Joy Newell's Breath of Life

untitled5

Quite a while back I saved the above image to my "favorite photos" folder on my computer. Then I promptly forgot where I found it. I think I even used it in one of my photo collages but didn't know who to credit. So imagine my surprise when I discovered Joy Newell's Breath of Life photography and there it was! I was so happy to finally know who had taken this lovely photo. I'm always a sucker for photos of pretty girls in pretty dresses in sunlit fields.

Then, of course, it shouldn't have been much of a surprise to discover a wealth of photographs just as lovely; softly lit girls in pretty dresses lying in fields or surrounded by flowers. As if the photos themselves weren't enough, they're made all the more impressive considering the talent that shot them is a seventeen year old young woman.

Wanted to let you know that I came across your blog last night after a quick "vintage" search and I'm so, so pleased that I found this! Totally enamored with the whole look--and I think you have really excellent taste. Love the photog and the styling!

Sorry for being a party pooper, but gee that first girl's knees are filthy.

I'm not really a fan of those pictures everyone takes, those urban outfitters catalog pictures of girls in dresses in fields, etc., but these are quite pretty. I like the one of the girl on the ground. The angle makes it interesting.
