A sneak peek from this weekend: gold pants, high tops and a nautical scarf…all on a 17 month old. She is one hipster tod.

Life is grand next to the pool in late February…especially when you are three years old and sporting rockin’ shades.
And you can stick your tongue in your nose.
Once upon a time, actually once upon today, there is a magical place in the beautiful plains of Boulder Colorado called Ziji Early Elementary. At Ziji the kids are free to play, discover, explore and witness…they are encouraged and supported by some of the most loving teachers and parents I’ve ever seen…and the space around them is INCREDIBLE! Imagine a beautiful home converted into a school where every corner sparks creativity and imagination…building blocks galore, art stations that make me want to PAINT!, a library full of books and comfy couches, a yard with so much room to run and neighbors who are horses. I was fortunate to get to spend a day at Ziji capturing some of the little details of the school and let me just say the following images don’t even scratch the surface. This place is seriously magical. I want to have a kid just so he/she could start his/her schooling in a place like this!
Since the world seems to be covered in snow (all except for California and the warm southern states), here is some sand…and an upside down owl:
Yes’m I’m in love with this little girl and her creative, warm and very welcoming family. I am so in love that I could have easily made this a 25872938753897 image post but I tried to restrain myself. Actually, as I write this I feel the draw to share more because their little girl and their home were just so inspiring. Reason #902385092385 why I love living in the bay area: such awesome and modern San Fran families!
The folks at DwellStudio were kind enough to feature the previously posted family session involving their gate azure pillows and papier-mâché animal heads. I love working with moms like Jeanne Moeschler…her modern interior design eye makes kid photo shoots that much more photogenic (even though her kids were already overly cute!). I’m a major modern design fan myself so her home + cute kids = MAJOR WIN! If you need guidance with interior design for your home let me know…I’d love to put you in touch with Jeanne. And of course, THANKS DwellStudio!
This is what you get when you have really cute kids and a home full of modern design eye candy…

I got really lucky. I was fortunate to photograph an amazing family with wonderful kids in an impeccable modern Eichler home with lots of ammmmmmazing light. We had a pancake breakfast together, ate some KitKats, picked carrots, did a bit of gardening and practiced our yoga moves! (well, they did all that stuff…I just photographed it and ate pancakes).
And have you met Mr. Penguin on a Chair? He is Scuba Dude‘s sage tax advisor. I think Mr. Penguin needs some glasses and a tie to really fit the part.
And! Exciting announcement! If you are in love with Scuba Dude and Mr. Penguin as much as I am you can purchase a limited edition (unframed) print on Etsy! I know, you are thinking “Ali, this is super delayed timing especially for someone who works in a retail world.” Well, I’m moving as fast as I can with all that I’m trying to do. So, small steps. But, I’d say Scuba Dude makes for one stellar gift for the holidays. Ohhhhhhh yeah.
Go get a Scuba Dude! The AsziChild Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/aszichild
