Hello and Happy Monday!
Here are a few images of the cat (my new paper animal kit I released in the shop last week) shot by Maria Del Rio. I had so much fun styling this little playroom for the girls! They had fun drawing, dancing, jumping on the bed, reading stories…
As you can tell, I am a little obsessed by the light purple and apricot colors lately with a little touch of neon! Check my Instagram for more photo inspiration.
The clothes are from Zara Kids and Old Navy. The neon orange chairs are Mini Bertoias. The lights are from BrightLab!
I had fun making this bed from a palette I found and spray painted light purple. I think the result looks pretty cool and Lula was so happy when she saw it.
A big thanks to my little models, how cute is little Vivian?! She was so perfect for this shoot because she looooves cats! Every time I see her she wears cat ears!
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 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.
The logo was created by Christine Castro Hughes.
Here is a new paper portrait I just finished for a San Francisco family! Another fun project to work on!
The raccoon is now in the shop! More animals coming very soon!
Hello! Are you as excited as I am that there’s only 3 days left until Christmas?! I can’t wait to be playing in the snow in Tahoe with Lula friday and get cozy under a blanket watching movies! A much needed week of vacation!
Here are a couple of fun images I made in collaboration with the talented Eva Black and her beautiful lettering work.

Sorry for the lack of post lately, these past couple weeks have been a little complicated between Lula sick, the jet lag and the big pile of work that was waiting for me when we came back from vacation. Thank god my new intern just arrived and Lula seems to finally getting better. I hate seeing her so weak, she is usually such a happy girl with a lot of energy and almost never cries.
Here are some new illustrations I made for the Netherlands magazine Libelle. This is for a guide about going outdoor on adventures with your girlfriends. All I am thinking about right now! In 14 months with Lula, I never spent a night away from her, not even a full day. I never felt the need to escape for a little bit and I love so much spending the weekends with my little family, those moments are so precious to me. But maybe it would be the time for a nice weekend to relax with friends…rent a little cabin in the woods and explore nature.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend full of adventures!
