{52 Dresses} Week 21 | J.Marie and LB Boutique GIVEAWAY

Congratulations Jaime and Kellie! You won {52 Dresses} Week 21! Please check your email for details.

The Skinny on Year Two of {52 Dresses}:

  • Make sure to check out {52 Dresses} Year One and the current {52 Dresses}!
  • I’m working with boutique businesses who create fabulous children’s fashions!
  • I’ll be spotlighting a different business each week; sharing their talents with you!
  • A little AWESOMENESS: I’ll be doing a G I V E A W A Y from the business every week!
  • The dresses that I photograph in the {52 Dresses} project will travel to Johannesburg, South Africa next spring and be distributed to little girls in need! It’s going to be amazing! There are currently over 60 dresses ready to be delivered!

I just LOVE this picture of Miss B! So rarely does she look at the camera and even then it’s hard to get a clear view of her eyes through her glasses. So when I capture an image like this, it just takes my breath away.

I’m so excited about this week’s sponsors of {52 Dresses}! I met both of them while living in Kodiak, Alaska and am blessed to call them friends! Both are talented designers and photographers and both attended my PRO Photography Workshop in October. I’m looking forward to seeing each of them next year when they host A Day With Amy: Photography Workshop in their hometowns! Jana is hosting in Mobile, AL in February and Lori is hosting in Dayton, OH in March!

Lori owns LB Boutique and made this gorgeous headband for Miss B! It’s stunning! In some of the pictures you’ll see a second headband she sent as well. Lori has serious style! I just love her! (If you get a chance, give her some love on her photography page!)

Jana owns J.Marie Designs and made this STUNNING dress. I was in awe when I opened it. She even sent the petticoat for Miss B to wear underneath! The details of this dress are breathtaking. The buttons up the back of the dress, the jacket, the giant bow. I cannot stand how much I love this dress!

Jana is pretty much the coolest gal ever. I’m lucky to call her friend. (If you get a chance, you should definitely check out her photography page and tell her I sent you!)

Miss B loved this dress too. She was thrilled that we did pictures in a big open field. All she wanted to do was run in circles.

I have to give a shout out to Sheelin’s Closet! She sent me the perfect socks to go with the outfit!! She always has the best stuff!!

J.Marie and LB Boutique are both generously donating the dress and headbands to be donated to little girls in need in South Africa! They will travel with the other dresses and accessories next year to Johannesburg where they will be distributed. I’m so lucky to be a part of such a wonderful group of women who are participating in {52 Dresses}!

ALSO! They are donating something for a lucky winner too! J.Marie Designs is giving away a snowman top and matching skirt or pants and LB Boutique is giving away a  headband of the winner’s choice! I’ll select two winners for this week! One will get the prize from J.Marie and the other will get the prize from LB Boutique!

nicole McKinney - Since I buy my own gifts I usually get what I want. This year I am getting a pattern for a cute jacket by Violette Fields Threads. My other gift is a Kindle Fire.

Mary - I don’t usually ask for a lot at Christmas. I usually get homemade gifts from my kids that they make at school, but the number one thing that is important to me is that all of my kids will be home and that’s huge because my oldest is in college and she’s 19 and still likes coming home to be with all her siblings. I have 9 kids and when one is gone, the house seems empty without them.
