There are moments when unplanned things arise and sometimes you like the unplanned better than the planned. As Darlina was expertly curling and clipping Alex's hair, I was telling her how I had always wanted to photograph somebody with their hair just like that. Darlina just looked at me and basically said, "Well, why don't you then?" So we did.
I had ebay'd this vintage Laros nightgown and peignoir set a couple of months back after seeing the same pair online elsewhere, so I was quite happy to finally photograph it. I have a fairly large collection of vintage nightgowns from the 40s-60s, and they're pieces that just make me smile in the biggest way. They bring to mind, for me, so many conflicting but intriguing qualities: mystery, innocence, and sensuality.
