bonnie & co.
Sweet little Lorna. I had the absolute privilege of meeting her and her equally sweet parents last fall during my mini-sessions. After our mini, I felt like 15 minutes was not nearly enough time with her. I was so thrilled then when, a few weeks later, Bonnie booked a spring session with me. We chose the absolutely gorgeous Versailles Park in posh HP, simply because the park has special meaning for Bonnie and Hamilton. It was on the grounds of this park where much of their courtship took place. They'd go for long walks there, or have picnics on the grass. They even had their engagement pictures taken here. So, with their blue-eyed tow-head in tow, it was a sentimental session, to say the least. Especially when Lorna arrived wearing a vintage, buttery yellow dress set that Bonnie once wore when she was her daughter's age (and I'm pretty sure I had the same set in pink!), a lovely cotton frock that Bonnie's mother brought back for her granddaughter on a recent trip to Ireland, and the piece de resistance: an antique dress that Lorna's great-great-grandmother wore when she was two. The dress was over 100 years old, with the daintiest lace collar. Despite the chilly winds that joined us that morning, Lorna was a champ when it came to changing outfits for us. And while she was very busy throwing leaves into the blue waters of the fountain, she did oblige us with a few sweet shots. Bonnie, thank you so much for the honor of working with you and your family once again. I loved the stories behind the park and the dresses. Enjoy your sneak!
