Joelle | Back To School | 6th Grade

First Grade | Second Grade | Third Grade | Fourth Grade | Fifth Grade

I love looking back on those old posts, and seeing how much she has grown up! It’s crazy to think that my little sister is starting 6th grade. I very clearly remember 6th grade (honestly, not the best memories ;), and it makes me wonder what memories will stick with Joelle from her own 6th grade year. 

Someone planted a huge sunflower field near our house, for the community to use as they please! It was such a sweet idea, and definitely a no brainer that it was the perfect location for Joelle’s Back To School portraits :)

She had more of an edgy / fall outfit with the sunflowers, but then she changed into this adorable tulle skirt! These are definitely my favorite picture of her ever <3 She is SUCH a model!! Seriously, if you’re a photographer, once you see these pictures I know you’ll be dying to get her in front of your lens. She is SO good.

The skirt fit in perfectly with this historic old house, and the pictures turned out amazing! Joelle, you’re the best little sister ever!! Enjoy 6th grade!!

We were in the middle of a sunflower field… Of course I got some pictures of myself ;) Not only is Joelle a model, I may have to make her my second shooter soon!! :)

Second location and outfit! We couldn’t find a shirt of hers that we liked, so I gave her one of mine and we clothes-pinned the back so it wouldn’t fall down – haha!
