When I grow up... by Basia McAuley

My little girl always dresses up in my wedding dress and tells me that when she grows up, she wants to be just like me and get married in ’mummy’s princess dress’. So I though, hmmm….. A photo opportunity! :o) FYI.. This was my wedding dress which I wore and designed over 9 years ago..

    Oh Yes, I totally agree, the sepia tones are perfect for the image, the simplicity of it adds so much more to the image, gives the child the perfect look of innocence so full of wonder!!!

    This is beautiful, Basia. Your dress is gorgeous, so drapey and soft – a gorgeous image. :)

    It’s just such a beautiful image! I think I tend to like the simplified version better but either way, excellent capture! :-)

    I really like this Basia. Love the reflection in the mirror…superb photography. I like the minimalism of this too…..which it appears to have at first glance……but there is actually a lot going off all at once….all down to the reflection and the shadows in the ruffles of the dress. Great tones too. Doesn’t she look like her mum!
