Psynopsis Sarah Night Shot

I've been wanting to photograph Sarah wearing this skirt forever – I love its preppyness and how it hugs the curves in all the right places - but these days we only see each other when the sun has set (the blurry-eyed minutes in the mornings when we grabble for coffee and mumble train times at each other don't count). Hence she had to pose in the dark…

She does look like you, gorgeous looks, great hair and a killer bod! She should be very proud of such fabulous genes.

I think the "dark" complements the skirt and the photos! I still can't wrap my head around the fact that you have a beautiful, grown daughter!

Veshoevius said...

Great night shots, a nice grittiness to them - is Sarah your sister?
I love the skirt and the shoes.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Aaah, Veshoevius... Thank you so much! Nah, she's my daughter (naturally I'm inclined to say it was a very early teenage pregnancy).

looks stunning!!

Ashley said...

I love the skirt! Great job with the pictures, too. I haven't quite figured out how to take decent portraits at night, so I just avoid it entirely.

Jen said...

Love this skirt - so flattering! I love the book too (His Dark Materials). It's one of my absolute favourites. x

SabinePsynopsis said...

Ediot - Yeap, the skirt was also available in camel - a version that was very ubiquitous in London.

Ashley - I'm so happy you say this! Taking pictures in the dark (without flash, which just destroys everything) was more difficult than I had anticipated.

Anna said...

She looks great!
Love that total black outfit and the lighting.

I love the skirt! She looks lovely

Haute World said...

I had a skirt like that when I was Sarah's age (why do I feel ancient saying that?). It's nice to see that the style is still around/coming back. I do love the lighting in this...gives it a romantic and soft feel.
