pittsburgh childhood imagination session | The magic is in the book
“You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book.”
The pre”teen” | tween years… oh man oh man do I remember these years. I was suborn , awkward, I was trying to figure out my place- who I was and what I wanted to be. I was still a child in mind (where I wanted to play with Barbies ) However, I wasn’t looking like the little toddler in my head.
I am not a pre-teen mum YET … However, I am no stranger to it. I have a niece who is now going on 17 ( WHAT ??!!!?? When did that happen ? ) I of course myself went through these years and I will tell you ONE thing. Mum’s are not getting enough of their babies photos at this age.
I was lucky enough to have this little beauty in my studio ( last year (2018)… yes I am behind on blogging) . Do want to hear something funny … Her theme|concept was actually Harry Potter. We had Harry Potter books, color and accessories. It was really fun & cute – However, I asked her if she trusted me to go into another direction out of the dark, magical world she knows best & she trusted me. I had brought “extra” things to the set . Pastel books, a few dresses and some concepts that I sketched out. I brought her out of her “comfort” zone. Dad & Grandma and then mum ( after she saw the soft proofing gallery) were SHOCKED that she agreed and actually LOVED these photos.
I mean … I say it all the time. Sometimes it takes a little faith , trust and pixie dust.
Here are some of the photos from her “light and airy” set.
