There has been a sea-change inside of me lately. It started when I cut down my hours at my day job to part-time; suddenly Violet Folklore could take up a space of its own, instead of being squeezed into the margins of my days and weeks.
The first sign of the change was an almost manic obsession with my own wardrobe. If something was not perfect, it needed to leave the closet right away. If something was missing, it needed to be bought immediately. I probably did more online shopping in the past month than I had done all year!
The next sign was a very fussy, very focused obsession with taking exciting pictures. (I'm sure you all noticed something was up when I brought unicorns into the photo shoots!) Come to think of it, the dresses in the store were good, but they could be better too. I got more particular about what I bought for the store. I wanted every item to exude an absolute ton of "charm".
That's a very long preface to these pics, from my trip to Bridgeport, which is a place oozing with "charm" just down the river a bit from Grass Valley. It's home to scenic barns, the oldest covered bridge in the West, and of course the beautiful Yuba River. As I told my friend, "I want every single picture to be an amazing fairy tale!" I hope you enjoy:
Even in the country, it's hard to find the perfect Barn to take pictures in front of. This one does the trick!
