I was so excited for this shoot I could barely contain myself. I have been dreaming about it for MONTHS. Since I first found out that Emily, my bestfriend, was pregnant. I knit a crazy amount of hats to make sure we had more than enough to choose from. I created new props and shopped for new things I could use as well. It is always so much to have 100% creative control. I have so many ideas in my head and it’s always the best when I can get them out! I love how all these turned out!!!
This blog post is pretty special. The dress that Lily is wearing is her moms wedding dress. Like most women they presevre their dress and it sits in a box the rest of it’s life hoping one day their daughter will wear it on her wedding day. Chances are that isn’t going to happen. So Lily’s mom decided to donate her dress to a place called Angel Gowns. They make dresses from wedding dresses for babies who were stillborn. It’s an increibly nice thing to do. Before the dress got sent in we did photos of Lily wearing it. She looks so sweet in her moms dress.
All I wanted for Mothers Day was photos with my kids & husband. Just had to share a few.
