RACHEL


On a cold, blustery Wednesday in February, Rachel and I popped over to a local salon to get Rachel's ears pierced for the first time.  While I took photos, she endured the pain of the piercing.  But in the end, we both succeeded in our duties - Rachel had her ears pierced and I had a few lovely photos!  

Do you have a favorite photo from this selection of photographs?

  1. I remember getting my ears pierced for the first time. So much excitement & nerves all in one, but so much fun too.

  2. I remember getting my ears pierced too. :) It was a little scary, but I think I have a high pain-tolerance. Still, the nerves are something to remember. ;) Lovely pictures, Acacia! That is so exciting! :)

  8. Sitting in the chair, waiting to get my ears pierced is a moment I won't ever forget. The feeling of nervousness and excitement makes the wait feel so long. I had to get them done a couple times because mine closed up. I've had them pierced for several years now. It's nice being able to add earrings to make an outfit just right. :)

  11. Ahh, so fun! What a great idea to go along and document the memory (if not slightly traumatic ;)). Ha ha, I got my ears pierced when I was twelve or so, and although it didn't hurt too badly, I had a mini-meltdown.
    I really like number four. B+W is just breathtaking.

    I'm excited for your email and letter! *happy dance*

  12. ahh.. she looks so calm. I want to pierce my ears eventually. But it freaks me out to think of something going through my ear. *shivers* I love the touch earrings can bring to a person's outfit though.... gorgeous photos, dearie!

  13. I like the first and #4 best. =)
    She's quite brave to let you document the whole thing!
    I was more suprised by the click of the ear-piercer than by any pain!

  14. Oh gosh, these pictures are making me anxious because I have to re-pierce one of my ears after it closed (which how does that happen after 12+ years? ha
