{courtneycourtney} non-stop optimism

ISO : childrens photographer with studio



I live in the Midwest for the most part. Y'all live all around the world!
The weather doesn't always cooperate, and I don't like to think of models being overheated in longsleeves in the Summer, freezing in the Winter for outdoor shoots.

Are you a photographer? With an indoor studio? Or a cool indoor space with lots of light?
I would love to see your work!
Also please tell me average your turnaround time.
{I get antsy and can't wait to see your photos!}

You will get to keep the clothing if you wish, so please also tell me your models' sizes.

So, send links to your work, time frame, and sizes/ages to info.courtneycourtney@gmail.com

I do get a lot of requests, so now's your chance! Who knows what it could lead to...

These first two are some past indoor shoots:

You may remember these cool shots by Pascale Wowak of last year's winning circle silkscreen contest and a dress featuring the print!

A Bamboletta holiday!

'you're working on vacation?!?'

When I tell friends that I am taking my sewing machine on vacation, that is the typical response. But I never really see it that way, I guess that is just how much I love to sew, design and do what I do. There is something about creating (and for me the same could be said about exercising) that I get antsy and eager when I don't get to make things after a day or so. I did scale down and focus on Bamboletta clothing during this stretch, of course I will be sharing girls dresses as usual.

Enjoy the photos! I know there are plenty of new Bambos in your households all over the world right now :)

Pick most of these up online at http://www.etsy.com/shop/courtneycourtney tonight, at midnight central!








By the way, I think some of these will work for your boy dolls!
