There is an old saying that "Every momma crow thinks her babies are the blackest."..... Well let me tell you, this momma is no exception. I'm going to be beating boys away with a giant stick...
As a Franklin County Missouri Photographer, I have the pleasure of getting to know so many wonderful clients. Years ago, one of those clients shared a tradition she had with her daughter, that I since adopted with my own stunning beauty. Every year, for Addyson's birthday portraits, I get a beautiful white dress for her to wear. The idea is that these images will be preserved & proudly displayed on her wedding day (far far far far far in the future as her daddy likes to say.) I love this idea so much. It's something special that I get to do with her each year. Both of us look forward to this time, planning & shooting each session together.
(This first 2 images are a compilation of 54 images each, stitched together to create this wide angle panorama with a shallow depth of field. It's known as the Brenizer Method. So much fun to create.)
Oh how my girl melts my heart! Not only is she beautiful outside, but she is the kindest, sweetest & most loving little girl. She has a way of making everyone she meets, fall in love with her instantly. Her brothers just adore her & spoil her like crazy... (as do her daddy & I.)
I would love to hear about your traditions!
I have had so many clients want to use this idea, since we started shooting what I've deemed Addyson's "White Dress Project." Feel free to borrow this idea for your own precious girls!! (brownie points if you book it with me, lol)
