Hey! I recently move into a new studio! It’s located in the sunny Mission District. It feels so good to have my own space and get ready everyday (I used to work in my pj’s and shower at 2pm). Before we had Lula, her nursery was my studio, then it became half nursery half studio but very soon I had to move all my stuff out of her room and put my desk in our bedroom. It worked for a few months but then I needed a real space dedicated to my work. I thought it would be hard at first because I loved working from home but I am really glad I made this decision. I ride my bike there everyday and the best thing is that it’s half way from our home and Lula’s nanny. So I can pick her up after my work day is done, she’s only 5 minutes away.
More photos to come soon! This one is from Maria Del Rio.
There’s a new pet in the shop for you to adopt: the cat! It is wheat and white with a copper nose and it is available with 3 different backdrop color options: light purple, peach or neon pink. I’ll post more photos soon!
I was looking through my photos, organizing files and found these photos my sister took of me and Lula last september when we were in France, in my hometown Lyon. She was 13 months old. One of the things I missed the most from living in France is le marché (farmer’s market)! These photos were taken on a sunny sunday morning at the Marché du quai Saint-Antoine.
I studied 4 years in Aix-en-Provence, in south of France where farmer’s market are the best! There was one at the little place down my building, I used to pass by every morning on my way to school. The smells, the colors…made me so happy! I would go almost every weekend.
Oh and also the pink praline brioche! Which is a speciality from Lyon.
I am excited to share a little paper portrait/mascot I made for my good friend Sarah Wert who is a new mum of an adorable baby girl named Willa. Sarah is also a fantastic kids photographer based in San Francisco. She took the photos of Lula’s nursery when I was still pregnant and captured my maternity style (also took my engagement photos and my products lookbook). Sarah created Hello, Margot as a blog where she features some of the best in kids products, fashion, and design and also shares her experience as a new mom.

Last weekend we took the train for a long ride (but worth it at the end, watching the sunset from San Luis Obispo to SB was so magical) to Santa Barbara early on Saturday morning. We spent the night there and drove to LA on Sunday, had lunch and did a little bit of shopping (Pebble and Heyoka Hideout) in the dreamy Topanga Canyon on the way. In LA we spent a couple night in this super fun Airstream in Venice, just a few blocks from Abbot Kinney street and the beach. It was a really fun and unique experience! The property has a lot of character and the garden is beautiful. Lula made friend with Felix the bunny and the flamingos. I loved the outdoor shower! Would love to stay there again but maybe during summer, when the nights are warmer.
We went to LACMA for the first time, Lula had so much fun in the noodles and the urban lights! We spent some time at the beach, she loves the sand so much I’ve never seen her that happy. She would just let herself fell on the sand, roll and do some fun figures.
Here are a few pics from our trip! Have a great weekend!
She gave a little kiss goodbye to the flamingo!
Have a beautiful Valentine’s day and President’s day weekend! The weather is gorgeous here, we are taking the train tomorrow morning to Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. I am so excited for this little adventure! Packing shorts and sandals… yay!
PS: This photo was taken a couple weekends ago in half moon day. Lula is a beach girl, she loves it so much it became our little family tradition to go on beach walks during the weekend. It feels so good!
Here is a new paper portrait I just finished for a San Francisco family! Another fun project to work on!
Happy Monday friends! Here is a selection of San Francisco colorful houses I posted on my Instagram these past few weeks, because they make me happy and I thought they would put a smile on your face too . When I run in the morning or when I stroll around the Mission District with Lula, I like to snap photos of houses with my iphone.
I hope you have a beautiful week, wherever you are.
The week before Christmas, on a Saturday morning after a couple weeks of intense rain, we took advantage of the few rays of sunshine to go row boating at Stow Lake in the Golden Gate Park. We were not sure how Lula would behave in the boat and how far we could go without her wanting to jump off the boat! She actually did really well and was super excited on this little adventure. Talking to the ducks, wowing at the waterfalls, holding the paddle…
That was our second time at Stow Lake! Here was our first! I can’t wait to do it again!
