Behind The Scenes

I wanted to share a few behind the scenes pictures from our look book shoot. I can’t wait to debut the beautiful photos taken by Sonya Shermer. I was really nervous about shooting with so many toddlers but it actually worked out just fine. We did two looks for each kids and the first went swimmingly. The second was okay, we provided lots of toys and did our best to wrangle them. By the end all the kids were starting to get antsy so the timing was perfect. We had to do a few last minute outfit changes since some were a bit more opinionated about their ensembles then others. But all in al it was a great day and I am so happy with the results! A big thanks to everyone involved! I couldn’t have done it without you!

I wanted to show off my shop a bit. I love the feel of the kid’s section. It’s very eclectic and I tried to make it a good mix of antiques and more modern furniture.  Displayed I have lots of pretty pillows, dress up clothing, and Confetti System pinatas. Keep in mind these picks are a few weeks old.  A lot of the product you see is long gone and we are currently restocking with all our Fall goodies!
