Each item is hand made and unique to each photographer. It is made with organic high quality materials that can not be purchased in every day craft stores. Our popular Lush Layer line is hand dyed, hand spun, and hand knit by our staff. It is made with skin soft Australian Merino Wool. Our props are a perfect element to any newborn photograph and are reasonably priced.

I started 3 years ago with the birth of my second son. I sat at home, and was tired of watching soap opera's when my tupperware bin full of yarn was screaming at me to tell me to make a blanket for him. It took 3 weeks and 3 pounds of yarn but I finally completed his blanket. After posting on Facebook, many of my friends began asking me for custom orders, so I started selling my items. I was working a full time job while doing Simplistic by Sondra, and it was a soul sucking job. I finally decided to jump in with both feet and focus on my babies and my business (which is one of my babies). Here I am 3 years later, and I am very blessed and extremely humbled with the decision I've made.

Our most popular line is the Lush Layer Line. We also have a new "The Floral Collection" which has been getting many rave reviews.
