Jenni’s photos are from our first book—The Glow, An Inspiring Guide to Stylish Motherhood! Here’s an exclusive sneak peek at some of our favorite outtakes from New York, Los Angeles, Nashville, London, and Paris.

Fashion designer by day, Martha Stewart-in-the-making by night, Jenni Kayne has the kind of honed design eye usually reserved for seasoned interior designers (case in point, her swoon-worthy and highly-addictive blog). Not only did she design every inch of her kids’ whimsical bedrooms and playroom herself, she also manages to throw a mean birthday party that adults enjoy just as much as the kids. While the California native makes it all look completely effortless (think perfectly tousled beach waves and bare feet), the young mom admits that the challenges of being a working mother are very real. “Finding balance is always a struggle for me,” she admits. What gets her through? “Dinners with my girlfriends, weekends with my husband, support from my sister and parents, and a glass of wine.”
