Father's Day was extra busy this year! I feel like I should share all the ways my husband is an amazing father, but June 15 was also my parents' 40th wedding anniversary! My mom asked for a photoshoot and I was thrilled to oblige...
They went to a studio before the wedding day to get these formals. Isn't it funny how things evolve over time? Are you ready for this? My dad is standing on a block because my mom is 6' but dad only 5'10''! Can you believe they did that back then?
This was a difficult shot to duplicate because, #1, I don't have a set remotely close to what they had for their wedding picture and #2, she wanted their heads and posture as close as possible to the original, but after minutes of "no mom, turn your head EVEN more" it became apparent that we just weren't going to get it PERFECTLY identical...
But I love this shot of them...my dad is an awesome dad and is a doting grandpa to his 3 grandchildren...he didn't mind at all dressing up for our shoot on Father's Day!
How could I resist doing "my thing" once I finished all the shots that SHE wanted?! I didn't, and we got this beautiful "swoosh" shot.
And mom made a cake and used the cake topper from my wedding 10 years ago (I didn't even know she kept it) to recreate a little cake cutting!
And again, I couldn't resist posing my mom on my red chaise...
It was fun to have them in the studio and mom had a great time in her dress again. Shoot, maybe I should do a trash the dress for my 10 year anniversary in October, except that I had it preserved and it would be a shame to break it out of it's bubble...to find out it doesn't fit! lol
