There are seriously so many mamas I could feature here.
I’ve worked with, followed, and stumbled upon images that are truly inspiring, gives me ALL the baby fever, and fuels my desire to keep going in design and in working with families to do good.
Today, I hope through this post to inspire you, share some amazing stories, and curate a small collection of families who live a life well-loved.
This was probably the account that inspired me. I’m probably biased - she has taken some of my favorite product photos of my little shop’s heirloom items to-date, but beyond that is a feed that tells a story.
Mama to three sweet little girls, Tierney Morgan captures the most beautiful moments for brands. She somehow integrates these items perfectly into the candid lives of her littles - all the while encouraging others to foster community and take their dreams to new heights.
I absolutely love the way Isabelle’s images seem to move with life! So full of whimsy and joy!
Mother of two sweet littles, Isabelle is a French Canadian originally from Quebec. Their military family moved to Alberta 3 years ago, and she discovered Instagram and the small shop community shortly thereafter. Since then, she has been collaborating with brands and taking dreamy photos of her life with her family.
If you are in the small shop scene on Instagram, it’s likely you’ve stumbled upon Leia’s sweet napping photos.
Mama Carrie Keefe started making vintage bonnets from preloved material in 2016 and has found her dream community on Instagram. Her story is so sweet - and her business is truly a family endeavor that helps other families make sweet memories with her bonnets. Her small shop, Sweet as April, focuses on using vintage textiles, often with sweet embroidery and details, and her motto is “saving this world from textile waste, one bonnet at a time.” She also hosts the hashtag #onebonnetatatime, so head on over to the ‘gram and give her a follow on all of her channels! She is truly making a difference through her work and through her collaboration with other small shops!
The bright, airy images that Emma takes are just beautiful and captures her adorable family in perfect form. Her photographs also seem to capture her sweet personality and her story so well.
Emma is the mama to Georgia, who is currently 13 months old. She says, “I am a creative at heart, a Christian, and I live for Spring mornings, coffee, and anything and everything linen.” She is currently obsessed with pinks and golds, she says, and loves film photography and natural light. Emma lives in a small town in Virginia with her husband, baby, husky, and cat and she loves using Instagram to connect with other mamas and small shops. She also says “My passion is to shop small as often as I can and I am working towards a low waste household as well. I love meeting new friends so please feel free to reach out to me on Instagram!”
This mom and blogger has a feed that is stylish, clean, and yet shows up even in the messiest of mom moments. Truly authentic, down-to-earth, and yet curated beautifully.
Britt is a full-time mom, homeschooler, and blogger living with her husband (her high school sweetheart!) and three beautiful children in Canada. She is passionate about connecting with her followers and bringing them value in whatever she does. This family dreams of living abroad someday in pursuit of one of their favorite things - travel.
