finds of the fabulous kind

I love getting the opportunity to shoot all of these fabulous clothing lines. Especially because I don’t know how to even thread a sewing machine. It is one talent I would love to achieve someday. Check out:


SO Cute! Your daughters are awesome! Mine hates getting her pictures taken. Where did you get the blue and brown flower backdrop

 ( Mar 29th, 2011 6:29 pm)
Joy Stallard 

I love Olivia in the long skirt and Mia with the birds nest. To die for precious. The pinwheels and Mia’s hat are adorable! So whimsical and fun!

 ( Feb 4th, 2011 7:47 pm)

I think all your pictures are just to die for!!! Where do you get all the paper medallions in the background? I want some for my daughter bedroom!

 ( Jan 31st, 2011 11:02 pm)
Monica Martin 

if only my kids would model so nicely for me… !

 ( Jan 30th, 2011 7:19 am)

Thanks everyone! Yes Stephanie, I should know how to sew:) Someday I will learn. Jessica- I got that crown at dear lizzy’s in Highland.

 ( Jan 29th, 2011 4:21 am)
Stephanie Baxter 

okay. The clothes are super cute. . . but those models are just over the top. Your girls are just too, too cute. And. . .I just have to add that I am shocked at your revelation that you don’t even know how to thread a sewing machine.;)

 ( Jan 27th, 2011 11:33 pm)

Your pictures are AMAZING…Everything you do is something better and better…I love the pictures of your girls…Where is the Birthday crown from…Georgoeus….!!

I would love for someone to start a line of creative and adorable boy clothes! If that combination even exists for boys. Haha. I love all of these cute girl clothes :)

 ( Jan 26th, 2011 6:08 am)

The back drops look so good! Love the one on the stick, so great.
What an adorable clothing line. My little Alliya needs one of everything.

FABULOUS photos, Katie! These are really great and very fun shots. You and your girls did a great job showcasing my pieces. You all are making it look so easy to be fabulous! Thanks again. xxx

I just recently started following your blog!! I love these, I loved Christmas, I love them all!! Very inspiring.

 ( Jan 25th, 2011 7:43 pm)

I LOVE the long tiered-ruffle skirt. Adorable! Great photos too (of course). :)

 ( Jan 25th, 2011 6:58 pm)

Beautiful as always! If you don’t mind me asking, where do you find your gorgeous backgrounds??

 ( Jan 25th, 2011 6:22 pm)

Gorgeous photos. I absolutely cannot show my daughter anymore the photos in your blog, as at the age of five she always goes: “I love that, look at that hairband, mummy I need that dress etc.” Not to mention that accoring to her she definitely needs a doll house like in your xmas photos. Your photos are too “yummy”! I love those clothes too.

Kate! LOVE your blog. How did you make the paper flowers on your backdrop(what kind of paper?) I want to make some for my daughters birthday party. They are so cute!

 ( Jan 15th, 2011 6:35 am)

wow this are too cute! Love the suitcases. I have to say I love your work! I visit at your blog all the time. I wish one day I can attend to one of your workshop. Have to work hard this year to make enough money of workshop. Can I ask where do you get those backdrop? Are they just regular material?

 ( Jan 11th, 2011 9:03 pm)

I would love to know where you get your material. I love these as well as a blue flowered one that I’ve seen you use. Great work!

persnickety christmas

Here are a few more Christmas outfits from persnickety. I seriously LOVE their clothes! Aren’t those striped pants that Mya has on, the cutest things EVER!? And those jackets are so freaking cute too!
Were almost caught up with editing. Only about 13 people left to edit. Thanks to brooke!

Brittany Stover 

I’m an idiot, so sorry I didn’t read down far enough. What about your fabulous backgrounds. I recognize most of them as just fabrics, but do you have another fabric source you use?

 ( Jan 7th, 2011 1:12 am)

I might be doing a workshop in February still working on the details. So email me if your interested.

 ( Dec 17th, 2010 5:09 am)
Amy Smith 

Agree with Charity :) Hope you do a video on what a “typical” indoor session consists of. YOU ARE AMAZING!

 ( Dec 15th, 2010 3:07 pm)

I have an idea for a new addition to your TIPS category…would love to see how you interchange all the backdrops and what your studio looks like. It seems like you do a lot of work changing them out and that you have a huge space!! LOVE your work!

Gosh… what little girl wouldn’t love to get to dress up all the time in such gorgeous clothing! I am wishing my parents would have been photographers!!

Beautiful pictures! Can I ask where the silver dress is from that your older daughter has on? It’s just gorgeous

ps is that photo of Mya in the red dress at Sundance? I so miss going to the Sundance film festivals!

 ( Dec 13th, 2010 7:04 am)
Joy Stallard 

I have been meaning to leave you a comment all day since I saw this this morning. You truly did a fabulous job at marketing her clothing and the product photography. I think everything is displayed so well. That has to be so hard to get great photos of the clothing and items and the kids too. What a challenge! I adore the photo of gorgeous Olivia leaning on the wall. She is looking so grown up though! You are right about Mya’s pants. They are the cutest ever!

 ( Dec 13th, 2010 7:02 am)

so cute! and I looove you ornaments hanging!

 ( Dec 13th, 2010 5:42 am)
Heather Farnsworth 

you always come up with the best backdrops. Like the ornaments. Amazing. I have always been a huge fan.
Happy Birthday Mya! She is beautiful! And 4! You were pregnant with her when I hired you guys to do my wedding.

 ( Dec 13th, 2010 3:50 am)

I love your hanging ornaments so cute. And the clothes are adorable.

Mya Jane is 4!

We had a fabulous day at Kangaroo zoo for Mya’s 4th birthday party. A lot of laughing and crying at that 4 year old age.
Had to post just a quick picture of her cake from Marcee from Dipidee. She is seriously AMAZING! I just told her we were having a Tangled birthday party and this is what she came up with. Mya was in heaven!
And this fabulous dress is from chicoco I will be posting more of her fabulous outfits soon!

Her birthday invites! I designed it but had pro-digital print them with their new die cut.

And last but not least. Just shot this gorgeous dress for Dollcake!

Wow! That is a beautiful cake? And I love your daughter’s dree too! Do you mind sharing where it’s from and who designed the cake?

 ( Dec 10th, 2010 10:16 pm)

Angela, do you ever look at your histograms when your shooting? That always helps me.

 ( Dec 10th, 2010 6:03 am)

Hey Klam- I designed them and pro-digital printed them.

 ( Dec 10th, 2010 6:00 am)

She is so darling! She reminds me so much of my almost four year old! Thanks for the tip on where to get a great cake!

 ( Dec 10th, 2010 1:26 am)

I would love to know who designed the invitations. thanks!

 ( Dec 8th, 2010 3:47 pm)
Kristen Kellems 

She’s so cute. I heard that Kangaroo Zoo was really fun. Can’t wait to see you and the kids!

 ( Dec 7th, 2010 10:43 pm)

In your dollcake picture, how do you get such good lighting in the face area? I always get over exposed or too dark when im shooting with my softboxes. :) thanks

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!
