What you see from photos on social media, is never what it really is! Beautiful, focused, quality images of children behaving perfectly that just make you feel terrible about your far from perfect life. Well, we all know the truth, so let’s not forget it. Images posted on social media are hand picked to show you the best! We all do it. But really, it’s the candid shots, the imperfections that make life beautiful.
And that’s why I’ve created this video of what our photoshoot really looked like! Yes, it was fun, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a bit stressful, hectic, and slightly disorganized with kids crying and running around. I do not consider myself a “photographer,” but I do know that it takes patiences and acceptance of the fact that sometimes, no matter how badly you want it, you just aren’t going to get the shots you want (or saw on pinterest!).
A huge shout out to my 10 year old nephew for recording the video, my sister-in-law for helping and all the models and mammas for coming out. Your support is much appreciated!
Hope you enjoy the video!
How The Georgia Came to Be
The suggestion to make crop tops came from one of my biggest supporters – the mamma behind @aj_and_ro. They are two sweet sisters who love to support Canadian handmade shops. They are both mini superstars (check them out on Instagram) and I was so humbled to hear that Sew Bright Creations was the first handmade shop they fell in love with! After the response to the crop top tester I made for Ro was very positive – I knew I had to dive all in and keep going. I usually say no to any custom order that requires a pattern that I have not purchased, but this was different. I altered an existing pattern, but it was still months of sewing and testing on different size kids to make sure all the measurements were just right.
All the patterns I’ve purchased come with a name. Madison Dress, Anna Dress, etc, but with this being an original, it needed a new name and I was excited to have you guys participate in suggesting and voting for a name on Facebook and Instagram. The wining name “Georgia Crop” came from a childhood friend of mine and it’s named after her daughter, Georgia <3.
Without further ado, here are the Georgia Crop photos! Oh, and this was my first solo photoshoot. Normally I’d work with a photographer to do this, so I was incredibly nervous about the whole thing!
All crops, bloomers, headbands and necklaces in the photos are available in Sew Bright’s Etsy Shop.
She’s all mine and she is somethin’ else! Georgia Cherry Crop is available HERE. My 2.5 year old normally wears size 3 clothes and she’s showing off the size 3/4T crop here. I think it is big enough to also fit next summer.
The Dino fabric has been super popular in the dresses so there wasn’t enough for more Georgia Crops. There are just two (ready to ship) dresses left in this fabric! Get yours HERE. This cutie is wearing the 18 month crop and she normally wears 18-24 month clothes.
I didn’t get a lot of photos of this sweetie, but it was definitely my favourite outfit! Get your Georgia Crop & Denim Polka Dot Bloomers HERE. This girl is almost 1 and wearing the 6-12 month crop.
The bonnet was crocheted by Precious Gems Crochet, handmade with love in Martensville, SK. Shop HERE.
Although impossible to take, the group photos are my favourite!
