An Opportune Moment

This week, my hubby and I set out for a nice photoshoot. A field of sunflowers was in bloom so we rented an antique couch prop and hurried over there.

These lovelies only last a week or so before they are done for the summer.

Unfortunately, even though we shoot early in the morning, it was still hot and sticky so my hair wasn't so great.

The secret to faking good hair is a great hat.

And the secret to not blinking in shots is to take pictures where you are purposefully closing your eyes. Or wear sunglasses.

For the shoot, I wore a me-made dress and vintage hat and gloves.

Love these yellow gloves! They make me feel so lady like!

It was so much fun to get to shoot with these lovely flowers!


  1. Wow! You look like you fell right out of the pages of an old pattern catalog!

  2. Picture perfect! Those sunflowers are amazing! And I also love your little yellow gloves.

  3. How fun to rent an antique couch and to capture those lovely sunflowers! You look lovely in your dress and I love this scene!

  4. How beautiful! You look like a teenage Shirley Temple in some of these. :)

  5. What great pictures! I love them all, Hubby is a great photographer and you are the perfect vintage model. Your dress paired with the hat, the settee and the backdrop of sunflowers, sheer perfection!

  6. Oh how fun! And I love the color scheme! Your dress is marvelous and is really set off with the yellow!


  7. Your dress is perfection amongst all those sunflowers! I want a blue gingham dress now in the worst way. And I love how you accessorized with vintage hats and gloves. I'm trying to get up the courage and the know how to wear my vintage hats more often.

  8. I've said it before - you're too darned cute! The photographs are lovely and you will treasure them for years to come. Thanks for sharing them!

  9. So stunning!!

  10. Please tell me you took that fabulous medallion back settee back inside when you were done!!
