90's Floral Skirt, Peasant Blouse, Tan Flats, Clip Earrings: All Thrifted.
Not sure if you all remember me mentioning, but the reason I didn't get a chance to post yesterday was because I went and got my senior pictures done!
I've been thinking about my senior pictures for quite some time, and wanted something really special that I would cherish forever. I wanted avoid the studio and have the pictures be very natural and a relfection of who I am as a person. I did a ton of research on different photographers in Ohio, and finally came across the perfect one. Her photography was absolutely stunning and everything I could have ever hoped and dreamed for... Soft, cascading lighting with nature backgrounds and a beautiful romantic feeling. I knew that I had to book a session with her right away!
We travelled two and a half hours away down to a little town called Bainbridge which is almost nearly in Kentucky! We went to this absolutely stunning and magical location and I seriously couldn't have pictured anything better in my own dreams! Although it was over 100 degrees during the two hour shoot, the whole thing went incredible... The photographer was an absolute sweetheart and someone I could relate to, and she gave me above and beyond everything I could have asked for! She was an absolute dream to shoot with.
Oh, and you all are probably wondering what I wore for my shoot! Lace is my favorite fabric to wear, so I decided to go with an all lace theme for my senior pictures to give it sort of a cohesive feeling. My mother and I travelled down to Mt. Vernon, Ohio to go vintage clothing shopping a few weeks ago, and I found the perfect vintage dresses to wear (and trust me, it's been awful keeping them a secret from you all!). My first dress I wore was a crimson lace 1950's party dress with a cinched waist,a very full skirt, and a scalloped collar. The second dress I wore was a sleeveless prom dress from 1949 that had a bodice of lace that reached up along my neck, and then the bottom part was a beautiful pleated skirt. The third and final dress I wore actually wasn't vintage, but from Forever21. It was a little peach lace dress with 3/4 length sleeves and a darling peter pan collar! I don't think I could have picked out any three dresses I would have loved more...
The only bad part about getting my senior pictures done is that I have to wait three weeks until I'll be able to see them! I am seriously going to have the absolute toughest time waiting on them, and as soon as I get them I'll make sure to show all of you, too! :D
Hope you all are doing lovely and happy Friday!
With much love, Lauren.
