Boy and Girl in Fairy Glen {Santa Ynez Fairytale Photography} {Solvang Child Photographer}


These darling siblings played in the park for our whimsical storybook photo session, and later on while editing, I created just a wee bit more magic to the fabulous nature that was already there.

Purple Hat and Twirl {whimsical child photography}


PURPLE HAT and TWIRL {Whimsical Child Photography}





With a flowing dress, a pink cape, a purple hat and lime green sunglasses, this delightful little girl skipped along the path, twirling every now and then. This was such a FUN PHOTO SESSION! 
I gave my free-spirited model very little direction; she had wonderful ideas, and I just kept clicking my camera! My favorite moments are capturing children at play!

Alice Through the Looking Glass {Alice in Wonderland Art}




ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS :: ALICE IN WONDERLAND :: I just saw the movie trailer for the Alice in Wonderland sequel, ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS. There was a very brief split-second scene in the preview with a hat-shaped house, some mountains, etc, and that image stayed in my head, so I had to make up a version of my own, just for fun!

Cookie Fairies {child fairy photography}


"COOKIE FAIRIES" - VINTAGE CHILDREN :: The cookie fairies helped the little baker mix up some of her favorite delicious oatmeal cookies. Being fairies, they of course had to add some colorful pink buttercream frosting to the cookies! © CastlesNCrowns Fairy Tale Storybook Art.

BEHIND THE SCENES: This cookie bowl has been in my family for at least 60 years and was handed down to me by my mother. I happily bake cookies in it with my grandchildren, though it's cracked and old. Memories....

Spring at the Parisian Flower Carousel {child fairytale photography}


SPRING at the "Parisian Flower Carousel".

There is something nostalgic about a Carousel or Merry-Go-Round. For this image, I wanted the viewer to be looking through an overgrowth of flowers, at the little girl, who is pointing towards something near the beautiful carousel.
