This is little Micah. Isn't he a doll? A friend told me he looks like a mini Heath Ledger. I needed a boy model... I suppose I could have used Aidan, but I think it would be confusing, since I really make shoes for around 2 years and under. (Actually, I have been making boots quite a bit larger as of late--but that's fodder for another post.)
So, I set up a photo shoot with Ally (Micah's mom), so I could get some pictures of some new boy designs I was working on. He was a charmer for the camera, as you can see. The biggest reason I wanted to schedule the shoot was for some fun BOY rainboots, but (you know me) I only got one boot made. Ally, if you'll spare him again, that might be for photo shoot number two. I also wanted to get pictures of the new vest I designed, since it really needs to be pictured on a model.
So, here's little Micah, looking all snazzy in the Ryland Vest.
This a closer view of Micah wearing the vest, Oxford blue tie (coming soon), and Peyton shoes in Oxford Blue.
See how happy he is! This was the earlier part of the photo session.
This one *lol* was near the end. He was a trooper/ Here he is reaching for mom. I have one of these little striped aqua ties in stock. The ties are a fixed knot with a bit of elastic to go around the neck. They would really only look appropriate with a shirt with a colar.
Blue dots tie with vest and boots. This is available in a set.
Mia was fascinated with Micah. Almost caught a smooch....
This one is my Miakins... with her then clean little fuzzy vest from Uncle Ryan and Aunt Sunny. Alas, I think someone might have had a chocolate mint and spit it out after dinner (we were shooting right outside a restaurant on the water.) Anyway, Mia found it while I was snapping away... I turned around and her little hoodie, face, and hands were covered in brown mystery goo. Oh, my little kiddos and their knack for trouble!
Thanks so much, Ally, for letting me steal Micah away for a little while. He is such a handsome little man!! I think the pictures turned out great, and I hope you enjoy them, too. I have them all burned to a CD, whenever you are ready for them.
Also, I am selling the little blue Peyton shoes worn in the shoot, size 3.5, for only $5. (First come, first serve :) They have some minor imperfections, but they are still cute! Let me know if the Paypal button is acting weird again....
Finally, I want to send out a personal thank you to my blog readers. Many of you have sent me notes regarding my post about Aidan. I just wanted to tell you how very much I appreciate them. Even though we've been here in Houston for several years now, I really don't have many truly close friends. That is, I have lots of people I could call for lunch or a play date, but no one *nearby* I can share all my thoughts--good, bad, and ugly--with. So, thank you, so very much for your kind emails--I treasure every one.
