{ 52 Wednesdays } | Week 7, Ruffles

Ruffles. I was really put off this week’s theme. While I love all things frilly and ruffly, there’s simply nothing in my life that embodies that. After a lot of contemplation, I thought that this weeks theme would be the perfect excuse to try this Ruffle Tshirt Scarf craft that I’ve been seeing all over Pinterest lately! Since we had Monday off from school for President’s Day, I had the girls I take care of find some old tshirts and we set to work! And because I’m a total doofus, I completely forgot to bring my camera. So luckily, The oldest volunteered for a quick session (15 minutes *maybe*)! She put on her ruffliest dress and some awesome knee high socks and we set to work! Since we were limited on time, we took some quick shots in the backyard. I am really loving this project because it’s forcing me to really think about what I’m going to photograph, and then pushes me to *actually* get things done! So here is Ms. K sporting the ruffles!


Oh, and what photoshoot is complete without a crazy shot?!


Now check out Southern California Photographer, Amy Grace of A Beautiful Life Photo and what ruffles mean to her!

    I love the fun of this, the color – it’s bright and muted at the same time. Great captures and editing!

    Cute! She looks like she was more than willing to be your ruffle model. Love it.

    Love all of these and thank you for posting so many. Great mood and color!

  • […] At first this week was a real challenge for me.  Eva (my daughter) and I aren’t easily characterize by typical female things.  We are feminine in our appearance and mannerisms, but any sort of stereotypical femininity starts to become quite grey from there.  She’s not a ruffle sort of girl.  I however, have a few tastefully ruffled items that are more architectural than frilly.  I have a soft heart for an elegantly taylored blouse–they usually pair well with red lipstick. So this is where my saving grace came in.  I had it in mind to create a macro shot of a ruffle, where it would be less discernible.  This is very me. It seems the group of women who join me in this weekly endeavor, aren’t very ruffled either so it will be interesting to see what everyone else has come up with.  I actually saw a sneak peak of an east-coaster who created the most amazing lizard shots ever (hi Traca! love your post this week).  You’ll have to keep circling through to see them. =) Christine O’Connell, a wedding and portrait photographer of A Million Sighs Photography in Orlando, Florida is next.  See her post here:  http://www.amillionsighs.com/?p=1677 […]
