courtney brooke and emily rose

 
You may remember me saying yesterday that I had another post already lined up for Monday morning, and well, just to let you know, this isn't it either. I keep running into some of the most lovely photographs from some of my favorite people, which makes me want to drop everything I had planned and post about their work first.

This set comes from one of my absolute favorite photographers who was out taking pictures long before the whole blog world exploded. Maybe you've heard of her? Courtney Brooke. She's a talented gem, that's for sure, and her blog, Light Witch, always leaves me tremendously inspired. I remember back in 2008 when I was first starting my vintage shop, about a year before I even had a blog, my friends and I would constantly pull up Courtney's photographs and talk about what we loved about them. She's had an impact on me from the beginning!

Anyway, this time around she's done a set with the beautiful Emily of It Girl, Rag Doll, and I'm just smitten with everything about them. I love the lighting with the soft focus and all those amazing vintage threads. I hope she never stops taking pictures.
