Today is the day we are finally able to share a little (ok, BIG) secret we have kept from a fellow blogger whom we admire and adore. Celina, from Petit à Petit and Family is someone whose style, skill, and aesthetic has taking the blogging world by storm, and on a personal level, has amazed me ever since I came upon her blog a couple years ago.
When asked if I would participate in this series, which honours Celina's style, I knew exactly what I'd like to do. In December, I was so enthralled by the outstanding Nutcracker outfits she made for her children to wear on Christmas Eve. The colours, the photography, the props, and of course, the designs themselves, all left me so inspired. And then there was the Circus post, so artistically modelled by her daughter. I really wanted to capture some of the mood and energy of those photos. Having a little ballerina of my own, I knew that I would have to create something reminiscent of her favourite Tchaikovsky ballet: Swan Lake. Anja was so thrilled and eager to have her own input into this idea, and insisted that the video of the Swan Lake Theme play while I photographed her (can you tell she's watching it off camera?). This was one photo shoot she was genuinely and completely excited about!
So, without further ado, here's my take on What Would Celina Do...
Ballet Sweater: Heidi & Finn
Bodysuit & Ballet Slippers: from ballerina's wardrobe :)
There's so much more to see and enjoy (click on the images)!
