I once read a poem about a woman whose love was at sea. She waited for him on the seashore and watched for him from her house, day in and day out... perhaps it was a lighthouse. I can't remember the poem or who wrote it, but this photoshoot is reminiscent of that. It felt... haunting, in a way. This old, beaten down house, the sea across the yard, the "waltzing matilda" skirt from Shabby Apple. It was all very romantic to me and I hope that story can come across in the photos. If you know what poem I am talking about, I would appreciate you sharing it. I am sure there are many, but I'd like to hear the ones you know of, just the same.
I am in love with this skirt from Shabby Apple. It is elegant, truly makes me feel like a princess, and waltzing is almost a necessity. The fabric is heavy, in the best possible way, and it swooshes and sways with the slightest movement.
These photos were taken by the amazing Erin Christine Photography. I met her at my local farmer's market a while ago and was so excited to collaborate with her. She is very talented and so easy going. We had so much fun on our early morning shoot. Plus, just look at that photo above... It is definitely one of my favorite photos of myself, ever. Truly a piece of art.
