Sharing something other than newborn photography today. For over a year I have been following the work of Heather from Fairyography. She amazes me. Every session is sweet. She has magic powers as far as I am concerned. I don’t think I have ever know someone so creative. And she has a heart of gold too. Last year she asked if I wanted to be part of a Cinderella collaboration. I wanted to badly, but I let my fear of trying something new own me. Watching those portraits come out my heart sank. I should have tried. But I was intimidated. This year with a theme like “Fairy” (I am crazy about fairy lore) I had to be brave. I stressed for months about it. I had so many wonderful ideas.
In the end I suffered from procrastination and indecision. I wanted to create something so stunning. I had ideas about driving to gorgeous locations in Oregon and the Hoh rain forest here in Washington. Life always gets to busy! So on the day before I left town I ran to Michaels, bought lots of pretty things and went to work. I wish I had hired a hair and make up artist. But this is what an hour of throwing together a costume looks like. I figured I wanted her to look a little wild so it was OK that we were winging it, lol.
On my bucket list I have fairy portraits with the great Heather of Fairyography. But for now the girls have to make due with Mom. This is Kate, my second daughter. She is 9 and this IS “her”. She is wild and sweet. She is a free spirit. A deeply thinking artist. She loves animals with a protective spirit that I have never seen in another child. I love her.
Check out the other amazing work from the artists that participated in this collaboration.
