Meet my sister, Rasco*. I’m featuring her on my blog today for a few reasons!
First of all it’s her birthday today! So for her 11th birthday, I took her out for a little photoshoot.
Another reason was the dress…
Every little girl should have a dress as special as this, their very own “princess dress”. I remember mine… My Grandma sewed me a flower girl dress for my uncle’s wedding. It was black velvet with gold satin bows and I wore a crinoline with it so it would be “poofy” (especially when I twirled). This is Rasco’s princess dress, and I wanted to have some pictures of her in it before she grows out of it.
The story… Rasco was in town a few weeks before Christmas with our Mom when a copper coloured dress caught her eye. As it turns out the biggest size they had left was too small for her. A trip to Fabricland and some of my older sister’s hard work later… this dress is the result (and it’s so much more beautiful than the one in the store!) Rasco picked the colours of it to match her (gorgeous!!!) hair .
Our location today was a little road/pathway behind out house a ways. When I suggested the photoshoot to Rasco she specifically requested this spot.
I think we both thought it would be more green out there by now (other years the Saskatoon bushes are blooming already!) But it was still rather brown…so we made to with what we had. 🙂
We had fun on the shoot today (or, I did anyways 🙂 I hope she she did too haha!) She’s been a willing participant many times before… thanks for putting up with me again, Rasco. I always love seeing this precious red head through my lens, she’ll be back 😉
P.s. Yes, I always wished I had red hair…just sayin’.
*Rasco isn’t her real name…we’re not that weird ;-). I’ve decided to use nicknames etc. for my siblings (especially my younger ones) on my blog to help keep their lives private. J (It’s not their fault I have a blog 😛 ) (It’s pronounced with a British accent sounding something like this: Rossco)
