New Costume Collections!

Let yours kids imagination run wild with the new collection at Julie Marie Kids.  
Now your little ones can run around pretending to be a brave king, beautiful fairy, or a majestic bird.  

The Royal Collection:

Every King, Queen, Prince, and Princess need their very own royal robe and crown.  Each robe is made from crushed panne and is adorned with a trim fit for royalty.  This particular robe was done in a rich deep purple crushed panne with gold trim accents and ribbon.  
No royal is complete without their very own crown.  Crowns are made from either a shiny gold or sliver material and lined in felt.  Jewels are hand sewn on to add that extra touch and they Velcro in the back for easy on/off.

The Fairy Collection:

Beautiful fairies flutter around while wearing these delicate chiffon wings and custom made floral felt crowns.  The wings come in a variety of colors from pastel pink to deep fuchsia or light blue to aqua.  The crowns are made from various colors of felt coordinated to the wings or a particular theme.  For example a crown of leaves for an autumn party.

Bird Wings:

The birdies gather in these majestic eco-friendly felt wings.  Wings come in various colors and you can add a one of kind mask to complete the look.  

These particular wings were made to resemble a peacock.  A royal blue and aqua were used for the main feathers and a deeper teal was used for accent feathers throughout.

Artist Spotlight - Locke Photography

Awhile ago I was contacted by a wonderful photographer, Traci Locke to create a fabric banner for her son's birthday. She asked other talented etsy artists if they would be interested in creating decorations and favors for the big event. She then photographed the day and shared the wonderful pictures with all of us.

Recently she contacted me again regarding a photo shoot she was planning on doing centered around the theme of a lemonade stand. I gladly accepted the invitation and sent a custom made lemonade inspired banner. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Traci and look forward to other projects in the future. So, now as a way of saying thank you I would love to share her story with all of you and the wonderful pictures from the shoot.

Meet Traci Locke of Locke Photography:

"I'm a natural light photographer who grew up in Wisconsin. I was into Art from a very young age. I would spend hours drawing and painting any and everything. But, that all changed when I picked up my Dad's manual 35mm camera at the age of 10. I figured out how to use it, and would set up "photo shoots" for my pets, cabbage patch dolls and friends. I created make shift backdrops to feel like a real photographer. In high school I took just one photography class, back in the days of film and loved it! But I never thought I would be able to make a living at it. It was always just a hobby.

My life dramatically changed when I became very ill my Senior year. This massive event shook my confidence and changed my path. Being faced with a life threatening disease changed the way I see the world, it makes me want to capture every beautiful moment! So I began expressing my passion for life through the lens.

It wasn't until my wonderful husband saw my passion for photography and encouraged me to pursue a career. This was 7 years ago. I eventually started my business in Arizona, then decided to move to Naples, FL where I started completely over which has been challenging, but worth every minute. I am now very proud to say that I am a successful mother and photographer. My children and family are my inspiration and source of encouragement and couldn't be happier with where my life has taken me."
