Madelyn in Mom's Wedding Dress

May 01, 2014  •  13 Comments

I love Pinterest for about 10 million reasons:  It's like a bookmarks bar that will never disappear or be deleted during a reformat, you can share the stuff you've done and discovered with others, you can find a ton of projects to do and inspire you, and people find tons of projects that inspire them.  One local mother found a project of this nature on Pinterest of children wearing their mother's wedding dress.  She asked if I would be up for capturing this with her daughter and of course I was :).  We met up with her Kindergartener and  we had her sit down and started  adjusting the dress and getting the veil in her hair.  About 2 minutes passed when she says "are we done yet?".  A wave of terror came over me:  we hadn't even started!  haha.  BUT luckily it went very well, we all had fun, and Mom said that the photos were exactly what she was hoping for, which couldn't be a bigger compliment.

We used the dress as the backdrop to replicate a photo her mom had taken on her wedding day.

M is fun and adorable and I think one of these photos should be printed large and put up at her wedding!  Maybe she will even wear the same dress (or maybe not.. you know how kids are, haha).  :).

What a cute idea! I bet her mom will absolutely love these photos and in 20 years when this little girl gets married, she will love them even more!

I love this idea! These are definitely portraits that the kids and their family can cherish forever. (Also, I have a friend in Hermantown- what a coincidence!)
