My absolute favorite part of running is selecting what are hands-down the cutest new baby gifts, and then designing and photographing them for our site. A ton of hard work and creative magic all converged on our latest action packed photoshoot weekend, and I love giving everyone a behind the scenes look.

For all our photoshoots we've been so lucky to have real and very stylish homeowners open their doors to our crew. Our photographer Jason has done all the product images for the site (the images without cute kids) and it's always great to see him work his magic! It was also great to have Jason's assistant Brigham and stylist Sharlene back to help create another set of new Makaboo product shots. After so many photoshoots we're a well oiled photoshooting team and I'm so grateful to work with such a talented group of people! Oh and nothing could keep our Chief Baby Officer, Walt, from overseeing the shoot just to be sure we're always keeping it real for the baby set. He kept napping on the job though....
