i heart faces – week 37

I am so excited about this week over at i heart faces! Not only am I fond of candid photos but the judge this week is my absolute favorite photographer – no lie. Rebekah Westover is absolutely amazing. From her photo locations to her perfect processing, one can’t help but be inspired by every one of her shots. If and when she ever offers a workshop (hint, hint Rebekah!!!), I am totally signing up!

For this week’s contest I chose yet another photo from a wedding. This time, however, I am entering one of the pre-wedding preparations. This little girl was  not only the flower girl but the bride’s daughter as well. When I arrived on the scene, this is how she was sitting to get her hair done. It was one of my very first shots from the day and coincidentally one of my favorites.       Getting Ready B1 for website final To see more completely candid shots or to view Rebekah’s special page, head on over to i heart faces.
