Toddler wedding dress portrait session

A photo shoot with my toddler in my wedding dress

Six years ago, I found the perfect ivory lace wedding dress off the rack at a bridal shop in Nashville, Tennessee. No alterations were needed and I was thankful since I desperately wanted a fall wedding. I had only 3 months to plan.

If you would have told me 6 years ago that my almost four year old would be wearing my dress for some photos, my jaw would have dropped to the floor. It’s insane how fast time flies. I can’t believe she will be four in October. I can’t believe I will have been married for 6 years in October.


She has been viewing my wedding photos around the house lately and requested to see my wedding dress.I finally pulled it out for her to see and she wanted to try it on. So, I put it on her and asked if I could take a photo. She said yes and asked for the jewelry from the photo, too. She then wanted to take photos outside. As a former photographer, I was game.

She was very into posing for the pictures. I didn’t have to tell her what to do. She said she felt like a princess in the gown and loved every minute of it. I think I’ll use these photos some day at her wedding reception!

She is absolute perfection!

I was happy that she wanted me to take the photos and I will treasure them forever. I love our time together.
