This shoot for the fantastic Acorn & Pip was hands down one of my all time favourites. I’ve admired Acorn & Pip for ages – they curate the most beautiful selection of design-led kids’ brands – totally delicious clothing, toys, décor and gifts for mums – and most importantly, the very lovely Lucy (aka head honcho) is passionate about ensuring that everything they offer is sustainable, organic and ethically sourced. It’s basically a gorgeous, expertly curated little treasure trove and you’ll instantly want everything in there. Needless to say, I was absolutely over the moon when she got in touch to ask me to shoot their Spring/Summer 2017 lookbook.
This shoot combined so many of my favourite things – hilarious, spirited, cute-as-a-button kids…. insanely beautiful clothing, gorgeous toys, gummy smiles, sticky fingers, belly giggles, excited shrieks, mischievous faces and most of all a massive rollicking heap of FUN. It was a total pleasure and honour to shoot Acorn & Pip‘s lookbook, and the only drawbacks of the shoot are that I now have a must-get shopping list the length of my arm and my youngest son is shortly to become a million times more fashionable than me. Feast your eyes on the incredible clothing from the crazy talented brands: clothing from Tobias & The Bear, Mr Wolf, Cribstar, Sleepy Doe, Didi+Bud, Turtledove London, What Mother Made… with toys & accessories from Noé & Zoë, Olli Ella, Wooden Story, IIMO, Donkey, Wildfire Teepees, Best Years, A Little Lovely Company and Buddy+Bear.
Thank you so much again Lucy for bringing me into the Acorn & Pip gang… I had an absolute blast.
So, without further ado… introducing the total stars of the show… Orla, Rex, Eden, Leo, Luca and Mabel… all of them beautiful inside and out and who made my face ache all day from smiling at their antics… I tried to convince their parents to let me adopt them all, but oddly they were having none of it 😉
