Meet Kristen and her adorable daughter Gwen. I met this lovely New Lenox family a few years ago when we moved into our neighborhood and we have been friends ever since. When Ele Story mentioned they needed a little girl and mama, I immediately thought of them for this casting call. These two braved the cold for this session to model these gorgeous Ele Story dresses for me. It was a brisk 35 degrees this evening but they did an amazing job cuddling to keep warm.
These Little Gem dresses are feminine and pretty and perfect for spring and summer. You can see more of the images of this session and order these beautiful dresses here!
Ele Story describes the dress and says “The silhouette harkens back to past decades. Bell-shaped cap sleeves are not only flattering for us women, but the ruffled design and the hemlines echo the ruffles of the children’s dresses, and add a bit of childlike playfulness to the design. Its softness and adjustable waist sashes easily make this the most comfortable dress in your wardrobe this season. Not to mention the slip made of buttery, silky rayon/spandex – it is literally so soft you might want to sleep in it.”
