 Do you ever see professional photo’s of people’s children and just fall in love with the hats and accessories that the photographer has used? Ever wonder where they find them? Ever wonder how you can get your hands on them? Well, Mama’s, I can hook you up.

Lesley Bender-Fair Designs is the brainchild of three working mom’s who found they had a love of creating beautiful things. They started with newborn knit creations and have expanded from there to include products for all ages and sizes. Originally marketing photographers, they now offer their custom creations locally! Every item is hand created just for you by Lesley, Sue and Aimee. Hats, photoprops, diaper covers – they make them beautiful!

The hat I received from Lesley Bender-Fair Designs is beautiful! It’s hard to find really cute, but boy-ish hats and they nailed it: a newsboy cap in the exact blue of his eyes. The hat fit perfectly, as if they had measured his head before making it. The design and detail are impeccable. I love how thick and warm it is; covering his ears, it makes the perfect winter hat for my trendy little man. He’s been wearing it since the weather turned colder and he gets compliments on it every single time we are out. A gorgeous hat for a gorgeous baby!

Want a newsboy cap for yourself? A cool toque with ear flaps? One of those cool, floppy beret’s that everyone is wearing? Whether it’s for yourself, your teen, your child or your itty bitty newborn, Lesley has got it for you. Lesley designs her hats and creations herself – no patterns here! So, if you have an idea of what you would like, send her an email at Not that creative?
