Pittsburgh Fairy Photography
Flashback Friday post from 2013- one of my first fairy sessions
She was excited to play dress-up but like most 3 year olds, she was a strong willed little one who loved to be in control of things. It was challenging but she was sweet and imaginative and had a very patient photographer who just waited for the magic to happen. And then, it did…
I love photographing little ones like Miss Bug. She challenges me and keeps me on my toes because in the blink of an eye, she will turn and run. It’s like coaxing out a sweet little flower, patiently waiting for it to bloom and when it blooms, it is magical. I look back at these images and just remember the laughing as I watched her run away and then when she caught a glimpse of the “fairies” floating in the air, how she took charge to make sure that no one (including the young family out for a walk) would make too much noise and frighten the fairies away.
If you think there’s no way your child would sit and pose for pictures, I’m the photographer for you! I won’t make them sit and pose. I’ll simply ask them to play 🙂
Even after 4 years these pictures are magical and timeless.
I am so very happy that we did this with Katie. Her fairy pictures are some of my favorite – I will cherish them always! – Erin Peterson
