This beautiful golden morning princess photo session took place in the Audubon Park in New Orleans, LA. I fully styled this session around the dress she's wearing. It's a glorious tea length golden dress with hand embroidered butterflies and little flutter sleeves. To carry the butterfly theme through, I cut out about 50 paper butterflies, spray painted them gold and sprinkled them with ultra fine gold glitter. After ombre painting an ivory canopy and spraying some ivy golden as well, I attached the gold butterflies to to the canopy and ivy. I also made her a golden butterfly crown to wear and added the butterflies to a golden cage also.
I wanted to really emphasize the golden sunrise and how it filtered through the trees and canopy.
