Our Story

Welcome to Fresh Squeezed! I’m Jennifer…and it’s great to meet you here.

I’m a wife to a wonderful hubby* (I know, everyone says that…but it’s true! See Exhibit A below.), a mom to five (three grown boys & twin girls who are growing up too fast), a small business owner, a creative genius (LOL!!…just kidding!) and one who finds great challenge in being able to do anything and everything. I’m hooked on iced-tea, love power tools and like my music loud when I’m working.  I have hundreds of bolts of fabric lining my workroom walls, fabric scraps overflowing (methodically sorted by color), and am covered in thread most of the time. On a rare break from the Fresh Squeezed studio, you'll find me in the garage covered in saw dust and stain/paint.

*Since marrying my wonderful hubby, he’s encouraged, motivated and partnered with me in careers in beach photography and destination weddings, graphic design, retail fabric sales and this thriving online boutique. He’s been patient through every wonderfully wacky idea I’ve had and won’t let me give up on anything. He’s my biggest fan and supporter …. and I couldn’t/wouldn’t be where I am without him.

We’ve been blessed with three handsome boys and two adorable littles. Our oldest son is a police officer and in grad school majoring in Criminal Justice, our middle son is a U.S. Navy Hospital Corpsman in Bethesda, Maryland, and our youngest son is "working on the railroad" (now that song will be stuck in your head all day) and studying bartending in the hopes of one day owning his own pub.

Our littles are in Fifth Grade and preparing for Ivy League.  Both inherited creativity from me.  Little #1 inherited her father’s curls and giggles, while Little #2 inherited his organization and attention to detail.

Together, we are Fresh Squeezed! We've been doing what we love and loving what we do for eleven plus years. 

What began as a hobby, exploded into a lifestyle. After the birth of our twins, my mom showed up on my doorstep with a sewing machine.  I had never sewn a thing in my life (except that horrific cupcake pillow in high school Home Ec, which we won't talk about further).  I asked her what in the world I was going to do with a sewing machine, and she told me that I now had two little girls for whom to sew and she knew that I would accept the challenge ... and not give up until I mastered it.  She knows me too well.  I pulled the thing out of the box at naptime, looked it over, decided to become friends with it.  The rest is Fresh Squeezed history.  I began meeting my new friend during morning and afternoon nap times.  Within a matter of weeks, the closet was filling with frilly little girl outfits in pink and purple, blankets, bibs, etc.  Within a couple of months, I had more creations than I could possibly ever put to use.  It was time to do something about these stacks and stacks of baby things.  I opened an Etsy shop on a whim.  My first sale happened the very first night. The second sale came the next day.  It was official... I was in business!  I began receiving and filling custom requests by the dozens and loving this new hobby as a way to decompress during naptime.  It wasn't long before the orders were too great to manage only at naptime and Fresh Squeezed became the largest seller of first birthday cake smash outfits on Etsy.  What a great honor it has been to participate in so many wonderful first birthday events!  Hubby retired from teaching in 2013 to become a full-time "Freshie".  We hired a part-time seasonal staff and put our Big Freshies to work part time (knowing that school was their first and most important job) and let our Little Freshies handle inventory (mostly sorting supplies...which they LOVE to do).

In the summer of 2014, we outgrew our Etsy shop, with more thanks than we can express to our 20,000+ customers here in the US and abroad, and decided it was time to build newer, bigger and better here.  Our boutique has attracted customers from across the globe, reaching all 50 states and 27 countries. 

Welcome to freshsqueezedbaby.com! We consider it a great honor to build relationships with our customers and look forward to creating some juicy goodness for YOUR little squirt.
