Story book – A Fantasy Picture Story

My beautiful little girl LOVES to tell stories, to make little books and just about anything where she can use her very vivid imagination. This can prove to be very helpful when I want to make some images of her. I pick the places, pick her clothing and a few props and she takes it from there. She goes off on her adventure and I am there as just a witness to capture it all on camera. Of course now and then I have to interrupt and have her turn a little this way or that way or give little suggestions to add into her story that I think will translate in images.

We did this shoot last year and it took me a whole year to actually get to the images and get them processed. I was planning on getting them all printed in a book with her story (her words) as a keep sake for her to always remember to hang on to her imagination. However while I was processing and getting close to getting the book ordered, she stopped me. She has requested that we go back out to the same spot and get more images to add to the book. Of course we now have to wait until the weather breaks and it’s once again nice and warm. However, if we every get a fairly warm winter day where there is still plenty of snow on the ground, we just may have to take advantage of that as well. At some point I think I will have to stop her and say, lets finish this book and you can start another.

Here are a few of the images from her story book. It’s about a little girl who wandered into a fairy forest….and I will let your imagination take you away with her imagery and story telling just by her expressions and actions.

    • It’s so amazing to just let them go off into their own little world and you’re just a spectator. The most genuine expressions and emotions come to life. I bet your daughter would love to see her the star of her own story. What little girl wouldn’t though right? 😉
