Born to create

Chin-Lu of Chinnylulu Designs is.... a happy wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, an auntie, a friend.
She is a truth seeker and a deep thinker.
She is a graduate student.
She is a country girl with southern hospitality at heart.
She is interested in people and their lives.
Chin-Lu loves to laugh and smile all the time.
She is full of passion for life.
Sunday is her favorite day of the week.
She is indefinitely a free bird: She loves to dream big, create, and inspire.
Most importantly, she is a creation of the original creator...her reflection is found in Him. She was born to create.
Ever since she was six, she has loved to express herself creatively--classical violin, piano, art, dance, singing, acting--basically any right-brained activity she could get her hands on made her the happiest. In college, Chin-Lu's major was theater and OFCOURSE her favorite class was costume design!!! She learned how to sew and make clothing in this class.
Chin-Lu was looking for the perfect hair accessory to go with her maid of honor dress for her best friend's wedding and couldn't find what she was looking for, so she was inspired to make her vision come to life. That marked the beginning of Chinnylulu Designs. Started off designing wedding hair fascinators and veils for brides and have now expanded into newborn photography world with my husband. We have now combined our baby store {chinnylulu4babies} with this one. For more 5 star reviews, please see:
There is a limited wedding collection for brides as our focus is now on baby hair accessories. Most items are one of a kind (OOAK) and have already been pre made . If you love it, snatch it before someone else does! :) I love being able to design and create elaborate sets for our newborns that we photograph. It's my jam! Most items you see in our photos are made by myself or my mother-in-law such as hair accessories, bunting flags or knitted items. We are a close-knit family owned business. If you are bold and love to make a fashion statement, you will adore Chinnylulu Designs. Hope you love and enjoy the handmade goods and photo props as much as we love taking the time to create them for you.

  • Chin-Lu Hoffmann

    Owner, Creator, Designer

    God has given me a talent for creating, styling, and designing. When I come up with an idea, I then have a vision in my head and I start creating. Our products range from all things baby to room decor to photo props for newborn photographers.

  • Steve Hoffmann


    Steve, my husband has been a professional photographer for the last 13 years. All the photos you see are done by him unless otherwise noted.

  • Helga Hoffmann


    My mother-in-law has been sewing since she was in 5th grade - so that makes her officially sewing for 60 years!!!!!! She's utterly amazing and helps my visions come to life.
