Photo essay: Baby's Day Out at Brushstrokes Studio - 510 Families

Photo essay: Baby’s Day Out at Brushstrokes Studio

In collaboration with some local family-friendly companies, we invited parents with pre-crawling babies to spend the morning at Brushstrokes Studio in North Berkeley, putting their infant’s footprints on ceramic pottery pieces.

Sound familiar? We host this event several times per year. Sign up for our email newsletter to a) get a list of weekend activities mailed to you every Friday and b) stay in-the-know about our {510} Families events. (Scroll way down to the bottom of this post to sign up.)

While we were getting set-up, Brian from North Berkeley Investment Partners arrived with his baby girl. He is a Berkeley dad who works in the Solano Avenue office, offering comprehensive financial planning and investment management to Bay Area parents. Brian’s goal is to help his clients align their personal values with their financial decisions.


Nissa Brehmer, our photography partner, shot all the photos in this post and more. Through her East Bay photography business, Babylove, she photographs birth, babies and bonding through the first year. Nissa offered 5-minute mini photo sessions during our event. You can see more of the babies who attended in her online gallery.


In the upstairs studio of Brushstrokes, Babyganics offered diapers and wipes at a changing area, which was well-used by this crowd. All guests were invited to assemble a handy pouch of diapering products (including hand sanitizer, of course!) and take these Babyganics products home with them.

The goody bags we sent everyone home with included a sample of the ultra soft, reusable heart-shaped breastfeeding pads made by Bamboobies (yes, they’re made from bamboo!). Bamboobies offers breastfeeding support products on a mission to ensure that new mothers and babies are happier and healthier, and so is their world.

As always, we are so grateful to work with Brushstrokes Studio, a spacious, bright, art oasis where you can exercise your imagination. Stop by, slow down, and make something beautiful there.
