Spring Beauty

July 09, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I just love this photo-shoot. For awhile, I've envisioned something like this -- two sweet girls, in flower crowns, in a lush field. Yes, I've been inspired by other examples (It's hardly an original idea on my part,) but just to be able to execute it in my own way is a thrill.

I didn't think it was time yet. Spring has come late to NH this year. But, suddenly, the green came quickly. Though I had originally envisioned a summer wild-flower field, I saw how enticing that early, light spring green was and, suddenly, we were on!

My daughter turned 14 this year and this was my perfect chance. She is also friends with another young lady who had the perfect innocent, demure look I was looking for, so we were almost in business! Almost.

I needed the perfect wardrobe. Something timeless and light. Not having anything like that, we ventured to the local thrift store, not expecting the miracle of finding two dresses that would fit the description AND fit both girls (one quite taller than the other,) but you have to start somewhere! We went to the first store and got our miracle. Two perfect dresses.

A happy beginning for my beautiful 14-year-old and thanks to her friend, Victoria, for indulging me. I hope you and your family love the pay-off as much as I do!

These were SO HARD to narrow down! Here are my favorites:
