Tea Party





Tuesday, I ran in to Village Press in Mountain Brook Village to buy some cards. They have a terrific selection of cards, invitations, and stationery, not to mention a helpful and friendly staff. What a pleasant surprise to find that they were having a tea party for their patrons. My cute little friend Elizabeth, was having a grand time sampling the pink lemonade and cookies while her mom was shopping! I was able to talk her into just one more cookie so I could take her picture.

Does the word "patrons" mean "customers" here? It's funny because in French, "le patron" is "the boss"!
Lovely B&W.

Beautiful captures... They could be vintage images.

Bet it didn't take too much persuasion on your part.

I bet that extra cookie was a hard sell.

Transformed in sepia, this picture could be a beautiful vintage card...

Virg, you need to set up shop. No one captures kids the way you do.

jusdealem said...

Aww, she's adorable. Great shots. :)

Virginia said...

Fish,
I thought you and Judy would like seeing your cutie patootie today!

AH,
Ahhh, REAL children's photography is a really hard way to make a living. I like just catching them being cute!

jusdealem,
Thanks for leaving a comment and for stopping by.

Jacob said...

My dear V: I'd recommend that you seriously look at doing some work as a professional children's photographer...you have a gift, a rare gift!

These are precious and priceless!

If you keep posting these cute kids you're gonna make me start sending daily emails to my daughter, 33 on Saturday, and son in law telling them if they don't get going on the grandchildren thing they're cut out of the will.

BTW, I'd be delighted to have a phone chat about lenses, shooting in RAW, etc. I'm in Chicago Friday and Saturday on business but we could work something out before our departure to the Asian outback.

Snap and I had a nice long chat today. I'd love to share our thoughts with you before you head out to the wild blue yonder! I may be wrong, but think you two are ganging up on moi! HA Well bring it on! I want to chat before you leave.

Birmingham has more picture perfect children than anywhere else...or you make it seem so. Lovely.

Nathalie said...

I had to chuckle at Bob's comment.
Those children shots are definitely what you're best at. They're pure eye candy!

I was away for about 10 days, enjoying a cool holiday with my daughter in Brittany (getting away from the heat was a nice respite). Just back today and catching up. Thanks for your visits to Avignon and lovely comments!

When I look at this in B and W it reminds me of when I was a child. My hair was dressed just like this with a bow! Beautiful shots of a beautiful child.
