My 18th Birthday Photoshoot!

Hey guys! Today is my 18th birthday, and as always, I wanted to do a fun photoshoot! I don’t post outfits as much as I used to, and sometimes it’s fun to take a break from all the articles! (Which I love doing too. XD)

I actually wore two different dresses because that’s how indecisive I am. XD Here is the first outfit! 

I love looking at Pinterest for picture inspiration! One idea was to take 18th birthday or graduation pictures with an old baby picture. I thought it was a cute idea! So my mom pulled this old picture out of the closet and it turned into a prop for these pictures. : ) 

I absolutely love this dress that my sister recently bought on Amazon. It’s super comfortable AND it has pockets. : D Here are a few pictures taken with Maddy’s camera! I think they have a vintage feel to them with the lighting and picture frame.

Moving on to the second dress! I recently got this dress while birthday shopping at Ross. (They have great deals!) I love how it’s summery and casual and can be dressed up or down. 

And of course, balloons! Last year I did a birthday photoshoot with a Tangled balloon bouquet, and that was super fun. (I left the pointe shoes off this time!😉) 

I’m super excited to see what this year holds! I have lots planned especially for the next couple of months, and I’m excited to see where God takes me on this journey! 

Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting!

  6. Happy 18th birthday, Melani!
    Wish ya all the best!
    You are a wonderful girl, inside and out, that’s just my opinion.
    You are an adult now, so I think you feel something different at this anniversary.
    P. S.: I love your hair(/-style) and your dresses are really pretty, esspecially because they have stripes. :))))
    Happy anniversary! xx


  7. Happy birthday Melani! Love the outfits and the baby photo idea is GENIUS. I might need to try that (in like five years, lol).

    Hey, I wanted to ask you a question. I know it’s your b-day and you don’t want to think about blogging AT ALL but when you get a chance, maybe you could do a practical summer modesty type post. Like “wear this not that” to show us how to dress for the summer, at the beach, at the pool, and at the amusement park, for example. Since you’re so wise 😉

    Idk, just an idea! Thanks, and Happy 18th!

    1. Thanks, Zella! You totally should! 😉

      I think a summer modesty post is a great idea! I have a few posts I’m planning to write in the next couple weeks, but after that, I’ll definitely try to get on a modesty post!

      Many blessings! ❤️

  10. I’m late, but happiest of birthdays! I absolutely love the idea of a birthday photo shoot (I think you inspired me…maybe I’ll do one for my 19th birthday next month!) and these pictures came out so good!

    I absolutely love the first dress– the black and white striped one. It is so pretty and really looks gorgeous on you! Thanks for sharing. ❤


  11. I can’t believe I missed this post! Happy belated birthday — I hope it was AMAZING! The pictures look absolutely beautiful, and so do you! Here’s to many more years of being the awesomely God-glorifying, inspiring woman you are. 😊
