That colour is lovely on Clara. As it's cranberry, does this mean it's a Thanksgiving dress? See Anna, you are giving this Aussie some American culture. :)

So beautiful! I can't stop imagining the photos as Impressionist paintings. :-)

I love this style. Love the sleeves and the collar and the fullness of the skirt. So pretty on Clara.

Clara always has such a sweet & pensive look...one of your commenters used the words "impressionist painting". I think that's fitting. :o)
