My Sweet 20th

I remember when I turned sixteen. I felt like I had to grow up and become responsible. When I turned 18 I was pretty scared about getting my drivers lisence and going to college. Can’t believe that’s already two years ago. Today I turn 20. No biggie. What I expect from this year? I expect it to be awesome. I expect to start photography classes and grow this crazy hobby into a more professional thing. I expect to fly across the pond and have an amazing time exploring America. I expect to meet new friends, maybe even through this blog. I expect this blog to grow and to become an even bigger part of my life. But my sixteen year old self already knew that not everything lays in your hands. 
I haven’t planned to celebrate this event big time. But my friend J and I did go out for a special birthday shoot over the weekend. I have an overload of photos to share today so I hope you enjoy them!

    Happy Late birthday!

    I turned 21 this year and it was nuts. Not nuts because I was on-the-floor-wasted, but nuts because I feel like time is going way too quickly and deep down I am just an old woman haha. It's to weird to remember how it seems like just a little bit ago I was also turning 16.

    Time flys, I guess they say 😉

  33. 26 April 2012 / 17:31

    I love the neutral palette! that dress is beautiful!

  34. 26 April 2012 / 17:31
