My favorite newborn products

Michelle Stoker favorite newborn products

My sweet baby Claire will be four months in just a few days. I feel like she was just born but also like she’s always been part of our family. I’m so glad she’s ours! Now that she’s out of the newborn stage and I’ve had some time to reflect on the past few months, I wanted to share a list of my favorite newborn products. I hope this list is helpful for new parents as you make your baby registry and finish setting up your nursery. I remember how overwhelmed I felt while researching ALL the baby items. There is so. much. stuff. out there marketed towards new parents. My best advice would be to remember that your baby needs just a few basics, everything else is just extra. Although the extra stuff definitely helps. 🙂 Here’s a list of my favorite newborn products that I would definitely recommend to any new parent.

Tampa birthday photographer

My sweet friend Nicole recently turned 30 and we celebrated with a backyard photo session! It was so much fun! I love that she took the time and energy to have this special milestone captured. A 30 & Fabulous sash, tiara, flowers, champagne, balloons and a cake were the perfect accessories for Nicole’s birthday photos. Her sweet little daughter joined us for a few photos, too! Loved this photo session, I would love to do more birthday celebration sessions in the future!

Happy 30th Birthday, Nicole!

Tampa small business owner

I am so excited to share my sweet friend, Samantha, on the blog today! You might recognize her as the gorgeous bride in this Honeymoon Island elopement from last year. Loooved their beautiful, intimate wedding! Samantha is the owner and creative genius of DJG Creations. She specializes in creating custom shirts, tumbler cups, keychains and so much more. She has created a few adorable t-shirts for James and a matching set of tank tops for my sister and I for a recent Backstreet Boys concert. She’s also made a perfectly glittered tumbler cup with my photography logo on it, a fire truck tumbler for James and a beautiful glitter and watercolor floral cup for my sister. If you have a vision, Samantha can help create it and make it on a cup, shirt or more! She is so talented and I love to see the new creations that she makes! I had the privilege of photographing Samantha for some new branding photos for her business. I love that she brought a few of her favorite cups to show off. SO pretty!! We also took a few pictures of Samantha and her adorable son in their matching t-shirts. 

If you are local to Tampa, you can pick up your products from Samantha in the Westchase area. If you’re not local, she ships her products!! Check her out on Facebook here and on Instagram here.  So proud of you, Sam!

I had so much fun photographing the Wackes family for their mini session a few months ago! We are in the same life group at church and get together every Sunday for dinner and fellowship with a few other couples (well, we do it on zoom calls now. Can’t wait to see them again in person hopefully soon!). Their daughter, Tiffany,  is such a little model! Thanks, Kelly and Christian, for the opportunity to photograph your sweet family!
