“There’s a lot of pretty girls in this city, there’s a lot of pretty girls in this town…” Love that song! I just started thinking of it when I began this post because I have had so many beautiful girls from Albert Lea, MN this year! Must be something in the water, as they say.
Lovely Miss Paige here is no exception to the rule. She is simply gorgeous without trying very hard. I couldn’t hardly tell if she had makeup on, she just radiates a natural beauty.
I’ve known Paige and her sister for a while now… ever since I discovered their little boutique in the upstairs of their parent’s furniture store, Brick Furniture.
I was there looking for a mattress for Collin’s big boy bed and I had to just browse around at all the eye candy they have. (I love how they arrange their store, and their window displays always, ALWAYS, catch my eye because Kari picks out some great items.)
Anyhow… in the store there is a loft, they call BG Loft (Brick Girls), where they created a shopping area full of great tops, dresses, scarves, jewelry, and belts that I go ga-ga for every time I visit. They carry a limited supply of each item, which I really like because then you know you’re not going to run into a lot of people with the same thing. (What can I say, I like to be unique!)
But, back to the portraits….
I have so many great options for Paige to use for her yearbook, which was the main focus of the session.
Her mom encouraged her to choose some classic sweaters and then after that, she did a more fun, ivory top. And I have to say, those are my favorites, but I love them all!
I just love this girl! Isn’t she a doll!?
I met Rachel a couple years ago when I took her family’s portraits before Christmas… and now look at her! She’s so grown up!!!
I just loved all her cute outfits that she and her mom had pulled together. With just the right shoes and just the right jewelry, any outfit looks so much more fashionable!
Rachel also brought along an entourage of friends. I thoroughly enjoyed Abby and Ashley’s company too! I can see why the three of them hang out together. I had a blast!
