Welcome! I’m Shelby and the creator behind PITP, a lifestyle blog based in NYC that once started in “the pines” of North Carolina in 2014. This space has evolved since then and these days you’ll find me adding charm to our city apartment and sharing everyday life as a new mom living in New York with my husband, TJ, and our babies (one tiny human and one XL dog). I hope you’ll find inspiration and comfort as you browse Pretty in the Pines!

Let’s Work Together

As a creative soul, I love finding ways to share quality products through video and photography on social media. If you’re a brand looking for content creation services, please reach out to hello@prettyinthepines.com for more details.
