Behind the Name


Hello Friend! My name is Kasey Colby. I am an Entrepreneur, Wedding and Portrait Photographer, Online Clothing Boutique Owner, Rising Tide Leader, and many more titles! But the ones that mean the most to me are the ones that are given to me by my closet friends and family. Which is Daughter.. Sister... Cousin.. Best Friend... Or Great-Granddaughter!
Dear Birdie is named after my Great Grandma, Bertha (or Birdie, as everyone called her). She was, and is still, my role model. She raised ten children starting in the 40s all the way through the 60s in the south-end of Peoria, Illinois. One of these children was my mother’s father.
Great Grandma Birdie was a fantastic cook and never complained about a thing. She was also the sassiest, yet sweetest woman I have ever met. I don’t know how she held our entire (Gigantic!) family together for all these years, but she did. And I see her all the time in each of my aunts, uncles, and cousins in different ways.
I hope that I can continue to spread her legacy through this business and in my own personal life. And also, to spread her love of family and God into each person that comes to visit my online shop.
