At the end of the last year I had the opportunity to do a photo shoot at The Purple Goose, Alexandria’s premier children’s clothing store, located in the heart of Del Ray, Alexandria Va. If you live in Alexandria, I’m sure you’ve been in the store. The staff is extremely friendly. All. The. Time! I go there because not only do they have clothes you can’t find anywhere else but for their great customer service and always lively conversation with staff. By luck one day I was chatting with Linda, one of the owners, and discovered that their photographer had moved out of town. And talk about being at the right place at the right time, we ended up coming together to create the first ever Purple Goose Holiday Collection series. As you can see from the images below, they had the most amazing holiday dresses for little girls with the frills and the texture and matching jackets, we just had show them off! Those of you with little girls can relate to my oohs and ahhs, and I may have squealed at the pink frilly numbers. But I digress. Today I wanted to share even more Purple Goose good news! I am the official photographer for The Purple Goose and we’re teaming up for a pretty spectacular spring project.
