Cambrie In Mom-Mom's Dress

While watching our sweet, baby granddaughter, Cambrie the other day, I dressed her in the Christening dress that belonged to me. Then I made a picture to look like an old cabinet photo.




Irresistibly hug-able, this little one is 6 weeks old already!
Here I am wearing the dress as my Godmother holds me in the bright sun.

I am participating in Sepia Scenes for the first time with the photos below. They were take in low light and because of the surrounding color and lighting they appear sepia.

What a special treasure to have something you wore - and then your grandchild can wear. That is so neat. I love the sepia tones photos. So much history!

You're granddaughter is adorable. I agree with Valerie that is quite a treasure to share with your granddaughter. I have always been a fan of sepia and your photos are absolutely stunning.

Your photography is always a treat, especially when you capture your family members in such lovely poses. Little Cambrie looks so adorable in your beautiful gown, and doing the photos in sepia is a gracious touch. I always look forward to your posts, as they live up to your blog title.

I love your new/old cabinet card. What a great idea. Cambrie is such a beautiful baby ~ her eyes are so pretty. The black & white photo of the two of you is wonderful.

I never heard of the Sepia Scenes blog - that might be fun to join in on. Your scenes would be so nice for notecards.
I really like notecards made out of personal photographs. Last year I took pictures of my friends' pets and made them into notecards. Then I packaged them up and gave them as their Christmas gifts.

Cambrie is just beautiful in your gown - what an absolute treasure to have that to share with her. The sepia pics would be stunning as framed art or notecards. You are truly talented and it's such a joy to visit.

Loved visiting your sentimental post. I have the Christening dress my mother wore, and her Father also wore framed and hanging in my Living Room. I wanted to preserve it,it was so delicate and worn...
Thanks for sharing!
