The face behind Mommy's Little Sunshine

Monday, October 1, 2012

 Hello everyone! 
Many of you know me personally or even just by way of blog. For those you who do not, this post is for you. (For those of you who do know here are our most recent family pictures.) I would like to introduce you to my family and I. I would also like to give you a little background for Mommy's Little Sunshine. 

I have always dreamed of owning a baby and children's boutique, but like many others I had no idea how to start it. I would have never imagined it starting the way it did either. I actually started a family blog, just to blog about our life. When I found out that I was pregnant with my daughter we decided to do a family photo shoot with some chalk boards introducing her arrival. Once I put them on my blog they started to go viral on Pinterest. I was actually very surprised that so many people were not only re-pinning but starting to follow my blog as well. As the fan base grew I decided to create a whole new blog dedicated to just my pregnancy. I thought for a long time about what exactly to call the blog. I then finally decided on Mommy's Little Sunshine because I knew my little one would be nothing but. 

My new blog fan base also began to grow and as it grew fate just started to fall into place. And I jumped at the opportunity to start my own online boutique and make some of my dreams come true! Well Mommy's Little Sunshine has already exceed a lot of my dreams! So I just keep setting the bar higher and am thrilled for the further of this company. I honestly couldn't have done it without all of my amazing followers, customers and fans. So a big shout out, thank you goes to each and every one of you!

So let me introduce to my family. 

My name is McKinli Hatch. I was born and raised in Ogden, Utah. I wasn't always so much into fashion and "girly" things. As a child, I absolutely loved playing sports and was even on my Junior High basketball, softball and track team. Once I started to make my way into High School I changed directions and was a cheerleader in my High School for 2 years. I also was Miss Northern Utah Teen USA which really sparked my interest into the fashion industry. I loved fashion so much that I started modeling locally and loved every second of it. About 2 years ago I really discovered my true passion for children and baby fashion. I have always said "How do you make cute clothing even cuter? Make it tiny and put it on a little one!"

This handsome guy would be the love of my life, my husband Devan. He should actually get most of the credit for Mommy's Little Sunshine because without his encouragement I could have never done it. He is always pushing me to chase my dreams and make them a reality. He is also the one standing by me even if that means to stay up all hours of the night making hair bows. Needless to say he is my rock.

These little gems are my happy!

This is my little big boy, Titan. He is 3 years old and now in pre-school! He just makes my day, everyday. His little personality is so full of spunk he is granted to make you laugh. 

This is my baby girl, Laikynn. She is just about the sweetest 6 month old baby you will ever meet. She is consistently smiling and making everyone around her smile! 

Now you know a little more about us and Mommy's Little Sunshine! I can't wait for everything that is in store with Mommy's Little Sunshine and I hope you will join us as the company exceeds my biggest expectations!

  1. I, as have many others, found your blog through Pinterest!
    So glad you wrote this post about your family!
    These photos are absolutely gorgeous. The color palette is you do not see too often (which makes it that much better).
    I'm looking forward to following your posts and checking out your shop!

  2. My mother-in-law ordered an outfit several weeks ago through Pay Pal. You have taken the money, however, she has yet to receive the order. That said, she has also emailed you via Facebook and your site several times with no response. Can you please assist?

    1. You think this woman knows anything about business? She probably has a Fisher Price cash register and still plays with an Easy Bake Oven.

  3. Everyone is matching!! That is so adorable :) I love the photos!! Such a happy & beautiful family!!

  4. how cute are you and your family. I am a DIY mommy and my husband has been urging me to sell my items and forget about heading back to work as a nurse. So you are a true inspiration to me!
