New baby Harper

It has been waaaaaaay too long since I have blogged! Fall is my busiest time of year (usually) but I have been going non-stop since early spring! Right now I am finishing up the last 3 weddings of 2016 and also doing a lot of family photos for those holiday cards. I won’t take away too much time from editing, but i had to share what I was working on today. As soon as I have these holiday projects completed and take a little vacay, I will be catching you up on all that has happened this year! But for now here is some new baby yumminess to tide you over.

Harper was born the week before Halloween and this was definitely the cutest little pumpkin around. This little sweetie was dreaming away as I took some of her first photos…

Vintage Flower Girl Dress–from 70’s to today

flower girl rose bouquet

I hold on to things for sentimental reasons. One of those things I have kept is a flower girl dress from a neighbor’s wedding I was in as a small child. My neighbor Janet was also my baby sitter and very good friend. She had her sister make a soft sky blue linen dress for me with an antique lace collar and cuffs. I remember parts of the wedding at the historical courthouse building, and I remember the dress.

Being that my daughter is the same age right now, I thought it would be a nice tribute to have her wear my vintage 70’s flower girl dress. My neighbor still holds a very special place in my heart, so what better way to show her than to have my daughter wear the dress that I wore. To top it off, we went to the house I grew up in to take the photos in my brother’s rose garden. We made a colorful rose floral crown in pinks and whites. We also hand picked roses for her basket and a small bouquet. These photos are special to me in so many ways. Enjoy!

The cutest almost 2 year olds explore the forrest

I may be a tad biased, but I am thinking these kiddos are pretty cute. I am creating a really cool album through BLURB. I am a little behind on making personal albums (ahem) so when I saw the flash sale for 35% off I had to go in and finish up some projects to get my books ordered by monday (tomorrow!!!)

These sweet children are a bit older now, but they still love each other! I will be doing an actual photo shoot with these two coming up soon, so stay tuned for that!
