Last Fall, we were asked by Tommy and Lauri of Little Padded Seats if we could help decorate their new store. Little Padded Seats is a cloth diaper store that was located in Valley Junction and they decided to move to Valley West Mall in early Dec. Kevin and I have long been fans of the store. We used cloth diapers on our son and we love the personalized service and unique products the store offers. Tommy and Lauri have used all the products in the store on their children so when you ask their opinion about something, you get honest feedback. Little Padded Seats specializes in green products so when you buy their diaper rash cream or laundry detergent you know you’re using the most gentle products for your baby. Little Padded Seats also carries baby carriers, clothing, toys, cloth wipes, training pants, and so much more. As you can tell, it is one of Kevin and mine’s favorite stores in Des Moines.
Kevin and I have felt blessed to get to know Tommy and Lauri the past couple of years and were so happy to decorate their new store. We ended up doing a month long modeling search with their clients showcasing some of their favorite products. What was fun was, Tommy and Lauri didn’t want typical, boring posed pictures you see in most stores, they loved our fun, photojournalistic style to our work and they wanted us to continue with that.
Here are some of our favorite photos from the modeling search. We loved getting to meet more parents in the cloth diaper community and we hope to photograph all your children very soon. You were all incredible to work with.
