I still think this is the sweetest thing ever. Ilia contacted me – from Russia (no lie!) – to schedule a portrait session for Alena. You see, she had seen Tatiana’s images, and apparently really wanted some herself. So, Ilia conspired behind her back to surprise her. And, while they were over here on business for a few weeks, they popped on over to Philadelphia and we played downtown a bit. Alena was as beautiful as ever, and – let me just say – a total rockstar when it came to the weather. You’d never know it from the images, but it was freeeeeeezing outside (and that’s not the Floridian in me speaking, it was really probably 30 degrees) but she didn’t let it phase her one bit. She rocked her little red dress and peacoat like no other.
Here are just a few (emphasis on a few) of my favorites from our afternoon together…
P.S. Doesn’t she have the prettiest, clearest skin ever? I still can’t get over it.
Okay, so is it just me or do these images have you angsting for Fall and cooler weather? I must admit… I was kind of over the shorts thing a month or two ago. Bring on the boots, I say! Ooh, and the apple cider. Mmmmm, apple cider.
