Spotlight: Lovechild

Spotlight: Lovechild
Lovechild is a modern, true to kid, pop-up studio that encourages children to be themselves in any shape or form they may come in. In turn, giving you photos that capture those true moments of your child.
We had the pleasure of spending some time with Annie + Raya, the ladies behind Lovechild, a few months ago when we teamed up with them and Pottery Barn Kids for our Spooky Love Date (check it out here).
When we heard they were having pop-up sessions in San Francisco, it was a no brainer to get another chance to work with them, just in the nick of time for holiday cards.
Here are a few of our fave shots that they captured of Abby’s littles, Dylan and Jett:
Mama Truth: Not every child is ready for their close up, especially a tired 2 year old named Jett Jagger.
This is why we love these girls… every shot is priceless.
 Jett’s sister Dylan on the other hand was a ham!  Pretty sure Dylan wanted to spend the whole day with Annie + Raya.
Wardrobe change?!? YES! Love how they encourage you to bring multiple outfits for your little ones
We could not speak more highly of these two sweet ladies! Thank you Annie + Raya for capturing moments for us that we will cherish forever.
Be sure to sign up for Lovechild’s newsletter to be the first to hear about upcoming popups here. Pre-register your city ASAP! They will travel to the next city that has the most pre-registers!!

Holiday Cards 2014 – Beijos Picks

It may only be November 18th, but chances are you are already thinking about your family’s Holiday Cards… Well if you haven’t, you should!  Holiday cards are something even we have sometimes procrastinated on, and you don’t want to be that one person who gets there cards out to people two days before the big day, do you!?

We have done you a favor and picked out our must have Holiday Cards for 2014… There is a little something for everyone!

These Holiday Cards are from a few of our favorite websites for paper goods…  Minted, Tiny Prints, Paperless Post, Sugar Paper LA, Rifle Paper Co, and we are THRILLED that Artifact Uprising who we usually turn to for photo books just started Holiday Cards this year, yay!

If you really want to get into the Holiday spirit you may want to add a little Red to your card!!  When going through all of our favorite paper websites we noticed a Red trend, and well, we kind of loved it!!  Don’t get us wrong, we love a good classic white or glitzy gold, but we aren’t ones to shy away from color either!  And we are loving how a classic Christmas Red looks with these cards and adds a little bit of POP!

Now like we said… We love a good Glitzy Gold  as well, and we love how websites like Minted or Tiny Prints have made it possible for us to have gorgeous gold foil cards without blowing the bank!  Tiny Prints even has fun Copper options this year, finally someone else understands our love for anything copper!!  These are a few of our favorites that are fun but add a little sparkle, which we are all about…

So if you are like us and like to try something new and different here are a few options for you!  To start out, we are so excited… Tiny Prints just started doing Laser Cut cards… I mean you guys, how rad is that!?!  These two we picked out are so so pretty, and definitely bring the WOW factor!

Then there is one of our absolute favorites, Rifle Paper Co, who have the cutest custom cards we have ever laid our eyes on!  They are cute for families, couples, and you can even throw in your pets!!  We love how much personality these cards have and would most likely frame one for our house if we get the chance!!

Free People November Catalog- Beijos Must Haves

We have to admit, us three, might a have small slight shopping addiction. Ok fine!!!…. its not small whatsoever. But when you have holiday collections like the Free People November Catalog come out, we have to have a couple pieces to add to our wardrobe. With the holidays just around the corner, its time to have a couple holiday dresses ready for some mistletoe action and holiday get togethers. Plus, some of our favorite looks for less formal holiday gatherings. Take a look at what has us running to the nearest Free People boutique.

 Umm yeah! crushing on this Love and Embellished Shift Dress!! You will definitely find this on one of us soon….Adding a fur vest like this one, or even this jacket for those fun holiday parties……

Kimonos and long cardigans are our jam….  The wool magic carpet cardigan is a winner in our books as you can pair it with anything from denim to throwing it over a tunic. Everyone should have a staple kimono that goes with anything, and we think this black fringe robe is it…..

Spotlight: Goose Grease Shop

Us Beijos Girls have admired Goose Grease Shop for a while now and when we got the chance to collaborate with them, we jumped on it!  Goose Grease originally began in 2011 making dolls for children, then moved into their extremely popular custom wedding toppers, then to custom families, which works perfect for us!

We love how unique Goose Grease is and that they are a fair trade company using only sustainable wood.  They work with  a local carpenter in Bogota, Columbia to craft their dolls and women artisans there as well to paint their standard designs.  Goose Grease Shop also has a DIY kit to paint your own dolls, what a fun project to do on your own or with your kids!

Anna, the owner of Goose Grease along with her husband Juan, is beyond sweet and made sure we had all of our personalizations down to a t!  The process is extremely easy and we couldn’t be happier with our new family keepsakes.
