Think of the happiest things. It’s the same as having wings….Peter Pan
A while ago I went to a garage sale and saw the most gorgeous little gold dress. I knew I had to have it.. It was a simple design but I knew it belonged on a faerie. I didn’t see it as most people would…. I saw the gossamer wings that belonged on the back of it and the sparkles of faerie dust that would dance around it, making it sparkle in the sunlight. It made me so happy to put it in my car and take it home. I put it straight onto a mannequin so it could inspire me to create my faerie.
I met the lovely Annica and knew that this dress would be perfect on her. So, along with Kirsty, the best assistant in the world (and one hell of a sports photographer), we went to a little creek here in Katoomba and got our glitter on. We climbed over rocks and sticks to get the right look and I have to say, when I’d finished I was thrilled with the result. I changed the colour in one of the images and left it gold in the other.
It’s not always the big wins that make us the happiest.. Finding the perfect dress for a shoot may not be someone else’s idea of perfection but it is mine. Sometimes it’s the smaller things that put the biggest smiles on our faces. And thinking of the happiest things IS the same as having wings. Yes indeed!!
