And the winner is……….. #9 Tamsen!  Send an email through the website and she will send it over:)

Don’t worry I will have another one in the next couple days!

All you have to do is leave a comment and you could win this fabulous headband.  Also if you go to Ky-and-Taya-Accessories and like them you can leave another comment and have another chance of winning.

If you want to place an order you can get %10 off my using code: PEEKABOO10. We will choose the winner on Thursday night.  Good luck!


I have a question. Do you collect all the dresses and headbands etc. and dress your clients or do they mostly come in their own clothes? I have just started my business and I have just been collecting things like pettie rompers and tutus. I have a little girl so she can wear them but I am also hoping to use them for my photos of other kids.

Liv Sophia

I  always feel so humbled when people fly in from out of state to get their kids pictures taken.  Cute Anna flew in from Florida to get Liv’s one year pictures taken.   She brought the cutest outfits  and seriously had all the backgrounds and floors picked out for each outfit, so it went super fast.  Good thing Liv was so smily and lasted through 5 outfit changes!

Liv’s nick name is “peaches”
