How sweet is this mother and daughters session?! And it comes with an incredible video from Olea Films!!! My sweet friend Shelby has never worn a wedding dress. She and her husband were married at the courthouse as he was in the military. They share a special, thriving love as well as two beautiful little girls. This shoot in a grove of cherry blossoms is a bit different as I wanted to share a bridal portrait that could be an anniversary or vow renewal type of occasion, but with a focus on the bride and her daughters preparing for the big day. Shelby wrote a letter to her two daughters sharing her hopes for them when they become future brides and Brittany of Farmstead Design Studios rendering it in watercolor calligraphy.
Shelby also shares time with her two precious girls preparing for bridal portraits as well as a gift from the girls from Southern Grown Vintage. We also presented the idea of a mother sharing heirloom jewelry, boxes and rings with her daughters. The bouquet from Good Earth Flowers mirrors the colors of the season and the BHLDN dress reflects the soft sweetness of mother and daughters. The gorgeous cake from Cakes in Art perfectly represents the cherry blossoms and the specialty candies from My Secret Stash make a fun treat for the girls.
These are the words from the letter Shelby shared with her girls…”And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13 My dear daughters,My prayer for you is that the One who created your hearts will lead you to the men who will lovingly care for them. As you grow, I hope that you come to learn just how valuable and treasured you are. My sweet girls, always remember that you are precious to me and my love for you will never end. I pray that on your wedding day and forever after, you will experience profound joy and a rich and lasting love. Someday you will be brides, but you will always be my daughters.”
