Nestled in the wildflowers

Shoes: Saver's
Tooled Clutch: Estate Sale

I can't remember if I announced it at the time, but I few weeks ago I was invited to join the Delightful Dozen, a team of 12 girls involved in a continuous clothing swap. As sad as I was to see Kristin from Leproust Vintage go – I think her presence has certainly been missed here in the 'ole blog-O-sphere –I was happy to be voted into the open spot! For my very first DD piece, Beatrice sent over this great Tucker for Target dress.

I've had so many other things to talk about on my blog, that I think I also forget to introduce my new photographer! His name is Corey and he pretty much loves everything about going out to take pictures for me. No worries for Team Jake though, Corey's gay so he's not going to try to steal me away or anything! He's taken the last couple of sets of photographs for me and, so far, we're both pretty thrilled with the results. I'm introducing him to my DSLR and teaching him a lot about lighting, and he's helping me by relieving my life of a tripod and a remote. Photoshoots have been so nice and quick lately, and I've been able to take pictures in places I would never go alone! I definitely wouldn't have been able to achieve these photos without him.

I love both the photographer's photos of you! These past few posts though I will say have been extremely amazing. I love these shots and the outfit looks great.

Starr these photos are beautiful! I definitely need a Corey in my life. It would make things so much easier!!

I love the editing you did as well. Do you use a specific photoshop process? Or just feel it out as you go?

Good job Corey, these shots are amazing! I am so jealous! You look like a beautiful flower fairy...so lovely!

Wow, Starr, this post is wonderful. The photos, the setting, your outfit, everything. I think Corey is bringing some positive juju your way! It is easier to take good pics with a human than with a tripod, I think.
