End of Summer Shoot!

Yessssssssssssssssss! I have discovered a new passion!. Well,..not really new. I have always loved to take photos but this was the most fun that I have had doing so in a while. The day was so lovely and fulfilling despite that fact that two of the girls couldn't make it. The three that did were so perfectly suited to the style and so natural that the shoot went off without a hitch.
It was a very, very warm day and the sun shone down on us unmercifully! I tried to get most of the shots in the shade and even took a few by the water. Grounds for Sculpture is such a beautiful place, I recommend it highly.

All of the clothing, bags and hats were vintage. The two petticoats that Laura( blonde!) wore were so delicate and amazing!

We had to wear wristbands to prove that we paid to get in. Can you spot one?
I bought this dress from the Goodwill for $25!
Our little buddy Winthrop. After much screaming (from him!) M put him safely in a tree.

Secret Garden

People all over the park were gawking and asking questions all day. I Thought that it would be pretty obvious what we were doing, (especially since I had a camera and they were posing for it) but apparently not. We were stopped at least 15 times.

People were also quite interest in M's hair!

I was having so much fun that I nearly forgot to take product shots!

By the end of the day we were all hot and tired. We went back to the cafe and had ice cream!

All of the accessories here are being sold in my etsy shop! You can buy them buy clicking on my shop link to the right.
I will be doing shoots for a few fairy kei pieces on Monday so stay tuned!

I hope I don't sound rude, but is that honestly her real hair? o__o Because it's absolutely amazing! How on earth did she grow it that long?! *envies like crazy*

Those dresses are beautiful, and so perfect for the setting! You three look like a fairytale!

Yes, that is her hair! She has been growing it forever and never gets it cut. I'm not actually in any of the photos this time, I was behind the camera!

@ Miss lumpy:
Thanks! I had so much fun doing it!

nice shots. i loved how the girls matched the scenery. it was as if the place was made foe them:D

your friends' hair is as long as my sisters' and often, people think it is a wig and when she says it's real, their jaws would drop.
