Welcome

Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

My Baby Girl is Wearing My Prom Dress!

Hannah and I had so much fun tonight!  I had a photo shoot that I've been dreaming about for a while.  My dream involved my baby girl and my prom dress made by by mother in 1988!  I've been carefully saving my gorgeous, one-of-a-kind, designed by my precious mother, prom dress in the back of my closet and hoping for a special day to get it out and play a little dress up.

My prom dress fit Hannah perfectly!  {Sigh!} I was once this size too!

Hannah looked GORGEOUS in my dress.  I added my pearls and Hannah added her sense of style...her favorite cowboy boots.  Perfect!  I grabbed my camera, we hopped in the car, and found a really cool place for special photos.

(On a side-note, I am entering one of these photos in a photography competition.  The theme is "pastels."  Which one would you choose???? PLEASE, leave me a comment and let me know your fave.  I love them all, but that's probably not due to my photography skills but due to the fact that my baby girl is in every one of them!.  So, pretty-please-with-sugar-on-top, help a girl out and leave me a comment! PLEASE! ) 

Ready?  Okay, here they are in no particular order:  Hannah wearing my prom dress.

Whew!  I only have 140 more pictures.  Aren't you glad I narrowed it down to 7?!

 I can't wait to see what your top choices are.  Thanks for helping me out.  Blessings to you!!!

Oh my gosh, Kristi, these pictures are amazing! #s 3, 6 and 7 are my favorites, but I cannot make up my mind about which one in particular! I love them all!

I can't EVEN choose, they are all so beautiful! When I saw them it reminded me of the covers of these historical fiction books I read with the field and barn in the background.

#1 grabs me because of her expression and I like seeing the boots.

They are all great! I can see why you'd have trouble choosing which one to enter.

I gotta say #1 - just love the colors & the angle she is looking away. It's just peaceful & serene......

Jaunna said...

These are breathtaking! It was a hard choice between number 4 and 1, but I just kept coming back to number 1 because it was so beautiful!

These are absolutly fabulous photos! The dress is a gorgeous color! And the lady is just as sweet, I am sure!

Erica said...

What a neat idea. I say #1, although they are all beautiful.

Susan said...

These are all stunning! Gorgoeus girl and I love that dress mom!!

Hope you all doing OK!

Miss you♥

Your daughter is beautiful are your photography is stunning. All the photos are lovely but for me that last shot is a winner, just that expression and the setting with a less colorful background makes that dress really pop too.

Love these shots. A gorgeous mix of texture, grunge, and beauty!
