Fairy Photo Shoots for Toddlers
A toddler dressed up as a Fairy is the perfect & fun way to remember those blurry first two years of life.
a baby girl all dolled up in the cupcake dress, with fairy wings and a pink crown was the sweetest little child to photograph outside in a grassy area with wildflowers. She clapped her hands for her mom and her smile sparkled in the way that communicated pure joy to the adults around her. Sometimes little children will cry or protest when they have a flower crown on, or try to rip it off. Not this little girl though.
One year old baby photos are such a tradition for new parents and they are only this little once time ever! Before they turn into walking talking, sassy, negotiating children. (Ive got 3 kids myself) . Its fun to have the memory of them, and oftentime in that blurry new mom first year phase of life you arent sleeping that great and dont always remember your baby so little because you are soooooo tired. This is where I come in, and when parents book a photo shoot with me they know that they will have a set of images to remember the little smiles, the tiny feet, the tiny hands and the joyous expressions of innocence.... (before your child discovers all the things in life they will find, which may or may not drive you slightly crazy and filled with longing of the good old days, when the sound of your voice and smile healed everything in the world and stopped the slightest whimper.)
Toddlers make really funny hand gestures and funny expressions sometimes. One of the things that makes me laugh is when a child waves their hands around for no reason, it means I can put cute, creative elements into the photographs later, such as flying butterflies, sparkles and all sorts of magical AlixArtPhotography things.. I like to call them Fairy Magic touches.
You will also find me sometimes adding in my magical fairy reflection ponds into my favorite poses and sometimes a few extra flowers will magically appear when I'm editing.
