My sweet little girl thankfully indulges me by “modelling” clothes or accessories on occasion and let me say that this time she was a TROOPER! I photographed her in this adorable dress (found HERE) and hairband on a rather chilly Ottawa evening in October, but she just grinned and bared it for me…that’s my girl!
I fell in love with a dress similar to this and contacted the store owner in Fort Worth, TX. She was so great to deal with and made this dress specifically for my daughter as she’s a little taller than her usual patrons. I was thrilled with how she adapted the dress and my daughter looooves it.
It was the beautiful detailing of the wee flowers that sold me…so precious! I love photographing little girls in slip dresses, beautiful light and fields! There’s something so classic about it
As always, when looking at the “mash potato” clouds, we discussed what animals we saw…less dinosaurs these days, but many, many, fairies and princesses…
Styled sessions are always fun, so make sure you tell me what your child/children are interested in as I *always* try to personalize my sessions to you and your family. You may think, “My daughter likes to dance on her Daddy’s toes” or “We always watch movies as a family on Friday nights” are insignificant details to tell me, but it’s these types of special details that get my creative photography juices flowing!
Looking forward to an even more fabulous 2012!
