PSF - It Must be the Dress

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

I was asked to take some shots of my youngest in this Dolly Dress by my Mother in Law. She bought this dress for my oldest daughter when she was around the same age as Miss V is now. She wanted to get shots of Miss E so I suggested she take her to one of those Mall places for some studio time. She did and has the photos on her wall. Well, now that Miss V is the same age as E was when she had those shots done, she naturally asked me to take some pictures of Miss V in this same dress. As I was going through the little photo shoot and realizing just how hard it was to photograph a 16 month old I reflect back on the photos that my Mother in Law has of Miss E and remember that those photos were like pulling teeth as well (which is why I told HER to take her to the Mall). Therefore, I conclude that its not the behavior of my girls that makes taking their picture so hard at this age, but in fact, This Dress.

I am not sure this is what my Mother in Law wanted to hang on her wall. I guess I will try again for some better shots.

Ha! Leave it to the almighty MIL!

Hey, you're a photog, surely you must have heard of the 'trash the dress' photo sessions!?

Me thinks you may want to try it.

SHE IS SO CUTE, love the plexiglass too - awesome reflections.

First and last are my favorites. But seriously, they are all WONDERFUL. Every one of them deserves a frame.

Oh, but these are priceless!!! Much better than any canned, "perfect" portrait, they're so real! I love it. And wow, that's quite some dress. September 19, 2008 at 4:28 PM  

That is a girlie girl of a dress! I think the shots turned out quite well, and MIL would love to hang them.

I love the first one. I hope grandma gets that one. We did the same with my two girls. I took a pic in a dress that I wore when I was a baby. (6 months) Then my first daughter was small so at 6 mos she could wear it..cute pic. My second one small, at 6 mos she was in 9 mo sizes..we took the picture, same pose, what you cannot see is the gap in the back!!! and the rings around her little arms from the tightness!
Great post!

Try again? I would hang anyone of those pictures on my living room wall. Those are conversation pieces. I love them!

What a dress! These are adorable.

I think they're cute pictures, and totally show the personality of the cutie in them. You're right it just may be the dress after all. ;)

I've give you something. Swing by when you get a chance.

I think you are way more talented than the mall place!

Oh I don't know, I think they are fabulous! I think she does look like a doll in the standing ones and the shot from behind is great!

I think it's precious! I love the one where she's bent over, bottoms up! I have many photos of Miss Ky's diapered bottom peeking out of what would have been a great shot.
