Have you ever been inspired by once upon a time, whimsy, or happily every after. Can any woman, with conviction, state that they have never, at one time or another, dreamed of being a princess.... or at the very least getting to wear those dresses? The castle, the flowers, the woods... the places our imagination disappear to with the slightest encouragement. I think we all need that, at some level or another. The idea of beautiful things, the concept of "anything is possible." Where would we be without our dreams?
Growing up my best adventures were in books... I was a princess of Egypt, I captained a ship, I fell down a rabbit hole into an impossible world. Easily understood, my love for all things whimsical had an early start and continues on through my art and photography.
Kara's concept for this whole shoot blows me away and the team that brought this vision together gives me cold chills with their talent. Sometimes we all need to let our imaginations run wild.

Ellis completely rocked this burgundy strapless mermaid dress. And the art deco inspired necklace along with the red and burgundy roses as a headpiece / halo perfectly complimented her dramatic and whimsical look.
Jessica Pattison with Tangles Salon designed the ideal full hairstyle for this shoot. A little crimp a little curl and a whole lot of volume went into this style along with a braid pulling Ellis's Brunette hair to the side.
A little black tulle and the perfect burgundy / merlot fall lip color.
I have to gush over how much I loved the cinderella feel of this dress. The ice blue, the ruffle details, the fitted sweetheart bodice and the full princess skirt.
Here's to Robin Walenceus with Viola Bella and the crazy amazing flower halo's she made for our fairytale photoshoot. I mean just look at these pale blush and rose peonies.
This deep smoky eye look that Vaughan Free of Merle Norman of Greenwood gave us really made Ellis's eyes pop.
