Personal :: My grandmother’s engagement photo

April 11, 2013

A photo vignette of my grandmother. The above framed photo is her engagement portrait. Back in the day  a woman was photographed independently of her fiancé when engaged. Isn’t she beautiful? And the book, Evangeline, has been in the family for years – my great grandmother gave it to my grandmother and then she passed it down to me. The book (in poem format) follows an Acadian girl named Evangeline and her search for her lost love Gabriel. I still haven’t read this (sounds a bit sad) but perhaps one day I’ll pop open these old, delicate pages and read this love story.



Meggy – I am wondering if you use a flash when inisde? What if you go somewhere and they do not have enough natural light I recently tried to do a shoot inisde but there was not enough light and I went to use my external flash, however, daddy wouldnt let me, even when baby was asleep. Have you ever had this issue, what lense do you use in order to let in enough light??Thanks, this is a great post!May 8, 2011 8:54 pm
