Happy Holidays shoot by Maud Fontein (again at the ShopUp!)

Here are my four babies photographed by Maud Fontein for this year’s Happy Holidays shoot. They’ve grown a bit since last year, haven’t they? I’m always impressed by how Maud can take such sweet photos of all my kids — she is so wonderful, makes children so quickly at ease. My kids actually look forward to going over to Maud’s — they know they’ll be in for a laugh (which does have to do with the fact that Maud lets me sit on a whoopee cushion!).

Maud also (very quickly!) took some portraits of the kids individually. So sweet. I love how their personalities show so well, Sara already getting so big…

Maud will be joining us this year again for the ShopUp, and she’s already taking bookings for her happy holidays shoots. I love this year’s theme! So if you’re in London on December 3rd or 4th, you can have your babies photographed this way as well. : )


Also — Maud will again be bringing these great Christmas Cards Toolkits (designed by Vivian from de Liefdesfabriek) to London. Filled with 20 cards, black envelopes, masking tape, stickers and a white pen — everything you need to turn your photos into a beautiful holiday card. As you can see, I already started mine!

Wow gorgeous! Love the crisp and bright photos and your kids are solo darling! How old is Sara now, like 20? 🙂 We could share clothes I think! Beautiful girl – after mama of course!

I am laughing so hard (which does has to do with the fact that Maud lets you sit on a whoopee cushion!) how brillant is this?! Your children look super beautiful! I am now going to bring my kids to London… X

Hi Claire, thanks for you comment! Actually, Ava’s dress is over 7 years old and I got it at GAP at the time (for Sara) — but, this dress from Mabo Kids is a little similar: http://store.mabokids.com/product/mila-apron-sundress-in-textured-chambray (just as cute!!) xxx

I’m still in shock that Maud was able to get Casper to sit still and smile so sweetly and be so happy to have his photo taken! 🙂 Maybe we should see if she can get him to wear hats?! xxx
