Abram on His Trip to Germany and Traveling in General

Abram is Brayden’s younger brother, and he and his family recently had the opportunity to visit their relatives in Germany. We asked Abram to share a bit about their experiences. I know you recently traveled to Germany, what did you think of your trip? It was awesome! What was the most surprising thing you ate or drank? I loved the spaetzle and schnitzel. They were both really good! If you had to fly that long again what would you bring or not bring? I got a Kindle for Christmas, so I would bring that. I would also bring my mp3 […]

Brayden’s Book Recommendations and More

We’ve known Brayden and his brother Abram indirectly for years courtesy of their Grandma. (In fact, many of you probably know Alison as she is a terrific customer-service rep who worked in our small office for many years, only retiring last month.) Brayden is a jewel in the studio; we were all surprised with how quickly we were able to get the pictures we needed! What is the most recent book that you read because you wanted to? Hunter Brown and the Secret of the Shadow. My mom got it for me at a homeschool convention. She even met both […]

Caleb's Science Interview

Caleb’s Science Interview

Now you finally get to meet the big brother to the terrific Ethan, Alea, and Mia! We’ve been impressed with Caleb (& his siblings!) every time this family comes over. He is always eager to jump in and help with his little sisters behind the scenes, in addition to his always-professional work modeling. Here is his science-themed interview: Do you have any experiments that you’d like to try? Yes.  I would like to work with electricity or chemicals and make an explosion. What is the funniest/scariest/most interesting experiment you’ve ever done? I haven’t done very many, but I’ve asked my […]

Stephen Talks About Construction

Stephen Talks About Construction

We first met Stephen and his family (including his sister Rachel, who also modeled for us) when our church joined with theirs in feeding local hungry families. One of the things we absolutely love about these siblings is their sense of humor. We seem to spend as much time teasing each other as we do working! Here is what Stephen had to say about construction after modeling one of our new construction kits: What was your favorite construction kit growing up? I absolutely loved Legos! I liked following the instructions and building something amazing. If you could build anything for […]

Ethan chats about art

Ethan Chats About Being An Artist

Ethan is big brother to Alea and Mia, and younger brother to Caleb. One of the items he modeled for us this time was the Djeco Abstract Art Kit. We knew we’d chosen the right person to demo it when he asked if he could keep working on it after we finished the shoot! In your family, who is the artist? My grandma, my dad, myself and my brother. What do they do that’s artistic? My Grandma drew beautiful pictures, my dad makes works with wood and also makes furniture.  My brother and I draw and make Lego sculptures and […]

Alea's Timberdoodle Collage

Alea on Traveling

Sweet Alea is one of almost a quarter of our Timberdoodle models who have been adopted. Alea was born in Kazakhstan and now has two loving brothers, Caleb and Ethan and a little sister, Mia. Alea has always been a great model, but her pictures from this shoot were absolutely amazing. One of our favorites was this one of her with the GEOpuzzles, so we asked Alea to tell us a little about her traveling experience. What is the first airplane trip you remember? When we went to Nashville when I was five years old. What was your favorite part? […]

Mia on Animals

Mia and her family joined our portfolio of local models before Mia even came home from Taiwan. At an adoption fundraiser we began talking about Timberdoodle photo shoots with Mia’s mom as their family  jumped the last few hurdles to getting Mia into her forever family. They volunteered to participate and we found at our next shoot that the kids (Caleb, Ethan, Alea and, of course, Mia) are naturals! One of our favorite pictures of Mia this time was the one below, of her testing the On The Farm Threading Game, so we asked her mom to tell us a […]

Meet Rachel – All About Brains

We first met Rachel and her family (including her brother Stephen, who also modeled for us) when our church joined with theirs in feeding local hungry families. We have loved getting to know them by working alongside them, and the weeks that our schedules overlap have totally become a highlight for us!  We recently interviewed Rachel about the brain; here are her brilliant answers: What’s the smartest thing you’ve ever done? The smartest thing I’ve ever done would be the decision to help out at my church’s feeding ministry – that’s where I first met the Deffinbaughs! The least smart? […]
