Abigail | pt. deux

After our shenanigans at the equestrian center (jumping fences, backing the minivan into the stables while blasting music, and using an empty stall to set up our make-up station) I thought we were done for the day…. but NO! Abby pulled out this vintage dress and I stuck flowers in her hair (shoulda added silver bracelets on her wrists 😉 [bonus points if you can figure out that reference] and we played around with the last few moments of daylight.

THIS was my favorite shot in this dress. She looks so ‘Little house on the Prairie-eque”. and yes, I used to watch that ALL the time as a kid.:)

[ps] if any of you out there in blog-land can help me figure out why all these images look flat and lifeless in Firefox Browser but fine in Safari, Ill give you a cookie! I even tried the sRGB color space thing but it I just cant figure it out!

I just pulled your blog up side by side with both search engines and they look the same. They are beautiful on both and I LOVE the last one as well. She is just really gorgeous. K

Ok, so what’s the deal with braclet? I love and utterly adore her dress. I would love to know where she got that.

Safari is a color managed browser. Firefox/Internet Explorer etc. are not. All your images will look different in non-color managed browsers, but it’s possible the difference shows up more with certain images.

Great stuff, the nostalgia you brought to me is awesome :) I went to school for animal science and studied equine science. You captured the light and the feel and the scent of a horse stable so good! I love the other girl in the stable also :) Man the midwest is the capital of senior photography. BTW Krystal and I also do the rock climbing thing…sorry an obscure reference to an older blog post:)

PS. don’t know why our email didn’t except you its cleared daily.

WOW, this whole shoot is so beautiful, I can’t believe her and the light and the images… even the horse layed his head perfectly on the fence for you. AWESOME. OH, and I would guess Bob Dylan, no?
