Vintage Photo Shoot with Paige

It turned out just as I had envisioned ...
Paige, my little vanity dresser, a few vintage things,
and our photographer friend
on a summer evening
in my backyard.


Shasta daisies were in full bloom
and Paige was ready to pose.


It proved to be a challenge to photograph
the little dresser...with the mirror!
Who would have thought that the reflections in the mirror
would be part of the picture?
We had to shoo off a couple of brothers
who decided to do a little bike riding in the back yard!
And a neighbors house kept showing up where we didn't want it too.


Jenny, our photographer friend,
cheerfully got down on Paige's level
for the best shots.
It was a hot summer evening, with the gnats & mosquitoes
making a nuisance of themselves.


Paige pretended to have a tea party.


Here you can see that Grandma is in the photo too...
as the little girl in the picture frame,
behind Paige's shoulder. 

She even got to pretend to be a bride...
using Grandma's wedding veil.


Sweetly posing...


Now I have decisions to make...
which photos to have printed--what size--how to display...
and this is only a select few of the ones I have to choose from.

 I am so very happy with the way they turned out.
My thanks goes out to

They are all sweet photos and it's hard to choose favorites, but I think 2,4 and 7 are mine!

I love them all too, but I might be biased! :) My fav are the one of her looking in the mirror and one of her smiling with the wedding veil! Those are my favorites from these 7! I have many other favorites as well!

Great job Jenny!!!
