We have been photographing Vintage Val for five years now
and I especially enjoy the Christmas shoots!
This year, it's a PINK Christmas, and as always with Vintage Val,
the vision and props fell into place.
It started with me finding a vintage white Christmas tree at the thrift store.
The tree was pre-lit and I asked at the store if I could plug it in to test the lights.
Several parts of the tree didn't light,
so I got a nice discount and stuffed the tree into my car.
I found pink Christmas lights at Walmart for $5,
and pink wrapping paper and ribbon at Hobby Lobby.
We were all set for Vintage Val to be wrapping Christmas gifts!
Val brought her pup Morty who posed so sweetly, AGAIN!
Here's Vintage Val's Pink Christmas,
(With another gift that came along...)
As I've shared before,
I always get visions for my Vintage Val shoot!
I loved the gift wrapping scene...
but, there was MORE!
While at a thrift store, I found the most gorgeous
vintage pink gown and the visions continued.
My husband bought some pink rose' wine for the shoot
and my blogger friend Terri had a vintage looking wine bottle!
(Check out Terri's great lifestyle blog and her upcoming pink Christmas at
Champagne and Grace. Her pink Christmas sparked my flow of visions!)
I love how my new gold Christmas garland on my fireplace mantel
reflects in the mirror! I saw that happening in a vision.
I am always so in AWE at what comes together for our Vintage Val
shoots and the utter beauty of Val!
Look at her in that GOWN! Perfect fit!
Enjoy every moment of your holiday season and
much love and happiness from me, Val and Morty!
