Formalities of the Year 12 Formal – 2016

3 responses

These two photos were taken in 2003 – on Bronte’s first day at Primary School. The first photo (although blurry) shows her at home just about to leave. The 2nd photo shows her all happy and dishevelled when I was there to pick her up. She is 5 in these photos.

Fast forward twelve years and she has just started her final year of secondary school – Year 12, VCE.

The first thing to focus on this year was the Year 12 Formal. One of the great things about the school she goes to….they get the Formal out of the way – very fast. They started back at school on the 29th of January and Formal was done and dusted on the 7th of February!

The buildup to the Formal is a slow burn. Planning began mid 2015. There is just so much to organise. Who knew? Not me. Having had two brothers before her – let’s just say – boys and Formals are a breeze and very cheap!

Things to organise:

Dress
Special Underwear
Shoes
Clutch
Hair
Makeup
Spray Tan
Nails
Buttonhole or Boutonnière for the partner
Tickets to Formal
Tickets to After Party
Outfit for After Party
Pres – is that a word?
Transportation for 20 – Stretch Hummer

and I am sure there is more that I have forgotten.

Here’s some pictures for you. Of course, she doesn’t like any of them but that’s the nature of the beast!

A random set of images from the last few weeks…

This first one is taken at Green’s Point, Brighton. For this, I used my phone, a Nokia Lumia1020. Taken just after a storm, you can see the Melbourne City Skyline in the distance and the famous Brighton Beach huts to the right.

This image is taken with my Canon 5D MkII – my DSLR. Here I am at Half Moon Bay, Black Rock and this image shows HMVS Cerberus, some yachts in the very distance and of course, Johnathon Livingston Seagull!

This shows Finn down at Sandringham beach – digging a big hole after his swim.

A couple of weekends ago, I popped into the Queen Victorian Market here in Melbourne. The next three images are from there – taken with my Fujifilm x100
