Fairy Lily is five years old and a great fan of the colour pink as you can see – she chose my brightest pink dress, pink wings and pink wand (white flower crown for her hair cos you don’t want to overdo it). Five is the perfect age for the Forest as we can really enjoy sharing fairy stories and get into the fun and magic that a fairy photo shoot should be all about. Course it doesn’t hurt that she was super gorgeous too!
Every time I build the Forest, it is slightly different. I don’t work to a plan, I just do what I fancy on the build day and there are some different large props, like my toadstool, bridge and a couple of others that I alternate between. I love the fact that I never quite know how it’s going to turn out until I finish it and I have to say, I was really fond of my Forest at the last photo shoot weekend. I think it was the bridge that was my favourite part as I’ve just had it modified (for that, read I moaned at my husband until he did it for me!) and it worked so well with the pond giving me gorgeous shots of fairies admiring their reflections.
A visit to the Enchanted Forest costs £25 (or £35 for two fairy sisters) and this includes access to all my handmade dresses, props and accessories as well of course as your time in the Forest to explore and create your fairy images. A few days after your session, you will be able to view your images in your private online gallery and select your favourite to download at print quality, or you can select to order it in print format – whichever you prefer. If you’d like to buy more photos from your session, then you’re welcome to of course. There’s no secrecy or sales process with my photography, an additional digital image is £12 or it’s £50 to download everything in your gallery if you love them all too much to decide.
Dates for upcoming fairy photo shoots are going to be announced soon and you can be the first to know by registering your interest and becoming a Forest VIP. It’s just a simple form to complete and you will be the first to know when the calendar opens (before it goes public so you have time to book your perfect date and time), plus your little fairy will get a special gift to take home with her from her photo shoot.
