When Jennifer Wilcox Photography asked me to please consider coming out to Seattle for fairy sessions, I never really thought it would actually happen. Then she told me she’d blocked off dates, found locations for me.. suddenly I was going! I spent a week out there in Seattle Washington, getting to know her three amazing girls. I had such a great time, and we’re already talking about more trips!

Part 3 of 3, because this was a three day, four hundred mile, six location EPIC shoot. These girls were in those dresses and wings for a collective 18 hours, I think.

Day 3 – We stayed in Forks (vampire country!) overnight, then went to the Hoh rainforest. I had this stunning shot planned in the Hall of Mosses, so mom and I (mostly her though) hauled seriously 60lbs of combined generator, fog machine, and tupperware filled with dry ice up the mountainside. It was going to be cooled fog rolling through the mossy trees, fairies slowly walking through it. Then it all went to FAIL. It started when I set the tupperware full of dry ice down on the ground and it broke from being frozen. Seriously, big crack all up the side, ice falling out. So we tape that up and get it all hooked to the fog machine and generator.. start up the generator.. fog machine does not turn on. Send mom down to see if she can get cell reception.. An hour later she returns, we try again.. no love. Mom and I are both about to cry. We just hauled 60lbs of crap up this trail for nothing. Back down the trail trying not to get run over with all this crud in the wagon, we decide to beg the construction crew at the parking lot for power so we can run this thing. They come over and get the machine running for us and bid us goodbye. Fog machine runs (wait for it).. for 10 minutes. Yep. The fog machine idea was seriously the most epic fail I’ve ever witnessed.

So we throw everything back in the car and head out. Having repaired the swing, we’re now looking for a good tree on the side of the road to toss it into really fast for a few shots. Right after seeing a cow on the side of the road, I spot one finally. Toss everything in the tree, looks great, shoot the photos, done. Toss it all back in the car, and head to our last spot. I’ve read about this online, but none of us there have ever been, so we have no clue what to expect. Well, I can say that I’m glad we stopped! We had it to ourselves for about 15 minutes before a family came behind us. I apologized for blocking the view and they yelled back “What?? This is entertainment!!” It was FREEZING cold water. So what did I do? I turn to the girls and say “$5 if you get in it.” We tossed what was left of the dry ice in the water for some amazing fog. At least it was good for something!

Day 2 – Fairholm and Sol Duc Falls. This was a day of me being nervous. Our first stop was trying to find this tree, which took us a while, but it was worth it. Then I freaked out while the girls totally climbed that tree like bosses. I was envisioning broken bones and the end of the shoot and blood everywhere.. mom’s like “Heather, they’re fine.” So afterwards I picked a spot that actually caused them more harm than the tree.. a nice mossy bed.. filled with blackberry thorns. Good job to me. So we continue onward and hit the Sol Duc trail and falls. I think about 10 people stopped the girls for photos on our way up that trail.. I pick out spots for the individual photos of the girls.. once I rounded the corner and the other two are playing on a tree that crosses a low fall, but still high up enough to fall in easily. OMG, freakout! But pictures first, then freak out, okay, Heather? Augh. So we get to the falls and it’s a HUGE waterfall with HUGE rocks. Mom says “I can get them out of those rocks.” Cue another freakout for me, I’m imagining them going over the falls.. death death dying. Of course, they’re fine.

Part 1 of 3, because this was a three day, four hundred mile, six location EPIC shoot. These girls were in those dresses and wings for a collective 18 hours, I think.

Day 1 – I fell in love bit by bit.. these girls, these woods, even the horses (which I am still afraid of) were less scary than usual. I think it was magic. Unicorns were thanks to Fredricksborg Danish Warmblood Fred the Horse and Jerry the mini horse at Rainier Therapeutic Riding
The mission of Rainier Therapeutic Riding is to utilize equine-assisted therapy to promote healing, teamwork and fellowship dealing with Post Traumatic Stress and other physical and emotional challenges faced by our active and retired Military.
Not only was Debbie there and kind to us, but she has a whole crew for us. She painted horse hooves, got the horns on, managed the horses, kept everyone safe, kept the horses happy and fed.. basically she made the day magic.

These girls’ mother and I spent hours the night before this hot gluing real moss to the swing and testing the ropes to make sure they held weight and looked good with the ivy. I got them together and was setting up the girls for individual photos when Mr. Fabulous the unicorn decided to walk through the swing (note to self, horses cannot see in front of them). 1400lbs of big boy went RIGHT through it like it wasn’t even there. Luckily, the swing was repairable after this day and makes a reappearance later on.

These ladies were a last minute addition after a cancellation, but I couldn’t tell at all. They have such AMAZING hair too!
