Hi all! I’m Taryn and I’m the official shutterbug (i.e. photographer) for the group. I love capturing the special moments babywearing provides…whether it be a stolen kiss from mama or a sleepy little one snuggled down into a carrier for a nap.
I first learned of babywearing when my son was born prematurely in 2011. I knew it was so important to hold him close and provide him with the security and warmth of being next to me. My first carrier was a Gypsymama Bali Stretch which I fell head over heels in love with. I soon moved on to woven wraps and never looked back! Since then, my love of babywearing has grown…as has my family. My daughter was born on January 28, 2014 and I’ve really enjoyed having a new wrappee (since toddler snuggles can be few and far between around here!). I am a wrapper at heart, but definitely see the benefits of a good SSC for wrangling a resistant child.
I moved here from Michigan where I was a member of the Ann Arbor, Genesee County, and Detroit groups. I was so glad to find such a wonderful and inviting group in Austin! I treasure the friends I have met through the group and look forward to meeting even more as time goes on.
