Copyright © 2017 Tricia S. | Castles N Crowns Fairy Tale Photo Art

CINDERELLA PRINCESS DIGITAL BACKGROUND and WHIMSICAL FAIRY TALE PHOTO EDIT: I had a wonderful time creating this Cinderella Princess digital backdrop for a special little girl whose mom bought her this lovely Cinderella dress especially for this whimsical edit! I thought I'd share the Before and After with you!

How to use: Using your favorite photo editing software, remove your subject from the existing background and place it on the digital backdrop, then add any other stock elements you want, adjust the colors and tones to help model blend into background, and save your file to print or share on social media! Have fun creating your own photo composite for fairy photography or digital scrapbooking! 

{Digital Backgrounds Available Here}.

Whimsical Edit Before and After {children's fairy tale photo art}

BOOKS AND BUTTERFLIES! This darling little girl with a sweet smile inspired me to create this whimsical edit. Though I used the parent's own photograph for this creative edit, when I do a child photography session myself, my style is usually to let the child choose their own poses (like this mom did here). If children are relaxed and feel they have some freedom to be themselves, we often get delightful poses naturally.

For this image, I just played and had fun, and didn't do much compositing. Normally, I take 2 days to create a full composite of many, many layers. Sometimes simple is better!

Butterfly Signal Fantasy Art

Copyright © 2017 Tricia S. | Castles N Crowns Fairy Tale Photo Art

BUTTERFLY SIGNAL was inspired the Bat Signal. This fantasy art piece is not my usual style, (which is children, fairy tales, and storybook illustrative portraits), but it was part of a photoshop group challenge and was fun to create.

VINTAGE BOY AT TOY EMPORIUM: FAIRY TALE PORTRAIT Before and After

Little Luke's mom said he likes to dress up in vintage wear, which sparked the idea for creating a vintage toy emporium that he might be looking in. Is he waiting for the store to open in the morning? Or did it just close at night? :) {Parent provides a photo, I provide the hours of creative editing! Fairy Photography Fun!}
