So for a while now, I’ve been feeling in a creative rut. I love what I do! But sometimes I want to do something just a little different…and who better to practice on then my own child. Ha. Lucky for me, she’s a pretty good sport. I found a picture of a skirt I loved..learned how to make it and we just happened to be going on vacation to the perfect cabin in the woods! Here are my favorite pictures from that particular session. It was so fun! Would love to hear what you think!

    Lynda Davis - Dawn, these photos are MAGICAL! The forest with it’s textures, colors, and contrasts, along with Hannah’s white tulle dress, with such a gorgeous girl (and I love her natural look) is PERFECTION! These photos give me the feeling that Hannah is the princess in her own fairy tale. LOVE IT! I also love your photo editing. You are very gifted my dear!ReplyCancel

It’s all kinds of exciting when you try to take pictures of your own family! A lovely client of mine gave me permission to use their gorgeous family ranch in St. Helena last fall. We finally made it out there in December. It was soo beautiful but we got there too late, I was having problems with my camera and so in the end it was kind of a bust. So when my parents visited in March, we made a second attempt. The property was still gorgeous, but much more green! Well..I am glad I have pictures of my parents with us, plus an actual family picture, although its not perfect. Its us. And I’m grateful for my imperfect, sweet (and crazy too) family!
