Pearson and Phoebe have both gone to Miss Dee's Montessori School (located in West Monroe, LA) since they were 18 months old. They have truly met and made some wonderful friendships at that little school. P is always coming home and telling me who his "girlfriends" are.."Breelyn, Scarlet, Isabella, Elly, Presley, Aubrey...." Im always asking him "P- which one is your FAVORITE??? " and he always looks at me like "Mom, why do I have to have a favorite??!?" His answer
is always "All of them!!"
Smart Boy-did you learn that from your Daddy?
We were able to book Donielle Barnes to come take the photos. She had already planned to come into town for the Labor Day Weekend, so the timing was perfect. Love her work-esp of the kiddos. I enjoy trying out new spots for photo shoots and I also think it is important to support other local businesses. So, I called Landry Vineyards (www.landryvineyards.com) to see if we had permission to take photos there. Here is a view of part of their vineyard from New Natchitoches Road. This was literally taken with my phone looking out my car window.
Pearson was pretty pumped about the shoot. He had me make homemade chocolate chip cookies (like in the KitchenAid ya'll-not slice and bake) and brownies for his girls who were coming~ Isabella, Elly, Presley and Aubrey. We also decided we would let Phoebe come too and jump in a few pics.
Clothes were delivered beforehand and the feeling we hoped to get for the shoot was "Fall Fun", although, let me tell ya, there was nothing Fall in the air. IT was hot as balls out there.....Pearson was so excited and kept running up and down that big hill. Sweat was every where. His auburn-y colored hair was ringing wet... HAHHAHA.
The gang did great!! They all looked precious with their own little styles.
First up was some group pics
I loved this group pic and seeing that huge gray beanie on Phoebe's head HAHAHAH
Then some two's and three's
Then she got some individuals
This is pretty little Aubrey in the Gray Zebra tee. Love it mixed with the purple and her black boots.
Meet Presley- She was smiling the whole time. She had on the Gumbo tee, Red Beanie, ripped jeans and red chucks.
Next up was Isabella who had on the white tiger tee, mustard colored corduroy pants and purple & gold scarf.
And last, but not least was Elly- she was rocking the new blue #1 Dog tee, some cool flannel, jeans and our logo hat.
We also had Phoebe there in the mix trying to keep up with everyone. She was the youngest in the group (3 years). Does it ever amaze ya'll how good your kids will act for other people?!?!
Phoebe had on the new BIG CHUCK shirt, denim skirt, gray tights and fringe boots.
Our employee BreAnne and her boyfriend David came out to watch and lend a hand if needed.
They looked like a cute little Big Foot Family :)
There were Moms and kids every where
and Brent too!
I tried to snap some behind the scene pics of the whole shoot going on.
Thank you again Donielle!!
Like the shirts used in the shoot? Here is a closeup of each...
The Short Sleeves are $24 and the Baseball Tees are $26. Most of the kids in the shoot had on a 6t except for Phoebe who had on a 2t.
Hope you like some of the new Fall looks for the little people. They are all available online, or at select retailers. We will be in Lafayette, LA Sept 21-24th for Tinsels and Treasures at the Cajun Dome, so if you have any coon-ass friends, send em our way. www.mrpstees.com
