First you count the hours, then the days, the weeks and finally months. And then suddenly one day, bam, your baby is one year old. Where did the time go? And now, it’s already 6 months ago my not so little baby girl celebrated her first birthday. And because time seems to move faster and faster there is nothing more I want to capture these special moments. So from Chloé‘s birth we have marked these milestones with special photo shoots. I really love to do these kinds of special shoots and I can only hoop the pictures one day will make Chloé just as happy as they always make me.   | Me: Shirt FILIPPA K | Skirt SANDRO | Heels ZARA | Chloé: Dress H&M girls | Shoes ZARA girls |

For me Christmas is all about old and new traditions. Old traditions like dressing up and having dinner with my family and friends and new traditions in the making. As a mama I love to start new traditions, that hopefully Chloé will remember and maybe continue once she gets older. One of the new traditions we are starting this year is adopting the typical American way of spending Christmas morning opening up presents underneath the Christmas tree. And off course we do it in style. No old pyjama‘s or washed out lounge-wear for us, but brand new, all black, easy going lounge-wear. For me it’s a comfortable 2 piece from Zara and for Chloé a cool onesie from H&M. Because creating a tradition is one thing but looking good while doing so is just as important to me, especially when pictures are being taken. Can’t wait to look back in about 10 years from now. Then, I want to wish you all a fabulous Christmas with all of your loved ones and all of your favorite traditions. Hopefully you will also enjoy some great memories and traditions in the making.   xo Hanneke     Me | Sweater and pants […]

What do you say when H&M asks you if you would like to do an exclusive photo shoot for their new H&M Studio Kids line? You say yes of course. And so it happened that on a morning in August, with temperatures rising up to 30 degrees that day, we were shooting these super cool matching fur coats. Circumstances like these brings out the worst in people and shows who the real professionals are. And I have to say, Chloé already is a real professional. The whole time she was smiling, clapping her hands and flirting with the camera. What’s that to say about me? I guess she’s just so used to being photographed all the time that it is just normal and fun to her. And she loves all the attention of course, but then, who does’t. So, before I’m turning into a Kardashian kinda momanager, please stop me :)    | Photo’s exclusive for Fabulous Mama and –  Photo’s by LEX SELMAN | | Me: Coat H&M Studio | Chloé: Coat H&M Studio mini-me |
