Both of these sweet kids have September birthdays, so it only makes sense arrange family photos around that time. Birthday pictures, fall pictures, and your Christmas card wrapped into one session? That’s a win-win-win.

We were too late in the season to shoot at an actual sunflower field/farm, but a random undeveloped nook around the corner from home did just the trick! Are these actually sunflowers? I don’t actually know. I just know there was a whole lotta yellow going on and it was exactly right.
These girls had a cold and rainy prom night so I insisted they put their dresses back on the following weekend so we could grab some photos to do these gowns justice! Honestly, hanging out with friends in elegant dresses in a dewy spring garden sounds more fun than actually attending a high school dance.
The thing that made me go “OMG YES these girls need pictures(!!!)” wasn’t necessarily the gowns themselves, but the confidence I sense in dressing 100% your own way during the teenage years many of us spend just wanting to blend in and dress and look exactly like everyone else. Wearing a replica of the 2015 Cinderella ballgown? CONFIDENCE. Making (yes MAKING) your own prom dress out of Nigerian fabric to honor your heritage? CON. FI. DENCE.
I would love to the confidence these girls exude and send it back to my high school self! Probs would have ended up with a prom look reminiscent of Leisl’s gazebo dress, Drew’s butterfly wings, or *anything* from Moulin Rouge.
