I was up at my parent's house hanging out a couple weeks ago when I told my mom about this idea I had. I knew that she still had a bunch of dresses she used to wear decades ago and I wanted to do a photo shoot with my youngest sister in them, in an orchard. I was hoping to go for a vintage dreamlike setting. Mom said yes and my sister started to try on the dresses so I could see what I liked. We found about 5 dresses.
A week later I was on the road with my sister, Truly, and we were headed to some orchards near home. I was hoping the trees would be in bloom and some were but not to the extent that would work. So, we ended up at a friends house and we used their backyard. It's amazing back there. The dress we went with this time (we only had an hour before we had to get back) was a Gunne Sax dress my mom wore at her wedding reception in 1977. Gorgeous!
Anyways, that is how I got this picture. We had a ton of fun going to different parts of the backyard. (It's huge with a stream and boulders at the back.)
