This darling little girl had to do some pretending when we took these pictures! Here is the final result - so cute, right?
And here is what we started with! She had to pretend the stick was a beautiful flower - she thought that was pretty funny.
And here is the blooming tree that I used to set up the picture.
I have been thinking about this picture for awhile, and I don't think I'm quite done with it yet (my daughter wants to try it too) - but what a lot of fun this is!
The original pictures. Obviously there are more original pictures than this - I tinkered with it for awhile. But here are the 2 main sources:
This is one of my favorites! I have been collecting butterfly pictures for a long time now and I used real butterfly wings, I just changed the colors to match. The colors all matching in this picture is important - her dress is perfect!
Here she is hanging from the tree- full-size. Cute, but not nearly as cute as the finished picture!
Here are the wings - in orange. :)
This little girl was my next client, and I was on a roll! I had her hang from a tree also, and changed the color of her wings.
She is a little taller and it was harder for her to hang and keep her feet off the ground!
If you like the idea of creative photography, which obviously sometimes involves photoshop, I'd love to talk with you about a fun session for your kids. It's a fantastic way to celebrate their imaginations! You can give me a call or email.
You can see some other examples of creative children's photography here. Or, you can also sign up for my newsletter if you'd like to know what specials I have planned or what's coming next.
