We love Fort Worth - from the many fun & funky places to take your little people, to all the local businesses that embody what this town is about! So we partnered with Elle Boone Photography to showcase some of our fave @babybydesign looks in a few of our fave locales.
Get to know the ladies from Gifted:
Esther & Eloise
Gifted is Fort Worth’s destination lifestyle shop for the well-curated. We highlight design-conscious home and personal gifts for the creative individual.
We seek out purposeful and unique products to provide customers a hand selected assortment for discovering. The brands we bring to customers eschew trends while celebrating the artful and timeless. The makers we carry believe their products can spark inspiration, boost happiness and be kind to the earth, body and soul.
Our commitment is to seek out makers and small businesses that stay true to this belief.
a little bit about Esther and Eloise:
what is her favorite word:
When I asked her she said "Christmas". She's obsessed with Christmas and asks to listen to Christmas music year round. But she says "actually" a lot.. it's pretty hilarious considering she understands how to use it properly.
what is her favorite toy:
Right now she's really into role playing so I would say her little Nell Hazel Village doll is top on her list. Hazel Village was one of first kiddo brands I carried in my shop and it was the first thing I let her "buy" from my store. She carries her around everywhere. Sometimes she asks me to swaddle her because "she's only a baby and she gets cold."
what are your "can't live without" items for mom life:Stasher bags for storing everything from leftovers, snacks to clothing items that get dirty on the road. It's dish-washable and eco-friendly so it's definitely a go-to for me.
Kinto water bottle. Thirst tends to strike my daughter at the most inopportune moments.
Mogi Mogi baby oatmeal bath sachets. I've been using these bath sachets since my daughter was born because she had some battles with eczema. She still loves playing with the sachet in the bath and it creates a soothing oatmeal tea in her bath which has been great for her skin. I started ordering it for my store because I am such a believer in it.
Honest wipes. They're the most cloth like wipes I've found and you can get so much bang for your buck with one wipe. They also get a huge plus because it has no bad chemicals in it.
favorite local places to hang / play:
We hang out a lot at the Craftwork Coffee in The Foundry since it's right next to my shop. The baristas there are really sweet to Eloise and she loves sitting on the mini bench in the corner for kiddos eating her lemon blueberry muffin.
We have memberships to the Science and History Museum and the Zoo, so you can find us there at least once a week. It's so worth it!
Trinity Park is our favorite place to hang out, have a picnic and run around. Especially with the new addition of the Dream Park--it's the perfect place for our whole family to have a chill day together.
Melt Ice Creams. Somehow I always get talked into taking her to Melt Ice Creams when we're out. It doesn't require a lot of arm twisting on her part.

About Elle Boone Photography:
I am a wife to Michael, the goofiest and wisest man I know. I am a mom to a wild boy, named Hudson and the sweetest little pea Lucy who just joined our family in February (on my birthday!). I love Jesus and my desire is to make Him known and bring Him glory in this lifetime. We moved to Fort Worth from Austin a couple years ago, for Michael to start medical school. I had a dream job on Young Life staff at the University of Texas at Austin after college, discipling college girls. Then, God just placed photography in my lap and it has been such a blessing to be pursuing that these past few years. I love the work of capturing and celebrating love, its such a beautiful gift.
