YOYA'S 20 Questions: Jaimie Baird

YOYA'S 20 Questions: Jaimie Baird

Every mom holds her own magic - that arsenal of must have products and best kept secrets which allow her to get through the day and on occasion make motherhood look like a breeze. Each week, we'll use YOYA's 20 Questions to unlock the vault and provide a sneak peek into the essentials of our favorite moms.

This week, the spotlight's on Jaimie Baird. Jaimie is a mother and photographer living in Tribeca with her family. She and her husband Chip have three kiddos... their son, Loch and two girls, Blake and Olive. Her freelance career has allowed her to wear many hats and try new things. Last year, she co-authored a book called Yoga Bodies and is now dipping her toes into interior design. Enjoy learning more about Jaimie below!
