Enjoying the SCENERY

Spring is in the air here in Amsterdam so it’s high time I started taking pictures again now the dark days are behind us, for a while at least (scared to speak too soon!). I spent a lovely day this week at the residence of accessory and home wares label SCENERY. They have such a fun and colourful home – more of that to show you soon, but for now, here’s a peak into the lovely room of the SCENERY kids.

The idea behind these photos was to create an editorial style image incorporating some of the lovely designers and brands I have connected with recently on Instagram, all Dutch or French made products and many of the items made right here in Amsterdam.

Below is a little round-up, click the links to go to the product page or webshop for each item. All products are hand selected and approved by myself for quality, relevance and absolute gorgeousness!

Green Graffiti and Goosebumps

We did an impromptu mini shoot on the way home from school today just because our outfits with our new Mon Petit Zoreol bead necklaces were a good excuse to use the backdrop of fresh new graffiti I spotted the other day! Well, when I say ‘we’ (Dexie is in the cargo bike just out of shot) I had to bribe Miss Dolly (it is a bit chilly and obviously we needed to take our coats off!) into doing the pics, I was only allowed to take pics of her if she could take some of me AND apparently the cost of a 6 minish mini shoot with Miss Doll-face is 2 packets of Frozen stickers πŸ™‚ Done deal.

Bead necklaces available here – thanks Mon Petit Zoreol, we LOVE them x

Family Sessions

Hello there! These lovely photos are by Connection Photography of the very lovely Fox family, taken on the East Coast, USA.

What a gorgeous looking family, their baby girl is so cute! You can follow more pics of the family on Instagram here. And her outfit, right? The headband is by A Tiny Arrow, gold mini moccasins by Mini Moxie, the sequined dress was made from a women’s dress thrifted by her mom. If I could get away with wearing that outfit, I would!

The teepee in the background is indeed a BIG Moozle teepee, these are proving very popular with photographers at the moment as tepees are still in hot demand for family and particularly 1st birthday photo sessions, there’s another one in the pipeline I’m waiting to share with you, Moozlehome Facebook fans will already have had a sneaky preview of this! ‘Like’ us on Facebook to be first to see all of the new designs, customer photos and special offers as they come in.

New customer review (lots more on the website and Etsy shop)…

Dear Kate, thank you for the beautiful teepee we all love it my little boy went straight in it and plays in it every day. Many thanks Samantha, Nottinghamshire, UK

Thank you so much, please keep your reviews and photos and Instagram tags comming in, I LOVE to see them.

Colour in the City

Oh. My. Goodness. The kids and I had such a great time yesterday afternoon with photographer Maud Fontein at her studio in De Pijp. We shot a new Moozle teepee design that called for something special… and it certainly all came together πŸ™‚

I am so excited to share the results with you but for now here’s a few pics I took on my i-phone whilest we were getting the balloons for the shoot and then on our way home.

We cycled across the Amstel with the balloons trailing behind and the sun streaming though them – I wish I had a photo of that!

We had so much fun we couldn’t sleep last night, way too much visual stimulation πŸ™‚

It was great to work with Maud, I highly reccommend her if you are looking to do a kids/family shoot and hope we get to do lots of more work together in the future.

Keep an eye on the Moozle Facebook page for exciting Moozle news!

Hello there! If you are a Moozle Facebook fan then you will have already seen a couple of previews from Monday’s fun photo shoot with SCENERY girls Beth and Maude and their lovely wares. The SCENERY acessories perfectly compliment the amazing graffiti back drop with the bright pops of neon colour and striking geometric patchworks.

Photo credit to… me! I do love to get behind the lense and really enjoyed seeing the shoot come together just as I hoped it would, the kids do their own thing so I just have to capture it – there really is no directing these characters, it’s like herding kittens πŸ™‚ We managed to squeeze the entire setting-up/shoot/styling into just over 1 hour between school and after schools clubs – we know how to keep busy!!

Good news for SCENERY fans… they have a SALE on all of their graffitti range… get on over there – QUICK, look sharp!
