Finding Inspiration On Pinterest

Several months ago, a young mom contacted me and asked me if I'd be interested in trying out a photography set up she had found on Pinterest.

 I'm always game to try something new, but I was neck deep in plants and struggling with exhaustion. (which I later discovered was due to seriously low iron)

I asked if she would be willing to wait until June to try it. She told me there was no hurry.

A few weeks back we touched bases again. I did a bit of research, we set a date and before you knew it, I had a sweet little girl playing dressup in her mom's wedding dress.

We started in the studio, but my tiny space was a little cramped when it came to displaying that much dress. . .


 There were a few challenges, as fitting a tiny three year old into her mom's wedding dress required a little creative tailoring. . .


To change things up a bit we moved to the garden.






 Susan was a good sport and packed up her little sweetie, the dress and a bag full of clamps and we headed off to the Museum. The nice thing about that location was the variety of options when it came to  posing her.

Fist stop . . . the fabulous stone steps . . .






We finished off here, on this steep wooden staircase.








Then, because I love pretty, frilly things, I figured out how to use this fabulous frame in Photoshop. . .


 Isn't she adorable???
