Sonora Wedding Photography | Hopefully Romantic Dresses | Christine Dibble Photography

One of the perks of having a slow season around the start of the year is having the time to do some fun shoots. I recently did one for Hopefully Romantic to show off a couple of her newest creations…gorgeous handcrafted wedding dresses! Katherine makes some incredible pieces, and her new addition of dresses to her line will be a hit. She even made the beautiful pair of shoes! I felt like I was following Cinderella around the yard as we followed the setting sun and captured the romance of all these beautiful pieces. Hopefully Romantic carries everything from wedding dresses and flower girl and baptism dresses to wedding and pregnancy belly sashes and accessories such as shoes, baskets, ring pillows, jewelry, and hair pieces. Every piece incorporates vintage linens, lace or findings to be truly unique. If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind heirloom piece for a wedding, baby or just for fun, check out her ETSY store!

Sonora Senior Model Photographer | Miss Hannah’s Modeling Portfolio | Christine Dibble Photography

I first met Hannah when she was two years old. She was tall even then. And headstrong. Flash forward a few years, and she is in high school but looks 25! When her mom asked about putting together a modeling portfolio, I jumped at the chance. Who wouldn’t want to work with such a beautiful girl! For once there was an upside to the crazy warm weather we have been having here because we hung around outside for the whole afternoon, changing clothes, hair and make-up, and she never had to complain about being cold. She borrowed outfits from Runway Xchange consignment and Tar Flat Antiques. Her favorite was the Free People dress, but I think she rocked everything she wore! And that serious look…she has it down!Sonora, CA senior model photographer Christine Dibble takes outdoor modeling photos of a teenage girl for a modeling portfolio while she wears a gold tank and cape and jeans in Tuolumne.

Sonora Child and Elsa Photographer | Elsa and Lucy | Christine Dibble Photography

My little friend Lucy is a huge Elsa fan. I mean HUGE! So when we heard Elsa was going to be in Sonora a few days before Christmas, we knew we had to set up a private meeting for her biggest fan. Really…this was way better than Santa Claus in Lucy’s opinion! We met Elsa at a private location. The day had started out beautifully bright and sunny, but she brought along the gray skies and snow. After a few lessons, Lucy was just as adept at throwing snow around as her idol. Elsa sat and talked about everything going on in Arendelle and with Anna. Lucy asked lots of questions. Then Elsa brought out a gift for Lucy…a story book about herself called A Sister More Like Me, signed by the author, Barbara Jean Hicks! She sat and read the book to Lucy who snuggled right up next to her to listen. Then Elsa zipped off to a public meet and greet. If you are lucky enough to live in Washington, you have access to Elsa for birthday parties through Crown and Cake. She will show up (or any other Disney princess) with amazing gourmet cupcakes and entertain little princesses with stories and crafts and conversation. But she books up quickly, so get your reservations in!
