Sincerely, Niklaas

So, I'm not Maggie, it's Niklaas again, and I'm guest posting so that Maggie has a chance to settle back into the whole college life. And since I don't have anything else to do, I figured I would do this one. So, in the outfit that Maggie has on in these photos was picked out from me; everything from the oxfords to the cardigan. You might remember this location from a shoot we did last summer, and we revisited it for good reason: it's an excellent location. Except for the day we shot these, of course. The day we went out to shoot these, Idaho was having another of its bipolar winter days. It went from wind, to rain, to sleet, to sun, to more clouds. And as I'm sure you can tell from these pictures, we were in the middle of cloud-sun-wind weather. To be honest, I'm not totally happy with these pictures. Because of the cloud-sun-wind, Maggie was moving all over the place (so was I), so a lot of these didn't end up the way I'd like them to, but so it goes, eh?

So, I've got news, which directly affects Maggie too! I've been accepted to college (thank Jesus), so it looks like the both of us will be in the same place for next school year. Not only will this contribute to my overall happiness, but that also means that I'll be able to take most (if not all) of the pictures for Maggie next year, which excites me a lot, to be honest.

Bummer about the weather being difficult because her outfit is super cute! I still think the pictures turned out pretty good though!

P.S. You have no idea how similar you and I are. (Maggey, not Niklaas- sorry!) My sister and I quote Gilmore Girls all the time. We even got our mom hooked so she recognizes the episodes we're talking about too! Hahaha. Too bad you live across the country cause I would totally suggest a Gilmore Girls marathon :)
