Sara ~ a POPPY DIP supporter~ in the process of bringing a precious one home from Ethiopia!! ~ writes...
"I love how blogs connect people in the adoption world. When I found Poppy Dip dresses I knew they would be precious on the little girl's I photographed. I don't have a daughter so I started scheming to buy several as gifts for special little girl's in my life! I have been thrilled with the dresses I have bought and what could be better than getting a matching dress for a baby doll...
"The icing on the cake was knowing I could photograph these precious girls in their dresses! Photography has always been something I have loved and in the last several years God has blown me away in the ways he has blessed Darling by Design Photography. Photography is a creative outlet for me and when strangers started approaching me to photograph their children I was amazed. Looking back we had no idea what God had in store for the next several years. He grew our business by word of mouth and I have just been along for the ride. It has been a huge blessing to meet so many great families and capture the story of their families. This past fall my husband and I started the process to adopt from Ethiopia and photography has been a great financial blessing to our adoption. It's amazing how God works in those ways. We love to photograph all over and are willing to travel if you have a need for family pictures. We are often in the Nashville area for different events but live in Paducah, KY and serve the Western Kentucky area. We feel extremely blessed to be connected to an adoptive community and can't wait to use photography to help adoptive families create memories to last a life time!" ~Sara (click on her name for her blog!)

  2. I wanted to tell you Lilly wore her Poppy Dip yesterday and we had 10 TEN! people stop and ask where we got her dress, and even had a few ask if you would make them for adults.

    GREAT JOB! Thanks so much for sharing your talent! I can't wait for the long sleeved ones coming!
