We are brand content creators, lifestyle photographers, mothers, and down-to-earth humans with a passion for making the world a better place. We typically work with brands that focus on those who identify as women, specifically those who are (or aspire to be) in a mother/parent role, by creating relatable, inclusive, and empowering content.
Our children vary in age from 6 months to 15 years, each with unique needs/abilities – so we not only have a wide range of parenthood experience but we also bring to the table a well-rounded perspective on parenting that helps us create engaging content.
Here’s just a few of our favorite brands that we’ve created content for….. ban.do Binxy Baby Campbells Chipotle Dockatot Dyper Finn & Emma GreenTom Johnson & Johnson Larktale Newton Baby Night Lights Festival Panera Bread Parasol Smarty Pits Superfit Hero Thirdlove True & Co. TWELVElittle Zoe & so many more!

Just a quick PSA to our fellow white entrepreneurs/business owners (with a completely unrelated picture, but this funky blue door in Austin makes me warm and fuzzy) .....⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We all (us included) need to do a better job of realizing when to speak, and when to pause and amplify the voices of others. That lack of awareness has been blatantly apparent over the past few weeks (although not a new problem by any means).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There's a point where you cross the line from supporting a movement, to hijacking a movement, and I think we could all afford to collectively work to exercise some more awareness in that department.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Amplifying the voices of the black people in which you are supporting by sharing their posts in your stories (rather than creating your own, shareable content), and directing your audience's focus and funds directly to those individuals (rather than to YOU/your business), may not get you the engagement and positive reinforcement that you are craving..... but if that's your motivation for working towards social/racial justice, then that's your first issue you need to address.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Additionally, we need to be aware of when it's an inappropriate time to be posting "business as usual" – which may mean you need to go into your post scheduler and pause the content you have automated, is also incredibly important.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These are things we are working on as well, so we by no means mean to ride in on our high horse – but it's something we've noticed and feel like a dialogue needs to be had. We're all going to make mistakes, and it's our job to keep each other accountable and working towards doing better.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We'd love to continue this dialogue – feel free to share your thoughts with us – We're all learning and growing together, and continuing the conversation is crucial!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #weneedtodobetter #awarenessiskey
🌟Fun Fact Friday🌟 Hit us with 1 fun fact about yourself that many people don't know! .....⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'll start – I played soccer for the entirety of my youth, was a state + regional champion, traveled across the country, briefly joined the Olympic Development Program team (short lived because it was so nottt my jam 🤪), and played for the high school team when I was in middle school.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was always one of the smaller players, but known for being super aggressive (which was both a skill and a flaw haha). Maybe surprising to some of you who have only known me in adulthood, since I am pretty passionate but relatively chill for the most part these days, haha.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I still have soccer related nightmares, over 12 years later. Probably will for the next 60 years.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your turn...... what's 1 thing we probably don't know about you?!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #quartermoonco #contentcreator #contentcreation #contentcreators #brandcontent #brandphotography #brandphotographer #lifestylecontent #phillyphotographer #philadelphiaphotographer #nycphotographer #laphotographer #brandimagery #lifestyleblogger #funfactfriday
Unpopular opinion ahead....🤷♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So many people told me to soak up those newborn months because they were the very best. And like, don't get me wrong, I will always cherish those months with our tiny, snuggly little chicken nugget, but.... I'mma be real .... I'll take age 7 months over newborn ANY DAY.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For starters – babies being able to entertain themselves?! THE HOLY GRAIL. Christmas came at prime time this year, as it perfectly coincided with Zayvie's increased interest in toys.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are especially loving our new collection from @mybtoys – including Zayvie's very favorite "Owl Be Back" wobbly toy (some of you who know us personally might know, owls are her thing – she started saying "hoo hoo" like her owl swing at 3 months old!) 🦉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And of course, let us not overlook..... the decrease in fragility, lack of need for head support, and significantly less bottles to make/feed/clean, HOT DAMN👏🏻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I can't possibly be alone – would you pick the 6month+ stage over the newborn days?! If not, what age is your jam?!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . #quartermoonco #contentcreator #contentcreation #contentcreators #brandcontent #brandphotography #brandphotographer #lifestylecontent #phillyphotographer #philadelphiaphotographer #nycphotographer #laphotographer #brandimagery #7monthsold #mybtoys #2020baby #mombloggers #momcontent #parenthoodunplugged #parenthoodmoments #motherhoodjourney #babytoys

If there's one word that most entrepreneurs became very acquainted with in 2020, it's "PIVOT". When shit hit the fan, most folks scrambled and did what entrepreneurs do best – made it work, one way or another.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For us, I'd say it was less of a "pivot" and more of a "roll back". We're still pretty much doing the same things, but bringing it back to the basics. We dropped the frills and have cozied back up to our roots of just creating beautiful brand content and speaking our hearts – which, despite not being the route we expected to take for the past year, has been kind of a beautiful thing.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although, admittedly, we miss the excitement of big commercial productions (and having MODELS, lol), it's been grounding to scale back. As someone hardwired to constantly aim for "bigger & better", it can be challenging to not associate the feeling of "rolling back" with regression, and the feeling of regression with disappointment, and the feeling of disappointment with emotionally/creatively shutting down. Phewww, it's a slippery slope ya'll ⛷️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But every decision we're making is with intention, compassion (for ourselves & others), and a dash of hope that the universe will steer us in the direction that's we're meant to go. And hey, I think that's about the best we can do during these uNpReCeDeNtEd TiMeS, right? 🙃 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What about you......⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Are you Team Pivot 🔄?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Or Team Roll-Back 🔙?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Or Team Still Killin' It As Planned 💪?!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #quartermoonco #contentcreator #contentcreation #contentcreators #brandcontent #brandphotography #brandphotographer #lifestylecontent #phillyphotographer #philadelphiaphotographer #nycphotographer #laphotographer #brandimagery #impactful #purposedrivenlife #purposedrivenbusiness #changemakers #caringforothers #sustainableliving #shopwithpurpose #slowdownandenjoylife #livewithpurpose #pivot
Reminder: If you as a business are unwilling to speak out against white supremacy, with the excuse that you don't want to mix politics with business..... that is because you don't want to upset the white supremacists who are paying your bills. Plain and simple. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ White folks – our shame and guilt can not paralyze us into inaction and submission, nor can our need to conduct business on our social platforms be an excuse to not also use this space and our voices to enact change.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While for many of us, the immediate work needs to be done within our personal lives, offline, we collectively need to commit to using this space to speak up, share the content of black educators & creators, hold each-other accountable, point others in the direction of the resources they need to educate themselves, and most importantly LISTEN TO BLACK PEOPLE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To be clear – we are not experts on racial justice (nor do you need to be to open your mouth and denounce white supremacy), but we are happy to point you towards resources from black educators who are (please DM us). Being overwhelmed is not an excuse for silence/inaction.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you for reading.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ // shot by @thehurstsandco, edited by @quartermoonco⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #quartermoonco #denouncewhitesupremacy #speakupspeakout #philadelphiaphotographer #phillyphotographer #buckscountyphotographer #nycphotographer #LAphotographer #brandphotographer #womanownedbusiness
My heart goes out to the parents and guardians who have to explain the current state of this country (and the world) to children right now. Especially those who have to try to explain it to children with black and brown skin.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you've found your way to our page, I hope we can agree – this is absolutely unacceptable. No matter what you believe as far as politics go – domestic terrorism is inexcusable.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We have now witnessed that intervention without violence IS possible. IT IS POSSIBLE. So why is it that black and brown people are consistently brutalized and imprisoned when they attempt to protest the slaughter of their people, yet white supremacists can vandalize, terrorize, and attempt a coup purely because they don't like the outcome of an election, and walk out on the other side free and unharmed, and even with a souvenir selfie.....?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The absolute very least any of us can do right now is use our voices to say THIS IS WRONG. Say it to whoever will listen. And to those who have to say it and explain it to children right now, our hearts are with you. This is not an easy time to be a parent.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It is one thing to have to explain to a child that bad people are out there – it's another to have to explain to them that people they know, and maybe even people they love, are supporting those bad people, or in some cases ARE those bad people.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And as a reminder to those who need to hear it – it is never too late to speak up and denounce white supremacy. Your words (or lack of words) are important.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sending our love, strength, and support to you all today 🖤
HAPPY NEW YEAR, YA'LL! 🍾⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just a friendly new year introduction, for those of you who don't know us that well.....⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are Quarter Moon Co. – hey there 👋🏻! We create content for brands & families who share our mission of wanting to make a positive impact on the world.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Michele (center) is the one usually speaking on here. Her main focuses are brand content creation, creative direction, keeping the back end of business running like a well-oiled machine, and wrangling a sassy 7 month old 🙃⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Shannon (left) is the one usually answering your emails. Her main focuses are project management, client onboarding, brand content creation, keeping Michele from going off the deep end, and homeschooling 3 (from 4-15 years old 🤪).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Laura (right) is our family session pro! If you've had a family session with us in the past few years, there's a good chance you've had the pleasure of working with her! Laura is also the queen of the kitties, and mama to a fiery 5 year old girl! 🐈⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On this page, we exclusively share our brand/lifestyle content.

Never fear, we'll put together something new with all of our awesome QM fams soon, it's on our 2021 to-do list 😉 In the mean time, be sure to join our Quarter Moon Mamas facebook group to stay in the loop!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anyway, we are so glad you're here, and we can't wait to spend another year on this adventure with you!
