Welcome! I'm a DC-based photographer, wife, and mom to a sweet baby boy we call John-John.

I've started blogging to share the ideas, products, and discoveries that have made my life easier and more intentional in hopes they will do the same for you!

Gift Guide: For New Moms

Gift Guides

Blue Dress Nuuly Subscription (Discount)/ Natori Robe / Key Wristlet / Initial Necklace (Splurge, Save) / Massage Gift Card / Flower Subscription / Pajamas / Nordstrom Gift Card / Joggers / Dinner Gift Card


  • Help her find clothes she feels great in, even while her body is changing, without the investment or commitment by gifting a month subscription to Nuuly.
  • I love my silky soft Natori robe after wearing it for years and still slip it on almost every morning.
  • Fresh pajamas always brighten up your bedtime routine, even if you know you’ll be up in only a couple hours. Bonus: these are breastfeeding friendly and visitor appropriate.
  • This key wristlet is on my Christmas wish list! Never is a free hand more valuable than when you’re juggling a diaper bag, car seat, and everything else.
  • My favorite joggers that are comfy enough to sleep in and put together enough to wear almost anywhere. Bonus: the drawstring waistband makes them a sure fit for a changing body.
  • Patrick gave me this dainty necklace for Christmas last year and I wear it almost every single day. This is another great budget version.
  • A Nordstrom gift card so she can go get properly fitted and buy a couple new bras- priceless for feeling good in any outfit!
  • A gift card for brunch or dinner at a local gem paired with a homemade gift certificate for you to babysit while they’re on the date would be a home run gift in my book!
  • I gifted my best friend a flower delivery subscription for her birthday and it made her so happy for months. New moms don’t need the responsibility of keeping a plant alive, but fresh flowers make even the messiest house feel fresh. Bonus: they’ll think of you every time they receive their new bouquet!
  • Recovering from labor and the demands of being a new mom are hard on a woman’s body. Let someone else take care of her for an hour by gifting a massage for whenever she’s ready.
