Fairest of the Fair

IMG_3917 IMG_4211

I'm going to give your girls a fair warning here- cotton candy as a photo prop- not as lovely during the shoot as it is to eat :-p Let's be honest, photos take time, especially in a populated area with photo bombers (ahem- yes, personal experience haha). And cotton candy, I have discovered, loves to drip and melt all over the place and diminish in size substantially by the end of the shoot. First picture- huge, ginormous puff of candy- every other picture- not quite so ginormous and puffy. So, if you were about to look through these and think, "Wow, did that cotton candy shrink?" your observations will now be affirmed :)

Beautiful pics and outfit, and the cotton candy is a fun addition (although a little tricky ;P) Love the bag, is it big & sturdy enough for a dslr, cant it hold something else besides the camera? Btw, so fun to see your getting ready video :)

That blouse is simply delightful!

So beautiful (I always love carnival photos!). And the video was super fun! I admire you for going right in with liquid liner (I always line mine with pencil first and then go over it with liquid)! The blouse is perfect for a fair. :)

I never really get cotton candy because of that reason. It gets SO sticky and messy! I like the bagged kind because at least you don't have to eat it all at once and you can shield yourself from the stick..lol. I think my favorite fair foods are fried dough and candy apples, though! :)

By the way, this is a perfect outfit for the fair! Casual, comfy, and pastel to match the cotton candy. :)

My mom had a blouse just like this in the 1980's that I used to love! She wore shorts similar to it too but longer. Hi Mom!! Okay okay. . .you're not my mom at all, but it was pretty awesome to see a similar outfit to what I've seen her wear shown on a blog. Gorgeous photos. you do the best!
