A few weeks ago I got to do my first toddler toy shoot and what was unique about this shoot is the owners of Bannor Toys are right here in Des Moines! Stacey, co-owns the business with her husband Jesse, and together they make organic wooden toys. If you are local you might have seen them down at the Farmer's Market!
This mini shoot was for the launch of their new Bannor KIDS Collection Furniture which launched this June. They now have desks, chairs, stools in various sizes, storage units for toys and of course their wide variety of wooden toys were in the shoot as well. This shoot was so much fun for the kid models who just got to play and be themselves the entire time. It's awesome to see the product being kid approved right in front of your eyes :)
I love supporting handmade shops because they are from families like mine that have these businesses to support their young families and to meet Stacey and her kids was really inspiring to me. Their business started in their basement and is now a thriving company with a huge studio right here in Des Moines. Pretty cool.
