I’m sure some of you wonder, “who are the faces behind Hip Kid”? Well, mystery solved!
First, there are two of us. We are moms, just like most of you. We LOVE the Instagram community and have both been privately posting and supporting small businesses for a while now. Some of you know us, some don’t. But, in any case, if you don’t know us, come and find our personal profiles and give us a follow. Talk to us. We are one of you!
Hello and welcome! I am the main voice behind this blog and the photog behind “Hip Kid Photo”, an arm of Hip Kid Fashion (coming soon). About 10 months ago, I fell in love with Instagram. It wasn’t just the community of amazing shops and mamas that drew me in, which I had heard were incredible (and truly are). What intrigued me was the idea of capturing small snippets of my life and posting them in a box - a time capsule. My son was then 3 and I was pregnant with my daughter. I have chronicled nearly every day since then with a photograph (or many). I watched my son grow nearly a year behind the lens (and of course in front). I saw his style emerge, as he started helping me choose his outfits and vocalized his likes and dislikes. We have joined several brand rep families and have enjoyed helping shops grow and find their place. It’s been a fun adventure! I’ve been wanting to engage further with everyone I’ve met and reach a larger audience to meet others. This venture was borne from that desire. I was a lawyer in my past life and have always been a lover of the written word. Thank you for joining us on this journey. I hope we make it worth your while!
Hello, my name is Debbie and I'm the stylist and a moderator for Hip Kid Fashion. I was working as a full time Chiropractor before I had my first son almost 4 years ago. I struggled to continue with my then schedule because I wanted to spend more time with my baby. By the time I had my second boy, I decided that practicing part-time was the best choice for me. I signed up for IG in Sept, 2013 while at my brother-in-laws wedding. His friends there was all hashtagging iPhone snaps to #jjwedding and there I was, with no idea what hashtagging even was! When I came across kids clothing shops on IG (I had previously used Etsy a bit) my credit cards basically flew out of my wallet. I had a bad addiction that most of us can certainly understand. I've developed a love for styling and accessorizing my boys. I love capturing their moments and outfits on an almost-daily basis. I also found a new love for photography (something I studied in college) and was fortunate enough to take a lesson and workshop with one of my favorite photographers. Being a rep and enthusiast for some amazing shops drove me to practice my photog skills and bring shops and people together, something I really enjoy doing! We hope you enjoy this journey as much as we surely will!
