When The Measure asked if I would be interested in creating a commercial fairy shoot with her wings, and a halo provided by Maya’s Curls, I just couldn’t help myself. I had to do it! If you know my work, you’ve seen all sorts of “scenes”, so the idea of a fairy scene was thrilling! After some deep thought, I envisioned a forest star scene, which took lots of time to create… cutting out each star, hanging, and then spray painting them, but the scene came out wonderful. All the gold and glitter went well with the gorgeous fall backdrop. Annika was the perfect little fairy model, and I think she had a blast playing the role of a fairy. Do fairies dream of glitter in their sleep? Because I think she will be.

Check back this weekend for a full fall fairy session! For now here’s a sneak peek!

Wings from The Measure, and halo from Maya’s Curls. You can buy the set here, just in time for the harvest festivities!

While Georgia was visiting from Massachusetts, we thought we’d take advantage of the time, and work on some personal projects. I normally schedule sessions around that lovely golden sunset time, but had been wanting to try a sunrise session. One thing I love about fall mornings, is that enchanting fog that rolls in just before sunrise at the early parts of autumn here in Northwest Indiana. Georgia wore a handmade dress that my mamaw made my mom when she was a teen. We wanted a more serious/ mysterious feel to the shoot, which was rather difficult because we both tend to be ridiculous at times. We awoke long before sunrise to do hair and make up, and make it out to a marsh in North Judson. The fog was so thick over the marsh we could barely see the landscape. I love how milky the air was just before the sun rose. I think these images fit the time of year perfectly…

I have another special fall blog post coming up of this girl. Here are some images that I had to share, but thought needed a separate post. Georgia meet little hen, little hen meet Georgia.
