a thriftful photo shoot...

my cousin brittani asked if i would take a few pictures of her for her senior photo's.

so we headed to goodwill to see if there were treasures awaiting us there.
i found this old picnic basket...it just needed a little spray paint and...


it was perfect in these photo's to give them a little pop of color.


we also found that purple pencil skirt...it is too cute on her!


not to mention that pretty little pocket watch necklace that brittani snatched up at goodwill as well...



brittani's eyes are the most amazing color!


here are two vintage hats i found at a garage sale for $2 a piece.


i love this brown one...



here is that locket again!  love it!


we has such a blast taking these photo's.
thanks to my sister emily and cousin bailee who helped babysit while we romped around in the woods and open fields to take these pictures.

goodwill has treasures that are just waiting to be found.
it's a perfect place to get stuff that is inexpensive for fun photo shoots!

have a great weekend guys!

Totally love this! We got a basket like that for our wedding -- I wonder if I still have it or if I gave it to DI. It looks adorable in color! All the other finds were fantastic, too. Great photos!

I lOVE the photos! I've been wanting to do a photoshoot like that, but it's been too cold.

I hadn't thought of spray painting a picnic basket...I have one like that and I might have to give it a try.
