"Getting this done is the best decision we ever made. Quote of the day from my big kid, upon seeing herself as a fairy, "Wow, I guess I am pretty!" - how about that for making her feel secure about herself as she becomes a tween? Priceless. Fairyography creates nothing short of magic."
You look at her and it hits you... how much longer will she play with those dolls? When will she stop pretending? She’s getting so tall now, and it’s so fast! Capture these moments before they’re gone forever. She’s only this little... once upon a time.
You and I will chat about what you have in mind for the session, this is what you love most about your daughter and what you'd like to remember in her photos. Don't worry if you don't have any ideas about what you'd like her shoot to look like, I have plenty for both of us! Her experience is half of an amazing photo session, let's make it something she'll remember and talk about for years!
Once you book, you'll get email or text reminders about each appointment and weather updates leading up to the shoot day. I will then begin crafting any of the props we'll be using for the photo session so that I have everything we need for photo day!
I know, you're worried. You're thinking "But my girl is wild and I know she won't sit still for photos!" or maybe you're thinking "Oh my gosh, I know my girl is amazing but she's so shy she takes a while to warm up... will we have time?"
Yes, I promise, I know.
Fairy sessions are SO FUN and I’m often told at the end of the session that the giggling kid that I was just with for an hour on a stroll through the forest is usually super shy. Not with me! I went to school for Early Childhood Education so that I could work in preschool. I am crazy silly and super patient.
I ENJOY being with your daughters, Plus I know what’s appropriate for her age and how to run a session. I speak TO her like a person, and not at her. I read her and I know when she’s done for the day. There are no crying princesses at my photo appointments. You'll come and leave with a happy, thrilled little girl who will talk about how she was a fairy for weeks and months afterwards.
You'll come to the studio for the reveal of your images. See them all large on my studio TV screen and get my professional recommendations about which ones will go well together. You'll see a pre-design of an album so that you can know what your girl's story will look like laid out, no guesswork needed! Of course, you can change anything you want, but it'll be super easy for you to see it all.
Once your order is in and I've check it over, you'll be emailed or called right away so you you can take your babies home! Your framed art will be ready to hang immediately once you get it home so you can enjoy looking at your wall art right away.
When you visit my studio you will be able to see, touch and hold each of our professionally sourced heirloom products. I want you to know why my albums are heavier than the ones from other places. I want to show you the difference between luster finish and deep matte.
Hold the product. Feel the difference. Know what you’ll be getting, and be thrilled with your custom artwork!
I have a whole list of gardens and various places that I photograph in and around Athens, GA. I have a studio with a backdrop spae as well as a private garden. I also have flown to several places throughout the US for clients who wanted photos closer to them. I return to Seattle yearly and I've also taken clients in New Orleans, Austin, Orlando, and more.
Yes I do! I have a whole room full of dresses and wings and crowns and other props just waiting for you! My dresses fit a range of ages from baby to kid through teen and right to adults.
Don't worry about that at all! I have 18 years of picture-taking experience, plus I was a pre-school teacher before I became a photographer. I have zero trouble getting a child to feel comfortable and do what I need them to be doing.
"What you do is proof that there is magic in this world.
My daughters still talk about their session with you as one of the best days of their lives. I don't know how you do it but they each think you are their very best friend.
We loved our experience with you so much we traveled across the country to see you again. My fairy pictures of my daughters are true treasures. Not only are they beautiful but they captured the magic of my daughter's childhood."

Fairyography offers different types of albums for your family, fairytale, and dancer photo sessions.
Each album comes beautifully presented, wrapped in special paper and a stunning box for gifting. I offer several different sizes: 14x14, 12x12, 10x10, 8x8, and a 16x8 that opens vertically for an ultra modern look. If you'd rather a non-square layout, that's available as well.
There are so many custom features and fun ways to make each album unique! Click the button below for more details.
A beautifully handmade torn edge watercolor paper fine art print, floating in front of silk or linen wrapped around a wooden block. A delicate looking finished art piece with class that doesn't need to be framed.
My favorite product I offer! They combine custom craftsmanship and handmade details with fashion-forward looks. Luxurious leathers and distinctive fabrics compliment your cover image and you choose from the acrylic crystal cover, an images stripe, or the photo indent.
Each handmade canvas is printed onto smooth paper, then transferred to the canvas backing. The canvas material is hand shaved to remove imperfections, then hand-stretched onto a solid wooden frame. Brushstrokes are then applied by hand to follow the contours of the subjects in the image.
