New Fall and Winter Designs

This past week I launched my new Fall/ Winter line at my Etsy store.  The fabrics are all so fun and most of them have hair accessories too!

Miriam was a great little model for the skirts and Abigail's doll, Kaylie, did her part as well.  Turquoise with button trees and Buttons and Flowers are both made with corduroy prints.  They are both very fun and bright.

Turquoise and Button Trees

Buttons and Flowers

Vintage Peppermints
I love these muted colors and the old fashioned design.  It's actually quite elegant.

Falling Leaves

This set is so rich with browns, oranges and yellows.  Watching the leaves turn color is one of the best things about living up here, so I really like this one.  Miriam liked this one the best and we had a little trouble getting her to take it off.

The rest are made from snuggly flannel.  Some are very Christmas-y, but others are just cute and good for any time.  Adding a sweater and tights makes these perfect for cooler weather.  That's a good thing around here because Miriam always wants to be "beautiful" in skirts and dresses. When I pull out jeans she says,"but those just aren't cute enough mom".  I blame it on those Fancy Nancy books.

Red Buttons

Winter Pinguins

Candy Cane

Pink 'n' Polka Dot

Glitter Butterflies

Abigail's Back-to-School Pictures

Note: Photography related posts are now found at the Adriel Henderson Photography blog.

My Abigail is quite a fireball, nearly always having the wiggles, and it is quite difficult for her to sit still long enough for a picture. So it was quite exciting yesterday when we were able to come home from the park with some great portraits! She is growing into quite a beautiful young woman. Here are some of my favorites...

And this one is so Abby...

Our good friends came up our way this weekend for a family portrait photo shoot. Not only did we come up with some great pictures, we also had a great time in the process. Below are some of my favorites from our session. (Click each photo for a larger view)

The full gallery can be viewed on the Adriel Henderson Photography website.

If you know of anyone looking for a professional family portait, let them know that if they book by the end of September I'll take $50 off a portrait package price ($25 off the Mini-Shoot package).

Photo shoot with Sophia

I enjoyed a fabulous portrait shoot with Sophia this weekend, at some beautiful locations around Keizer and Salem. It is a great time of the year to shoot in Oregon, with so many variety of backdrops to choose from.

I do have openings for family portraits and school photos over the coming weekends, so please give me a call if you are interested in scheduling a portrait shoot.

First day of Kindergarten

Today was Miriam's first day of Kindergarten. She has been waiting for so long. First David started school last Monday. Then Tuesday for Abigail, and Miriam had to wait a whole week for today! She was hopping excited for her first day. Mom took her to school, and Mim came back home on her first bus ride. What a big kid!

... and from there it was a hop and a skip all the way back home...
