Since graduations are approaching and many seniors out there are having senior portraits taken, I thought I would give some examples of senior portrait styling. My inspiration comes from my sister and spring flowers. She had her senior portrait taken with gerber daisies. They have become a significant symbol to represent my sister and the too short, but beautiful life she lived.
Girls, have fun with the floral prints seen everywhere this season. Go with a small print with shoes and accessories that pop! Layer with a cardigan or jean jacket. Look for unique accessories like this head wrap from Vintage Rose Wraps and necklace from eco Bling Couture on etsy. Wearing both together might be a bit much... one of these on it's own would look darling! Pink, green or gold shoes... wedges or flats... you'll look picture perfect!
Of course, a dress from Abercrombie & Fitch :), jacket from Eddie Bauer and shoes from Zappos.
This Sunday will mark the 12th anniversary of my sister's death...
My younger sister, Emily Elizabeth Ell, was killed by a drunk driver on May 1, 1999, the night of her senior prom. The driver that took her life was a man the age of my own father with two teenage daughters of his own. He weaved in and out of traffic down Scottsdale Rd. that night, going nearly 100mph after drinking heavily at a strip club. He is now serving a 20 year sentence, the maximum penalty for this crime.That night I lost my sister and only sibling.
Please, don't drink & drive...
Our last conversation was that day. Emily called me down at UofA to ask my opinion about how she should style her hair and what accessories to wear. I told her to wear her hair down and that accessories weren't necessary. I knew she would feel more herself, not being so done up. Emily, in the silver gown she borrowed from our cousin, would be a head-turner for sure! I told her to have fun and be safe...
Love you Em... you're always in my heart!
