This photo session has been in the back of my brain for a few years now. A couple years ago I had a request for a similar session where a little girl was dressed up in mommy’s wedding dress. I was so in love with the idea and the photos that I couldn’t wait to try it on my girls. At the time my daughter was far too young and small to take photos with my wedding gown on. I anxiously waited for my oldest to get just a little bigger. Fast forward to today and at four years old, I thought she was the perfect age to play dress up in the gown. It’s very fitting since daily she is dressed up in one of the Disney princess dresses. I think she enjoyed playing dress up in my dress and veil even more than her Elsa costume! This was exciting for her and even Daddy wanted to jump in for a few shots.
My intent is to create a photo book out of the images to give to her when she gets married. I was able to capture so many images that they are all becoming favorites of mine quickly and will fill up the photo album. Here are just a few of my favorite shots (and when I say a few, I mean quite a lot:) ) I love being able to do special projects with my children and since I have two daughters, I know that I will be trying another version of this in another year or two.
I know this idea isn’t for everyone, but we sure had a lot of fun and she sure is cute! I love all the comments from?those of you who visit my blog! Let me know what you think below…I’d love to hear!
Just in case you wondered what it originally looked like….here is me over ten years ago on my wedding day in Vegas! Who would have guessed back then that in ten years I would have four kids ( 2 of them girls) and would be recreating a wedding day dress up! It’s pretty cool:)
