I don't know if I have mentioned on the blog before but my baby sister is getting married this summer. When she got engaged I had a mini mid life crisis. She is ten years younger then me and there is no one in between us.
I remember holding her as a tiny baby thinking about her wedding day. I wanted to make sure to get a photo session in even though she has an officially photographer
(Oddly enough I some how didn't think I could handle shooting a wedding I am part of 8 months preggers and with 3 cuties on my own ha!) One of the things I have absolutely loved about being back in the states is the overwhelming amount of amazing locations to do photo shoots.
Every where I look there are little "hidden" spots that are perfect for photos.
I talked her into donning a retro outfit I put together and after some convincing got her fiance to go with it. We used the red suit case that our mom brought with her from Ireland when she moved her to marry my dad.
When I told them where I was taking them I think they thought I was a little crazy. I described it as the "McDonalds parking lot by my in-laws house". We both drove the '68 Volkswagen beetle in high school so I thought it would be fun to incorporate it.
We had to do some funny ones
Since her fiance is quiet the jokester
It was a fun shoot and it was nice that they already had their official engagements so there was literally nothing to have but a good time :)
In other photography new Evie is turning two soon and I wanted to get some shots for her birthday invite. I made her a dress using the easy peasy Sweet Dress pattern.
I quilted together a bunch of fun fabrics to make it since I couldn't decide on just one.
I made her some ruffly leggings using some tiny remnants of ruffle fabric.
Of course it involved a cupcake bribe.
There are soooo many cupcake stores here it is crazy! Evie started doing this new thing when I tell her to smile. She simply tips her head the side and stares at me. It is hilarious.
I am pretty excited to celebrate and cannot believe how fast she is growing up!!
