When we started this costume… we had full intentions to create a Peter Pan (I mean, they basically wear the same thing anyways)… but we decided that the antique arrow set made the perfect addition to his outfit… and we all know that Peter Pan only had a tiny knife to fight off Captain Hook and Robin Hood was the master of the bow and arrow. We tiptoed through the trees and my heart filled as I watched his magical imagination start to come to life. This wasn’t just a costume anymore… but a special memory that he can keep with him forever…

Welcome to The Sleeping Willow
Here you will find pieces of my life and every day happenings. I am a mother of two beautiful girls and an incredibly cute bonus son. I am a wife to my best friend. I am a seamstress, a knitter, a home decorator, a baker, and a follower of Jesus Christ. A day doesn't pass here on the farm that I do not thank God for the beauty in these Oregon hills. I am a lover to painted sunsets, frothy lattes, clothing design, photography, preserving childhood, flea market finds, glowing sunrises, the ocean & sandy feet, crisp morning air, tall wheat fields, thrift shopping, and the smell of wood heat in the winter. I collect quilts and antique farm finds for my country home and I love to can jams and fruit butters. I am incredibly blessed to be able to stay home with my children each and every day and create items for newborn and child photographers in the middle of our daily chaos. You can visit my shop here :) Thank you for visiting!

Absolutely AMAZING !!! I have been telling you all yesterday and today.. These pictures are “Priceless”… The emotion I feel when I view these is unbelieveable. They take you back to the time of Robin Hood, and you see the intensity, the emotion in his eyes, in his face, and in everything he does, the details of the costume, and the location too. We are seeing Robin Hood played “through the eyes of a child”… and “Absolutely Unbelieveable” is all I can say… Love love love, everyone of them.. Now have fun choosing one or 2, to have blown up in your home, because that is going to be a hard decision. Again, love your costume, and everything about the pictures.. <3 <3 <3 .. Thank you for sharing..
Thank you so much Debbie! You are so kind! I too am in love with all of them… I am thinking maybe a little book of them will be better because I have another 20-30 edited that I love…. and then I can add the ones with the girls in their costumes to it too
Looking forward to the rest of your pictures and seeing the girls costumes too… Have a blessed day <3
These are so beautiful and will be such a treasure when he is grown. Thank you for sharing!
Absolutely fantastic. I’m blown away – and how much more special that the costume as made by hand, with attention to detail – love, love, love.
These are so very special – he will look back on these and have such good memories…and what’s more…know how very loved he was. Your photography just gets better and better! XO
thank you Brandi! I can’t wait to get them all in a lil book. We had so much fun with their costumes this year… Which I am sure will become playtime dress up clothes worn again and again. Xo
