Matilda Jane * Photo Love Contest * Part 1

I mentioned a while ago that I entered a photography contest by none other than Matilda Jane Clothing. I was super thrilled and surprised to make it through the first round (close to 1'000 entries and only 59 made the cut!!). For the second round all 59 lucky ones received the same outfit and were told to photograph it in any manner they please... the only requirement was that all three pieces must be in the picture.

When the long awaited box arrived, three squealing girls ripped it open to find a dress, striped straightees and a green flower clip. Grace immediately put on the dress... and I had a flash-back to a picture of my mom. Short dress and boots, taken somewhen in the 70's.

I decided to go with that idea for our first shoot. Yes, you heard that right... there was more than one. That's why this blog post is titled "part 1", lol.

So we did the shoot on a surprisingly warm Friday afternoon. Grace in her short, short dress, lacy knee socks and very favorite cowgirl boots. Did I mention the dress is SHORT? I already started doubting my vision five minutes into it. What was I thinking? This is for a kid's clothing company and who's going to look a these? MOMS. And what are moms concerned about? Modesty.

So guess what? None of these were my final entry for the contest =). I just couldn't do it.

But I still would love to share with you. Enjoy our 70's inspired art fair.





So how much are these pants?

Say WHAT? You can't be serious!

Yup, she's a goofball ;-)

Oh, look... she bought the pants! And some sneakers too, lol.

Stay tuned for part 2... with my final entry!!!
