This sweetheart.. she took a little while to open up, but when she did, she went ALL out! This was the first time I’ve ever played catch with the fairy wand at the shoot, but that thing was tossed back and forth countless times!
Meet the Butterfly Fairy. This girl’s mom said “I don’t have anything special in mind, make it whatever you want.” and I replied ” I dunno.. I have a lot of crazy ideas?” and mom said “Nope, it’s cool, you just do your thing.” So I went to the notebook where I keep all my ideas just waiting for the perfect girl and finally settled on this one. In the Disney Fairies movie ‘The great fairy rescue’, we see that fairies paint butterfly wings. So that’s the concept for this shoot. She’s that artistic fairy that paints butterflies.
300 paper butterflies, one dress, one crown, one necklace, one belt, two pairs of fairy wings, one glitter covered paint palette, one glitter covered paint jar, six rainbow paint brushes, one silver jar for glitter, 20 colorful feathered butterflies, tape, scissors, 500 yards of fishing line, one moss green blanket, one roll of glue dots, one bird cage, one gallon of water, and one set of makeup later..
This girl is model material for sure. She isn’t nervous in front of the camera, she’s gorgeous, and she just does her own poses and looks great no matter what. The girl at the salon that did her hair was raving about how fabulous she was too.
See the video of the session at the bottom!
It’s no secret that I love behind the scenes things. After all, I do have a whole section for it here! So this little girl is SO incredibly animated that I got so many outtakes of her talking or reacting to something.. etc. I just knew I’d have to make a behind the scenes post. I also shot some video, but that’s still coming. Have a laugh with me this week on these top 10 outtake shots of this shoot!
