Fairy Photo Tip

So how do you score a picture of a toddler sleeping in full fairy costume?? Be warned the answer may spoil all the warm fuzzies you get when seeing this magical photo...
YOU POKE HER WITH A STICK!! She isn't sleeping folks she is playing dead. This photo was taken right after a massive dual that I won. TWO POINTS FOR MOM!! Rest assured she got me back in round two with a semi-fatal wound to the thigh. My motto...All is fair in love, war and photography.

Thank you to Jania's Photo Enhancements for transporting her from a sheet in the front yard to a magical fairy garden. I adore doing my own photo editing but some photographs were meant for the masters.

That is stunning!! That's exactly what I was hoping for when I waaaay too much money for my daughter's fairy portraits. They weren't that, I promise.

I love that you poke your kids with sticks! ;-)

These photos are magical, but I think the real magic starts with the beautiful fairy posing in her mystical surroundings.
I assumed my friends pics of her lil' girl were so easy to take,since she had so many. I'm now informed. There's a whole lot of bribing, coaxing, pleading, gnashing... Then there's the wee one. LOL!

Thanks for your visit. Come by anytime.
Sweet Holiday Wishes,
