently you are really into leaves 🍁 love you my little mr.man
Recently, motherhood has taught me the meaning of living in the moment and being at peace. Children don’t think about yesterday. They don’t think about tomorrow....They just EXIST in the moment 💛 #mamasboy
Some of you may know I'm obsessed w shimmer lotion
I mean it goes all the way back to the days when Jergen's had one!
Does anyone else remember that 90's trend?
I also coveted that glass jar of Nars Monoï Oil glow for years, but really it is so pricey
Now, every brand is doing it & I feel like it's my responsibility to be the resident expert
So after many off brand Marshall's finds, a decent run with Kopari, now here comes the winner from @roses_n_rose
I mean look at that color. The texture is just right, not too thick, thin enough to spray & the smell gives me all the island vibes
My tan may be fading, but this will keep me glowy all winter long
And can we talk about my new @primecutbags B&W dot cowhair clutch?
So many good feels all around. What are you swooning over lately? xo 💋
PSA Fall is coming. Which one of these will fulfill your boots and sweater desires? Jamie Joseph, left to right: Chocolate Moonstone in rose gold, ebonized peanut wood, druzy. DM for details as two are not online. 🍁🍂🌾
New rug in the dining room! Not-so-deceptively cropped out: the dining room table covered in decor and photo props I need to put away. Also not pictured: the two four-legged members of the UDH design team who make laying down a new rug RIDICULOUS. I mean, I get that the new rug is super soft, but do you have to be in the way for EVERY adjustment and create lumps? 😤 (see previous video post to see what I mean). If they keep this up, dog shaming will be posted on the regular (let’s face it, it’s not like they can read). But the new lighter color keeps catching my eye every time I walk through the house, so at least it was worth it. Oh, and check my stories for new outdoor updates! Big cosmetic upgrades happening this week!
“Arlo, walk?” Is what I hear pretty much constantly all day ~ everyday at the moment. He does not want to stay still for even a second and I’m pretty sure here he’s telling me off for lagging behind 🤷🏼♀️ #arlolukesmith
D A Y 7// Where I find inspiration. The places, spaces or people who inspire me.
I’ve always wanted to be a fashion designer when I was younger. I used to collect Vogue, Watch fashion tv and thought it was so important to learn French so insisted I went to live with my mum in France to learn French!
Seeing designers create these amazing backdrops to their Collections on runways, shops & in photos fascinated me. They created a fantasy world to give their Collection or Designer piece a story.
That’s really where my inspiration first came from and formed the love of where I now find myself. However today’s inspirations come from other creatives I aspire to and I think their style definitely influences my style. But my biggest inspiration comes from my clients & followers. Knowing what they want, appreciating they are business women who need their photography to ultimately help sell their products & services shapes my business. From my photography to how I work with my clients. 💕
Brands & Business women who Inspire me daily-
* Jen Gotch, founder of Ban.do @shopbando * Ashley Rose founder of Sugar & Cloth @sugarandcloth * Kristen Ley, founder of Thimblepress @kristen_ley * Joy Cho founder of OhJoy @ohjoy

You had me at Aloha
Since Sean practically grew up spending summers in Hawaii, and we’ve also been here together a few times, it’s always fun finding things we’ve both never seen before on Maui
Ali’i Kula Lavender Farm was such a whimsical place to visit with breathtaking views of the island.

Com tanto calor apetece mesmo é uma melancia, certo?? 😁
Acho que não resisto a fazer umas meninas melancia - o que acham?
It's still so hot here that I'm on summer mood, so a #watermelon seems perfect, right?! 😁
Might be doing some watermelon little girls, what do you think?
