As you will see everything about this session is just mind blowingly gorgeous with stunning dresses and amazing ballet themed make up. We even had some feathery themed stationery!

The little leaky row boat made one of my fantasies of the past two years come true accompanied by an abundance of fresh flowers and even the bad weather could not get us down as it created the exact dreamy effect I wanted for some fantastic images.
