Kiana's Valentine Portraits 2010

Last weekend we had Kiana's pictures taken for fun and Valentines Day. We have to pics so much of Kiana over the last year. We used to have a ton of Cameron - and now it is Kiana everywhere.

The pics were taken at a portrait event at Belly Buttons Boutique at the AR/MO state line in the Macadoodles shopping center area. Belly Buttons has SUPER cute stuff - you need to go check them out if you live in Northwest Arkansas or Southwest Missouri. You can also check out their facebook page.

The photographer was Calotype Photography. Julie does such an amazing, beautiful job. Here are the pics that she took. I love them all. Daddy is not too hip on these - because he is not a fan of the toothless smile. However, I cherish this stage - it only happens once - and I love the way she looks without those teeth!!!!
Cassidie helped me with the outfit, hair and make-up. I wanted to go for a vintage/glamour look. I bought the dress on my own. You can buy the same cute dress here: BUY THIS DRESS It absolutely has a vintage feel to it!!

We accessorized with a silver belt from Target - couldn't find this online to link to. She also had on some gray boots - but I don't think you can see them in the pics.

The necklace and bracelet are Cassidie's. We just made the necklace a little bit shorter so it hung where we wanted.

To top off the accessoried, I made a cute bow for her hair - thanks to some instruction from Cassidie's sister-in-law, Jacqueline.

For her hair Cassidie curled and hair sprayed. Unfortunately - we had to wait over an hour past our appt, and Kiana's hair doesn't hold curl too well - so it was not quite the same as what we started with - but I think she still looks fabulous!!

Thanks so much to Cassidie for her help (and spending 5 hours with me on your weekend to get her ready) and thanks Calotype for your amazing work!!!
