Okay, you MUST click on this link here. Priscilla Baierlein put together a slideshow of the photo shoot set to music. True love.
So, a big part of going pro with this clothing line has been to learn to do things I know nothing about. Exhibit A: orchestrating a photo shoot that consists of about 9 toddlers. The closest thing I've ever come to a photo shoot was when I was about eight years old, and my parents sent me to modeling school. It didn't pan out.
So what does one have to do to pull off a photo shoot? Well, lucky for me, either all the girls' moms were equally unschooled as I, or possessed so much grace that I couldn't tell the difference. First, all the little gals had an appointment time ranging from 9:00 AM to noon on a Saturday last month. They were all perfectly punctual, arriving precisely every 30 minutes. They tried on some pretty things without too much cajoling. It was not by accident that I had poufy, frilly gift bags placed right at their eye levels--their dangling carrots.
They then gathered on the evening of the shoot at my if-we-get-rained-out backup plan: Talon Winery. I couldn't have asked for it to go any better. There were NO tears, NO rain, and NO sugar.....ha, ha. That was a little joke for all those involved :)
Today's happiness: Sure, the clothes are pretty. Designing them really does give me a charge. But there's nothing like seeing pretty clothes become more than beautiful because of the vibrant little lives wearing them.
