If you’re anything like me you’ve always been a little interested in the behind the scenes of a product shoot. So today I wanted to share my experience with our first Sohp Shop photoshoot! We shot with Charleston photographer Leigh Weber, one of my most favorite photographers ever. She’s the talent behind the underwater photos you see all over the internet. I wanted the first shoot to be fairly laid back and flexible, so we did it at our house over the course of two days. We needed studio photography for our website, simple product shots with a white background along with a good mix of styled product shots as well as some photos with kids. We set up a little studio in both our family room and our sunroom, and it was truly the most fun and stress free experience.

So I’m just going to share some behind the scenes iPhone snaps along with a few of the shots that Leigh captured. As you can see in the photo below, I had to be kinda quick because Lilly didn’t like me double-shooting. When she caught me I think she actually said, “Mooom Leigh’s taking the photos”.

We asked two of our friends, Georgia and Grace, to come help out and be in some photos. We were supposed to have one more model too but she wasn’t feeling well the day of so we will hopefully get to include her next time.

These girls were fantastic. Lilly had the idea to throw confetti and they turned out to be some of my most favorite shots from the shoot! We really just played around a lot and tried anything.

Leigh managed to get Fletch to take a few photos, too!

Lilly styling…

Grace showed up with the cutest sparkly manicure. She probably went to The Water Room. Adorable.

There are a lot more photos on our site – check ’em out! I wanted lots of photos in our product listings, I think that’s the blogger in me. I’m already excited to do another shoot with Leigh. She’s just so talented and the most calming, kind person to have by your side. Which is exactly what you want in a potentially high anxiety situation. I can’t thank you enough, Leigh!

And shameless plug – your kids want Sohp Shop! Your neighbor’s kids want Sohp Shop. Your friends and co-worker’s kids want Sohp Shop. We are a clean soap for kids that is not only non-toxic, but is also super FUN. Every ball of soap has a surprise toy hidden inside, making hand washing a whole lot more fun! Dreamed up by a kid, for kids. Check out our Sohp Shop website here!

Well it’s Spring Break week here, and you’re looking at it. Just a few months ago the kids were begging to go to Florida. Now they’d be happy to go to TCBY down the street. But we’re making the best of it and are FINE. We are fine. And that’s what matters. I have a feeling we are looking at a couple-many-few weeks ahead of quarantine. So while this round up may look like it’s for the kids today, it’s really for all of us ;)

The Swurfer Swing might just be my kids favorite thing we own. Tip, hang it in your front yard where your kids can be seen and – boom, they want to go outside! Now I know that waterslide bounce house looks crazy and it might be over the top, but imagine the fun. A giant connect four game? Yes, please. Fletch has those shorts and they pretty awesome really – water resistant too! And Lilly has these pajamas and they’re just the cutest!

A lot of these items would make good Easter gifts too – like that cute Unicorn and scrabble junior. And how cool are those customizable stuffed chairs?? There are so many cool fabrics.

Do you realize that we are just 6 short days away from Easter? It’s crunch time to order Easter basket supplies (myself included)! I asked 11 of my mom friends to share their top 3 items that they are putting in their kids’ baskets this year! Here’s all the inspo we all need :)


“We English don’t usually do Easter baskets, but this year feels different. Cadbury’s chocolate eggs are always a given.”

Unicorn Surprise Soap | Croquet Set | Cadbury Chocolate Eggs

ALLIE MOOD, South Carolina:

Allie has one of the most inspiring family feeds on instagram. Her daughter Poppy is a sweet friend to Lilly, too!

The Good Egg Book | Fortune Surprise Soap | Jellycat Stuffed Watermelon


“I’m ordering a lot from local stores in my town who are delivering! I’m also ordering A Raven’s Nest by Raven Roxanne and the brand new book Ordinary Love by Teil Duncan.”

Big Bubble Wand | Pom Pom Fuzzy Bunny | Unicorn Soap


“This photo is from Mother’s Day. Remember when we could go outside?!” (fondly) Jen has the cutest kids shop and I’ve loved following her family on Instagram!

Rubix Cube | Land of Dough | Unicorn Surprise Soap

GRAY BENKO, South Carolina:

Gray is no newbie around here. She and her fam are very near & dear to us. I bet my kids spent more time on FaceTime talking to her kids this past weekend than they talked to me.

Instant Camera | Fortune Soap | Pastels Art Kit


“I always add some sort of art supply to their baskets, either giant chalk or paint! And these handmade dolls provide 10 meals per doll!”

Eco-Finger Paint | Cuddle + Kind Dolls | Ninja Surprise Soap

JACKIE ROBINSON, South Carolina:

Jackie is the creative force behind Sohp Shop’s branding and packaging! She nailed it and we couldn’t be happier!

Easter Mad Libs | Sloomoo Slimes | Unicorn & Ninja Soap

CLAIRE O’BRYAN, South Carolina:

“The kids will be so jazzed about their new surprise soap! My husband is in charge of the COVID response for our state of South Carolina so I bought these as soon as they came out, knowing we would use them religious!”

Invisible Ink Markers | Pool Toys | Unicorn Surprise Soap


“Now that Ralph is 2.5, this Easter will be the “first” that he can really comprehend. A couple of weeks ago I hid some eggs for him to practice and he was SO excited.”

Excavator Toy Truck | Ninja Surprise Soap | Balance Bike

MOLLY FIENNING, South Carolina:

Molly came into my life and instantly turned it better. She’s a loyal and fun friend and has been incredibly generous with her business and branding knowledge.

Babiators Sunglasses | Ninja Soap | Elliot & The Moonship


Bailey is the creative force behind one of my favorite linen brands, Biscuit Home. Her home aesthetic is one of my most favorites and you should follow her especially for a peek inside her homes!

Sohp Shop 3 Pack | Play-Doh Stampers | Chalk Blast Balls

I’m so grateful for each and every one of these amazing and talented ladies who took the time to share their Easter Basket picks. (I didn’t include the girls who didn’t mention Sohp Shop.) Just kidding. I love all of their ideas! I’m off to order the basket goods!! And you still need a basket too, I love this one! Have a great Monday, Everyone!

So I have some really big news, you guys… We launched Sohp Shop!!

So yesterday was kind of a big (and busy) day over here! I hope you don’t hold it against me that I didn’t get this post up earlier. I’m SO happy to tell you all about it now. We’ve been working on bringing Sohp Shop to life for over a year! Who’s “we”? Lilly, Fletcher, and me. Oh and Josh, too (sorry Josh). What makes this so special to me is that Sohp Shop was Lilly’s idea! She came up with the idea of hiding small toys in soap “to encourage kids to wash their hands” while making Christmas gifts back in 2018. She and Fletcher sold them at a lemonade stand in our front yard, and they were such a big hit that we got the idea to make them in a larger scale.

I won’t bore you with all it took to get the product here today (but I do want to share a lot more about our process of starting a new business from scratch in the days/weeks to come – I feel like there could be a lot to unpack and talk about here), but we are very proud of the time and effort we gave to make Sohp Shop the best that we could make it be.

We launched with three themes: Unicorn, Ninja, and Fortune. Inside each ball of soap is a surprise toy! The idea is to make hand washing feel less like a chore and a lot more fun. The more you wash, the closer you get to the surprise! We hope to expand our themes in the year ahead and offer more fun ways for kids to wash their hands and create healthy habits. And rest assured that we took care when choosing our ingredients.


There has never been a more important time to make hand washing a fun and consistent habit for kids! Come check out our new fancy schmancy Sohp Shop website! You can see more of our story on our About Us page here and check out all of our products and collections on our Shop page here!

Yesterday I had lunch at the new 167 Raw location on King St (which is amazing, by the way) and Julia and I wore our new GMG dresses that just launched yesterday. I think this is one of my favorite collections of her’s yet! The dresses are light and airy and have me so ready for Spring!

I’m wearing the new Giselle dress in pink, and it comes in a pretty blue as well. It has a smocked waistline and a really lovely, light floral print. It’s so comfortable! I paired it with these raffia heels and this structural jute handbag. Julia is wearing the Torey dress in the prettiest shade of green. How cute are the ruffled short sleeves?

Isn’t the whole new February collection gorgeous? That white dress is one of the best little white dresses I’ve seen. And this blue floral dress with the tiered silhouette is exactly what I want to wear everyday.
