here are a few from the hairdresser.
Rachael has very long, heavy hair. The process behind even the subtle look she wanted was pretty extensive, in an attempt to get it to hold up for as long as possible before falling out.
The hairdresser even had her come back later so the curls could stay pinned until the last minute. She is right at the end of our block, and when she saw us out taking pictures later, come running down to see the full effect. She told Rachael she was ready for the red carpet. Ironically, outside the venue for the prom, there was an actual red carpet, and a photographer taking shots as they arrived!
(my apologies to the lady in the back waiting for her color to develop...)
Beautiful flowers! okay so I 'm captioning like crazy...so shoot me...
The dress! And Rachael's cute look.
Michael's sister and family came to take some pictures too.
Their baby is adorable! Malaika didn't want to let her go.
on the way
...and most importantly, they had a good time.
Oh my, my #5 is going to college. This must mean something about my age....not sure what....
