It is said that we give our children both roots and wings. In the blink of an eye, it seems like they are grown and headed out for the next leg of their journey.
Erin is headed off to college in the fall. It was the perfect moment to schedule some Mother-Daughter time and create some beautiful vintage style portraits. We used a combination of vintage clothes, thrift store tea stained treasures and a lace dress from amazon to style this gorgeous session.
The indoor part of the session was designed to look very painterly. The warm tones, vanity fair style lighting, and posing gave the final portraits just the look I had envisioned! I love the connection between mother and daughter!
After a change of clothing, we headed outside to the fields around my studio. I wanted to create a wall series of three images processed to look like antique wet plate photographs. Our gravel drive and a big old catalpa tree added touches of drama. The finished portraits are below.
