One of the things I love about being a creative soul is having the ability to do seemingly impractical things at a moments notice. Impractical is just the word my hubby used when I call him at work yesterday afternoon to tell him about an adventure that Lauren and I would be having. There was a blizzard in full swing, near white out conditions, roads were awful, all afternoon activities everywhere were cancelled, and Lauren and I met with a photographer friend of mine from high school for a bit of blizzard tutu twirling. Oh yes, you read that right... we met with Lora of Lora Ann Photography at Highland Park for an impromtu tutu photoshoot.
What an adventure have! I called Lauren's school to say I would be picking her up early and when I grabbed her hand at the door I said "come on... we are going on an adventure!" She was giddy with excitement the whole car ride to the park. We picked up my Mom and her bulldogs along the way too (photos below) and even they got in on the tutu fun. Once there, we stripped off our coats, plopped down on a blanket into a near foot of snow, and, though we shivered just a bit, we made a memory that I hope will stick in Lauren's heart for a long long time. And I have to say a HUGE thank you to Lora for so beautifully capturing those memories. I will cherish these images more than you know!
If you are local, I would highly HIGHLY recommend setting up a shoot with Lora. Her photos are stunning and I know you won't be dissappointed. If you would like to see the individual shots shown in these collages, hop on over to my Flickr Photosteam.
