The beautiful Aya of Strawberry Koi had posted this entry on her blog with so many gorgeous photos of herself in dresses she was selling. I fell in love with a couple of the dresses, especially one. I have given it a happy home. This dress will be posted up all week because I took a lot of photos wearing it alone and with my family in photos.
I was looking at a bunch of kids staring at me as I was taking these. There were a few people who kept walking through or rode their bikes by. One guy asked me if I was doing a school project (after he told me a train would run me over). . . which is weird considering he even asked my husband who was standing talking to our sons (but Rob didn’t hear him and gave him a weird answer that had nothing to do with it). I just told him “I’m past that age”. . since most college kids graduate at 22, and I am 26. . .granted I know people who went to college in their 30s and 40s.
The back details (this one shot by Rob)
Vintage Dress: Strawberry Koi Vintage
Shoes: Oxford boots from Forever 21
Flower hair accessory: Lila-jo
Speaking of which my husband is so wonderful to be supportive of me doing these shoots. He does read my blog and puts the photos on his work computer wallpaper and phone wallpaper too. He was right near me as I took these. . I was all done with the shoot and getting the tripod packed up. Here is our jeep and the kids are in the back and Rob is leaning over talking to them through the window.
So thanks to him being a good sport (and my sons too).
Thanks everyone for the condolences about the loss of my uncle. You are all very sweet.
