Georgia & Lois have been magically transformed into woodland fairies for a unique portrait that will bring them joy in the years to come. Beautiful light, realistic stage props and artistic vision combine to create a full sized fairy dell inside our modern studio. When the time is right, pixie dust swirls through our studio making it a fairy haven for babies and children up to 11 yrs …. making their dreams a reality!

Your child will believe they are a REAL fairy – we even use a special light inside of our fairy lamp that glows with each camera ‘click’ … if you look carefully you will see tiny wings inside the lamp – Georgia & Lois caught a real fairy!

All costumes and props are provided and are handmade by us to compliment the quality and ambiance of your child’s fairy portrait. The woodland fairy costume with its green and gold hues enhances the amazing, rich evening glow feel of the dell whilst your child becomes part of the fantasy surroundings of the dell’s foliage, toadstools and bridge with its babbling brook below …

Thank you to Georgia & Lois who were perfect little fairies for me last Saturday – I will need to buy a new box of tissues for the veiwing room won’t I girls? – Your Mummy was so overwhelmed by the pictures of you being fairies that there was not a dry eye in the house!

I just adore this image of the sisters looking adoring of each other – Such a good ‘connection’ between them and their little fairy adventure.

I had a lovely time in the fairy dell with this little cutie! It was Abigails first ‘real’ portrait shoot since being a babe in arms and she loved every second of it!

“Hello Sheryl, We got our pictures last week, but we’ve been so super busy I haven’t had the time to say thank you yet! They are amazing! I love the acrylic one especially and I’ve made sure that everyone has seen the rest of the pictures. Thank you so much for making Abi’s first photo shoot experience a fantastic one. She still talks about being a fairy and finding the little fairy in the lantern. She looks lovely in the pictures.”

I find, as a mum and as a photographer, that the best way to make children relaxed in my fairy studio set is to tell them the story of how ‘flash’ (the real fairy who lives inside the lantern) came to be working with me and all about the sort of tricks that my little model and I can pull to get her to light up when it’s time for the photos to be taken. Giving the children a little ‘mission’ helps too – Can they count how many times ‘Flash’ lights up? Can they help me to prove to the world that faires are real? Abigail was an absolute gem! A complete natural at playing fairies. We had great fun with the sparkly magic wand whilst I created some very special pictures for the family on a balmy saturday morning at the studio in Tintern.

The colours of the handmade fairy gown and crown made her look even more adorable and credible as a woodland fairy for her very special time in the fairy dell.

Thank you to her parents for making the trip over from Bristol – It is worth the trip over to my studio for something this fabulous, Tintern itself is a great place to visit with lots to see and do – Many make a day trip out of their visit to us and take in a walk along the riverbank and a nice lunch somewhere. Tintern Old Station just outside the village is a great place to kill a few hours with the kids.

Thank you Abigail for being so good for me! Please tell Mummy that your artwork is winging its way to you very shortly and I am sure your special pictures will be treasured for always. Sheryl x

This is Fin & Alana from last week at their after-school session. Both were completely entranced by Flash (the ‘real’ fairy who lives in the lantern and lights up for her fairy friends). It was nice to include a little boy in the fairy dell today! Fin loved fishing from the bridge.

Personally, I am in love with his little red elf like cheeks :) I always have a few pairs of cut off denim dungarees in my prop cupboard for just such an occasion.

His big sister Alana was in her element as a ‘fairy queen’ and decided early on in the experience that Fin was the ‘fairy prince’. Adorable!

This is the second time I have photographed these two, The last time being a few years ago for a studio portrait (which I noticed still has pride of place as their Mum’s phone wallpaper!). It’s so lovely to see them both again and for such a magical portrait experience this time too!

Fairies is certainly something unique to treasure. Where possible I try to shoot thoughtful and natural pictures as well as the more posed and smiley ones, giving you a choice of styles of images – Your children being ‘real’ fairies, connected with the dell and each other AND the ‘granny pleasing’ smiles and full open faces.

This is especially useful when choosing your images to take advantage of our Value Packages – It means you can package up something for everyone, an arty canvas for you and a smiley print for Grandparents etc.

Siblings that have their experience together in this way are photographed together and individually in a variety of poses during one session. We welcome up to 3 siblings in one session, further children can be added – please contact us to discuss in person.

Thank you for being fab models again Fin & Alana,

Sheryl (aka Mrs. Fairy!) x
