"I was born at dawn
Baptized in dew
Happy and in love
In the rays of the sun."
The beautiful song by Francoise Hardy "Mon Amie la Rose"
was the inspiration behind our shoot.
Enjoy her lovely voice and gorgeous face as you listen to the song.
The dress Camilla is wearing is a dress she found when she was just twelve years old. I had taken her vintage shopping for the first time to some great shops on Melrose and to the Fairfax flea market. I told her to just look around and if she saw something that spoke to her, grab it. She came up to me after just the first shop and showed me this dress saying "look at this!"
I knew I had found my vintage shopping buddy.
She had the eye and without any training. My first though was "Brilliant!"
We paired it with the Jeffery Campbell boots I had bought at the LF "sale of the season" last fall and some jewelry from India that her dad brought back. Then headed to our favorite locale that Emmett discovered and shot these photos.
