Props, Pigtails, and Pics

I didn't have a lot of time to do a long photoshoot with Miss Avery today, so I just grabbed a couple props that I hoped would hold her interest for a few minutes, and drug it all out into the backyard.

The props did the trick for a few minutes, and then she got distracted and headed back inside...

 But I did get enough shots to show off her cute vintage ensemble.  The dress is one from a thrift shop, and I added the colorful leggings so that the pale yellow wasn't quite so baby-ish.  After all, she's almost two now!

Dress: vintage    Leggings: Circo from Target (thrifted)     Shoes: Angel brand (from Ebay)

See the other cute kids here and here!



And on a different note, here's a little artwork.   I haven't had much time to be creative lately, but here's a spread from Avery's journal.  I just love her little pigtails, and doing a silhouette of them was the perfect way to showcase them!!




And, finally, just for fun, here are a couple of "Then & Now" photos. Last July, I took the first photo of the kids at my mother's house. So this year, I made a point to take a similar shot. If I can remember, I'll try to take the same shot every time we visit (usually once a year). It will be fun to see how they change!

Avery looks beautiful as always. Love the pigtails silhouette. And, the 2 before and now pictures, it looks like Avery is the only one who grew. Amazing!

Long photo shoot or not, I love the first couple of shots. The globe in the woods and vintage baby dress is such a fun idea. Adorable!

I'm not a big fan of silhouettes, but being a big fan of Avery's, I love the silhouette...
