Behind the scenes of Little Mae


What do people say about your dreams when you share them?

I was once told “ Never give up on your dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway”

That inspiring quote is what really got me started. It was just a few months after having my daughter Salomé when I realized I needed my own creative outlet. Being a mom is so special but aside from raising my little one, I wanted to do something more with my spare time. Little did I know how busy I could truly become in such a short period of time!

I start my day with a coffee and it normally looks like this...

Then I write out my to do list — I can’t work without one. Haha.


I absolutely love receiving emails and messages on our social media platforms from moms & business owners just like you! The small business community on Instagram in particular is so refreshing to be apart of. Each month we plan a Small Business Follow Loop to connect & meet new shops. If you are interested, send us a message and we will add you right in!


Being a stay at home mom + business owner are two things I’ve always wanted. I am so grateful to be with my little Mae on a daily basis and also accomplish my dream job at the same time. I try to do most of my work while she naps, but our schedule doesn’t always go as planned. There are many days where Mae sits on my lap as I edit photos, post a new product or contact fabric manufacturers — that is reality my friends!

She is the inspiration behind our business and as she grows, so does our little shop. Each day is a new opportunity for the both of us to learn and embrace what we have together. It is no doubt that some days are overwhelming and difficult but regardless of it all, I wouldn’t want it any other way!

I am so grateful my mom and I joined together to establish Little Mae. When we first started, I knew almost little to nothing about sewing! It has been the biggest learning curve for me but with 40+ years of sewing experience, my mom has taught me all her techniques and skills everyday as we sew and learn together. This is where three generations come together to create modern essentials for your little one(s).

My canon camera is my best friend when it comes to creating content for Little Mae — even the content for this blog!

I have a passion for photography and it brings me so much joy that I can still pursue it on a regular basis. When I photograph the products we make, I truly feel what I photograph. This is where my creativity unfolds and I begin to capture what you see from the outside.


Welcome to our home studio - this is where the magic happens!

We love putting together sweet stacks & flat lays of our products to create images that truly represent who we are. Our brand is a collection of minimalistic + beautiful baby everyday essentials in solid colors & subtle prints!



Packaging & shipping is the final step before your order arrives at your doorstep. We package each order with close attention to detail and care knowing that you will be receiving it!

Our turnaround time once your order is placed is 1-5 business days meaning we make frequent stops to the post office during the week. I am so blessed to have my husband who drops them off each morning and always picks up a coffee when I don’t have the chance to make one!


Thank you for being apart of our growing business & for taking the time to read our behind the scenes blog. We hope you enjoyed learning more about us & what we do here at Little Mae & Co!

Much love,

Ruth Stirb
