Today, we are thrilled to be sharing with you this sigh-worthy classic country maternity shoot from Tennessee. Charity’s maternity session for little baby Nash included his brother John Maven, who was so excited to be a big brother (and we can’t take our eyes off of this blonde-haired, blue-eyed cutie.) These playful shots captured by the talented, Smith Studios Photography, show off a whole lot of love and excitement for the baby-to-be.

To make your family maternity session stand out, color coordinate your outfits. We are loving the light blue and white hued attire and the baby bump looks like the perfect place for big brother. This classic country maternity shoot is a dream come true.

Tiny Prints is a company passionate about helping parents celebrate their children as they grow. That is a huge reason why, for the past three years, we have partnered with Baby2Baby, an organization that provides low-income children with the necessities they deserve. Part of this mission is hosting a Mother’s Day Party each year for a group of children and their mothers. In conjunction with Baby2Baby and our very own designer Jill Smith, we were able to make this Mother’s Day Party unforgettable. View our gallery and words from Jill Smith below.

This year’s Mother’s Day party took place at Jessica Biel’s new, swanky, yet family-friendly restaurant, Au Fudge. The celebrity mom herself was there joining in on all the fun activities set up for the day, playing, chatting and helping create the perfect environment for the kids and their moms to spend some worry-free, quality time together. My part of this mission was to create an art activity for the children to do on the day of the event. It’s something I look forward to every year.

A delicious and healthy brunch was served for everyone, along with gorgeous desserts for a little morning sugar rush. There was a cookie decorating station where the kids could add their own creative touch with icing and sprinkles. There was a fascinating bubble man that entertained the children as well as the adults with his impressive tricks and gigantic bubbles. Cinderella stopped by to read books and there was an airbrush tattoo station. Mothers were treated to manicures and also pampered at a hair salon station for blow-outs and braids. This party had something for every kid and every mom!

My portion of the day was leading the art activity for the kids. I designed poster-sized thank-you notes for the kids to paint for their moms to show a little early Mother’s Day love and appreciation. Each oversized card was printed on thick, white paper and colorful paints and fun stickers were provided so they could decorate to their little hearts’ desire. We helped them get started, but they clearly didn’t need our guidance for long. Their creative juices took hold and they all did such a fantastic job expressing themselves through art. I was actually pleasantly surprised that with all of the other amazing activities and cookies close by that many of the children sat and painted for so so long. They were proud and excited to give the huge cards to their moms. Some children even did 2 or 3 cards!

At the end of the party, once everyone’s face was painted and the cookies were all eaten, it was time for the kids to head back to school. That’s when all of the volunteers (including celebrity moms Jessica Biel, Rachel Zoe and Kelly Rowland) got to help with the most important job of the day — handing out the personalized gift bags to each mother and child. The children’s bags were full of essentials prepared exactly to their individual needs. They received warm jackets, pajamas and numerous outfits in their sizes, sleeping bags, healthy snacks, organic toiletries, books and art supplies. The moms received a sturdy tote bag with stationery and a water bottle. In addition to their big breakfast that morning, each child also left with a boxed lunch to go in a new, sturdy backpack.

Without a doubt it was a beautiful event. The children were so happy, kind, appreciative and sweet. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to give back to the community as an artist, designer and mother. The amazing work of Baby2Baby and the generosity of Tiny Prints is always inspiring.

Fortunately the giving can continue! Tiny Prints makes a donation to Baby2Baby for every birth announcement purchased on their site. I designed an exclusive Baby2Baby collection to honor this incredible mission of giving back including birth announcements, party invitations, personal stationery…all with coordinating pieces.
