    Soo Pretty. Loving the nostalgic feel

  • Hanne With An E October 1st, 2012 11:20 PM

    Ahh so great! Were some of these taken at the San Francisco Zoo? I think I recognize that hippo! Loved #7 especially.

    • Sasha Frolova October 2nd, 2012 8:22 AM

      They are actually all taken in New York in different playgrounds near my house. Thanks!

      • Indigoblue October 2nd, 2012 4:20 PM

        These photos are absolutely amazing and completely capture the essence of my childhood and high school. Sentimental value or what?! ;-)

    Best photo set on Rookie Ever! In the words of Rod Stewart, every picture tells a story, don’t it?

  • Mustachefan October 1st, 2012 11:37 PM

    Absolutely breathtaking!!!

  • steph.anie11 October 1st, 2012 11:39 PM

    All of these are fantastic!!!

  • decemberbaby October 2nd, 2012 12:02 AM

    These are gorgeous! Wow!

    Also, I had this really deep emotional reaction to #10, because of the Lizzie McGuire t-shirt, of all things… Apparently that show meant more to me than I care to remember.

  • puffytoad October 2nd, 2012 12:14 AM

    I thought the girl in the last photo was licking a cell phone.

  • Cactus Woman October 2nd, 2012 12:57 AM

    Seriously, this whole album is fantastic. Spot-on. I don’t know if this is my #1 favorite, but it’s definitely in my top five favorite Rookie photo albums. And that’s REALLY saying something!
    Ring Pop girl is the best.

  • marineo October 2nd, 2012 1:07 AM

    the girl on the left in 11 is from supercute, isn’t she? or am i just crazy?

  • jossieann October 2nd, 2012 1:18 AM

    The Lizzie McGuire shirt is perfect.

  • Kanjii_ October 2nd, 2012 1:25 AM

  • horreure October 2nd, 2012 9:30 AM

    these are really good!

  • poison ivy October 2nd, 2012 9:46 AM

    no offense to rookie, but a lot of your photo albums have a VERY similar feel, which is beautiful of course. I like this album because its still rookie-ish, but a little different. I’ll remember this one Sasha, really great! I love the b&w because it’s kinda old feeling. great! Love number 2. Please send more!

  • ShakespeareRules October 2nd, 2012 10:40 AM

    I love these photos, I completely understand what you mean about how we never really get old. 4 and 10 are brilliant.
    And btw, is that Supercute! I see?

  • Microbyte1 October 2nd, 2012 10:41 AM

    i love it ! the pictures are beautiful !

  • Miarele October 2nd, 2012 10:52 AM

    Also, am I the only one that immediately reminded of Rayanne seeing those candy necklace things? haha

  • Ella W October 2nd, 2012 11:45 AM

  • RhiaSnape October 2nd, 2012 12:59 PM

    These are so awesome, especially love the styling in the last few ones – those dungarees(overalls) look so good

  • Rachel Z October 2nd, 2012 1:43 PM

    these are stunning and probably my favorite photo set since reading rookie.

  • ellajean October 2nd, 2012 2:04 PM

  • WitchesRave October 2nd, 2012 2:36 PM

  • shelley October 2nd, 2012 3:29 PM

    these are just perfect, wish I could make something this beautiful

  • Resh October 2nd, 2012 4:18 PM

    The first girl has a little excess of hair lenght right? Or is it just my impression?
    P.S.:Loved the hippo, gotta get one for my backyard :)

  • Tambourelle October 2nd, 2012 4:54 PM

    These photos are gorgeous! I am obsessed with the whole ‘changes and similarities’ between childhood and adolescence (literally obsessed). And I love how Rookie mag often mentions it!

    • Tambourelle October 2nd, 2012 4:58 PM

      * my tumblr sort of has these vibes

  • Josefina October 3rd, 2012 8:18 PM

    That picture of the girl with the braid being pulled is excellent! It looks like an actual vintage picture. These are excellent, everything from the concept to the artistry with which these are staged.

    • Josefina October 3rd, 2012 8:19 PM

      Also, these are super accurately nineties and that makes me love these even more.

  • Sea goddess October 3rd, 2012 10:43 PM

    Ah these pics are rad!!! I loved the colors I loved loved loved loved them..and it’s so interesting that even if the pics are childhood based they are not in color, but in b&w, like a mature kind of thing…awesome pics!

  • Snacky Onassis October 4th, 2012 2:12 AM

    Very “Lick the Star” feel. Awesome.
