Retro Ride

It's been another busy day. We had a birthday party for my eldest. Birthday parties always wear me out! I'm ready to curl up on the couch and call it a day! The weekends are the only time now that I can do outdoor shots, so I still made time to do a photo shoot. I've had this one in my head for some time now. My dad has this really old Ford truck, and I thought it would be cool to take some pictures with it. So, I called him up this morning, and I asked him if he could get it out of the garage for me. I figured with all the Mad Men-esque outfits I've been sporting this past week that this shoot would be a great grand finale. My outfit is pretty simple, but very retro. I forgot how much I love this dress!
