Here at Juniper James, we’ve been on hiatus since the arrival of my little one in July, and the last few months have been wonderful. My husband and I have had our hands full finding our rhythm as a family, and connecting with our daughter. I am choosing to continue to stay at home as a mom, and in that, was open to new partnerships that would enable me to continue making a difference, use my skills and work with great people. I am proud to say, we have found just that:
My main undertaking is conceptualizing and styling Kidaround’s covers, starting with their March/April issue, shooting early January, and I am beyond excited to be collaborating again with our favorite photographer, Sarah Hawkins of SHockins Photography for this first issue.
I have been invited to not just be their stylist, but also a part of the Kidaround Team, speaking into the vision for each edition, styling Kidaround to bring each issue to life in a way that helps inspire and move families forward, as well as helping to translate that over to Kidaround’s digital and social channels.
Most importantly, Kidaround has a heart that strives for what we strive for here at Juniper James – content and stories that make a difference: They are also giving us the opportunity to periodically feature the makeover of someone special, inspiring and deserving (child fighting a terminal illness, special needs children, homeless mother, etc.).
Amidst this exciting new endeavor, we will continue to offer our individual and editorial styling services. Contact us to book your appointments starting in February!
Stay tuned – our team is looking forward to enriching the lives of families
in Sacramento with Kidaround, and making a little magic in this next year!
Our Creative Director Kari and her husband Charles are
expecting their first little one in July, and couldn’t be happier!
The couple plan to find out the gender in the coming weeks, but for now have a
healthy little person growing and many family & friends anxious to meet and spoil them.
Being completely honest: this news has put us in the baby mood, and we’ve
been looking into all the adorable locally made baby apparel. Let’s just say,
this will be one local-lovin’ well-dressed baby.
Look forward to our site featuring maternity style posts & local kids/baby
clothes designer posts in our soon-coming series: Junebug
We’ll keep you in the loop on the littlest Shipman in the
coming months (and all the tiny local clothes we find & love).
with love & excitement – the JJ Crew
We work with so many wonderfully talented creatives & this shoot was no exception.
A huge thanks to Tiffanie of Time to Capture Portraiture. She was so easy to work with and excited to capture these first special moments of Kari & Charles’ joy at becoming parents.
