Instagram Love

In the past two years, I have run a shop, had that shop fall apart, started another shop & a marketing consultant business, have a middle schooler and a high schooler, soon to be two high-schoolers, been on three different PTA Boards for middle school, high school and council (over entire school district PTAs), had a baby, now have a toddler, been through countless robotics competitions with my boys along with the emotional roller coaster winning or losing those can be, met amazing friends and encouragers through my personal instagram @littlehollowlogan and my shop feed @roseburkhardt.

For those of you still reading, here's just a little bit of the fun over in Instagram world with a few of my favorite shop mamas and all the love and care that goes into each piece of clothing my littlest guy, Logan, is dressed in. None of these would be possible without my hubby, Brandon of @bjbphotos & & the magic he makes in his photos.

From first birthday to approaching his second birthday a few months away, I present in order of when we met them, Part One of The Best of our Instagram Love - I've highlighted our favorite item from each photo, check out our instagram @littlehollowlogan to find the rest of the shops involved!

We met Courtney of @crewandco & Crew & Co early on in the game & fell in love with her sweet and positive spirit, not to mention her hand-lettered faith and uplifting designs during one of her ready to ship sales. Her All of God's Grace in One Tiny Face tee has become one of our all time favorites, along with Courtney herself! She has become a close friend and Logan and my older boys, too, rep her items! Looking forward to revealing those photos!

One of the sweetest mamas I have ever met, Maria of @thesweetpotatoe & The Sweet Potatoe, makes these striped pants we won in a giveaway that Logan has worn again and again and again. One of my favorite parts of shopping small is meeting the mama behind the item, the maker, who pours their heart, soul and love into each item, and sometimes having all night conversations with them as is the case with Maria!!

Another mention to @craftylittlejay of Hashtag Market who sent us her gorgeous Vintage Gold Moccs. He wore these things until he could wear them no more. We are ever grateful for her faith in @bjbphotos and his magic work with photos!!

Nelz of @heartofgoldapparel & Heart of Gold Apparel makes this For I am His & He is Mine hoodie. Nelz was our very first entire small shop shoot client and has become a mentor for so many Christian handmade shops. We are forever indebted to her faith in us to pull off shooting her Fall 2015 line as well as her continued mentorship!!

Another mention to Nichole of @wildlyloved & Wildly Loved who makes these amazing Jesus baggies. It is safe to say this is one of my favorite mamas in the entire world. This girl has been through the ringer and back & she keeps shining through. Her joy emits in every note of her voice. Her three precious boys are going to be amazing men from the faith and encouragement she holds in every part of her being.

Wow, time is running out. I forgot how cathartic blogging is, but also time consuming. This photo is perfect for our final photo. Our very first whole shop photo shoot with Heart of Gold Apparel and a mini photo shoot for another of my absolute favorite mamas in the whole world, Cambria of @kanebabyboutique and Kane Baby Boutique. She sent us her adorable Johnny Cash romper and put her faith in us to shoot her shop items, not just this once, but many times. I am so grateful for her friendship, encouragement, and pure heart as she has become a close friend!!!

Another mention to Chandra of @poshpaxdesigns at Posh Pax Designs with her infamous blocks that have made many a photo shoot a pleasant experience, not to mention more stylish. This mama lives just a few hours in me and it is on my agenda to meet her!! She now makes absolutely stunning dream catchers, but her blocks forever have a place in our memories!

Finally, I can't leave without a shout out to Jamie of @maadmoxxie & Maad Moxxie, who started our mocc obsession with her adorable booties graduating to her style a million different ways boots. If you haven't bought adorable shoes for your little and have been considering, go start with hers!!! She will blow your socks off with her quality and sweet heart!

These are just a few of the mamas we've been working with for awhile.  A million more photos and mamas we've met more recently are queued, but they will wait for another day! Instant interaction and community Instagram provides is an experience you won't easily forget. What blog world once was to me, Instagram has become. Bloggers, see you on the Instagram side! !Come join me at @littlehollowlogan, @bjbphotos and @roseburkhardt !
