My daughter and I had some fun on this theme shoot in the beautiful marshes of Essex, MA. Autumn turns the marsh grass a pretty rust color and provided a good backdrop. In this scene she is leaving home for the first time and setting out, unsure of what lies ahead for her but ready to take on the world! I found the 1940’s dress on Etsy and the vintage suitcase in a thrift shop. The handkerchief clutched in her hand is ready to wipe a stray tear from her eye.
