I Wonder.....

By chase
I persuaded my Granddaughter, Paige, to sit for me this afternoon,all manner of bribery was needed but we got there in the end.
The dress I bought some time ago from an Antique Shop,it is a 1930's ball gown with hand-stitiched embroidery,so very pretty.It didn't fit Paige but a couple of clothes pegs later & all was well Wink

Lit by one softbox up to her right with a reflector behind her.
The bg was yeuk so I dropped on a complimentary texture layer...just because...Wink & yes,I like the hair across her very Paige.

Thankyou for taking the time to look/comment.
Janet xx

Fancy banning Uncle Alan...such a nice chap,so willing to share his wildlife information with small people...Peggy will be gutted Wink
