I like that you can see her expression in her reflection. She must have been chilly due to the rain because she would NOT stop asking to take a shower. I said, "no" and she kept asking every 20 seconds. So finally I started one for her and she took a hot shower--by herself--for 15 minutes. Some fights just aren't worth it. ;)

Alisha said...

Oh my word that is too cute. What a little lady she is :) Next she will be asking for a hot bubble bath...

She is BEAUTIFUL!

Oh yes, re your tweet: so glad I am not alone in that department. We finally had to get a plastic cover for our DVD player thanks to Jake stuffing our entire DVD collection inside our BRAND NEW DVD player - he jammed it so badly that Brandon and his Dad had to take the entire thing apart. It has never run right since. :(

What did we do for entertainment before our kids??

Thanks, Jenni and Melissa. It's an interesting picture. In black and white it's actually a little scary looking.

Amy, yes, kiddos can be so, so distructive. Lovely, but distructive FOR SURE.

I am doing a reshoot for the website, and I'm kicking around wardrobe ideas. Any body have a chilren's retailer or photographer site that they find inspiring or really well done and care to share the link? I'm having designer's block, I guess... :)

Jessica-
I have been a huge fan for FOREVER of your adorable items and blog! As a fellow etsian I wanted to let you know that I just wrote a post about two popular bloggers who's father is battling cancer and I was wondering if you would be interested in writing a short post about it as well...they need all the well wishes they can get! You can get more information on my blog here:

That picture makes my heart melt!

If you could get your hands on a crewcuts catalog {Jcrew's children's line} -their style was adorable. The website doesn't have the same shots.

Not sure if that's the look you are going for though...

Hi Jessica, The picture is almost fantastical. It's like Mia has a twin from another reality!

Hrm, childrens clothier - I'm a little obsessed with Deux Par Deux and Janie & Jack.

Stacy (aka Lexiesmum) said...

What a lovely picture! Jessica, your children are just beautiful!

My bestfriend is a professional photographer, and does amazing work! Check her out www.melissakoehlerblog.com. I'm hoping to get a pair of your shoes for our upcoming family session with her :)

Oh, and CONGRATS on all the new business changes. You are so deserving of all the praise and open doors that have come your way.

Best Wishes,
Stacy

I just love this pic! Rainy days can be so rewarding when your stuck inside and have no choice but to do things that you've been holding off on ;) I LOVE rainy days!

Hana said...

What a cute photo! It's been a rainy day here as well. Playdate inside today.

Quickly wanted to tell you that my second favorite (second only to YOU) children's clothes maker--is Belle Heir and they actually have a very well organized website...in my opinion really user friendly. Now, I do realize that their style is extremely stripped down and minimal. But, I also know that you employ quite a bit of minimalism in your lovely designs to give patterns balance, etc....so, you MAY find a bit of inspiration there. If nothing else, this is THE place to buy baby clothes to go with your Mia Joie shoes (other than from MJ herself, of course).

I'm so sorry that it's taken me so long to write back to you Jess--just know that I got your convo response and it was wonderful and gracious of you--and as you can imagine, I have strong opinions but I'll write more, privately, soon!

Hope you guys enjoy the Belle Heir site! JUST breathtaking that they make clothes like this for little people. :) (much like the reaction most people have to MJ shoes)

Love and Blessings Ladies!!

OK, I just adore all pictures of your kids! This is absolutely one of my faves.

I have a few options for you to check out for photo ideas: www.justkidsphotography.com and www.otisandjames.com both have some really modern and fresh ideas! I was actually studying them to get my own ideas as well:)

As for clothes...I still adore gap and childrens place for easy access and quick shopping. But I have found the most adorable dresses at www.teacollection.com and dimplesanddandelions.com

My new "hope" is that I can eventually get some Chloe items for my girls upcoming photo shoots. if you go to shopstyle.com, search chloe, and then click on the kids section...Oh the love I feel when I get here:)

Hope you find exactly what you are looking for!!

Tory said...

Cute, cute--everyone--so darling!!!!!! Love you guys!

Jessica Haley said...

Thanks so much to everyone for all your links. It was really interesting to go to different site and see their photostyling and marketing. {Jenni, loved the "trash the dress" pics on the site you suggested.} I looked at all of them and they were all interesting and helpful in different ways. Like, Tory, your bell heir site was very literal in its vintage styling but I loved their layout and have it book marked for that reason. I loved that french site, too, and the Chloe items... thanks for your tips!
