When Stephanie Krupika Photography asked me to please consider coming out to Idaho for fairy sessions, I never really thought it would actually happen. I wasn’t good enough to be a traveling photographer, no one out there would want me, it’ll take forever to fill all the spots I’d need to go if we got them at all…. Then she filled them all in less than a week and suddenly I was going! I spent a week out there in Lewiston Idaho, getting to know more sweet girls and doing fairy sessions. I had such a great time, and we’re already talking about more trips!

These girls couldn’t be more different, but you can still tell they just love each other to bits.

This session was magical! The majestic horse, the beautiful light, the so sweet girls, amazing. The girls’ mother even made the ‘unicorn magic’ jar!

    Your work is so inspriring. To think that you weren’t good enough to travel is crazy to me! ;) I can’t thank you enough for giving all these mamas a once in a lifetime experience for their little girls. This is a moment they will never get back, and these enchanting pictures are more than any of us could ever ask for. Thank you so very much, from the bottom of my heart for coming all the way to Idaho to make dreams come true.ReplyCancel

These three girls cracked me up their whole session. I felt like I was one of the family. The girls were silly and loving and I even got a hug when I left.

Horse-02

This horse has been SUCH a pain but really a fun project for me to work on at home. I went looking for carousel horses on Craigslist and found what I thought was a great one, but after driving two hours to get there, we loaded her up and found out that she was plastic.. and had come from a smoker’s home.

Horse-03

A little internet research later and I find out that she’s a converted hobby horse. She started life as one of those spring-horses that kids bounce on. The hot glued flowers covered the holes where the springs used to be. See the WH on her tushie? That’s “wonder horse”.  She started out looking like this.

Horse-01

So we got home and I set her up for a photo, because I wanted a before and after set, since I knew I’d have to repaint her.

Horse-04

Her first bath (it took three to get the smoke smell out). I scraped all the hot clue off too, thank goodness I was already plannign to repaint her since I took off a lot of paint too.

Horse-05

Her base coat of primer white, then a coat of soft ivory over it.

Horse-06

Testing out pinks, this color was too flamingo-pink, the other was too fuchsia pink, so I ended up mixing them.

Horse-07

It took a lot of work to paint those hooves gold.. Laying down on the job has it’s perks, I guess.:P

10543645_924010107615005_669812456283851828_n

All painted, but still missing something.. I think she needs some front and back bits to the saddle and a horn.

Horse-08

A little brain surgery and some hot glue later…

10525730_925353230814026_7147654944866798661_n

FINALLY, she’s done. Repainted, added a horn, cleaned the brass, added ribbons, filled her with industrial foam, and gave her a new base for stability, she’s ready for some princesses!

    Hello Miss Heather,
    I stumbled across your site when doing research for ideas on how to improve my own wonder-horse-to-carousel-horse project. Your images came up and I about died! LOVE what you have done with this amazing prop! If it’s not too forward of me, might I ask how you came to upgrade your horse to have a horn? I love unicorns and often, to the annoyance of my husband and kids, claim to, in fact, BE the last unicorn stuck in human form. lol. Of course, the only thing I simply had to do with my carousel project was convert it into a unicorn. But sadly, I have not been able to come up with how… Any chance you’d be up for sharing? I thoroughly enjoyed your site and what you do with all your creative skills. Keep up the good work. And thank you.

      Brandi, I made a horn from Sculpey clay, baked it, drilled a hole in her head, then hot glued the horn into the hole!ReplyCancel
