Unicorn Photos in Athens and Watkinsville
Unicorn photo sessions are Fairyography's most in-demand limited edition sessions all year! Sky the unicorn returns for photography every May in Watkisnville at Piccadilly Farms. I provide dresses and crowns for girls sizes 4-14.
Because Sky is a live horse who cannot see her feet, for safety's sake I don't offer these sessions for girls under 4 years old.
Piccadilly Farm allows us to use a field at their beautiful nursery every year for these pictures! I love how soft and green everything is there. Sky the unicorn is trained and very calm, read more about her below!
When I planned to have magical fantasy unicorn photo sessions in Atlanta Georgia, I'd never imagined it would be as adorable as this! The rainbow dress and gold star princess crown on this little blonde girl is beautiful in the backlit woods and forests of North GA.
Each child that has her photos done with this whimsical unicorn has a wonderful time hugging her, kissing her, walking her, and giggling with her. As a photographer, watching these moments is SO CUTE! The unicorn's soft white fur and little delicate horn pairs perfectly with the couture girls dresses and princess crowns. The tiny flowers around her neck and her dainty little horse hooves are also covered in glitter and sparkle in the sun. Little girls can gently braid her mane while whispering secrets into her soft ears. These dreamy portrait appointments are the best of the southeast and are sold out quickly every year!
What I love most about these fantastic fairytale photo sessions is that the unicorn is totally safe for children. She's actually trained like a dog! She knows how to stand, to walk, to stop on command. Her little ears perk right up for treats too. She's kind and loves girls from toddlers and kids all the way to teenagers.
The location in Watkinsville GA is a plant nursery, so they have some of the most gorgeous lawn and trees available around. The lighting there is perfect for pictures too, softly filtered through the leaves.
How a Unicorn Photo Session Goes
Unicorn sessions are each 30 minutes long, and we make sure it's an experience for your girls. Some other photographers give only 10 minutes for each spot they offer, but that's not enough time for having fun and enjoying the photos.
We will begin by getting your daughter changed into her unicorn photo dress. I'll have picked out a special dress in her size, along with a crown to go with it. Dresses will be long or short, but always in pastel colors or whites so they don't overwhelm in the photos.
Elaine (Sky's trainer) is on site and in charge of Sky at all times. Your girl will pet her, hug and kiss her, give her treats, walk with her (and if she's big enough, run with her). Elaine knows horse body language and will keep everyone safe while working.
Sky will snuffle your daughter's hair, go through her dress looking for more treats, eat all the grass around her and dribble it everywhere, stick out her tongue, and generally love on your girls while enjoying the pictures.
Wardrobe is important for these sessions! I like pastel colors the best because the unicorn is white! I think anything dark tends to overwhelm her instead of being a compliment in the images, so I tend to stick to light colors. Pink, baby blues, silvers, whites, lilacs, etc. I also tend to like longer more full dresses for these sessions as well, they just tend to be a bit dressier, but I use shorter ones on hot days. I provide the wardrobe for these sessions, so you don't have to worry about it!
Meet Sky the Unicorn
Sky the unicorn is a miniature horse. Not a pony, she's smaller and daintier. Mini horses usually stand just 30-38 inches tall. Mini horses come in all kinds of colors, but Sky is a snowy white. The funny thing is that when she was born, she was fully black coated, then slowly changed over years. When she's not cleaned up for photo sessions, she enjoys rolling in the clay and being as dirty as possible.
She's trained like a dog. Sky can jump, turn, stay, walk beside gently. She can only carry about 40lbs, but she can pull a lot more, so she's also trained to pull a small child in a two-wheeled driving cart. Elaine is Sky's owner and trainer, and she takes care of all of Sky's commands at our photo sessions. Elaine and I have learned what makes a photo session with unicorns run smoothly, so we can work together to get the best images in the 30 minutes we have for the photos. Sky has a very soft horn so everyone is safe from sharp points.
