trash the dress beach photos

Sun, sand and sassy sisters ~ simply stunning!

These photos were taken a year ago when my son Shawn, his wife Nicole and Emolyn & Elsie were vacationing with Nicole's family in Mexico.

I had found these gauzy dresses at thrift stores for a photo shoot I stylized for them ~ just for fun. The shoot took place in April '11 at the base of South Mountain in Phoenix ~ 
you can see those photos HERE.

Well, just before they left for Mexico I suggested a "trash the dress" photo shoot at the beach wearing those dresses. But I never thought a thing about it till months later when they gave me a beautiful photo book they had made of the stylized photo shoot at South Mountain ~ with these beach photos at the end of the book. I could not believe my eyes! What a lovely surprise! Especially because I had forgotten all about it. I was a blubbering mess. ha!
