Ruthie

Photobucket

This is my cousin Ruth, the eye behind most of the photos taken on here. 

She's 15 and has a self portrait project due at school, so we decided to make to most of it. She had my wardrobe at her fingertips, and chose this beautiful 50s prom dress I've had since I was about eleven. 

I'm not pushing vintage style on anyone...but come on. So cute.

How nice to learn about the people "behind the scenes". Tell Ruthie to keep following her passion for photography, because she has obvious talent.

My favorite is the last one. Reminds me of something you'd find in an issue of Rangefinder.

Laura said...

I love that your cousin is the one behind a lot of your pictures!! My cousin is the one who pushed vintage and thrifting on me, and just made me interested in fashion to begin with. Without her, I might still be wearing awful Mennonite dresses. :)

Laura
