With the new school year, I realize Loralai has started her “official” pre-school year. She didn’t change classes, she has been in there since her 4th birthday in February, but this feels more real with all her age classmates moving up with her. I know what comes next, Kindergarten which morphs a “baby” into to kid. Its a bittersweet milestone. But until then I’ll enjoy my little girl and her sassy little self. We decided to go Shirley Temple style for the photoshoot marking the occasion.
As of today, our past Santa clients have snatched up all but 9 of our 2017 Santa sessions. Here is your chance to get in on this year’s limited edition sleigh scene.

We celebrated 10 years of business on Friday (March 4th) with a fashion show featuring Matilda Jane Clothing. The models for the fashion show included girls who had been photographed by Kimberly most of their lives. Among the models was Ella Fisher, age 10, the first newborn Kimberly ever photographed. Other models included Cora Ledbetter, Reese Tipton, Lilly Hill, Loralai McNabb, Adalyne Kitchens, Dylan Ramsey, Jewell Charton, Abby Charton, Maddix Johnson, Ava Caudell, Finlee Voss, and Carlie Garrett. These girls walked the runway wearing the 2016 Spring line Happy and Free provided by Matilda Jane Trunk Keeper Heather Ramsey. Makeup artists from Merle Norman were onsite to give the models a touch of fun, as well as hairstylists from Studio 114. Refreshments included springtime cupcakes from Piece-a-cake, punch, fruit, crackers, cheese and champagne. A lemonade stand was hosted by Layne McNabb, Layton McNabb, Levi Ledbetter and Zoey Davidson.
Our studio began business in St. Vincent in 2006 and moved to downtown Morriton in 2011. The boutique studio specializes in babies, children and high school seniors.

We are celebrating! This year marks the 10 year anniversary of Kimberly McNabb Photography, and we are kicking off the celebration year with a fashion show of the absolute cutest photo clothing for little girls.
There will be precious little girls showing off the newest spring line along with delicious cupcakes, pink punch, champaign and more yummy refreshments. Dance to the music, shop the clothing and lets celebrate you being a part of my 10 years in the most fun and rewarding job ever.
If you have never owned this clothing, you are missing out because not only is it adorable in pictures, but it is so comfortable and well made. Loralai can still wear all of her baby dresses as shirts, and they still look as good as day 1. Mixing and matching the line is so much fun. Happy and Free – spring 2016 – see it here – adorable MJ video
March 4th 6 pm at the studio.
What 3rd birthday is complete without princesses, tea parties and lipstick? Loralai celebrated her 3rd birthday with her princess cousins at a royal tea party based on the classic Snow White film. The girls wore Disney dresses, bracelets and lipstick while they enjoyed apple cupcakes, m&m trinkets and delicious ring pops. Their wine of choice was apple juice or royal blue punch. The main cake was made by my future sister in law Rebecca, and I made the song bird cookies.
I had a fun morning with this entergetic dancer. She has more personality than her mamma knows what to do with.
When should you move your not so little baby to a big bed and how do you make the move?
After the one year celebration, you might feel excited for a change and to see your toddler grow. Don’t rush the big girl bed though. With my son we moved to a twin bed at 20 months. He was the best sleeper in his baby bed, but once he had new freedom that changed. Going to sleep was harder, but what was worse was that he ended up in our bed mid night. Now that he’s seven, I suppose I treasure those nights snuggling with him, but I would rather it be on my authority not his.
Now for my very unique daughter, I kept her in her baby bed until she was 14 years old. Okay not really 14 but over 2 and half. We simply turned the crib into a toddler bed, and she had new found freedom. She goes to bed, says good night and then begins playing. We find her in the craziest clothing and accessories after she passes out. She does stay in bed all night, but the getting to sleep is a challenge.
Overall I would suggest staying in the crib as long as they are comfortable or are potty trained and need to be able to go freely to the bathroom. Then make the new bed a big deal and special privilege. What suggestions do you have for keeping toddlers in bed once given the new freedom?
