Best Shot Monday- Mama's White Skirt

I wore a long white skirt to work last week. I don't wear skirts often so when I do my daughter is the first to smother me in compliments. "Oh, mommy what a pretty outfit. You look beautiful." As I was undressing after work, my daughter immediately capitalized on the opportunity to seize my skirt. I could see her little mind reeling. "Can I wear it mommy?" she said. Followed by, "This could be my wedding dress." I fashioned it on her the best I could and she was off. Ready for the ball.

Lucky for me she was bouncing around the room and landed in the chair right by the window. The lighting was perfect and she was kind of still for a minute.

I am choosing this one as my best shot.

Head on over to Tracey's to see some more great shots.

Oh Jen,

These shots are just so lovely. Wow. I love the first and the last one the most. But the middle one is beautiful too.

These are wonderful. Little girls in their mommy's clothes are always perfect times to take pictures. The fact that you got natural light from the window makes it all that more perfect. And yes, they shold all be framed as a collection. I agree, the last shot is the BEST! Just wonderful!

Oh, that last shot is simply lovely.

Absolutely adorable! I love that last shot with her hands thrown up over her head and that series look as she gazes at the camera. I think you can almost see the adult in her peeking out.

Mine isn't quite as pretty as yours, as my boy found Daddy's socks and had us all in stitches last night. ;)

Christina said...

Oh, this is gorgeous - both the story behind it, and the images themselves. She is such a little beauty, and you captured the moment so well. Awesome light. Frame them!!!

P.S. A WHITE skirt? You are brave! ;)

simply beautiful. the lighting was so perfect...I also totally dig the is it Elmo? sticker on her hand.

I used to wear my moms skirts as dresses, too. Thanks for the walk down memory lane :)

Megan said...

Gorgeous photos. My youngest loves to dress up in my clothes too. She also sneaks into my bathroom and puts on my makeup whenever she thinks I'm not looking. :)

May I ask which camera you're using?

Jen said...

Vered- I have a Nikon D60.

Dawn said...

All of them are fantastic!

Nothin' better than dressing up in mommy's clothes!

Too cute~

These are absolutely beautiful, so true to childhood. I love that she wants to be grownup is Mama's clothes but still has a sticker on her hand.

Phyllis Sommer said...

Jaimee said...

Jen, those are stunning!! I think the first one is my fav! Perfect lighting..perfect shots!

Stacy said...

I love that last one! Great shot! She is so pretty and little kids in white is one of my favorite things ever.

We are the opposite on skirts, though. I rarely wear anything but skirts to work. :)
