First Photo Shoot (Behind the Scenes)

Before we were able to officially open our boutique we needed some pictures of our dresses.  So we gathered up our dresses, some props and Maria's girls and headed to Maria's backyard for a little photo shoot.  We are by no means professional photographers, but we had a lot of fun, ended up with a lot of fun outtakes and learned a lot!  Here's a little glimpse behind the scenes :)

 She insisted on making this face for probably the first 20 minutes.  So funny!

 Sweet sisters

Patiently waiting for her turn.

We didn't get everything done during the first photo shoot, so we planned a second one.  Sadly just as we were about to start a thunder storm rolled in.  Darn!  We improvised and did an indoor one.  We learned though that we're much better at doing outdoor photo shoots!

An Introduction

Welcome to Sunshine & Pink!  We are so happy that you are here.  Before we get into all the fun that is going to be happening around here we wanted to introduce the faces behind Sunshine & Pink.

Lisa: My hubby and I will be celebrating our 10th anniversary in January.  Together we have three active boys.  This year all three boys are in school.  It is kind of odd to have such a quiet house all day long!  The boys are loving school and I do have to admit that I enjoy being able to have some time during the day to sew.  I'm really excited about Sunshine & Pink and being able to work with Maria!

Maria: My hubby and I are getting ready to celebrate our 14th wedding Anniversary on the 25th of this month. We have six children, three boys and then three girls. The older four children are in school. The two little girls are home with me all day and I love it. My oldest just turned 13 and my youngest will be two in a week. It's amazing how quickly time flies. The girls are great at modeling what I sew and can be found pulling out fabric for dresses they want.

We met three years ago while we were both living in South Korea and became fast friends.  We had so much fun sewing together and were even known to make matching skirts for ourselves and Maria's girls and then wear them to church that Sunday.

It was while we were in Korea that we really gained a love for fabric and sewing.  There was a great store that we visited quite frequently called Happy Quilt.  Oh man, that was the best fabric store ever!  Nothing like fabric stores here in the United States.

We have spent the last three years improving our sewing skills.  At the beginning of September we opened up a boutique on Etsy.  We have started out with girls dresses, but have plans to add clothing for boys too!  Make sure you head on over to Etsy and check out Sunshine & Pink!
