Taking Indoor Pictures

Taking Indoor Pictures

Hi friends it has been a while since I posted here on my blog.  I will try my best to post more often.  🙂 As many of you know Naila is a Small Shop brand rep on Instagram which means that I have to take pictures of her almost every day to showcase outfits and bows.

The weather here is Texas changes a lot, on the days that it is cold or rainy I do indoor pictures.  I had decided that we were going to quit brand repping for the winter because the lighting inside of our home is terrible for pictures and outside would be too cold to even attempt to take pictures.

Luckily another Brand Rep mom recommended a lighting kit on Amazon that is inexpensive and guess what?!  It works! 🙂  This lighting kit has made me one happy mom because I can continue to do what I enjoy doing which is dressing up my doll and taking pictures of her year round.  I will link the lighting kit here Photography Photo Portrait Studio lighting kit, it comes with a carrying/ storing bag to make it easier to store or even take along with you.

By the way if you are wondering if the lighting kit is difficult to put together, it isn’t at all.  Follow my little’s account on Instagram @nailamaritim.

I am back!

It has been a while since I posted here on my blog!  Luckily I have people around me that encouraged me to return to blogging. 🙂  Thank you to the people that were taking time out of their day to read my blog, I hope that you continue to read now that I am back.  🙂

To start off, Naila is now 16 months old, she is all over the place and she has such an amazing little personality.  She keeps me busy!  Check out her Instagram @nailamaritim she is a small shop representative and in her highlights we offer lots of discount codes for amazing clothing, and accessories for family and friends.

No major changes in the past few months, I am still a SAHM.  I take pictures of Naila almost every day as the weather allows for our small shop repping.  If you follow her Instagram you will understand what it all cosists of.  Always remember to support small shops.  It is important because you are what will keep them in business.

I am currently brainstorming on amazing topics to talk about here.  I wanted to ask you fellow readers to provide input on what you would like to read about next.  I would love the feedback because I want to keep my readers engaged as much as possible.  Leave a comment here letting me know or message me on Instagram or Facebook if that is easier for you, please and thank you!

Maricela Monday’s: Weekly Favorites

Maricela Monday’s: Weekly Favorites

Happy Monday, I hope that you are having an amazing day!  Today you should shine so brightly that others have no choice but to light up with you. 🙂

These past few weeks have been great for Naila and I.  I am literally her personal photographer and honestly I enjoy taking pictures of her and I adore dressing her up.  It makes my soul happy!  As a stay at home mom it was important for me to find a hobby, something to do while taking care of Naila and for now I have found it. 🙂  I can say that it isn’t for everyone to love.  I will talk about how Naila became a brand rep and how important it is to support small businesses in another blog post.  Now that I am done rambling about this now lets move on to my weekly favorites.

Today I will be sharing my favorite skin care products that can be found on Amazon and they are very inexpensive.

  1. The first item is the St.Ives Facial Scrub and Mask that I use every morning.  This facial scrub is amazing, it helps keep my oily skin under control and leaves my skin feeling smooth and re-energized.  I definitely recommed it.
  2. Next are the Yes To Tomatoes Clear Skin Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Wipes, long name but worth it.  🙂  These are little black wipes that rid skin of nasty impurities.  Perfect for taking off makeup, to detoxify skin, and deep clean.  Try these out!
