I’m sorry, I made it years ago, not sure the exact colors I used. Just 2-3 shades of brown and some gold and bronze paint from Joannes.
I did texture it first.

Our shoot didn’t show up tonight, so we decided to take some pictures of the girls in their new dollcake clothes, I wanted to wait until spring, but who knows how Lyla will be when she’s mobile. She is already pretty crazy.
Lylas cute headbands are from Joy’s new patterns.


Love the buggy! I have a white wicker one that is similar I just need the umbrella for it because it was missing:( what orchards do you recommend shooting at! I would love to do my daughters birthday pics there this year but, I really do not know of any in Salt Lake

persnickety clothing

We got the opportunity to shoot for this fabulous clothing company called Persnickety clothing.
We did this first shot in the summer for their spring line. I can’t wait to post the rest of the pictures.

And these next shots are their new Christmas line. Cutest clothes EVER! I love the headbands too. I wonder if Mya will ever get sick of us using her for all of our photo shoots!

Ashley DeLo 

Thank you so much Katie! I appreciate it! I am going to look now. I got my floor ordered, now I just need the red. I love the texture!! Great photos as always :)

 ( Nov 6th, 2010 7:28 pm)

hey ashley, I got the background from it is just a wallpaper you can paint on. And I just painted it red:) Not the best paint job.

 ( Oct 29th, 2010 6:23 am)
Ashley DeLo 

Hi Katie, I always LOVE reading your blog. I have a little girl and have found the neatest clothes for her from all of your photos. They are just all so beautiful. Your girls and your photos are absolutely gorgeous! I was wondering if you could pretty please share where you got the red background from?? It is just beautiful and I have been looking everywhere for something like that.

 ( Oct 29th, 2010 6:10 am)

oh my I love your work! The clothes are to die for and so are your sets and locations. Just gorgeous!!
Can I ask where the red backdrop is from in these? You can email me if you want. I love love love it! I need a textured red background! :) thank you!

 ( Oct 27th, 2010 3:30 am)

I didn’t see these adorable outfits on the website…Where can we order this cute line?

 ( Oct 26th, 2010 1:08 am)

I got it at an antique store.

 ( Oct 23rd, 2010 4:57 am)

I love these clothes! So Cute!!
Where did you get that tile looking backdrop? I love it!

 ( Oct 22nd, 2010 7:14 pm)

Ok rarely do I love clothes so much that I want to buy more than one piece within a line but I absolutely positively LOVE this entire line! There are so many things I have to buy for my girls. I can’t wait to see a closeup of Olivia’s dress. That is to die for and the little girl’s dress sitting on the bus is the cutest ever! Oh and I have to have so many of the items in the christmas collection. This designer is over the top talented and your photos were sooooooooo perfect! I know I am going on and on but my favorite shoot of the year! These are all just incredible! Mya is a natural!

Amazing photos!

 ( Oct 15th, 2010 6:07 pm)

I am lucky to have these three amazing guys in my life! I love every single photo! The only negative to your work is finding a spot for each one in my house…I’m working on it though! Katie, anytime you want to trade kids for a day…we can…I would love to do girly things for a day!
