Darn that Joe Fresh! One day while doing a rare grocery shop at Superstore, I innocently strolled past the children’s clothing section. I really should know better than to even glance in that direction because of course something caught my eye: this time it was a little cloche hat. Instantly, I conjured up images in my little brain of a 1920s-inspired photo shoot. I asked Claire if she’d be game and being the true girly-girl that she is, she was if it meant having a new accessory.
Now, the good thing about the Joe Fresh brand is that it is very inexpensive so we obtained this little hat for only $10. I promised my wallet that I wouldn’t shell out any more dough for the photo shoot – that I’d find things at home to work with the hat. And luckily, I did. Nothing we had to go with it is absolutely perfect but hey, we already had it and I am doing my best to be more frugal.
The night before the shoot, I did a bunch of small braids in Claire’s hair. I wanted smooth waves near her face with the rest of her hair tucked into a faux-bob in the back. With very little effort, I was able to achieve the look I was going for – hooray!!
So off we journeyed to our favourite haunt, Fort Edmonton Park. The photo opportunities are truly endless in the park.
Can you guess why Claire is smirking in the next shot? Yep, she knows she is standing next to a big sign that says “CANDIES” and she knows she and Ren are going to have a treat after the shoot!
Even with the great location that is Fort Ed, my favourite shots of the day are of Claire as she plays made-up games with Ren. They have such fun together, and it shows on her beautiful face.
