I love supporting locally owned small businesses and for this shoot, I was able to work with not just one, but TWO local Fort Worth small businesses. One of the great joys of being primarily a newborn photographer is that I get to see the tiniest little clients grow up in front of my camera. For this DFW Baby Community Collab, sweet Caroline came back into the studio and once again, did not disappoint. This girl has cheeks that go on for days and she smiles with her entire being! She was indeed the perfect choice to help highlight the products from these amazing businesses.
This adorably monogrammed bubble sweatshirt tunic is one of the many custom clothing, bags, etc. available for you and your kids! Caroline is the owner + designer of Cloth and Stitch. She, along with her husband (David) live in Fort Worth, TX with their three kids (Tinsley, Harrison, and Campbell). Cloth and Stitch was born in the Fall of 2019 and the goal at Cloth + Stitch is to be a one-stop-shop for all of your custom-embroidered needs and to take the stress out of shopping for you.
Baby Caroline's mom immediately commented on how soft the bubble sweatshirt was, and I could not get over the adorable font and perfect color combination of the stitching. Baby Caroline obviously knew she looked great, look at that smile!
The second business I had the pleasure of working with and supporting for this shoot was Coral Bunny and Lo. Jess loves supporting locally owned small businesses and exploring Dallas, Fort Worth, and all the cities in between. When I saw this delightful little plushie doll on her website, I knew it would be perfect for this baby session. Caroline, in all her cute baby self, thought it was fantastic as well. Not only did she cuddle it, throw it with glee, and kick it over in a fun game she played with her mama, she also found it perfect to comfort those swollen gums of hers.
In addition to the charming plushie dolls (and a variety of other gorgeous products from kitchen to home and office, earrings, to sleep masks, Coral Bunny and Lo also sews the most beautiful quilts, which, I might add, would make the most perfect gift to a mama of a newborn baby.
The next time you are looking for a perfect, thoughtful, personalized gift, not only for newborns or baby, but the entire family, sister, dad, best friend, be sure to check out Cloth + Stitch and Coral Bunny and Lo. Make a BIG impact, by shopping small.
