Project 12 Portraits | Moody Black and White

This month was fun, because Emily and I found this beautiful black lace at a fabric shop a while back, and I have been wanting to figure out what to do with it. We were also practicing with her hair for her middle school graduation ceremony, and to match her vintage-looking dress she wanted a kind of retro hair style, which went perfectly with the lace! So we did a trial run with her hair and did the photo shoot.


I think this one might be my favorite, or perhaps the color one below:




And I am cheating a bit here by including a color image, but for some reason I think this one just needs the creamy, soft color.


As always, please continue on in our little circle to see what moodiness Amber found this month!!

    These are beautiful, Jessica! I love the use of the lace. I’ve used white lace before, and hadn’t thought about black- what a great idea!ReplyCancel

    You are always so creative with using different elements in your pictures. I would never have thought about shooting through black lace. Perfection! And as always, your daughter is gorgeous!ReplyCancel

    I showed this to my kids and they said that next time they want me to shoot them through a big thick towel….you are so lucky to have such a cute, patient and willing model! Your idea of shooting through the lace is really cool and you always surprise me with your creativity. Hope your daughter had a wonderful graduation!ReplyCancel
