the beach


We decided, given the chilly weather, to attempt the Duffy-inspired photo shoot. Loopy wore two sweaters... and false eyelashes.



I think when she is older, Loopy should wear false eyelashes all the time... she wore them well. They didn't "wear her". What do you think?



Do you think it would be glamorous to be the only girl in high school wearing false eyelashes? Or just odd?














If I could get away with wearing them and looking this good... I would wear them every day! But I can't put them on my own eyes. I can only put them on other people.





Don't laugh, Loopy. You'll be old someday, too.



I made twenty thank you cards for the participants of the Zombie Jar Swap. I've seen pictures of some of the projects and it's very exciting! Participants will be posting on the 25th of October.


The Fan made me write thank-you cards as soon as I was old enough to hold a pencil. I did the same for Loopy... with Thanksgiving coming up this weekend, we have much to be thankful for. What are you thankful for, reader?

WOW - these are the best yet!
Duffy herself should be very flattered by these beautiful photo's of Loopy.

Just say Julie said...

These are incredible photos. Props to the photographer and the model!

Loopy...wow! What a natural beauty! I want your hair! Hey Saucy...do you think you can make the Sprouts hair flow like that in the breeze? The cards are fab! I'm still trying to figure out how to put the jar swap on my blog!
ahhh!

Liz said...

Excellent photos. You have a heartbreaker on your hands. Loopy is beautiful.

Hey Saucy, McDreamy just saw me whiz by the pics of your pears....the started to pant and drool then I showed him the pic of your pie and he asked if it was too late to marry you! Humph!

Helena said...

Wow, these photos are amazing!!! Loopy looks fantastic. I think she's got The Fan's high cheek bones.
And you are a great photographer, Saucy!

Can I just say how beautiful Loopy is! I wish I was as beautiful! Those photos are awesome!

koehmstedt said...

OMG can we say "all grown up" together? Loopy is just beautiful and Saucy's other full-time job must be to beat back the suitors. I love the filters you used on the photos.

My mom made us write thank you notes too and it has stuck.

Laura said...

Beautiful pictures - and she can just start a new trend with the false eyelashes. Be careful who she bats those pretties at!

Lisa said...

Those photos turned WAY better than Duffy's photos. Loopy is a natural. Great job you two.

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

The girl has moxie--with or without the false lashes. I love how retro she looks!

SOINSPIRED said...

Unbelievably! Absolutely gorgeous. Both the model and the photography. I'll email you the name of a product that is supposed to make your eyelashes look like your wearing false ones.

Jerri-Lea said...

WOWZA have you prepared yourself for the day when high school arrives? As a Mom I don't know if we can mentally prepare ourselves. Loopy, you are once again stunning!

My Mom also MADE me write thank you notes. Now I'm glad that it has become a part of us. My daughter and I try to sit down on the third Sunday of every month and write thank you's, hello's or put together other little thinking of you notes and goodies.

I am so thankful to live here in Canada with my family. We are truly blessed to have our two children after so many struggles to become parents.

Amy said...

Great photos! And I am thankful that I finally found a box that fits to send my zombie jar!

Lisa Milton said...

It makes me want to play with some false eyelashes, right now.

These were great shots. I love the one near the end, with the big smile and looking over her shoulder.

So happy.

Katie said...

Crap'ola! Saucy, that girl's going to be a heart breaker. Your daughter is so beautiful. And the pictures are amazing too.

I really have to get out with my girls and try my hand at a photo shoot.

Yin said...

Oh Miss Saucy, I'm just blown away! Loopy is so beautiful and you've captured her beauty perfectly!

Oh, and I'm thankful I found this blog, for one... =)

Wendy said...

Lovely photos...
What am I thankful for...my kids, the Hubby, family in general.
And I'm a thank you note fanatic myself :)

Kristi said...

Loopy is simply gorgeous and the photos are absolutely beautiful...great work! :)

I am known (by family and friends) as the "over-thanker" because of my thank you notes...I send them for each and every occasion.

Oh, and I am thankful for the changing of the seasons, family and friends who love me and my health and happiness...life is good! :)

Amy said...

She could be a "false eyelash" model... seriously! Wouldn't have even known they were fake!

My dad taught me the importance of thank you cards as well... something I enjoy doing now- hopefully I can pass that on to my kids one day!

adrienne said...

What beautiful photos.
My daughter's whole Halloween costume revolves around getting her hands on some false eyelashes. Who can blame her? They're so much fun.

Tamara Jansen said...

I've never yet been brave enough to wear false eyelashes....I'm so afraid they'll come unglued at some inopportune moment. Perhaps I should rethink that?!

A glance at my world said...

The photos are beautiful! Great job to the model and the photographer! The eyelashes look good. Just curious...where are you from?? I saw that you said Thanksgiving is this weekend and I assumed that you are not from the U.S. then.

MJ said...

Another great photo shoot!

I look forward to receiving the card too! Fun, fun, fun!

What am I thankful for? I am thankful that we are healthy, have a warm home and all the essentials (food and clothing). What more could I ask for?

Mom Taxi Julie said...

She is so beautiful and you do a great job with the photo shoots!

Her Shabbyness: Sweet 'n Southern said...

She's so gorgeous! That is a lovely photo shoot--so beautiful and natural. Just perfect. And, I don't think there's anything wrong with false eyelashes. They do look fantastic on her.

Loopy is gorgeous! And probably would be in a brown paper bag, too!

I am thankful for my beautiful 13 month old son. Everyday, all the time ;)

Indigo Robe said...

Could you adopt me as your sister?

Sigh....

I'm still in my jammies....

You get more done in a day than I get done in... well.... I dunno. But yeah for inspiration! THANK YOU! xo

Angela said...

You know I think that you are a wonderful photographer and this just proves it! Miss Loopy you are getting more and more beautiful (just like your Mother)!

My favs are 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 ...5 being my fav... the juxtaposition of the shot and the sepia...brilliant. I see Faith Hill and Audrey Hepburn... Wow!

I think she looks amazing with the false eyelashes!! I wonder if I would look silly at the grocery store like that?
