florals for spring, how groundbreaking

When driving a friend home last weekend, I came upon this gorgeous, completely picturesque neighborhood complete with tons of cherry trees blossoming, bright green grass, picket fences, tulips gardens, and adorable children riding tricycles on the sidewalk. It's in a part of downtown where hardly any college students live, which makes perfect sense. I knew I wanted to take some of my grad photos there, before all the blossoms fall off!  

I went with a simple spring dress, because sometimes simplicity just works. And part of me wanted to match my environment...maybe I've been reading too much Selective Potential? Either way, I'm happy with this set. Think any of these are the one for my grad announcements? Holla at me! 
Spring, thank you for being here. I couldn't be happier to see you.

I love the third pic up from the bottom where you have your hand on your hip - I think that would be perfect! You could even pair it with the last one where the blossoms are blowing and do a great cheesy line like "I can't wait to see where the wind takes me".

:) These are beautiful photos, love the outfit you chose and the background is perfect!

Beautiful photos! So funny story, where you at the liquor store on Lakeway yesterday? My boyfriend and I went in there to get boxes for moving, and I only saw the back of your head until you were leaving, but at that point I felt too awkward following you to your car, haha.

These are beautiful shots, and I love the sundress! I am partial to the very last picture: it has an element of whimsy that I love.

I'm sorry, I'm going to be no help with picking the photo for your grad announcement. I love all three sets!!! My favourite photo from this set is the last one.
