Mark your calendars Mamas! I am SO EXCITED to be part of the Mommy and Me Pop-Up Event taking place at Emerson Kate Boutique in The Avenue on Saturday the 1st! We’ll be celebrating motherhood with photography and shopping designed perfectly for mamas and babies! Let me give you all the pretty details –
This Mommy and Me Pop-Up Event will be taking place at Emerson Kate Boutique in The Avenue in Murfreesboro, TN! If you know anything about EKB’s owner Chelsea – you know that she is passionate about all things motherhood! Being a mama herself, she knows what motherhood is all about and she THRIVES on supporting other mothers through her business. Her Murfreesboro boutique is FULL of beautiful things and is such an amazing place to shop and meet other mamas. This February she is celebrating all the mothers that shop with her by hosting this event and bringing in local vendors (like me!) to give her clients an amazing experience.
This is so so so exciting! Emerson Kate Boutique has a super sweet built in studio INSIDE the boutique! Been there and never seen it? That’s because it’s tucked away in the back – making it perfect for us to create a beautiful, cozy mini-session set up with all the privacy we need for mini breastfeeding sessions (and mini mommy and me sessions of course!). As you can see in some of the images in this post – our set up is a shiplap wall (I know you’re sold already…who doesn’t love shiplap?!), with an elegant loveseat draped in lace. It’s simple. It’s classic. It’s perfect for focusing on the CONNECTION between you and your baby.
These Mini Sessions aren’t your average – sit down, pose, smile and say cheese, take your jump-drive of pictures and go – type of mini sessions. These are designed to CELEBRATE YOU AND YOUR BABY. There will be no posing and awkward smiling. There will be no jump drive that will sit in a junk drawer until you turn 85.
Instead, you’ll come in, cozy up on the loveseat with your baby, and nurse, cuddle, give kisses, sing songs, and just BE together. It will be so simple and easy and relaxed. And I’ll be able to photograph those little moments that really make your heart feel full.
After your session you’ll get to grab a goodie bag with treats from each of the local vendors at the event (I’ll tell you about them in a minute!), and go shop and have fun! Since you paid and sent over your contact info in advance, it will be TOTALLY stress free! About a week after your mini session I’ll send you a link to view your images. You’ll select your two favorites – I’ll have them professionally printed – and placed in a STUNNING vintage-gold, handstamped, floral locket. This isn’t costume jewelry people. THIS is an heirloom. This is what you treasure and let your baby see you wearing and let them find in your jewelry box 30 years from now. This is what you give to your baby years from now when you’re passing down MEMORIES of how beautiful this little life of yours was. This. Is. Timeless.
Of course you’ll have the option of purchasing the digital files, and even some gorgeous products (like canvases or framed prints) from my online shop. But I wanted to hand you something LASTING – and this locket – this is it. This is what I hand-selected for you because I love you. I love your babies. I love your relationships. And I feel SO passionate about helping you turn the tiny moments of your life into memories you can pass down to your children.
There will be several vendors set up inside the boutique for mamas to check out and shop local!

Emerson Kate Boutique – Of course we must first mention the boutique itself – Emerson Kate Boutique! Their products are gorgeous and they have something for EVERYTHING! I could spend hours in there.

The Doodle Mark – This. Girl. Is. Incredible. She’s a watercolor artist AND a jewelry designer! She’ll be taking custom orders for watercolor paintings – she takes a photograph of your family and turns it into a stunning watercolor painting! You can use one of the photographs from your mini session – or any other favorite photograph you have – and put it a custom order with her right there in the boutique! She will also have a collection of her handmade earrings (run don’t walk…people are seriously obsessing over these and they won’t last long once mamas start coming in!) to sell at her booth during the event hours!
ADFI Designs – HANDMADE WOOD TOYS YA’LL! This lady is an incredible artist and makes custom peg dolls for your babies. She sells beautiful rainbow sets AND custom sets painted to look LIKE YOUR FAMILY! (Is your jaw on the floor? Mine is). These sets are perfect for tiny hands and so wonderful for learning and play – and to know that they are handmade by another mama with so much love – they’re seriously perfect.
Embroidery Artist – Need custom embroidery work done on a onesie? Bib? T-shirt? Anything? This is the place to get it done!
